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.

Perhaps adoption is something to consider....those children deserve 2 functional parents who would love them and put them first.

I am suprised at some of the comments made on this site.

What is important is the childrens welfare, not who has the most money or is more famous.

Whom has been in the news the most for the most unfit behaviour? Whom has been shown to be the most stable parent.

Neither one is perfect, but Britney has definently not shown good judgement in her comeback.

Would you want to grow up hearing how Trashy your mother was? her actions will follow them the rest of their lives and influance how they turn out. Doesnt appear that Brit has her childrens best interests in life as a priority here, only her own. Fame and money does not make a person, behaviour does.

If you have to sell yourself on sexual appeal and not talent, then your talent must not be that good in the first place, and she hasnt been real talented lately.

There are many famous people whom have not had to become trashy to be be great entertainers and make a name for themselves. Brit, as well as others like Paris cant not make it without selling themselves as sex objects....how sad to ruin ones life like that.

I feel that the problem with celebrity couples is that the publicity they receive from their lives makes even the simplest task difficult because nothing they do is considered private. Their lives basically become a public display and especially in situations where the couple have children, then the ones who really suffer are the children. Especially when the parents no longer can maintain a relationship. In the case of Britney and Kevin, I personally feel that she invited whatever problems she now has with him when knowing that he was involved with Shar Jackson took it upon herself to make him her man. If you will go to the point of taking another woman's boyfriend or husband and try to make a life with them, you are asking for problems. had they been apart or something like that then it would have been cool. But he was with Shar and Britney decided that she had to have him and the end result is what you see now.

But beyond that, what has to happen now is regardless of who was wrong or right in this situation, the best interest of the children must be considered. They did not ask to come into this world, that was brought about by the parents. So regardless of what everybody thinks, the real victims if it is not handled properly will be the children and what is going to ensue is a tug of war between Britney and Kevin. Before any character bashing goes on on either side of the token, there was something that transpired between them for them to bring 2 beautiful children in this world and even if they didn't have enough between them for them to agree to stay together, they need to at least come to some kind of agreeance on those children being brought up in a positive fashion. There does not need to be a lot of character bashing on either party's part because they weren't doing that when they were together and the worse thing to do to a child is to let them hear one parent putting the other one down.

Wrong, right, or indifferent, Britney is their mother, and Kevin is their father. And if I could speak personally to either party, I would encourage them to remember that whatever they do be it public or private is going to have a direct impact on their children and that they should strive as hard as they can to set examples that their children as they grow up will be proud of.

I pray that all will be well with all of them.

Post #8 says, "i am not fickle; i am objective which is something some of you can't seem to be. i never liked or disliked k-fed. on the other hand, i have ALWAYS hated spears since day one. my opinion as to who should have full custody of those children comes from the fact that spears is a freaking idiot, she's a drunk, a crackhead and worst of all, has serious mental issues. i am convinced she has at least a personality disorder. now, there are alot of people out there with mental disorders that can take care of their family if they're on the right medication/therapy combo but brittney is an epic fail in life and refuses help. i say good for her- let her kill herself. k-fed, on the other hand, can take of the kids better"

I think I could name a few other things this poster is!! I assume by fact you mean the information that the media has allowed you to have made available to you. I seriously doubt you are telling any of us that you personally know Brit or K-Fed and have personally spent ample amounts of time with them. The ONLY thing you know about these two people is what the MEDIA has allowed you to know or made you think you knew. I don't think the headlines of National Enquirer allow for judgement as to who should be the better parent!! The press cares NOTHING about K-Fed because the public in general does not....so you think that qualifies him as a dad?!! He could be a drunk, but the press doesn't follow him as they do Brit. There has been nothing really to even indicate he actually spends time with the kids and that they are not constantly with some nanny. I certainly hope you are not in the medical field because it is pretty scary that you think you are qualified to assess a person and recommend treatment based on news in the tabloids. And you said Brit was the one with issues?? I believe there is a disorder that has to do with people obsessing over the media and using things they read to make some realistic life for themselves in a fantasyland.....maybe you need to see if they have medicine for that! It is amazing what you can do with photographs these days and flim is even better. They can actually take a phrase you say and make it into something you never said to the camera with some simple editing. I think you need to get off your judgemental high horse and get that the judge had something you did not.....his evidence came from other places and others sources outside of a tabloid!!!!

I don't think either one of them should have gotten custody without supervision. He isn't in the news as often but then he isn't as famous or as rich so nobody is following him around waiting for him to screw up but he never did want custody of his other kids so in this case it has to be about the money right? Those poor babies, mama is a mess and daddy wants them for their net worth! Why do people like this have babies in the first place? Servants take better care of these babies than either of their parents will at least at this time anyway. Maybe when the Kevin and Brit get older things might be different.

Shar has her own reality show now. On it she said that it took her a long time to get over K-Fed doing what he did to her and the kids. She was PREGNANT and he left her sitting with nothing and left to go be with Britney. I think that is the proof in the pudding!! He is and was ONLY in it for the money! That is why he fathered two so quickly- to increase the amount he could get for child support. This was a ploy all along. It is not uncommon (STUPID but NOT uncommon) for women that are in panic mode about loosing their children, to continue to do stupid things. If she does them in the public eye, the media ALWAYS makes it look like something more! They just had a big thing about her getting caught with her youngest child in her lapwhile driving again. Come to find out- she was in her DRIVEWAY and he was crying so she stopped and took him out. The media started snapping photos and her body guard took the child out of the car and carried him the rest of the way so she could park. By then the damage was done and people looked at those photos and were her judge and jury- AGAIN. She has made no more mistakes than most first time parents, especially ones having to learn everything on her own and having NOBODY to help teach her as she goes. The difference is, as mothers you don't have someone there trying to make everything look like she is a monster.

It is kind of hard for Kevin to be the worse parent when he NEVER has the kids but hey atleast Britney loves her kids and spends time with them unlike some celeb moms who just dump them off on the nanny and its back to work 2 weeks later.

Britney has done some pretty dumb stuff that there is no excuse for but atleast she is actually being a parent to her kids unlike the dead beat dad. He does not give two cents about those kids he just knows if he gets custody CHING CHING he gets money. Notice he did not fight for his other two kids? It is because Shar is freaking broke, he would not get anything in child support from her. How about when Brit first went into rehab Kevin got the kids and not even a week of having them he had them in Vegas and was dumping them on nannies. When have you ever even seen a picture of Kevin with any of his kids including the ones by Shar? Before Sean and Jayden came along Kori was always with Britney and Kevin yet whenever you saw Britney there was Kori with her and no sign of Kevin.

One of Brits main reasons for leaving Kevin is because she was a married single mother. Kevin has never been there for her or the kids, right after both Sean and Jayden were born he was out partying. He actually left Britney just days after she got out of the hospital from having Jayden , he went to I believe Vegas to party with friends after she begged him to stay and that was the last straw for her.

In my eyes Kevin is a user, freeloader, dead beat dad and goldigger. Britney should of left him and his GF Shar in there Trailer park which is actually where Kevin and Shar were living, they were about to move into Shars parents and declare bankruptcy but then Britney came along and changed BOTH of there lifes, she actually bought Shar a house. Shar is now getting all this media attention that without Britney she would of never got. It is really sad that Kevin married Britney to get famous yet he is getting nowhere with fame and his EX Shar is actually getting media attention, LOL. Notice how since Brit dumped him he has been hanging with Shar, he sees she is now getting money and he wants it but she wont take him back

I forgot to add TMZ reporting that Kevin is getting 15k for child support is false, if you have 50/50 custody none gets child support.
