Britney Spears Visited by Child Protection

"The 6-month-old son of singer Britney Spears and husband Kevin Federline fell from a highchair, prompting social workers to visit the couple's Malibu home over the weekend, sources close to the situation said Tuesday. On Friday, Spears became concerned that her son, Sean Preston Federline, might have a head injury and took him to an emergency room, the sources said. That is when the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services was notified.Martin Singer, Spears' attorney, said Tuesday that there was an automatic report by the hospital to child welfare officials, as required by state law, and "DCFS immediately responded and determined there was no problem and no reason to open a formal investigation. They determined that the parents weren't involved in the injury and nothing improper occurred within the home."" By Richard Winton, Link to Article (last visited 4-12-06 NVS)
