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.

What could Britney be thinking by staying in a Palm's penthouse suite with Paris? Does she think we'll forget her children if she's not photographed with them?

Wonder how low-cut her dress will be for her "surprise" appearance at the AMA's?

Advice to Team Spears: a Norman Rockwell type photo of Britney serving Thanksgiving dinner to her boys and family. Her next project should be lullaby CD.

Hey Britney did you ever come to the conclusion that maybe just maybe he married you to later on divorce you and get as much out of you as he could and go back to Shar Jackson. Shar Jackson still loves him you know this don't you Britney. Britney you should have stayed with that cuter guy that you were only married to for a couple of hours, now he's hot, and has a way better body then Kevin. Anyway Britney, if you have an airtight prenup, let him do his worse because he'll look the bad man because he's desparate. I know your in the public eye and all but who cares you have more people on your side then your husband and a lot of stars have been embarrassed in the media and came back stronger. You know the saying, "What ever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger" . Let him do his worse, make your next album, shot, make two and really piss him off. You'll have a great life anyway without him.

This situation will only get worse, because you're dealing with a desperate, greedy and self-centered person who only really wanted the money. The sex was just a added bonus. The kids tied him in so he knew he would get some money.

Britney should have left the idiot a long time ago, she is too pretty for him. She & Justin timberlake made a great couple. I hope Britney learns her lesson, stick to pretty boys like Justin because they treat you alot better, guys like K-FED are just losers.

Chalk this whole sham of a marriage up to youthful stupidity on Britney's part. I agree with previous posts that what goes around comes around. What to do now? You have two beautiful children to raise, Britney, you're getting rid of their disinterested daddy, now get busy being a mom. Partying with Paris Hilton is not a good start. Those children need parental influence and guidance. Jackie Kennedy once said "If you botch the raising of your kids, nothing else you do in life matters much."

duh    

What goes around does come around. That is the same thing Justin Timberlake was saying in his song, "What Goes Around Comes Around". She screwed him over and now Kevin has screwing her, Kevin screwed Shar over and now Britney is screwing him over. Be careful for what you ask for. Good day!!!

I dont understand this girl, she has two kids with a man (one after another by the way) and then dumps him, for being the loser she already knew he was, and then goes out and parties like a hizzo with no one better then Parasite!

I think the real loser here is Britney herself!

K-Fed is human garbage at its worst.

As for Pam, you're one of my heroes! Rather than just sitting back and enjoying the good life she fights for a cause she feels passionately about. Anyone who has EVER seen videos of animals being skinned alive for their fur knows what I am talking about. While Beyonce, Paris, J. Lo and others thoughtlessly flaunt their cruelty Pam speaks up. Good for you Pam, beautiful AND caring. Now THAT'S sexy.

WAY TO GO TMZ for the vague item on Britney Spears. How about some specifics next time instead of just stating the obvious?
