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 dont like or dislike brit, but i do think she is a risk to the children. Kids grew up and what values they learn is from what they see around them. I think Brit has shown the world what her values are. I dont like Kevin as a choice either, but even if he is having a party every night, he is keeping his kids from seeing it by having them in their rooms, he is not out drinking and driving and putting innocent lives on the line, he is there for if they need to see a parent. I know those are not great things in a parent either, but given the 2 options, it is the best one. I honestly wish there was a 3rd. I think dont go after his kids with Shar because they do have a good mom, and I people are correct in he dont really want them from Brit, he like alot of others just knows they are unsafe with her. May be this will be a wake up to her and she will clean up her act and be able to go back and get full custody, but that will be Brits choice.

I think Britney Spears is a terrible mother. She doesn't even talk or listen to her own mother; she' s just so disrespectful. I am so shamed that I was a big fan of hers. I think Kevin is the better parent. He may be partying (who doesn't? My parents are going to a party tonight) but he is more responsible with his kids.

Britney is a crazy girl, not woman. I woman wouldn't be putting herself out there like a slut. What Britney needs to do is go to the gym, find a suitable hair stylist and be a mother to her beautiful children.

Those kids are gonna grow up and have to live with all their mother and father's mistakes. If I was the judge I would take the kids away from both Britney and Kevin. They cause too much drama! I know plenty of families that can't have children that would love to care for the boys.

If this had been any other couple no one would care! It must be so horrible to live in the spotlight having everybody knowing your every fault. Anyone who has been divorced knows that most times it becomes very ugly and the ONLY reason he erratic behavior is being brought into veiw is because of her celeb status. This is just another divorce and an ugly split. It is time to leave it alone.

does anyone realize how many folks are unable to conceive a pregnancy & cannot have children----while garbage like these 2 characters & others can drop a litter every 9 months. A tad unfair?

this also goes to tonya. i have ALWAYS loved britney. but her behavior since her divorce has proven that she cant even handle herself- why would she be able to handle two young children? i, like millions of other people, HATED kevin while he was with britney. but he has proven that he is a fit parent and although he has other children, that doesnt seem to be stopping him from being a father to ALL his children. i think kevin should get full custody- at least until britney puts her missing screws back in place.

Britney should have her kids with her as time gones on she'll take motherhood more realisticly, as it hits her and parrazzi leaves her alone. she'll be fine. plus they need bonding with their mother.

The article by Tmz staff , I want to ask a question, why do label Brits attorney a lawyer.
and the ex's attorney a mouthpiece?

Is it because the dumb broad has to pay for a change?

Its about time Equal rights and all!

Well, you know what, I'm not sure that either one of them should have kids - but if I had to pick right now.... I can only count on one hand how many time KFed has been snapped flashing his crotch, shaving his head for the photogs, etc. in the past year.... oh - thats right, none. Maybe he's trying to behave and act like a big boy knowing that he has two (more) babies that need at least one responsible parent. Not to say that its him - but it's not been looking too good for their mama either. And you know what - if you REALLY feel the NEED to go to Vegas... get a babysitter. Anyone who has been to Vegas, let alone being Britney Spears in Vegas, knows that its just not a place for babies.

K-Fed is a prostitute that used Britney. He is a con artist. How does that make him a good person.

britney wasn't doing fine before kevin, she was using drugs and drinking before she met him, and appartently she was using tons of drugs before he ever came into the picture. she married jason alexander for 2 days that was before kevin. she was messed up way before kevin ever came along.
