Britney's child abuse claims 'absurd'
Troubled singer Britney Spears' camp has hit back at allegations by her former security worker Fernando Flores that she abused her two young sons.Updated: Jul 02, 2010 16:31 IST
Spears has two sons - Sean Preston, 4, and Jayden James, 3. Flores contacted the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and alleged that Spears whipped one of her sons with a belt and forced another to eat food he was allergic to earlier this year.
"The allegations made by Fernando Flores are absurd," dailymail.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
Children Services are believed to have investigated as they are required to do under Californian law and determined the claim had no merit.
"Social workers visited Britney's house recently about the alleged abuse allegations. Anytime anyone makes a report to child protective services, a welfare check is required to be made under law to further investigate," a family source said.
"It doesn't matter who has made the claim, or how outlandish it may seem. During the visit by officials, there was absolutely no signs of abuse. The boys are happy, well-adjusted toddlers that love their mama, and Britney is fiercely protective of them."
