"She collapsed when the dancers went to put her back on her feet. She fell to the floor and landed on one of the dancers' legs," said a source.

"The dancer's tennis shoe smacked Britney in the chest and on the face. It hit her chest with such a force that it caused a four-inch bruise," added the source.

It was reported that Britney's hectic tour schedule and a low blood-sugar level were responsible for the incident.
