Oops! Brit Visited By Family Services Dep’t Again
This just in from the Spears/Federline camp: the pop star and her rapping hubby might not be the most responsible of parents.
Two months after Britney Spears was paid a visit by the Department of Children and Family Services when photographs surfaced of Spears driving and holding then four-month-old son, Sean Preston, in her lap instead of in his car seat, the singer was contacted again by the DFCS. This time, a sheriff’s deputy came along as well to investigate reports that the infant was accidentally dropped from a high chair.
The six-month-old child fell on April 1 when his nanny lifted him from his high chair, according to the Los Angeles Times. Something in the chair reportedly snapped and the child fell from the nanny’s arms, bruising his head on the floor.
A doctor examined Sean Preston at the Spears/Federline home, and the couple took the baby to the emergency room six days later to have him re-examined. Spears’ attorney, Martin Singer, said that the hospital was required by law to report the incident to the DCFS.
“DCFS immediately responded and determined there was no problem and no reason to open a formal investigation. They determined that the parents weren’t involved in the injury and nothing was improper within the home,” he said.
