Would Britney Hit Her Kids?

A recent order from the Los Angeles Superior Court leaves many wondering if Britney Spears’ increasingly erratic behavior includes violence towards her children. After close examination of court documents regarding current custody arrangements between Britney and Kevin Federline, OK! magazine found this surprising mention: “Each party is restrained from using corporal punishment with the minor children and from allowing anyone else to do so.”

While there are no public accusations of Britney beating her kids, OK! reports that K-Fed told his family about Britney’s allegedly-abusive ways. “Sometimes she’d hit him with her fists,” a member of Kevin’s family told the magazine. “She threw things at him. There’s no doubt Britney has a temper.”

One of Brit’s friends came to the pop star’s defense. “If she was cooking and Preston would reach for the burner, Brit would tap his hand and tell him, ‘Don’t touch that! It’s hot!,’” the friend explained. “That is a very different thing than smacking your children with a belt or ruler.” The friend also revealed to OK! that the troubled singer is trying to make things right by hiring nannies. “She’s got a lot on her plate,” the friend added. “But to accuse her of hitting her kids is far-fetched. She would do anything for those babies and would give her own life in a heartbeat to make sure they have a good life.”
