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.

I think the media and everyone involved in britneys business should back off. My hear goes out to her because she is under so much scrutiny but whos to say anything. Shes fallen apart and needs major help. How would you feel if you felt that you had nobody on your side?

Blame the nanny. It seems Britney is slumming around in hotels rooms most of the time with more creepy men. She always looks so stonned lately so its not her fualt. I'm sure the nanny is not doing his/her job.

There is nothing like a mothers love, if she is going through something she might not be on top of everything but she loves her kids like no one else would, accidents happen in everyone's home. Trying helping her instead of trying to tear her to pieces, a good thing to do is offer some suggestions or possibly help her.She needs help not your negativity.

If Britey has shared custody of her mea she doesn't have them all of the time. Therefore, if something like their teeth rotting comes up it can't be totally her fault. It kind of means that Kevin (father of the year) wasn't doing his part, He's no making sure that the boy are properly taken care of. He's not talking to their mother which means that he's not making sure that things are being done properly .If there is no communicationbetwen the two parents how can the parents do their jobs properly. Letting someone who he considers unfit continue to keep his boys un supervised says alot about him. I hope this crap comes out in court. If they can get a child abuse charge against britney Kevin has a better chance of winning.....

The Goldwigger wants more money!
Here is what Britney should do
she should offer to give Kfed full custody and sign away her rights in exchange she will pay no more alimony and no more child support! If Britney did this he would change his tune big time.. I know she loves her children but if it is the only way to prove he is in it for the money then that is what I would do. IF his concern is only for his childrens well being and Britney is such a bad mother then he would take this deal and run! If doesnt take it then you know he is in it for the money..
Oh and dont say she cant do that because my best friend just gave up her alimony and her child support in exchange for sole custody of her son. A son that they were battling over because the father only wanted th child so he didnt have to pay support. When my friend agreed to take the child with no support he suddenly dropped his claims to the child.

to those defending her... if she's such a good mother, why is she still allowing herself to be photographed partying and hanging out at all hours of the night? since she knows this case is happening she hasnt put in any effort to make herself seem like a good mother. except for one ridiculous attempt where she took her kids out to a resturaunt, and kept them out late. why cant this bitch take her kids to a playground or a kiddie gym? cuz she's retarded thats why. she does not deserve those children.

OK K Fed's alimony checks must be coming to a halt. He is really getting desparate. This man is REALLY low, using his kids as a means of financial support. He is abusing his sons by all these absolutely FALSE allegations against the only women who really cares about them, their mother.

Ok, for the first time I feel sorry for her.

Britney is great.
She sure is receiving a great deal of Hell from people.
I would be so upset if this happened to a relative or friend of mine.
All those negative comments are just sad.
The mobbing of Britney Spears is sad.

her kids may or may not have cavities........does that warrant an entire CPS investigation?????

If the reported child abuse allegations involve poor dental hygiene and sleep habits, I believe that this investigation is a waste of the taxpayers' money. In addition, these baseless allegations are tying up the time and resources of the CPS staff. CPS should not be involved with petty cases like this. If Kevin Federline is so concerned about the children's dental hygiene he can personally help with their dental care, it is not necessary to drag in CPS or a family court.

My God! If we taker her children away for these "abuses", we will set a precedent that might completely bankrupt the child welfare services around the country. Does anyone out there not think that her casual way of raising her children is not the norm in this country? If she feeds them sweets, is that really a reason for taking the children? Come on.....would you also take away the millions of hungry gheto children who live on the smell of cigarette smoke and drugs - who may get a decent meal once a year - who live in complete and morbid squallor?????

I have no particular use for Ms. Spears, but I also don't want her children. As long as she has some money, she will probably be the best chance they have, as sorry as that is to some of you.

Time to get off the "kill the celebrity" band wagon.

You cannot be this guillible. OF COURSE it was K FED. If you want to get custody of your kids who by the way are OBVIOUSLY not being well taken care of.... you would have to go through the proper channels. WHAT EASIER WAY to make your case than to have the STATE deem her unfit. HELLLOOOOOOO??? What he is the bad guy now for doing what everyone has been screaming about? The woman feeds them soda, obviously takes them in unhealthy work environments... he is simply doing what every other screwed up insane family does to get custody of the kids. Stop acting all shocked. Welcome to America. Home of the shortcut.

Vanja... once again...welcome to America... where Child Protective Services are not what they formerly were. Once reserved for abuse cases, now ANY allegation leads to an investigation and... if you do not give your children lets say immunizations.... they can come in, if you dont get them to a dentist, they can come in... they are not under the jurisdiction of anyone other than themselves.... aint it grand? So in the meantime.... while they make the case for K Fed ... some kid that seriously DOES need their help wont get it because they are too busy chasing shadows created by savvy lawyers, and nosy neighbors across america.
