Britney & K-Fed Officially Kaput

7/30/2007 2:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney and K-FedBritney Spears and Kevin Federline have officially divorced.

Just minutes ago, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge signed the divorce decree. Spears' lawyer, Laura Wasser, and K-Fed's mouthpiece, making the divorce final.

Spears' lawyer, Laura Wasser, made a motion to keep the custody and spousal support orders secret. The judge granted that request, at least temporarily.

Here's what TMZ knows: K-Fed is pulling in 15K a month from Britney for child support. He's also getting 20 grand a month in spousal support, but that's based on the prenup, and it appears the alimony gravy train will come to a screeching halt in November.

As for custody, we've learned it will stay at 50/50. It's amazing disso-queen Wasser was able to get a 50/50 custody split given Brit's craziness, which included wild partying, erratic behavior and a stint in rehab. This type of custody arrangement is typically reserved for a stable couple.

But all is not over! We're told neither Brit nor Fed-Ex are happy with the custody arrangement, and either of them can go back to court and ask for a change. On top of that, Kevin won't even speak to Spears, so they will probably be back in court asking the judge to make decisions about child rearing.

One more thing: There are reports K-Fed will go to court as early as this week to get full custody. That doesn't make a lot of sense that he'd go for broke, since our sources say K-Fed has signed-off on the 50/50 custody split. He may not be happy, but it doesn't seem he's ready for all-out war either.

what's worse being Brit & K-feds kids, Michael Jackson's kids, or Rosie o'Donnell's kids?

K-Fed seems to be the better parent at this point. That's not to say he deserves Father of the Year. As for him not having custody of his other kids, their mom doesn't seem to be mentally disturbed!

i'm glad that kevin is getting Away from Britney, she's a nutcase!!! i do hope that he gets full Custody of Sean & Jayden. they don't belong with their mother, she's mentally unstable to take care of them . and i hope that she gets sent away to a mental Hospital, or something, or goes back to Louisiana , and stays there. she needs to stay far, far away from Hollywood, and, her kids. i'll be glad if the boys are safe with their father, and his family. and the " crackhead'", Britney, is far away from her kids. 'bye!!

Does K-Fed (what a name!) work? Does he actually "do" anything?

A lot has happened. Maybe brad and angelina the adoption queen should take them, I do not think either is much. has nothing to do with being a fan or not.. it is about people that are doing stupid stuff with and to their children.
(that was tongue in cheek about angelina,,,, as far as I see it she is just looking for publicity about how wonderful she is (remember Billy Bob Thorton) she has a past too. and when she thinks her child is less than wonderful because she was born to having things, even she needs mental help.

How can someone with so much be so disfunctional. Brittany needs someone to dress her. Geez - where did she get her sense of style? And make sure she buys underwear too! Poor kids!

AS SOMEONE SAID TO YOU ONCE THAT WHEN YOU TRASH AROUND ,BRIIT, AND SHOW YOUR BUTT MORE THAN YOUR FACE YOU WILL PAY FOR IT.
IT IS A SHAME WHEN YOU THINK YOUR BUTT IS PRETTER THAN YOUR FACE AND YOUR KIDS WILL REMEMBER YOU THAT WAY. I HOPE YOUR EX IS MAN ENOUGH TO TRY TO KEEP AS MUCH OF YOUR TRASH AWAY FROM YOUR KIDS AS HE CAN, AND THAT HE WILL PUT AS MUCH OF THAT MONEY AWAY FOR THOSE KIDS AS HE CAN.

Fickle? No not really..... no one really likes K-Fed any better - we just have seen the real Britney in the mean time - at least hes not behaving like a train wreck. Tis the lesser of two evils

I find it very amusing and out right silly, that people feel they are qualified or even remotely knowledgable enough on someone ELSE's life to comment on who gets custody of anyone elses children...
furthermore, the "pulic" only sees and hears what the media wants us too...
so... we do not really have any real clue as to which if either of them are better fit to be parents.

To all of you who think that K-Fed is going after the kids for the money and that he didn't fight for his other kids, you got it all wrong. How about that his other kids aren't in danger with their mother. Shar Jackson isn't always in the papers, you never see her doing anything to harm her kids, she seems pretty stable. Britney is a train wreck. Kevin is trying to keep his boys safe. He doesn't have that problem with Kori and Kaleb. Thats why he wants custody. I say good for him!

I THINK K-FED SHOULD SEEK CUSTODY UNTIL BRITTANY GETS IT TOGETHER. I AM GUESSING HE DIDN'T GO FOR HIS OTHER CHILDREN BECAUSE HE KNOWS THEY ARE IN GOOD HANDS WITH MOTHER. BRITTANY ISN'T STABLE ENOUGH RIGHT NOW TO TAKE CARE OF HER CHILDREN, AND K-FED SHOULD STEP IN AND DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CHILDREN.
