... and, just like that, Britney Spears' new hair color doesn't seem like a very big deal any longer.
Not after multiple outlets have confirmed Kevin Federline recently accused his former father-in-law of child abuse.
The former professional dancer -- who was married to Spears for two years and who shares kids Sean Federline, 13, and Jayden James Federline, 12 -- with the global superstar, has filed an official police report against Jaime Spears.
In documents obtained by The Blast, it has been reported that Kevin filed said report on August 25, the day after an alleged physical altercation between Jamie and his and Britney's oldest son, Sean.
This incident supposedly went down at Jamie's home in Ventura County while he was watching his grandkids.
According to TMZ insiders, an altercation between Jamie and Sean turned physical at one point... with Mr. Spears putting his hands on his grandson in violent fashion.
It was not by accident, either, these same insiders explain.
TMZ writes that Jamie broke down a door to get to his grandson and grabbed him once he was in the room.
It's unclear at this time exactly what precipated to confrontation -- not that it matters, of course.
The action described above is wildly inappropriate and likely illegal, if the report is true.
Sources close to the investigation tell TMZ that there were no visible bruises or injuries to the 13-year old.
Nevertheless, this incident was severe enough to Federline that he reported it the next to day to the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.
While we await further details, we can at least report investigators have already interviewed witnesses and turned over their findings to the District Attorney's Office.
The district attorney is the person who will now determine if there's enough evidence against Jamie Spears to file charges.
Spears and Federline stunned the world when they exchanged vows in 2004; they took fans by less surprise in 2006 when they filed for divorce.
This police report filing comes just days after Federline and Spears formalized a custody agreement in which Kevin will have custody of their two sons 70 percent of the time.
This has been the general arrangement for about a year, but it is now legal.
Prior to this set-up, Kevin and Britney -- who have been on very solid terms for many years -- shared custody of their kids equally.
UPDATE: As you could have guessed, this alleged altercation between Jamie and Sean took place during Britney's allotted time with the children.
We cannot say for certain where she was at the time, but she allegedly took Sean and Jayden away from their grandfather at one point and brought them back to her home.
Federline was called later to pick them up and the boys stayed the evening of August 24 with their father.
If Jamie is charged, the crime will more than likely be considered a misdemeanor.
Jamie has served as the conservator of his daughter's estate for nearly a decade.
He has often had a turbulent relationship with Federline, especially of late.
Earlier this year, Jamie and Kevin went at it in court over an increase in child support for the former DJ as he took over the majority of custody while Britney dealt with mental health issues.
Britney has not yet commented on the abuse allegations against her father.
UPDATE: Federline has been granted a restraining order against Jamie Spears.
