Britney Divorce Gets Really Ugly

11/21/2006 9:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney's Evolution: Click to launch galleryWe ain't seen nuthin' yet in the divorce battle between Britney and K-Fed. Sources say that K-Fed's strategy is simple – make Britney's life such a hassle it will be a bargain to pay him to permanently exit her life.

We're told he's given his lawyer the green light to turn the courthouse into a revolving door, with the endgame making it difficult for Britney to stage a comeback while the custody fight lingers. Britney can afford the expense, but it may not be worth the hassle, though she will never give up custody and she's already resigned herself to the fact that he'll be incidental in lives of their two kids.

There is, however, a glimmer of civility. TMZ has learned that Britney is flying into L.A. today for the American Music Awards, and she is working out a plan so that K-Fed can see the kids. We're told he's missing them. Baby steps.



Reese Witherspoon: Click to LaunchReese Finds Celeb Shoulders to Cry on

A downtrodden Reese Witherspoon turned to some big Hollywood shoulders, Renee Zellweger and Bruce Willis, for some solace last Friday night. A TMZ spy spotted Reese dining – or, rather, stabbing disaffectedly at a salad – at Wolfgang Puck's latest celebriteria CUT in Beverly Hills on Friday night.

Reese looked groggy and sad, says our eyes on the scene, and Renee patted her on the shoulders and consoled her, while trying to keep things as uplifting as possible. Then, Bruce ditched his dinner companions to come over and talk to the two southern belles for about 45 minutes. Even Wolfgang himself got in on the lovefest, sauntering over to gladhand the trio. Curiously, after the meal, Renee took the chance to catwalk her way through the middle of the restaurant with hips in full swing, and left, as our cameras observed, with Willis.

Pamela Anderson photo gallery: Click to launchPam to Mom-in-Law: No Fur for You!

Pamela Anderson is furious that her mother-in-law wore fur to her July 29 wedding to Kid Rock. "Pam knew it was a slap in the face," says a source to Star magazine (via MSNBC), given Anderson's extensive work with PETA and other animal-rights organizations. (Of course, no one explained why Mrs. Kid Rock's Mom was wearing fur in the middle of the summer.) But what might really be concerning the erstwhile "Baywatch" babe is that her pet Chihuahua Luca is missing. The pooch was last spotted with Anderson's parents on a private beach in Vancouver, but, says Anderson, the dog has been "on medication" and may not "be himself."

Donald Trump: click to launchParty Favors: Trump Gets His Own Song ... Sacha Makes Honest Jew of Isla ... Mary McCormack Preggers With Second Child

Donald Trump has memorialized himself in just about every way imaginable – water bottles, buildings, shirts, you name it. But now, rocker Bruce Hornsby has provided the ultimate, um, tribute – a song about the straw-haired mogul. Hornsby's tune elegizes the Donald with such lyrics as, "You know who I am, I'm Don Trump ... let's all pay homage to me" ... Sacha "Borat" Baron Cohen will tie the knot with galpal Isla Fisher (the crazy girl in "Wedding Crashers") – now that she's converted to Judaism. She has studied Hebrew and learned to cook traditional recipes, says Us Weekly (via Ben Widdicombe) ... E! Online's Mark Malkin reports that former "West Wing" star Mary McCormack is pregnant with her second child. McCormack and husband Michael Morris already have two-year-old daughter together.

#76 STACY and multiple other postings --- GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE! First, you need to learn how to CONDENSE YOUR THOUGHTS --- you're quite the long-winded airbag. Also, for someone critical of other's spelling, spellcheck should be used on your postings as well. LOL

I am happy to see that Britney has chosen to leave her soon to be ex-husband. I think that while it is important to be a mother it is also important to feel good about oneself. I believe that Britney was involved with someone who only cared about himself. For a little while (a very short while) he made her feel protected and loved, which was a facade - that unfortunately not only do the twenties, thirties, fourties and so on fall prey too.

After being pregnant for 18 months, having an idiot, jerk, thief and cheat of a husband - don't you think she is allowed to go blow off some steam? We all make mistakes, yet we make them privately. Imagine your mistakes put on display for the whole world? Yes same goes for that soon to be ex, but he as absolutely no redeeming qualities what so ever.

