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.

Ugggh what a nasty gnarly strategy. This guy is a serial wedder and bedder. He is completely undeserving of all the fame she gave him. Everyone knows he's a total joke. Just see all the jokes rolling in at a humor and porody site I like in http://www.humor-and-jokes.com/Celebrity-Jokes/Federline-Jokes/ . Now she isn't by any means blameless, after all she had bad judgment to fall in love with him in the first place.

I hope money will make Kevin happy, because if that is what he ends up with in the end, it will be the only thing he has.
Gone will be any self respecting woman that might be interested in him, all his money will go to hookers & strippers, and if we're all lucky he'll catch a disease or two.
Britney may not be the world's best mom, but show a mom that hasn't made mistakes. The fact of the matter is Kevin is a piece of sh*t and is proud of it.
He'll die a lonely old man, with kids that wish that he wasn't their dad.

o.k. darling....here is your big chance to do right by your kids.
1) stop hanging and partying with the big immature kids.
2) be the mama you always wish you had
3) never dis the boys father, they'll figure that out on their own and respect you for it when they are older.
4) don't forget that they have half sisters, let them be family...those children didn't ask to be put in this situation, they only ask to be loved.
5) godspeed

I am so glad for her to get out of what was obviously such a bad situation. I know from experience it is difficult to make that decision especially when you have two small children. Britney is a strong person and she is getting back to being herself. It is a long and difficult road ahead but it is all for the better. CONGRATULATIONS Britney!!!!!

First of all I would like to say for you Britney that you got rid of that piece of trash, he was just a gold digger and new that had he got you pregnant that he would have cash for life. Second of all don't listen to those people that throw insults that you are out having a good time with friends, the only advice that I would have for you is that Paris Hilton might not be the best person for you to be around as you are a mother now and she has a bad reputation and is not a good choice to hang out with. All parents have a right to go out with friends and have a good time just as long as you make good decisions as you now are a mother and need to set examples for your children to follow when they grow up. You are a very beautiful and smart person not to mention extremely talented and no one will ever be able to take that away from you unless you let them. Remember talk is cheap and you now that as a mother those boys only have you to depend on and set examples for.In my opinion Britney don't give in to Kevin's demands of him dragging this out in court cause he will never follow through with having to be responsible for two children, look he never really spends time with children that he had with that Jackson woman, fight him all the way cause the kids are small yet and it will most likely be over by the time they are old enough to understand.
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR CHILDREN AND CAN'T WAIT FOR YOUR COME BACK

She's trash and he's a worthless bum. They should have been a poster couple for planned parenthood. If it weren't for her money the kids have nothing to look forward to.

I cant believe that everyone is so hung up on shitting on Brittney. HELLO! She young beautiful and screwed up when she fell head over heels for K-shitbag!
You cant tell me that all the woman out there on here shtting on Brittney have never done stupid "in love" mistakes. Brittney I hope going forward you learn that 75% of men are money grubbing cheating dinks. Dont EVER date a man that you were able to take from another woman. And girl, dont let the haters get you down. Just because you are a mom doesnt mean that you shouldnt not give your self a lil fun time. If you didnt you would be a crazy coupon cutter sitting on line looking for another mother to shit on as many on here have. I am not saying let a nanny raise your kids, enjoy them and your life. Its one life to live DO IT UP! Good luck to you and your handsome lil boys and. I will keep praying that K-CRAP gets what comes around.

First of all, Britney should've known what kind of man this K-fed is. They both looked like trailer trash since day 1!! She should've known it was the kind of lifestyle she was going to be having if she was going to be with him. Too bad Brit! These are the consequences!!! Too bad, so young and yet already divorced, 2 kids and trying to get child support - WHAT A DIVA!!!!

OK... partying with Paris, not such a hot idea.

But for anyone who has gone through a divorce, you are aloud one or two big parties before your life settles down and you get down to the business of being a single Mom and getting your life back on track.

Still Paris?

Anyway, yes Kevin prob did marry her for her money. I HOPE the pre-nup is air tight. She has worked too hard for her money and he deserves NOTHING!

She would have been better off with a sperm donor, but hey everyone makes mistakes. Most of us don't have the world knowing about all of them.

The boys will be just fine with a strong Mom and a once in a while Dad. I told my X husband once that by the time he decided to be a Dad (he left when she was 5 months old) I'd have a new one for her. And I did and she LOVES her DAD (#2)

Life is what you make of it. Be a good parent. Good luck to all who ever end up in this situation.
