Washington: Britney Spears is apparently finding it difficult to control her kids amid child abuse allegations by her former bodyguard.

The singer’s eldest son, Sean Preston, is a well-behaved child, unlike his brother Jayden James, 3, whom Spears is struggling to control.

“He’s a really wild child, gets into everything and really upsets Britney,” Fox News quoted an insider as saying, adding that Spears often just has to hand him to her nannies to take over.

But it’s not just a rowdy child giving Spears a headache these days, as she is facing some very serious allegations of abuse.

Her former bodyguard, Fernando Flores has claimed that in one incident, Spears requested he removed his belt before she proceeded to “savagely hit” the small child.

He also claims that on another occasion Spears was having sexual relations at a hotel while the children were in the room with her, and another time told her sons “Mommy is WHITE TRASH!” According to Flores, “the boys asked what that meant, however he was too ashamed to tell them.”

A rep for Spears did not respond for comment.

“Britney may have been a little out of control herself sometimes, but never would harm her babies, never in a million years would she hurt them,” the insider added.