BRITNEY STICK TO YOUR GUNS AND DONT LET THIS PUNK DO YOU IN FOR ANYMORE OF YOUR MONEY. YOU HAVE A PRENUP AND THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH. HE WANTS TO CHALLENGE YOU,BREAK YOU DOWN SO THAT YOU WILL GIVE HIM MONEY. HE SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THAT ALONG TIME AGO WHEN HE DECIDED TO START FUCKING UP. HE WILL NEVER GET CUSTODY OF THOSE CHILDREN REGARDLESS OF WHAT HE COMES UP WITH. WHO DO YOU ALWAYS SEE THE BABIES WITH ANYWAY? YOU, THATS WHO! STAY FIRM,KEEP YOUR HEAD UP,AND FIGHT THAT BASTARD TO THE END!

Brit i am sorry but your kid need a role model a fathure figure. You are not just hurting yourself but your childs life as well. Stop thinking about yourself and start thinking about what your child needs.

I don't think Brit really wants the kids either - she's hardly ever with them. Those kids are always with her mom Lynn. So give grandma custody. Isn't that who usually raise the children of white trash anyway.

On one hand, I say fight K-Thug all the way, because he's nothing but a money grubbing whore. But on the other hand, if he's going to be such a pain in the ass, maybe she should just pay him off to get out of her and her kids life. If she pays him off, she should definately make sure that she gets full custody. However, I hope the money was worth it to him, down the line a few years when his sons begin to learn what a true piece of crap their dad is...

If Britney wants to repair her image, she should try being a good mother. Her days as an ingenue are over.

Giving Mario Lopez a lap dance and partying with Paris Hilton don't make her look "HOT." Britney makes Paris look fresh and inexperienced. The people that love Britney should get her to stop smoking.

Kevin Federline is not a bad man. Britney put him in a terrible situation. He IS the father of her children and deserves fair compensation and he deserves her respect. Britney gains nothing by trashing Kevin.

Grow up Britney. You've made your choices. Those little boys deserve at least one good parent.

It's time to act with class.... fake it until you make it.

Unfortunately Britney will have to pay for her mistake, literally. Kevin is now the scorned party and he knows his 15 minutes of fame, and black amex are over. You make a bad decision for a husband, there is always divorce, but if you make a bad decision selecting a father of your children, you are stuck for life He is not embarrassd that he has not seen any of his kids and does not even care. Steve O of Jackass said he could not believe K-fed 's wife Britney had just had a baby and was in Vegas with him and a bunch of other people getting wasted. All he had to do was use protection if he did not want kids. He is a heartless leech and I hope nobody including the networks support this loser. Britney I hope you have wised up, and learned your lesson.!!! As for k-fed, you aren't in love with Britney, you are just pissed off she beat you to file for divorce. Your over inflated ego can't handle it.

She should not at be shocked by his behavior. He dogged Shar out now it's Britney's turn. Girlfriend, he showed you his true colors when he walked out on a 7 mo pregnant girlfriend for you. That should have been a preview for things to come. If you didn't have kids I would say fight him, but let's face it, there is a chance he could get joint custody. You're not exactly mother of the year material, hanging out with the likes of Paris & Mario till all hours of the morning, and your baby is not even 2 mos. Pay him off and concentrate on your kids.

Hey Brit! Get over yourself, did you NOT cheat with Kevin behind Shari's back, knowing she was pregnant? Didn't you then proceed to marry him and then get knocked up twice by him? Did you really think that this cheating loser was going to remain faithful to you also? Now, you think you deserve pity? Sorry ain't buying into it. You reap what YOU sow. You didn't think how hurtful your actions were towards another woman, and her children, as you flaunted your relationship with KEVIN, in front of Shari's face, and in front of the whole world...did you think that maybe she was publicly humiliated...and also very hurt? Do you now have an inkling of what SHE had to go through? Karma's a bitch. Next time, try to get a man that has no attachments, it might work out better for you.

tired of it all    

As for Britney, I am a mother of six and can't remember the last time I went out for a good time much less even considered leaving my children alone so I could do so, grow up and try being a mother, you took the responsibility when you spread your legs and conceived those children. K-fed, all I can say is, its a shame your mother didn't swallow the night you were conceived.
