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 agree that KFed is the lesser of two evils here...Brit is too unstable at the moment. Maybe that will change...who knows...who cares? Hey, am I the only one who is wondering why I've never seen pictures of the Jayden? Has anyone? Why the secrecy about him, when Brit's paraded Sean around almost from day one? What's up with that?

this guy only married Britney for a free ride. He should not be getting child support if they share custody. Each should pay the expenses for the time period they have the kids. Spousal support????????? what a joke. He left his other woman with a baby and one in the stomach, I guess she didn't have to give him money? or did she.
Britney is a small town girl, the dangers of stardom did he in. She needs to go home to Louisianna and recoop. the hell with Hollywierd.
thanks
praying for this young woman. remember she is young

Neither of these publicity hungry idiots should have those children.Spears is so eager to blame Momma for her actions, blame the world, blame the work load she carried, blame her manager, blame the world, whatever.NOBODY forced her into anything,SHE made all the choices. This girl had the means, not only money wise but help wise. There are so many places to get help IF...they want help but she chose to do all she did.If it were anyone else she would be in jail. her kids taken and when she chose to act like a mental case, put away.These so called stars are disgusting. How many GOOD, DECENT people would love to have the means to live like they do and they throw it all away for publicity.Fame should be in ones self-respect and respect from others.Spears brought two adorable boys into this world ones who didn't ask to be and now shes destroying their precious lives too. One day they will read all the idiotic things their parents did and know how disgracful Mom and Dad were.Give them to a family with values and morals, give them a chance to know and feel family love.Children need to feel love, feel safe and protected.All they're getting is shoved around because they have parents that haven't a clue to give them the right to grow up in good moral values. They have to STOP blaming everyone and put the blame where it belongs.We all have choices, we wake up to and live through choices and how hard is it to make good ones as well as bad ones........its our choice.

I still can't get past the $15K/month in child support. My God I only get $40/week! Is the large amount to keep them in the lifestyle they are used to?

Brit hsd made it that way Tonya.. she has shown us all how really wacked out she is.. she has had every opportunity to show us she can be a great Mom and she has done just the opposite! Her latest OK mag photo shoot just tops that off.. and So far what has KFED done since the split? He has worked, taken care of the boys when he has them.. and not been a crazy person like her.. Gee, dosent take much to see who out of the two bad choices is now a better choice to raise these boys! I would rather Die than allow Brit to even Baby sit my kids!

It was well known before she even married that jerk that she wanted to get married and have kids he stepped up cause he saw the money train! I think he and Shar were in on it together plotting for kev to marry brit and drive her crazy and take her kids and her money!! He just wants the money thats it!!! He could care less about anything else!!

How can anyone judge what they don't know? Even with Brit and Kevin's crazy behavior we simply don't know what goes on behind closed doors - they may both be adequate parents....unless someone was there witnessing poor parenting we as the public really have no basis for judgment. As long as they keep their crazy behavior and divorce issues away from their kids they can be as nuts as they want to be.

As of right now, those babies need stability, so Kevin would be the better of the two. When Brit gets her life together then she should gain full custody. As far as Kevin not going after his other kids-How many of you have seen Shar's name in a scandel? Or have you heard of her flashing people or going to rehab? It may have alot to do with money but I think it has more to do with the sanity and abilities of their mothers. And to be perfectly honest, Brit shouldn't have gotten 50/50, it should be every other weekend. Then as she progresses in her health and lifestlye, that's when she should gain more time with her kids.

How Hollywood Works 101: How many celebs are in Hollywood and how many of them do you see followed by paparazzi? Think about it....out of all the celebs admit that you see the same 10 or so continuously. Do you think the other 90 percent NEVER leave their homes? Brit, Paris, Nicole, Lindsay etc all LOVE to be followed and snapped. There are also 24 hours in a day 7 days a week. We DO NOT see what is going on in their lives every waking moment. This is not the Truman Show! In between, they lead other lives. What you see in front of the camera is what they want you to see! Don't think for one moment this isn't staged. This is what keeps them in the public eye. In fact, most of these aforementioned celebs have their publicists call to tell paparazzi where they will be!!! I am not saying that some of them don't get "caught" by the cameras. But when you see the same ones over and over again in a city with tons of celebs, it makes sense. I know this because I have firsthand info to the hollywood track.

Response to Jamie's Comment

If you feel that BS is such an excellent mother, then why in the hell would a mother drive with her infant child on her lap (very dangerous task)? Also, when the tabloids was telling you how great of an artist/celebrity she is, apparently you ate it up! So why in the hell should we not eat it up when her nasty ass is acting like a fool in front of the tabloids!? Your opinion about these free whores (i.e. BS, PH, LL and NR) does not matter to me nor anyone else who believes BS nor K-Fed should not be allowed to raised those precious boys! That bitch BS knew exactly what she was paying for when he left SJ pregnant and with child, therefore if she has to continue paying him so be it! As I said before she is getting what she desperately wanted to be paying for "NOTHING"! SJ is no better than BS because she is speaking very highly of that "DEAD BEAT, WANNA-BE MAN" which is the father of her children! When BS decided that she wanted to take that "BASTARD" off of SJ's chest just because she wanted him than she got exactly what she bargained for! A whore is a whore, is a whore therefore that is what this harlot gets! That bitch felt like she could have any man she wanted but instead of getting a real man who was available, she'd rather settle for someone else wanna-be man with children and baby on the way and break up that home! She knew right along that he had nothing to offer in a relationship but pop those babies out just because that is what she wanted (everything SJ has and had)! SJ and BS is around the same age and you do not see her in the public tabloids or public's eye acting like a trashy, nasty whore! K-Fed nor BS should have custody of those boys and the reason who could never get custody of his and SJ's children is because no matter how much money BS has to pay him (and good for her), he will always be a broke-ass wanna-be man! In a way I hope he does get full custody so BS will have to pay him more and more money and if I were SJ, I'd be right in the courts to get more and more money from him for the children that she has with him! Jump off the empire state building you slut and bastard!

Finally, America can put this long nightmare behind them and begin the long healing process. Perhaps Paris and Lindsay can finally find closure as well.

Now, let's move on to another set of overindulged morons.....

i feel both parents should take parenting classes and get there lives staightened out. I mean whats more important anyways ( partying all the time or being home and raising your children in a home by parents they can be proud of. Think of the children first and not yourselves. they need a safe and stable home and stable parents even if the parents are in different homes. You should always put your children first and GOD.

Well, the prenup should stop K-Fed from wiping Britney completely out. So, Let K-Fed get whatever he's going to get, which MAY have been the plan all along, then maybe Brit can get her life back in order. Right now, Brit is not stable. She needs professional help. I really wish the best for Britney. Can someone please grab her, put her in a straight-jacket if needed, and get her to a hospital or something!!!!

By the way, no one would miss either one of them if they did jump off the empire state building! Neither would we miss PH, LL or NR either because all of them are useless uneducated poor excuses of human beings!
