Who's Behind the Britney Investigation? -- Plot Thickens

8/27/2007 7:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

And get this: DCFS is all too familiar with the family. We've learned that another anonymous complaint was filed with DCFS on July 2, but it went nowhere.

Sources say DCFS has put both Britney and K-Fed under the microscope in the past. In February, 2006, DCFS famously investigated Britney after the notorious car seat incident with Sean Preston. Ditto April, 2006 (while Brit and K-Fed were still together), after Sean Preston fell out of a high chair -- another DCFS investigation came and went.

Hey wasn't it only a few weeks ago when it came out that she was trying to make the little ones put whitening strips on their teeth and then cursed at them when they wouldn't keep them on.
Not that I blame the little guys they taste nasty but I can not see how that can be healthy for the toddlers you know that they would have been swallowing the bleach in it, so this may be a big part of it.
Poor Babies!

If I live to be 110 years old I will still be lost to this shocking coverage and obsession with
some little girl from rags to riches story that took on a whole new survivor story for me ,
that little girl is strong,,most of us would have packed it in with type of personal invasion
Not even for one minute this thing is a casual ,attack,those that are rising up a against her are money grubbing losers,she doesnt need twelve steps she needs one step and that is to just keep going dont be side tracted march,little girl proudly to the real rewards and you shall sit above your mockers and accusers,,I am praying for you,Brit,do not be discouraged or faint of heart,,you are being used as a tool for those that can not teach
or achieve what you have been able to withstand,,hang in there sister

I work for DFCS in Georgia, DUH Tmz, DFCS can not release who they are investigating, it is a matter of privicacy, employees can get fired if that infomation is released.

Puh-lease    

K-Fed wants the kids so he can get some astronomical amount of child support. He's filing abuse complaints just for harassment, and should be censured by the court for doing so.

Wait, Britney Spears is unfit to take care of a child? Who knew?!?!?

Seriously, she could find a way to kill a Pet Rock.

Ted both of those fall under serious grounds of neglect. And it is giving the CPS workers cases to go by; they need to start somewhere and it does take more then 1 complaint to build a case.
But for children of that age it is serious red flags that these babies are neglected.

ok, my 2 daughters father beat them black and blue, left bruises on their legs, and thighs and buttocks and the state (LOUISIANA) still didn't see fit to curtail his visitation...so I had to take him back to court to to alter the current custody and visitation order and have the judge ORDER a no corporal punishment until we finish this revisiting the current custody situation...that was 2 years ago and we still have not resolved the situation.
so i do not believe that britney should have her kids taken away for the things being said about her...that being said, I do believe that BOTH parents should be ORDERED to attend parenting classes, both parents should be ordered to attend therapy, and that britney should be ORDERED to take any and all prescribed medications for mental health and be tested weekly to check her blood levels to assure that she is adhereing to those medications...and both parents should be ORDERED to maintain a curfew when the boys are under their care, and both should have visits from dcfs to supervise until they determine each parent's fitness. both parents should be ORDERED to undergo psychological testing. when all that is completed, then there should be a mediator sit down with both sides and come to a resolution that both sides can live with INCLUDING rules and guidelines that both sides can and will agree to live by.

SOUNDS LIKE TO ME THERE NEEDS TO BE AN ALL AROUND INVESTIGATION ON BOTH PARENTS. K-FED DOESN'T SOUND LIKE HE'S GOT ALL HIS NOODLES IN ONE POT EITHER IF HE CAN'T HANDLE HIS OWN CAREER AND MUST DEPEND ON THE EX-SPOUSE FOR SUPPORT. OF COURSE, THIS IS NOT MY GENERATION OF PEOPLE... THANK GOD, I AM OLDER AND WISER!

AT ANY RATE, BRITNEY, DEAR, IT''S TIME TO PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER AND BECOME A RESPONSIBLE ADULT, WHETHER OR NOT YOU EVER HAVE ANY OTHER KIND OF LIFE! YOU HAVE TWO CHILDREN WHO NEED YOU AND THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES YOU SHOULD BE CONSIDERING WHEN IT COMES TO ANYONE ELSE'S WELL BEING. IN ORDER TO DO THAT, YOU NEED TO CONSIDER YOURSELF AS WELL AND BECOME THE WORTHY, VALUABLE INDIVIDUAL THAT YOU ARE.
