Britney Spears' son 'granted restraining order against her father'

Britney Spears' father, Jamie, is allegedly being investigated after he was accused of physically abusing her eldest son during an argument last month, TMZ reports.

As a result of the incident, Britney's ex-husband and father to her two sons, Sean Preston, 13 and Jayden James, 12 -Kevin Federline - is believed to have sought out a restraining order against the boy’s grandfather, which has since been granted.

In fact, a police report filed by Kevin at the Ventura County Sheriff’s station was obtained by Us Weekly. It gave an account of an incident involving Jamie Spears and 13-year-old Sean.

Earlier this year, many fans believed that Britney had been admitted to a mental health facility against her will. She responded with a brief video message, informing her fans that "all is well":

Sean and Jayden James were visiting their grandfather at his California home when Sean and Jamie allegedly got into an argument. He "felt unsafe" and so locked himself in a room but Jamie managed to break in and "shook" him, a law enforcement source told Us Weekly.

According to TMZ, Kevin also accused Jamie of "breaking down a door and grabbing" the teenager in an intimidating manner. Sources told the site there were "no visible bruises or injuries" on Sean.

The former backing dancer's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan told People: "Britney did the right thing and removed the children and took them out of there."

He added that Kevin still wants his children to have "continuing and meaningful contact with their mother."

News of a restraining order comes a day after TMZ reported that changes to their child custody arrangement would see Britney's access to her sons reduced.

According to the publication, the singer's ex-husband has been granted 70 per cent custody of their children while she will have only have 30 per cent unsupervised custodial rights. The pair had previously shared custody of their boys 50/50.
