When Britney Spears took her two-year-old son Sean Preston shopping on Sept. 21, the frenzy of the paparazzi caused the infant to cry. And this wasn’t the first time the beleaguered pop star has been accused of putting her kids in harm’s way of the media.

Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon ruled “each party is restrained from using corporal punishment with the minor children and from allowing anyone else to use it.”

And while Brit was known to get physical with ex-husband Kevin Federline — “She threw things at him,” one insider reveals to OK! — Would she dare act like that to her own children?
