Is Brit Too Toxic for Her Kids?

12/6/2006 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsWith Britney Spears on a nightlife rampage in recent weeks, everyone's been asking – is this really how the mother of two toddlers should be acting?

Now, reports Page Six, the L.A. Department of Children and Family Services is wondering the same thing. A source says that DCFS has called the pop tartlet trying to set up a meeting, and that they want to check up on Sean Preston and Jayden James. And, of course, as TMZ reported last weekend, Britney's family, especially her mother, is deeply concerned as well, but haven't been able to get through to Britney to intervene.

A rep for the DCFS didn't comment to the Post, but it wouldn't be the first visit they've made to the Spears household. Back in April, when Sean Preston fell from a high chair (and Britney almost dropped the baby on a New York street), the authorities came in to have a look around. No action was taken.

Paris – I Want to Be a Mommy Too!

Meanwhile, Paris Hilton might be a role model to Britney, but it looks like Britney's become a role mommy to Paris. The lodging heiress now says that she wants to have not one, not two, but four babies by the age of 30, according to Life & Style. (Well, she'd better get cookin' --she's almost 26.)

And these motherly impulses are being inspired by none other than Britney – the BFF pair recently spent time with Spears' boys after a night out. What's Paris' particular qualification to be a mother? "I look after animals, so I'd have a lot to give my kids," says Ms. HIlton.

Vaughniston Is Comprehensively Over, We Think

Notice that we took the question mark off that title, because it seems that, after all the ups, downs, engagement rings, and DVD releases, our modern Romeo and Juliet, Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston, are very much finished. PEOPLE reports that the pair, according to reps, have "mutually agreed to end their relationship but continue to be good friends today." The Wagnerian history of the pair's romance is too elaborate to recount here, suffice to say that both did their best in recent weeks (Vince with a lawsuit, Jen with an appearance with Oprah) to give their sinking relationship at least the mirage of buoyancy. Vaughniston, Vinnifer, rest in peace.

Bilson and Brody Call It Quits, For Real

The cutest brunette couple on TV – Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody of "The OC" – have ended their three-year relationship, says People. "It was a typical romance and they just grew apart," says a source. "They've been on and off for a while." The apple-cheeked Bilson was absent at a recent Viper Room gig by Brody's band, Big Japan, which fueled speculation about the couple's status. Still, in October, the pair were spotted holding hands in Toronto, which prompted a source to say: "Exes do hang out."

Party Favors: Rosie Might Star on "Nip/Tuck?" ... Bitchfight Brews Between Trump and Graydon Carter ... Audrey's "Tiffany" Gown Sells for $807,000

Rosie O'Donnell told audience members at "The View" yesterday that she might take a part on "Nip/Tuck" instead of doing a spin-off show, says Access Her character Dawn Budge would own the plastic surgery clinic at the center of the series ... Oh, snap. After years of absorbing abuse from Graydon Carter (and Spy magazine), Donald Trump is clawing back. He tells Page Six that, while he likes Graydon, the "Vanity Fair" editor would, without the backing of his boss Si Newhouse, be "another overweight editor with bad hair" ... The black Givenchy gown that Audrey Hepburn wore to such mesmerizing effect in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" has sold at a Christie's auction for $810,000, and British tabs are whispering loudly that the buyer was none other than Victoria Beckham.

Nicole, I can't tell if your post is serious or if it's meant as a joke. These same wonderful nannies are the ones who let SP fall out of his high chair and crack his head when he was an infant, so I'm not sure why you think they're such acceptable substitutes for parenting.

It's the DCFS's job to investigate neglect and unsuitable parenting claims. Unfortunately for Britney's fans who love to defend her, she's done a very poor job at convincing these folks that she's a hands-on, nurturing mother. Leaving your children to party all night is considered neglect no matter who is at home babysitting. It's not even like their father is home watching them!! He's out and about having a good time, too. The kids are plainly and simply being handed over to others to care for while mom (and dad) partake in questionable behavior. It makes perfect sense that the state wants to know who's minding the children while the parents are out getting loaded.

