Britney SpearsTroubled pop star Britney Spears is facing a probe into allegations that she abused her two young sons. Social workers are set to quiz her over claims she beat one with a belt and gave both food they were allergic to and which made them violently ill, The Sun reports.

The singer's former bodyguard Fernando Flores, who claimed he was forced to quit his job due to Britney's erratic behavior, approached investigators with the accusations.

It is understood that the 28-year-old star strongly denied the claims and insisted she has never mistreated Sean Preston, 4, and Jayden James, 3.

But Flores, 29, told the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services he felt Britney was too unstable to be left in charge of her sons.

He feared her behaviour could scar the youngsters for life. The children split their time between Toxic singer Britney's Beverly Hills mansion and dad Kevin Federline’s home.
