K-Fed's Court-Approved Blackmail

11/20/2006 10:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney & KFedBritney Spears is in for a rough ride in her divorce from creepy Kevin Federline. She's about to learn an ugly lesson about celebrity divorces.

Make no mistake about it -- Federline has no interest in getting custody of the couple's two children. Sure, he's asking for custody, but it's all a thinly veiled attempt to extort money from Spears.

The word in Hollywood is that Britney loved partying before she had kids. My only encounter with Spears -- maybe two years before she got married -- was at a gym where she seemed completely oblivious to her celebrity -- chewing gum, dancing and clearly up for a good time, whenever. People I know who know her well say she was a sweet but wild girl.

Enter Federline. He partied with Britney and knows things she probably doesn't want public. And that would probably make her the same as anyone in a relationship. The difference is that Britney's secrets would get huge media play, and Kevin knows it.



So here's where he stands. Thanks to Laura Wasser, Britney's legal eagle who drafted an air-tight prenup, K-Fed will get less than $250,000 (a one-time spousal support payment), around $2.5 million (his share of the Malibu house) and that's pretty much it. So how does Fed Ex really cash in on Britney's fortune? He tells her that there are things the judge may want to know about her past that could bear on her mothering skills. But, of course, for a price, he'll go away.

Federline has been an absentee dad from the get go. He's shown no interest in parenting his kids. On the other hand, people who are around Britney all the time tell me she's an amazing mother. Trust me, we did more stories about the car seat than you can count. But she's with these kids 24/7 and does a really good job.

So the time will come soon when bad Dad will start threatening. And Britney will probably give Kevin more than he deserves to pimp his ride into the sunset. The only solace is that Federline will blow through his settlement quickly and I'm guessing he won't sell enough CDs to buy a Happy Meal. Maybe that's justice.

Everyone who says that Britney is acting like a whore and is a bad mother and is "playing" the victim can just go sit on it!! She made a BAD decision marrying K-Fed and a WORSE one having kids with him, lets not forget that he leaves HER to go party and play with strippers while he is at home-- ABSENTEE DAD is what the media has him as, and i have to agree..shes been home for two damn years taking abuse for every little mistake she has made from him && the media..heres a grand idea..1st TIME PARENTS MAKE MISTAKES!! OMG! Please note the sarcasm, the best thing she has ever done is make that jackass feel like the joke he really is [k-fed...more like "special" k]..and LEAVE HIS man capri, gold digging, wanna be raptastic ass behind..No doubt she will win custody..and NO DOUBT hes gonna try and exploit her for money..its what hes been up to for the past two years

Umm, I thought spouses weren't legally allowed to testify against their co-spouses in court.

Or maybe that was, they didn't HAVE TO.

i say britney should fight back against k-fed and not give him a single cent of HER hardearned money. its not her fault hes a crappy performer. she worked hard most of her life to get where she is now and i dont think its fair to give him anything when all he was really with her for was the money. he had to get the studio to help his stupid rapping career....britney had to use her connections to even get anyone to even try to listen to his songs...while when she was starting out, trying to make it big, where were her connections? also as for the bad mother thing....anyone ever have kids or even try to take care of any for a weekend or so? we aint talkin about a few hrs. u try living and taking care of a human being. its hard. i believe she tries her best and she truely loves her children. i dont think anyone should really give her any crap for the way she takes care of her kids. unless she beats on them, i dont see how shes supposedly an unfit mother. she may not be the best, but then again u ever seen a perfect mother? poor britney,,,im not a big fan but i think people should just leave her alone.

Britney should have seen all this coming... the guy was an "Opportunist" and she allowed herself to get sucked right in.... I believe she finally gave him the BOOT because she realized that he was damaging her image and career....

Look, no one's perfect, I'm not that big of a fan of Brit either when she nearly dropped her baby and cared more about the coffee but still, a mother is a mother and at least she's being more of a parent than K-Fed (what a dork)

None of us knows the whole story nor do we know what goes on behind doors but there is always two sides to every story and our lives aren't picture perfect either. Besides, celebrities are humans, the only difference is, they make more money than any of us put together, they're continously on tv, and they have a whole bunch of people catering to their whim.

But yeah, she made her bed and she should lie in it but at the same time, I don't want to see another mother losing her kids, yes, she does need to grow up but she also needs to get her priority striaght without Mr. Fexex in the picture. I'm just worried for those boys because this is going to be one hell of a front story legal battle and I hope they don't come out too scarred.

Britney is just acting as any recently divorced (or divorcing in this case) man or woman would. She has had a rough ride. Parents leave their kids with sitters all the time. the fact is noone publicly knows who had her children nor how they were cared for. Britneys mom couldve had the children. As long as they are with people who care about them, whats the diff. Brit deserved the Vegas Vacation, and ya know what, who better to get crazy with then Paris. Rock on Bitches... And why is that for every other person in America what happens in vegas stays in vegas, why should she be treated diff. Luv ya Brit

If Fed knew all these things about her before, and still chose to have kids with her... I don't get it... He's NOW saying that those things will make her an unfit mother? Why have two kids with her is this all of a sudden an issue? Oh yeah, it's because he wants money. As for these people who say she's an unfit mother for having a good time while going through a divorce... How good of a mother can she be if she's depressed and not taking care of herself? I'm not about to judge someone, especially someone who I've never met in person, and the only thing I know about them is this stuff I read on gossip websites. Live your life Brit. Don't listen to the haters.

Britney has made some mistakes. But she is a good mom. She cares about and loves her kids. She is still young and it is okay for her to want to go out and have fun some times.
Poor Britney she is judged for everything little thing she does just because she is famous.

I honestly think that people get too wrapped up in the personal lives of these super rich celebrities. These people flit from one spouse or lover to another. People oughta be more concerned about things going on in the real world.

I am no fan of Britney Spears or her loser ex-husband but I also have no inside info on them as real people. The only thing any of us know about their private lives is what tabloids and other media share with us. We all know she's a young mom and, most likely, should not have had kids yet but get over it. In a few months, it will have been forgotten about anyhow.

Ok, so she drinks and goes out to have fun, SHE IS YOUNG! She is not addicted to crack or cocaine, she has money to take care of her kids, and so far no word of abusing her kids. Yea she has made a couple mistakes like driving with the baby but come on, she is probably regretting that and won't do it again. We are all human and she is a good mother. There are people in the world that abuse their children and don't provide for them, Why are we not concerned about those people? People get a life and stop worrying about Britney Spears for heavan sakes. She is probably a better parent then half of you out there making these remarks. And do you honestly think that those kids would be better off with someone else? There are to many children out there that dont have parents. We should be more worried about what Michael Jackson is doing to his kids than Britney Spears.After being married to that loser Kevin, she has been there for her kids and has made everything possible for them, they are in no danger at all and they are set for life. She deserves to shake her ass after what she has been thru.
