In the biggest surprise of the day that's not at all surprising, we have just learned that Britney Spears is being investigated for child abuse.
According to TMZ, an unscheduled child abuse hearing was held today at Los Angeles County Superior Court. Present were Britney's lawyer, Dennis Wasser, Kevin Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, and an attorney from the L.A. County Counsel.
The specifics of the allegations against Britney Spears are not yet known. But the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is conducting an active investigation.
A hearing in the ongoing, nasty Kevin Federline-Britney Spears custody case is scheduled for September 4, which will be a follow up to today's court appearance.
Could it be that Britney is - gasp - an absentee mother who dumps her kids off on nannies (that she may or may not sleep with)? Is Spears unstable? Or just plain incompetent? Or does she spank the little tykes harder than Criss Angel gives it to her?
We'll have to wait and see, as few details are available at this time.
A rep for Britney Spears did not immediately return requests for comment. No remarks were issued by Sean Preston (pictured) or Jayden James Federline, either.
