Britney Spears Visited By Child Protective Services — Source Calls Abuse Claim 'Absurd'

Britney’s former bodyguard claims the pop star beat her little boys with a belt, but social workers haven’t found any evidence that support his allegations

Britney Spears is under investigation by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services once again, but this time it doesn’t look like the pop star did anything wrong.

One of the mega star’s former bodyguards, Fernando Flores, reportedly accused the 28-year-old mom of whipping her two boys — Sean Preston, 4, and Jayden James, 3 — with a belt last March or April, but sources say his claims are suspicious.

“[Fernando is] an opportunist seeking his 15 minutes of fame,” an insider tells “Flores is a former disgruntled employee that is trying to take advantage of Britney.”

However, California state law requires all claims be investigated, even if they seem fishy. Luckily, when social services visited Britney’s house, all seemed well.

“During the visit by officials, there was absolutely no signs of abuse,” the source says. “The boys are happy well adjusted toddlers that love their mama and Britney is fiercely protective of them. The investigation is 95 percent complete and no further action will be required. All that is essentially going to be done at this point is for the paperwork to be finished and then the case will be closed.”

This is Britney’s third run-in with the DCFS. In 2006, a nanny accidentally dropped Sean Preston on his head, which sparked an investigation. Then in 2008, Britney’s body guard Tony Barretto asked the department to step in because of his client’s erratic behavior. Currently, Britney is under conservatorship of her father and shares custody with her ex, Kevin Federline.
