Britney Investigated For Child Abuse

Even more bad news for Britney Spears. According to TMZ, Britney is being investigated for child abuse and just this morning her lawyer, Kevin's lawyer and an LA County lawyer assigned to cases involving dependents met for an unscheduled hearing.

The details of the case were not disclosed, but I think it goes without saying that this is not a good thing for Brit and her ongoing custody battle. A September 4th custody hearing is apparently scheduled as a follow-up to this morning's impromptu one. Britney may not be winning mother of the year anytime soon (to put it lightly), but I would still be surprised if her behavior were considered abuse. That being said, this is just going to keep getting messier for Brit.

I wish someone in Brittany's family would/could sit her down and talk some sense into her. She needs help before she hurts her children or herself further.

I had child services called on me over 20 times by a vicious in-law who didn't like the fact that my husband and I were seperated at the time. We have since gotten back together, and all the allegations were deemed unfounded, but nothing repairs the damage it did to the kids. They still cringe whenever someone knocks on the door. We always assume it's DCF. I just took my oldest to the dentist yesterday for a cavity... and my kids often have odd sleeping patterns, especially when it's summer. If these things are a crime... I should be in jail then! She may not be the best mom, and like I've said...she probably needs parenting classes. (I took them, they're pretty fun actually.) But if child protective services is going to be investigating her it should be for something more serious. (I, for one, didn't like the pix of her with her baby on her lap while she was driving.) I don't know what to make of this but I feel bad for those kids. And I even feel bad for her. She's troubled. Child protective services changes everything. Our family will never be the same.

What is really sad is that I actually wasted a good 1/2 hour of my life reading all 200 something of these posts - it's just more than I should have crammed into my brain about Britney - she's not worth 5 minutes of my life, let alone a half an hour.

taylor.. coming from k-fed, and seeing that hygene is the main issue, makes me wonder.. you'd think if it was legit you would have seen this come up by the many people who raise those kids.. flower.. i have seen her children smile when they are with her. they are babies, you literally can't predict their circumstances based on what emotions they show on a regular basis.

Over on breathe heavy the allegations are set as bad dental hygine and sleeping/ eating habits for the kids... :OY: Bc its so effin easy ya know to make a 2 and 1 year old brush there teeth every day with out a huge fight an to make them go to bed at exact times and no way would a 2 yaer old or 1 year old be picky with what they eat. GOOD GRIEF! Someone better call cps on me or my friends or hell any other mother for that matter bc ya know kids they just do everything that you tell them all the time so we must be abusive and neglectful. For anyone to call cps based on things thats published in a flipping gossip mag is just STUPID in my opinion. I think this is just K-fed trying further to get those kids and that money. The whole mess shes in, yea could have been prevented, but she doesnt deserve all of this. Why are ppl not going after Kevin when we all know and see he sits there and smokes pot? Isnt that an illegal drug to? sigh

Who cares if it WAS K-fed that filed the complaint to Children Services...if he did, he is obviously concerned. And it's not about more money...he isnt ASKING for more money...just custody. I am so glad he let G'ma Lynne & G'pa watch the boys while he went to work....I feel bad that Britney is denying them visitation to their grandchildren. Never thought I would say this but looks like Kevin is coming around...too bad Britney is GONE....done lost her mind!

I was hoping that too, Robin I was so excited when she got rid of K-Fed and got her little bob and cleaned herself up, but I'm convinced she's bipolar now, because like a few weeks later she was flashing herself and months later she cut all her hair off. And Tinkerbelli I loved Mommie Dearest, "No more wire hangers... EVER!" but I think that's a classic case that shows just because a mom is able to give her kids everything financially doesn't mean that person is a good mom.

Ugh she's such a hot mess. I was really hoping for her to turn it around after the divorce was announced. And there's NO doubt that she's neglectful at best.

I almost feel bad for her. I mean none of us really knows what's going in her life. I really want to give her the benefit of the doubt....but this makes it so difficult. Yikes...hopefully someone objective can make the best decision for the children. poor think that they have all of their parents behavior documented in the media.

Neglect is unacceptable. And please nobody give me that crap that "at least she isn't burning them with cigarettes or beating them" because that's a freaking copout. And if "sources say" something and WE all know it, I'm sure whether Kevin was involved or not, his people have heard the same freaking rumors we have. Stop making excuses for this vapid womanchild.

Sources tell TMZ the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services "abuse investigation" into Britney Spears does not involve physical mistreatment of her children. Sources say the complaint lodged with DCFS involves allegations of poor dental hygiene, as well as poor eating and sleeping habits for her kids. Curiously, although DCFS keeps these allegations secret, they ended up in legal papers filed today by K-Fed's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, suggesting it might have been Fed-Ex himself who lodged the complaint.

It will take JJ or SPF getting "accidentally stepped on or tripped over in the walk-in closet" and then crawling around with a make-shift splint, for CPS to actually do anything....

She clearly has horrible personal hygiene herself; how the "F" do people think she could manage the hygiene of her two boys? GAWD you people expect SO much from this twit - what do you expect? She's a mentally-stunted, bi-polor, self-absorbed hill billy. I'm suprised that she's not on the corner gnawing on a big ol turd....

Who knows what actually goes on in her home with the babies. We know for sure she is out partying all hours of the night, so my guess is she is being investigated more for neglecting them. Is stashing your kids with the nanny endlessly bing neglectful in the eyes of the courts? It will be interesting to see what they find. I highly doubt she would purposefully hurt her babies, but she seems a bit on the edge and not in the right frame of mind. But then, you can never put anything bad past anyone....anyone can surprise you.

Hehe, speaking of bad parents, Kerri1 your pic of Joan Crawford was a horribly abusive mother and the movie "Mommie Dearest" was written by her adopted daughter about Joan's abusive ways.

Her other kids seem to be okay. I don't know FOR SURE, but nothing has ever been brought up to the contrary!

Those kids are going bye-bye. It's sad for everyone involved, but most especially for those two boys. I was the center of a custody battle when I was a kid and it messed me up big time. I hope and pray that those kids go to the parent that has their best interest at heart.
