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.

maybe brit was having a bad day the day of the OK shoot all we got was their version , I would have a melt down if people constantly followed my every move and stuck a camera in my face and juged my every move id probally try knock them out , britney went to rehab she is trying you dont see her out and about falling down drunk or driving drunk she adores her sons and is a good mother. im confused how some of you think K fed is a better parent if Britney was not famous and had no money do you think KFed would still be around?? I think Not he is trash and a drug user

Britany should never be alone with her kids. She should never be allowed to drive with them. Brittany is a drug addict and she is out of control. Let her come and vist, if she is not high, but she will kill herself soon, so please protect the children.

Neither of these two are fit parents. Britney has destroyed her own career with her absolutely disgraceful behavior. KFed is a low class moron who married her for the money and 10 minutes of fame. He has about as much talent as a dead fish. He should put himself out as a male prostitute, because that is all he can do, wearing protection of course, because he needs no more children. Britney Spears was a cute kid who became a trashy adult. Too bad. She is talented, but has wasted it on her poor judgement of everything.
Those children should not be given to either of them. They really deserve much better. They did not ask to be brought into the world, and it is some world they have been exposed to.

JUSTA (No. 3) wonders why he didn't fight for custody of his other kids and attributes the reasoning there to being "the money."

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that he knew his other kids were in a stable home with a mother who was taking care of the children. Obviously that is not the case here.

Although I am not a Federline fan, I am much less a fan of children coming to harm or dying because of parental neglect. Apparently JUSTA doesn't feel that way. And we can dislike Kevin Federline all we want; according to the mother of his other children, he has always been a good father to them. Can we say that Britney Spears is acting like a good mother at this time?

She should be relieved of custody until such a time that she can show that she can be responsible for these babies. Period.

I was in a SHOCK how it all started...couldn't believe how naive Britt was...getting engaged to K-Fed (which...lol...reminds me od F-dex) with e huge diamond on he finger...while his first wife was pregnant with their second kid!!!
How could anything work under those circamstances....I felt sorry for the other woman - how she must have felt - carrying K-Fed's kid while he was in the news with another! His second child was not even born while he was doing Spears...And not much time elapsed...she's in the same shoes as the other woman = 2 kids and no husband...instead HUGE bills to pay...How stupid do you have to be to put yourself in a mess like that...

This is what's scary about Britney Spears: when you make Fed-Ex look like a sane, normal person and a good parent....... that's pretty bad.

Hey, let's finally start a new wave of waking up... and forgetting this loser and loser-ette ! She had talent ( limited ), made her money and now let her disapear and go back to stick-land, and be forgotten. he was a back-up ancer )( on her payroll...who slept with the boss who lived in an isolated bubble from the real world ). For the price of a condom, this Bit* h could have been free and still working...
Pass on any story of this human trainwreck of bad choices, stupidity and hick'-flavored low class !
If you're going to write something, write to the Tv stations, online sites, to stop their coverage NOW ! American, go read a book !!!!

Face it .........they are both clowns!!!! Not too sure about either of their parenting skills. One things for certain....who would let a booze hound, druggy, whore, skank who deliberately shows off her mangled p***y raise kids???? K-fed is no better. I would like to say that the kids should be raised by their grandparents........but Nasty Gap's mom is a nutbag also. The poor kids are going to grow up just like most kids today......confused, clueless, and disrespectful towards others.

I understand its people's own decision but in a case like this,
there should be some kind of screening process for baby making! Anyone remember the pics of Britney No-underwears SMOKING while she was pregnant???

If Britney was not rich or famous Kevin would have no desire to have anything to do with those kids, maybe Shar is "sane " because she is not famous and her every move or action is not observed or judged by a camera in her face 24/7 .

1. Why or what makes you think Shar wants to raise Brits kids.
2. He is no better parent...It's call about cash
3. Grandma lets her younger daughter live with her b/f at 16....And did i hear she's knocked up.....OH what a wonderful mother/grandmother.
4. Has the press ever followed you around all day snapping photos.
even the ones of the boys swimming were taken in the pruvacy of her own yard.
5. Like I keep saying no one follows K-Fed around snapping pictures because he's a NOBODY....living off her money.
I for one think she should have full custody of her kids....Or if he's so concerned let him keep the boys without any of the cash thats attached!!!!!!! How long would he want them then?....Like Shars kids, he took intrest in them after Brit helped plan it out...She had his kids when he was in Vegas parting..Guess he wasn't all that concerned then.

To Tonya 7/30/07 1:15 pm,
Who has proven themselves to have crossed the line into crazy eccentric "celeb" world, the past year? BRITNEY!!!
Sure everyone thought or thinks Fed-ex was a lowlife but it was due to how he behaved towards Brit , her fame and MONEY! However the person who is with these BABIES has shown that she has no interest in getting help, changing her lifestyle now that she's a parent and has alienated her family and friends.
How can she be a better mom when she behaves like she answers to no one and wants to do whatever she wants whitout regards to her babies! She wants to live like a teenager or 20 year old KID but she's pushing 26 looking like 36 and having no success at whatever comeback or dressing up "sexy"that she's trying to pull.
She is the worst car wreck to look at but you just can't help it. When you think she can't go any lower she has another shovel and digs even deeper.
So yeah even Fed ex at this point looks like the best parent and I hope he gets them, since she sure acts like the boys are an inconvenience or an afterthought to use when she needs a photo taken for a gossip rag.

Hey, if Paul McCartney's gold-digging bioootch can get $100 million for a couple of years of marriage why are ya'll hatin' on K-Fed for getting paid? Women have been sticking it to men for years so it's great to see the men sticking it to the women. And I'm sick of the sexist remarks about K-Fed being a father. Men can be great parents and role models as well despite what the feminatzi's would have us believe. Since Britney's out partying all the time wearing no panties at least K-Fed seems more stable of the two and is hopefully taking care of the kids. Go guys! Show these women what we are capable of.

Its to unfortunate that all this has happened to her and the worst thing is we have all come to a bad conclusion of britney and kevin becuase of their being famous, that doesnt mean that they are horrible people or horrible parents. I am a parent and i have many times gone out and partied and gotten drunk that doesnt mean i dont love and care for my kids and it shouldnt mean that for the famous either. We are not a part of there lives in the private sense, and how horrible it must be no matter how much money and fame it must be for them to have only bad things mentioned about them in the public eye and the sad thing is that those two gorgeous boys are the ones who ultimately suffer the most. I wish britney and kevin and any other public figure that is going thru private matters thru the public the best of luck
