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.

It's always everyone else's fault but Britneys. It's so sad to see so many young people here supporting this trainwreck. So so sad for our society.

I am honestly very disapointed in Britney Spears! She is suppose to be an advocate for young woman, an Icon, not a trash talking, pantyless,rehab alumni!! It looks like she doesn't want to return on top. By the way she has been carrying herself post-rehab it looks like she likes the "trailer-trash" lifestyle. I didn't really care much for "K-Fed" when he first came into the picture, but I honestly have more respect for him than Britney now. He has been getting work, staying out of the spotlight, and acting like a great caretaker for not only his two son's with Spears, but his other two children as well. He's actually turning out to be the more responsible person! Go figure! I say give him full custody! He obviously is the one who really wants it!

my idea    

I wish CPS would spend 1/2 the time, that they waste on
checking on Britney's kids, looking into all the families that schools report to
them! There a lot more children in our country that are in REAL
need of help from abusive or neglective parents that are hooked on
meth or crack; that live in run-down houses, trailers, and apartments
with the electricity and/or water rarely turned on; and that beat or
starve their kids. People (including the media) need to quit
focusing on her and her boys, and start looking around your own
neighborhoods for kids that need our help.

This is just K-fed trying to renew his meal ticket. If he had been so worried about his kids do you think he would not have said anything when they were investigated while they were married. This is a common strategy in a custody battle. Brit needs to batten down the hatches and keep her mouth shut and her clothes on. O yes and no drugs ding-bat.

Fed-loser MIGHT have lodged the complaint himself?!? !Who else?

This loser can't even get a job and is desperately attempting to maintain his
Spears lifestyle.

Spears might make stress related stupid mistakes (what mom doesn't and we don't have the media in our face with every move) but k-crap is the one that needs to be watched with those kids.

This Federline is a real poop-ball. What a mistake he was . Poor girl, paid all of that money to get rid of him. He took her money and got a lawyer to try to get the kids so that he could get more money in child support. I can see it all now. Kevin and Shar and all of their kids being taken care of by Brittney for the rest of their lives. My mother used to say, "the screwing you get ain't worth the screwing you get". My mother....I never forgot this. Brittney better squirt some water on her pants before she burns all of her money away. This next album of hers better be the best one ever. I hope so for her sake. Poor, dumb girl.

#65 you are so correct. There are many kids who are truly starved, not cared for sexually abused and every other way. It is a sad world we live in when we just focus on Brits kids and what they are doing or not doing. I am sure her kids are living much better than many poor gretto trailor trash kids with bad people living close by. Why was that horrible man living so close by that murdered the little girl. Forcus on the sex offenders.

Im sick n tired of hearing about Britney! The woman needs to read a parenting book or attend a damn class to raise those kids. She is not a bad person, just needs to change her ways. I really hope she matures because right now, she is no role model and that is what the kids need. As for Kevin....he's just trying to find more ways to get paid lol, but what he should do, go to college n get a good job with the money he got from britney.

Kevin reminds me of my ex-husband, doesn't want to be around or care for the kids, unless there is something in it for him. Britney you hang in there, You are a great entertainer, And I hope you come back stronger than ever.. Kevin you need to go on to the next entertainer and try to screw up her life. they always say 3 strikes your out.. so go on and get your next babies momma. maybe someone will stop you in your tracks.
