Britney Spears arrives for a post Grammy Party at ...

MALIBU, Calif. - Child welfare officials and a sheriff's deputy visited the home of Britney Spears but declined to say Tuesday whether they were investigating the pop princess.

Spears and her husband, Kevin Federline, are the parents of an infant son, Sean Preston.

The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services and the Lost Hills sheriff's station declined to give details of Saturday afternoon's visit.

"It's a very standard, routine patrol request," Lt. Debra Glaskides said Tuesday. "We just roll out with them. We stood by, we took no action, no report or anything."

The Sheriff's Department said it was a DCFS matter and couldn't release any information. Glaskides said there may not even be a DCFS investigation, noting it may have been only a welfare check.

Phone and e-mail messages left for Spears' New York publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, weren't immediately returned.

In February, DCFS visited Spears' home after publication of photographs showing the 24-year-old singer driving with then 4-month-old Sean Preston in her lap, rather than in a car seat as required by law.

Spears later apologized, saying she did it because of a "horrifying, frightful encounter with the paparazzi."

DCFS director Louise Grasmehr didn't return a phone message left Tuesday at her Los Angeles office. The department routinely refuses to discuss cases, citing confidentiality laws.

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline are continuing in their bid to become parents of the year! Us Weekly (http://www.usmagazine.com/blog/2006/04/11/child-services-sent-to-britney-spears-house/) has this to report:

According to The Insider, at around 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 8, a Sheriff's Deputy from the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Department accompanied investigators from the Department Of Children and Family Services to the Malibu home of Britney Spears.

A source tells Us that the Sheriff's visit was part of the ongoing investigation into allegations that Spears drove a car while her baby, Sean Preston, sat on her lap. "It was part of the child endangerment investigation,"” says the source, who adds that Britney was told ahead of time by her lawyers that the DFCS would be paying a visit. "“She knew they were coming. It was all standard." Source says that Britney'’s lawyers expect Britney not to be prosecuted. "“It's all political. They have to do [the investigation]."

Something sounds fishy! Poor SPF! He didn't deserve to be born into that kind of life! He's totally going to be smoking crack by age 4.

UPDATE - Star (http://www.starmagazine.com/news/61975) is reporting something totally different! They are saying SPF fell and fractured his skull and the DFCS were called in to investigate the matter in relation to his fall.

On April 7, when Britney Spears and Kevin Federline realized that their baby, Sean Preston, had been sleeping more than usual, panic bells went off. Just six days earlier, the 7-month-old had taken a major fall from his high chair, a tumble that had his parents worried that he might have been critically injured.

They had every right to fret. After rushing Sean to a nearby hospital, they discovered he had a minor skull fracture (sometimes called a "scalp fracture" in babies), and a blood clot. And the doctors weren't the only ones to take notice! The next day, the Department of Children and Family Services began looking into the incident.
