Spears` child abuse claims `absurd`
London: Pop diva Britney Spears` camp has hit back at allegations by her former part-time security worker Fernando Flores that she abused her two young sons.
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."
