A celebrity mum’s two children have been taken into foster care after a judge ruled she’d been putting her party lifestyle over their needs.
The star, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was alleged to have assaulted one of the children in public, and was reported by a concerned passerby.
It’s claimed she pulled her young son’s hair in front of at least one witness.
Social services moved in after receiving the report and conducted their own enquiries that uncovered a series of other issues, including neglect, the Sun reports.
The kids were left to “fend for themselves” while she went to glitzy showbiz events and did red carpet appearances, it claims.
A family court judge ruled that the youngsters be handed into the care of another family, who live nearby the celebrity mum’s ÂŁ1million home.
A source told the Sun: “She has been struggling to cope recently.
“They are lovely kids, very well mannered. But she won’t give up her celebrity life to concentrate properly on them and things have all got a bit too much.”
The insider added: “Social services got involved after she was accused of pulling her son’s hair.
“Then further problems came to light.”
The celebrity mum – who, according to the newspaper is a famous face on TV – is said to be distraught at losing her children.
A spokesman for the local authority handling the case, which cannot be identified for legal reasons, added: “We cannot and would not comment on care proceedings.”
