Britney Spears

Files for Divorce

11/7/2006 5:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears has filed a petition for divorce from Kevin Federline.
TMZ obtained the legal papers, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences." In her petition, Spears asks for both legal and physical custody of the couple's two children, one-year old Sean Preston and two-month old Jayden James, with Federline getting reasonable visitation rights.

As for money, sources tell TMZ the couple, who married in Oct. 2004, has an iron-clad prenup. Not surprisingly, Spears is waiving her right to spousal support. She's also asking the judge to make each party pay their own attorney's fees.

Spears gives the date of separation as yesterday, the same day she flaunted her incredible revamped physique during a surprise appearance on David Letterman's show. Sources tell TMZ there was no single reason for Britney pulling the plug, rather, it was "a string of events."

Spears has hired powerhouse celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has repped a number of celebs, including Angelina Jolie, Nick Lachey and Kiefer Sutherland. We're told Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe asked Wasser to rep both of them in their split, but Wasser declined for personal reasons.

Significantly, Britney lists the date of her marriage as October 6, 2004. There was an uproar around the time of the wedding because the highly publicized "secret" ceremony was held on Sept. 18th, leading many to question the validity of the ceremony. Now the divorce documents indicate that the lavish ceremony was not the official wedding.

Who gives a damn about Brittney.

She's merely a Marketing Gimmick that some smart people put together to get paid. And they did, and I'm happy for them, they can chill now. Nutshell, she can't sing, she's a Marketing package. Turn off all the music, and ask her to do a 30 minute concert, and you'll be pissed off wanting your money back, if you were dumb enough to pay. By the way, Kevin is fine as hell. How did she get him?

Lisa Carol #1394, Leave Whitney out of this before I come and kick your ass. Whitney and Brittney's names should not even be used in the same breath.

3rd Reich #1405, you need to kindly ask them to change the medicine in your glasses prescription. Brittney Spears ain't no damn SEXY VIXEN, she's prime Trailer Trash with some possibly temporary cash. She'll ge tricked again. You're probably just playing about her being a vixen. She belongs in a Trailer Park, like the other dude said, waiting on some guy to bring her pampers, milk, cigarettes. some pot, and a 40oz beer.

WHY are you guys constantly using Whitney Houston's name in the same breath as Brittney Spears? Give it Up. Whitney is a real singer with soul and a voice that can perform with delight even if you turn off all the music and get rid of all the dancers.

Brittney is merely and only a MARKETING PACKAGE created by some people to make some money, and they did Good for them. But I'm sorry, she CAN NOT sing, and will NEVER be able to sing. She's a Marketing Project only. Think, and accept reality. Don't fool yourselves by trying to tie her in with Whitney, Aretha, Gladys Knight or any other real singer. OK? I Don't mean to hurt anybodys feelings, but I''m Sorry, sometimes the truth just hurts. Let it go.
