Britney Spears" woes continue to intensify as she is now being investigated for possible child abuse. The news comes when Spears is involved in a legal battle with ex-hubby Kevin Federline over the custody of their two kids. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) has accused the pop star of being an unsuitable mother after reports of her erratic behaviour were filed. According to reports, Los Angeles Superior Court took up an unscheduled court hearing on August 2, reports the TMZ.
Though the singer was absent during the hearing, her lawyer Dennis Wasser and Federline"s counsel Mark Kaplan attended the proceedings. The hearing raised issue about Sean Preston and Jayden James" dental hygiene, and poor eating and sleeping habits, and does not involve physical mistreatment of her children. Reports also said that K-fed might have himself filed complaints over Spears" parenting skills, according to the Daily Mail. The mum of two has been repeatedly charged of being irresponsible. Recently she is said to have spent the whole night with magician Criss Angel drinking Dom Perignon champagne. The next hearing for the custody case has been scheduled for September 4.
The star has been cleared as a threat to her dogs following an investigation by animal welfare authorities. The Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals (SPCA) in Los Angeles started scrutinising the pop tart last week after reports surfaced that her two young sons were responsible for Yorkshire terrier London's broken leg. However, now the SPCA has confirmed that Spears is a caring dog owner and is no longer on the dog welfare hit list, reports People. An insider reveals that apparently, someone accidentally stepped on the dog when it made its way into one of Spears"s closets. The authorities contacted the vet who treated the little dog for a fracture to one of its legs.
In a statement SPCA said that the Los Angeles branch "has received written confirmation from a veterinarian that Britney Spears's dog London has received proper medical attention for a leg injury." "SPCA would like to thank Ms. Spears for her cooperation on this matter as well as members of the public for their ongoing concern for the welfare of animals," the group added.
Meanwhile, Rihanna has slammed troubled celebrities like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan for not being in control of their lives. The Umbrella hitmaker believes that staying in control and leading a sober life is the key to remaining on the straight and narrow. The 19-year-old singer further says that she fails to understand why troubled young celebrities take so long to seek help."It's sad and I can't understand it. I sympathise with those girls and I want it to stop. I do not understand why they don't wanna help themselves. It's crazy," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. "I have to feel like I'm on my feet. The moment I feel a little iffy, I have to snap out, get back on my feet. I can't understand how people let it get that far. To me you have to have control," she added.
