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.

Why do you equate seeing pics of him with the kids as being a good father. Personally, I think the fact you don't see pics of him with the kids is good. Do subject small children to a camera mob

Ugh, those poor, poor children - and I don't mean financially! My heart breaks for them. Brit & Fed-Ex are so messed up. The lesser of 2 evils should not be an option for child custody. So sad!

doesn't that say something? normally, 50/50 custody is reserved for "stable, normal" people - maybe she is stable and normal, and what you see is her being goofy and being a person of her own... if she was unstable, she wouldn't have any custody... doesnt that make sense.....

I think kevin should get the kids.Shar is a wonderful mom so he have nothing to worry about when it comes to his kids.Britney on the other hand she the worst parent a child can ask for. Kevin choses not to take his kids to the press.He is right he play with them in the safety of their home. she cares for no one but herself. why is her lawyer asking for the arrangement to be a secret the kids live with him for her to be paying the amt of money to him a month. She deserve everything that is coming to her.

hora, what makes you think she isn't seeking help, or on medications? well, maybe not going to therapy, since every move she makes is recorded,so i guess we would know that, but no one said she wasn't on medications... maybe that's why she is the way she is, you ever consider that? i think she is bipolar, and you can't just "level" someone out entirely w/meds & therapy, it takes more than that... and stress doesnt help

This story does not make sense! Nobody goes to court asking the judge to approve joint custody, then a week later ask for full custody. Kevin's lawyers would never do that. Also weird that according to the story Kevin gets joint custody AND child support. Sounds to me like Kevin has custody of those kids and Britney gets visitation. Kevin may be upset with the custody order only because Britney's visitation is not supervised. Why would the custody orders be sealed otherwise? Ya'll need to check your facts.

I don't find Britney Spears or K - Fed a disgrace to white people.
You would have to hold them up to a certain role model light first wouldn't you? They are celebs, Not entertainers who represent the American white people! lol.
Not everything is about race be real.

Thats tough - im not sure who should have the kids. The lone fact that Kevin Federline has not sought FULL custody of the kids with britneys erratic behavior says alot about him. Seems to me he likes them big checks he gets and the days here and there with the kids. Who knows - maybe he is filing papers for custody. The fact that someone asked how come we dont see him with the kids...well thats because unlike Britney - Kevin stays home with the kids and HANGS OUT with them. Does she have to make a hollywood blvd appearance everytime she has the kids?? Personally I dont think the kids are safe with her and im not sure about kevin..his 15 minutes are over so its hard to read him. It seems like the couple of people who are "current" in britneys life are the only ones not trashing her. One minute her ex assistant is about to talk and the next minute shes not...can u say PAID OFF. Like Lohan I dont think PROMISES did anything for Britney. Then again - its not the facilities fault.....you have to WANT to be helped and considering she denied ever having a problem....she will never be able to accept her troubles and move past them. Perhpas Shar Jackson is a good mom as well and thats why Federline is not seeking custody of those kids. I dont see Shar shaving her head, flashing her taco and doing anything under the sun to get a new headline. So my final vote on who should get the kids....hell give them to Larry Birkhead!!
