Britney Spears may be off the hook with child welfare services, according to a report in People magazine.
“It does not appear the county will pursue any action at this time,” the magazine quotes Spears’ lawyer, Laura Wasser, as saying at a recent custody hearing for the star.
A complaint was made with child welfare services against Spears, who has two children — Jayden James and Sean Preston. Wasser said she did not know who made the call, “but I am trying to find out,” she told the mag.
The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services had no comment on the case, according to People.
Spears is currently involved in a custody battle with the children’s father, former backup-dancer-turned-actor Kevin Federline, whom she divorced in July.
During a divorce hearing earlier this summer, Spears and Federline agreed to a 50-50 custody split. In the weeks following the divorce however, K-Fed’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, filed papers reportedly seeking the custody arrangement be changed to 70-30, in favor of his client.
Since filing the paperwork, Federline’s defense team has employed the services of an Israeli style security team, headed up by Aaron Cohen. So far, Cohen’s team has delivered subpoenas to Spears former assistant Alli Sims, her one-time bodyguard Daimon Shippen, the singer’s former manager Larry Rudolph and rehab facility Promises.
In related news, a bodyguard for Spears, Julio Camera, 37, was charged with misdemeanor battery in Las Vegas for an incident in late July.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Camera was detained by police following an alleged scuffle between him and two men trying to photograph Spears and her sons at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel casino. Camera was accused of pushing one of the men against the wall in the fracas and grabbing and punching the other.
