As if the child of Britney Spears and Kevin Federline didn’t have bad celebrity-child karma already on its shoulders! Now apparently little Sean Preston Spears has mom’s driving habits to survive. Earlier this year paparazzi snapped Spears behind the wheel with infant in lap, unbelted. Her media-savvy response? She did it to save him from said paparazzi. Now the same lenses have spied Spears driving in her MINI Cooper Convertible, with Sean Preston in the back seat—in a front-facing child chair. The sleazier New York papers (no, not the Times, you imp!) splashed pictures of the scene on Page 1. And aside from Britney’s questionable fashion (hair in Edna Turnblad curlers, no less), her choice of seat positions left some question as to whether she was belting in Sean Preston properly. Federal guidelines say children under a year and 20 pounds must be in a back seat facing backwards, but Spears’ publicist cites California law that permits children under 6 and 60 pounds be in the back seat, direction unspecified. Any CHPer on the scene could have ticketed Spears for the seat—we’ll leave it to you to write your Congressperson as to why she can’t be arrested for stealing Madonna’s tongue.
