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.

If they were regular people and not celebrities they would have had their children taken away or put with a family member. The poor children are going to grow up just like their parents since that is all they know.

WHO IN THE HELL NEEDS $15,000 A MONTH FOR CHILD SUPPORT, I CAN UNDERSRAND IF THE WERE HANDICAPPED OR SPECIAL NEEDS BABIES. THERE ARE MANY PARENTS THAT ARE GOOD PARENTS AND MAKE IT WELL WITHOUT THAT MUCH MONEY. KEVIN IS A LOSER AND FREE LOADER. HE DOES NOT DESERVE $20,000 IN SPOUSAL SUPPORT FOR NO REASON. HE'S DOING QUITE WELL FOR SOMEONE WITH NO SKILLS.

Maybe Britney Spears is taking medications, we don't know because the stupid papparazzi doesn't film it but maybe the medication is making her crazy. I don't like pills because they're hard to swallow. I don't like her giving money for spousal support either. Kevin Federline is cute but he makes me sick. Britney Spears can't get her life back together if he will always be her shadow.

Money always comes into it, however one of the reasons it would seem Kevin would be better than Britney is is he is not all over the news in his underwear, without his underwear, in and out of treatment . It is hard to say how things are between him and other children as that is not something that makes the news. He may not be as worried about other kids as their mom may be taking better care of them. We don't see his ex-wife in news acting a fool. No matter what it is going to be hard for the kids and what they need is not money but good strong family to take care of them. Money can't buy that. bkn

You gotta admit, K-Fed's looking a lot more stable than Brit, who has a lot farther
to freak & fall before she's done. I think she's classic bi-polar. She's paranoid.
She's isolating herself from everyone who can & would help her. She's really
a.f.u. and it's bad enough she's passed on these genes, without having her
act out all over the two babies.

This is probably why half of the children who arent with there birth mothers or fathers are with grandparents. Give the kid to britneys mom.

I feel ashamed of myself for even looking at this story. I agree with the poster that said everyone hates k-fed, and now they want him to have the kids? Of course he wants the money. He left his last partner WHILE SHE WAS PREGNANT with his child for Britney. I would say that's a pretty strong message about his commitment to child rearing. I feel sorry for Britney. Yeah, she's trashed herself pretty bad, but where has her mother been this whole time (besides throwing her in rehab)? She's been hanging out with the ex??? It's just sad.

She does need some psychiatric help. That doesn't make her a bad mother. She also needs some good friends. That's what she is lacking. I hope she can find them.

I think this whole thing is stupid! They seemed happy and had more money when they didn't bring children into this world. I always say make sure you know the time is right to have children. Now, these poor kids will have a dead beat father and a mother who is still not sure what her purpose in life is, if she wants to even be a mother and 3 not even sure who she hates/likes. I think K-Fed is a moron. He only wants those kids because he wants 1 the money and 2 I would not be surprised if he is going to rub these kids into his other ex-wife (who he has 2 children with and paying child support to). If you think about it, I bet if he gets money, all the money that Britney will be giving to him will be split half and half...some will go to his children now and some to his other two children. If you ask me this whole situation is idiotic and I think if anyone cares about these kids more it is definetly Britney's mother...she should get these kids!

Everyone must keep in mind the motives of the media. Is there proof K-fed doesn't care about his other kids or is that an assumption? I saw the kids mom on Larry King and she said he is a good father to their kids. Also, the media will always look for a negative and then try to multiply the damage. Having said that, i think these young Hollywood "girls" who can't seem to stay out of trouble are knowingly putting themselves in the spotlight. The only one with any real talent (imo) is Lohan and even she is replaceable. Until these "girls" realize they are not girls anymore and they need to start acting like responsible adults, the troubles for them will continue. This above the law attitude they have is sickening. Their PARENTS need to step in and explain to them the reality of life. Money and fame doesn't give them a free pass to break the law. Best thing Brit can do for herself is slow down and focus on music. If she has any talent left in her she should focus on it and get serious about her career and motherhood.

I think Federline has always been in this marriage only for the money. It appears to have always been what he could get for himself. He is nothing more then a baby maker. As for Britney she needs to get some desperate help. I fel sorry for those two beautiful children. They need something stable in their lives. That doesn't appear to be the case right now.
