Britney Spears' dad cleared

Britney Spears' father Jamie won't face any charges after he was investigated following allegations of a violent incident with his 13-year-old grandson last month.

The singer's ex-husband Kevin Federline is said to have alerted police to an incident that took place while his two sons, Sean and 12-year-old Jayden, were staying with their mom on Aug. 25. Following the claims, a temporary protective order was put in place which prevented Jamie from having any contact with his grandsons.

However, the Ventura County District Attorney announced on Tuesday that Jamie won't be prosecuted following claims he broke down a door and violently shook one of the children.

"The Ventura County Sheriff's Office investigated allegations involving child abuse by Mr. Spears. After reviewing the evidence, there is insufficient proof that criminal offense was committed by Mr. Spears," they said in a statement.

Shortly after news emerged of the alleged incident, Jamie requested to step down as Britney's conservator for "medical reasons" as he undergoes ankle surgery.

A judge ruled that Britney's longtime "care-manager" Jodi Montgomery can temporarily take her father Jamie's place while he recovers from the operation.

However, according to reports Jamie is still ensconced as the conservator of Britney's estate, meaning he has total control over her investments, business deals, income and expenditure.

Jamie has helped manage Britney's life and finances since 2008, when she was placed under a conservatorship, which is currently under review.