DFCS need to check on those kids! She is not good for them, going out every night and day showing her bald cooch to the world, drinking in public, carrying glasses of alcohol out of restarauntes, driving while intoxicated, staying out till dawn. It was only a matter of time before someone got involved in this train wreck. Her kids should be taken from her and given to the father,she doesn't want to spend time with them, she only thinks about her and what she wants and that is NOT the way a mother is. A mother puts her children FIRST.

She's not going to stop partying like she's 19 because she thinks life is all about her, thanks to her DUMB ASS fans. You idiots created an unfit mother.

in the know    

DCFS does not make phone calls, they randomly show up at your house. It is not an excuse, but I think Britney was very lonely in that big house with the kids and appeared to have no friends her age before Paris came along. If she hooked up with another celebrity who had kids, her life would be very different right now. She appears to be drifting like a ship without a port. She needs someone with some sense, and apparently is isn't her manager who should be fired, to reach out to her and help her make some better decisions. Her ego was probably destroyed when her husband never came home and blatantly cheated on her and really did not care if she knew about it. She's hurt and insecure and is acting out as a cry for attention. Everybody wants a piece of her money and fame but now that she is spirling out of control know one seems to care enough to help her. Her mother and sister's advice is not going to work in this situation. Britney needs guidance from someone she respects in the music industry. Please someone step in!!!!

Britney should have NEVER had kids. She doesn't want them, she only takes them out when she wants to play with them, but when she gets tired of them she puts them back in their box.

Britney = Mommy Dearest. Her children will grow up to hate her.

Brit -- I was the same age as you when my two sons were born. I feel so old saying this, but time goes by so quick when they are small and innocent. My boys are both teenagers now, and I'd do anything to get even a couple hours back with them when they were young. There are some idiots on these boards, but some of the comments should be taken to heart. Sure, you can make your own decisions, but spend as much time with the kids as you can. No matter how much they are being paid, no one will ever love those boys like their mother.

Please she went out 9 NIGHTS and she was doing nothing wrong or illegal so they have no case to begin with...And lets not forget Kevins 2 years full or partying and not ever being home when Britney was with the kid(s). SOme of you just hate her and are nothing more than a bunch on morons and ignorant bigots. GeT THE F*** OVER IT ALREADY and quit pretending you know whats best for anyone go worry about your own f***ed up lives cause I am 100% sure none of you NONE OF you have ANY room to talk and degrade ANYONE! TMZ shame on your for fabricating a story just to fill up space on your sh*tty site (X17online ALL THE WAY).................................

Why do the photogs follow this hound Paris? Is it because she's rich? Because she is not pretty, not sexy, not smart and looks like the hunchback of Notre Dame with her lazy eye! If rich is the only qualification, then Id rather you follow Bill Gates around!

tmz is fat    

thank you #6..... Has everyone forgotten that Britney does not have to work an 8-5 job..... soooo allll day long she has nothing to do but be with her kids.... at night when they are sleeping is when she goes out.... do you want her to be at home watching them sleep? all these people sound like a bunch of angry mothers that probably dont look as good as britney after having two kids and who have to wake up extra early to drop their kids off at some random day care... go to work all day (with out being with their kids.... shame on you!) and then having to go right after work to go pick them up.... and when you do get home do you really spend every moment with them? i dont think so... and thats cause im not even a britney fan... lay off her already

Are they allowed to screen her for drugs if they show up at the house? Someone should tell them if they wanna come over to do it bright and early - get there at 7am while she's still drunk and high and about to pass out for the majority of the day. That'll give them some real insight into her parenting.

Can they use pictures as evidence? Cause there's quite a few of her driving while she appears to be on something, then you couple that with her driving with Sean on her lap. Throw in a few of her and Paris stumbling to their cars at 5am and Brit's got a problem on her hands.

She's not going to lose to her kids but I would love it if she had to be monitored for awhile and have a judge scold her. Something to wake the girl up and knock some reality into her head that she isn't the know it all she believes herself to be. She's still defending that car ride with Sean cause she country "that's what we do" She couldn't even accept blame because she thinks her ways are always best and she is invincible . A judge and a child welfare expert need to set her straight and scare the crap out of her.

Why should she stay home late at night when the kids are sleeping if she can just afford a babysitter? God, I can only imagine the hell you people put your kids through with your smothering and over-zealous parenting.

#6, 24 and 25 - I agree with you. There are more than enough REAL cases for social services to look in to.
