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.

I think Britney should NOT get custody of those two boys all she does is PARTY. Let someone else raise them like their father or maybe even Britney's mom . BRITNEY YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A SPOILED LITTLE BRAT. YOU LET YOUR FAME GO TO YOUR HEAD. GET OVER YOURSELF.

I am amazed that people are so interested in these two, You can go to any trailer park in america and find couples that are just like them or just watch an episode of cops.

WELL HOW INTERESTING..THOSE YOUNG BABY BOYS DO NOT NEED TO BE USED LIKE PAWNS IN A CHESS GAME OR ANY GAME. THEY ARE NOT GAME PIECES .THEY ARE REAL LIVE CHILDREN AND NEED STABILITY.NOT THE YO YO LIFE STYLES OF THEIR PARENTS. NEITHER ARE STABLE OR MATURE ENOUGH TO BE PARENTS ON A FULL TIME BASIS.THE COURT NEEDS TO TAKE CHARGE OF THIS SITUATION AND DO WHATS BEST FOR THESE BEAUTIFUL INNOCENT CHILDREN. AS FOR SUPPORT,THE ONLY ONES THAT NEED TO BE SUPPORTED ARE THOSE BOYS, NOT THEIR LEACH OF A FATHER AND NOR THEIR DING BAT BRAINED ,POOR EXCUSE OF A MOTHER. SOMEONE NEEDS TO TAKE CHARGE OF WHAT MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE BETTER WELFARE OF THEM AND NOT WHATS BEST FOR THE PARENTS THAT CAN'T MAKE UP THEIR MINDS IF THEY WANT TO STILL BE TEENY BOPPERS OR SEMI ,KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU ARE DOING, PEOPLE. ''SAVE THE CHILDREN''!!! WHERE ARE YOU NOW!!!

I think Britney needs help very badly. Hopefully she will get help before she loses everything that she holds dear to herself. Come on, Britney, wake up and stop acting like a cheap tart.

JUSTA, maybe Federline isn't pursuing custody of his other kids because they have a SANE mother, and he has not had newsworthy issues in rearing his children with her. So, in your own sarcastic words, it probably isn't the money. Some men are REAL fathers.

sick of trainwrecks - i never said anything about kevin, i never said i didn't like him, i guess you missed that somewhere in your tirade. i said i don't think she is guilty of being a bad parent, which many believe. i didnt say she hasn't made any mistakes, all i said is the court would in no way give her 50/50 custody if she was unfit, and i'm sure kevin would not allow that either - so how am i being unreasonable in what i said? as for her mother, i am sure they will mend their ways - picture this - you a young mother of two, pretty much have all that you ever wanted, and you get into a disagreement with your mother, and she turns around and slaps you in the face - i'm sure many on here agree she probably had it coming (lol), but wouldnt you be mad, or would you turn around and go "oh, ok, thanks for that!". according your angry post, i highly doubt it....

FROM KENTUCKY    

I don't understand you folks. K-Fed don't need the kids or want them. If he did he'd have his other kids. And how many mothers are out there that party and mess up from time to time and are not on meds? Not to many but they don't get trashed in the news daily! Brit can be a good mother and if the press would leave her a lone she would be fine. It's also a shame that K-Fed is getting rich off of her. To me he's a dead beat and he should be the one getting trashed in the news because that's all he married her for and I believe that is the only reason he wants the kids.

Kevin is a piece of crap and really has no room to be saying Brit is a bad mother.If he can't financially support his kids then he shouldn't have custody. And not afford it off alimony and support either. He is no better of a role model either. What about his other kid(s) he has with his ex. The guy is a poster child for screwing anything with a hole and then bailing on the mother when she needs him most. When he got with Brit all he saw was dollar signs. I could see that a mile away. Too bad she saw it too late. He was a nothing before he met her and will be a nobody after. She made him.

How do you guys know he did not care about his other children? Ever since Brit and Kevin first started dating, they have been photographed with his kids. Even Shar Jackson said that was hard to watch. Maybe he did not fight for custody because Shar was not going around town acting like she had no sense. I would fight for custody if the other parent acted like Brit. Hopefully we all would!
