Amid concerns from her family about her recent behavior, Britney Spears wanted to move on and enjoy some time away... by, of course, taking the kids to Vegas.
The pop star, joined by her brother Bryan Spears, flew in a private plane to Sin City on Wednesday afternoon with kids Sean Preston, 22 months, and Jayden James, 10 months.
It didn't take her long to make her presence felt. As a result, Britney Spears and her bodyguard might not be welcome at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel anymore.
Eyewitnesses tell Us Weekly that Spears' bodyguard, Julio Camera, a.k.a. JC, roughed up a photographer outside the Wynn spa after an altercation over the photographer's proximity to - and possible contact with - Sean Preston or Jayden James Federline.
A photographer who was shooting Spears at the resort claims that JC Camera shoved his partner in the chest - and accidentally hit Sean Preston in the process.
The photographer alleges that Britney Spears started yelling while JC Camera tackled his partner to the ground and began punching.
He claims that after Wynn security asked Britney Spears and all parties involved to leave, the Las Vegas police were called to take statements.
Las Vegas Police say JC Camera was issued a citation for misdemeanor battery. Meanwhile, Loretto says that Spears has filed an allegation of battery on behalf of Sean Preston Federline against photographer Kyle Henderson.
Britney Spears' battery allegation remains under investigation, with Las Vegas police issuing the following statement about the JC Camera incident:
"A second Incident Crime Report was also filed by Britney Spears on behalf of her minor child. In that report it was alleged that prior to the above incident a second photographer, identified as Kyle Henderson, battered both Julio Camera and Britney Spears' child, who was at that time being held by the security officer."
As of 5:30 p.m. Pacific time, the big sister of Jamie Lynn Spears had checked out of the Wynn hotel, although it is not certain that her departure was voluntary.
A Wynn spokesperson declined comment on the incident, and the hotel would only say in a statement that "the Wynn does not comment on guests of the hotel."
SIDE NOTE: Where the heck is Daimon Shippen? This guy is EVERYWHERE with her for two weeks and then falls off the face of the Earth? Where did JC Camera come from?
Britney might not be able to skip out on her problems altogether, though. A trip of this nature poses problems for any custody battle with her ex-husband K-Fed.
Under California law, neither parent is allowed to take a child out of state without written permission from the other, or by obtaining a court order.
According to a source close to Kevin Federline, Spears failed to notify her ex or his attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, that she was taking the children to Las Vegas.
We hear that the FedEx - by far the most sane of the two parents - has already filed a complaint. We will have more on this bizarre story as it develops.
