K-Fed's Money Ploy

11/9/2006 3:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Kevin Federline was speaking to his lawyer about divorcing Britney Spears more than a month before she filed legal papers to end the marriage.

Sources say Federline was communicating with attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, talking about divorcing Spears and angling to cash in on her fortune. Federline's right to money is extremely limited because of the prenup. TMZ knows the terms of the prenup, and they are not good news for K-Fed. We're told the only thing he'll get is less than 20% of the value of the couple's Malibu estate, valued at approximately $10 million, and spousal support for one year. We're told the support he'll get is less than $250,000.

As for reports that Britney e-mailed her hubby to inform him that she was about to file divorce papers, it simply is not true. Sources tell us that the couple has not been speaking for weeks, but e-mailing each other. She did not, however, talk about divorce in those e-mails. K-Fed learned of the divorce at the time TMZ broke the story that Spears had filed.

Sources say that at least for now, Spears will not comment on K-Fed's plan to fight her for custody of their two children. We know, however, that Spears sees K-Fed's move as nothing more than an attempt to score some money. He's banking on Spears forking over dough to avoid a fight; an unlikely outcome -- given the fact that she's represented by legal pit bull Laura Wasser. Also, if K-Fed got custody, he'd be entitled to a significant amount in child support.

I think Britney got just what she deserved, he was with Shar Jackson when she began messing with him, and Shar was pregnant with Kevin's child. The reason he didnt fight for custody of those two kids is because he had them with a black woman and Shar doesnt have as much money as Britney, so it wouldnt have been worth it to sue for chidl support. As far as I'm concerned, she shouldnt have been surprised that he turned out to be a pig, he dogged Shar and he dogged her, fair is fair. I guess she thought she was better than Shar, LOL.

Everyone has to remember one thing...Britney fell in love. KFed had to have something going on to have 2 lovely ladies fall in love with him.
Yes, sometimes love wins over negative feedback from outside sources. Everyone makes mistakes. Let's let Brit and Kevin move on without further bashing. The most important issue from this is to take care of the children and for Kevin and Brit to make sure that this is done with high morals and decency.
KFed should really do some soul searching, and think about what is most important...work hard,get respect,provide for your family.

Thank God Britney has finally come to her senses (?) and has decided to dump Fed-Ex!! All he wanted was to ride on her coat tails and spend her money!! He did nothing but bring her down! Thankfully she has a pre-nup. That jerk deserves nothing from her!!! Get out and get a job like the rest of the world you loser!!!

Federline is a no talent, never had & never will have any talent BUM - Obviously Brittany has talent but as a person she's a skank ... Pay attention people, water seeks it's own level ..... Brittany married this loser & that makes her one also - So what, she can sing & dance - BFD! She also runs around showing her ass, getting drunk with confirmed slut Paris Hilton & acting like the trailer trash she actually is

Why do we in America excuse bad manners & behaviour because someone has talent? People, bad is bad & criminals are criminals whether they have money or not!

Brittany is a POS & she married a bigger one - Period - End of story

Ok, this will be a lengthy post since I have been following these two since the first rumors surfaced. First, Britney wasn't my favorite pop diva/performer but there was a song or two that was catchy and my kids love. As a person, in all of her interviews she always carried herself very well. She always had on a cute outfit, had her hair and nails done, the works! When she got with this bum, he made her into a perfect example of what red-neck trailor trash looks like. In her interview where she was pregnant with her last son, she was wearing the most horrific pair of daisy dukes and grandma shirt I had ever seen. I was disgusted that her "team" of make-up, hair, and style let her get on tv looking the way she did. I almost think that K-Fed feed her the bullsh*t "you don't have too look glam anymore babe, you already have me" crap and let herself go. It seemed like he didn't care about her or what she wanted to do. Second, the whole TV show Chaotic, that was the beginning of the end. When they decided to let the world see how they first met, that was so typical of how this relationship was not going to work. It has been proven in so many musicians' lives that when they let their "at the time" partners in their videos or a video of them surfaces, eventually they split up. It might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but let's be honest, it was a show as if they were reminiscing after a lengthy marriage. What I got out of the show was Britney getting a good lay from this total stranger whom she met at a club. Third, I always knew that she made a HUGE MISTAKE for letting Justin Timberlake go. It's not clear exactly what happened, or what was the real reason for the break-up, but sure enough the one who was hurt the most was Justin. Yeah Brit shed a tear but you couldn't see the amount of confusion and total heartbreak that Justin had for Brit. Even Justin's mother was hurt by what had occurred between her son and Brit. I think they both thought that Brit was going to be with him for a very long time. He's in a better place now with Cameron and I give Kudos to him for being so strong and pulling through that awful break-up with the pop princess. All in all, Brit is probably kicking herself in the a$$ for making the relationship as public as she did, marrying a guy who had just cheated on his gfriend of a few years (with two children of his already), and letting her "mouseketeer" Nsync'er go. I honestly believe that people don't really learn their lessons in life until they go through a very traumatic experience and grow from that. In Britney's case, K-Fed gave her a crash course on what dead beats look like and to steer very clear from any of those types of guys in the future. Good Luck Brit!!!

Can this guy sink any lower in public opinion? I mean how pathetic as a human being do you have to be to make Britney look 'good' and be the subject of sympathy!! His name will now enter American lexicon as pulling a 'Federline' , with a definition of totally f***ing up the biggest lucky break (or in this case 'mealticket') in your life....,
