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 think that Britney needs some time out of the spotlight to get herself together. I am from Louisiana and being from here, I am proud that she made it and would be proud to see her continue to prove to the world that she has what it takes to make it. I think that she probably had post pardom depression that wasn't diagnosed. When people are going through something like that, they try to self medicate. Britney is hurting and self medicating and needs help.
If WE would all stop reading the magazines and judging her every move, maybe she could get better. I feel so sad for the children because they are innocent victims of all that is going on.
Kevin seems to love ALL of his children and we can't judge him, Brit, or Shar because we don't know the truth of what goes on behind closed doors.

the kids should got to one of the grandparents...both brit and kevin need to get their acts together befor they can take care of their kids! The Judge is out of his mind if he doesn't order a weekly check on the stableness of the homes those kids are living in.

The other mama, Shar someone is doing fine with the kids K Fed does not need to get custody of them, and she says he is a great dad.

Brit is not stable right now and does not need primary responsibility for those boys. I would think not seeing pictures everywhere of him with the kids would be a good thing.

tonya, Yea he should get custody. Last year Britney didn't shave her head, go to rehab, or have multiple breakdowns. She's unstable right now! it would be irresponsible to allow her extended time alone with those kids, she's unpredictable and has put those kids in danger more than once. K-fed's no father of the year but he hasn't done anything to prove that he'd be a bad dad, except party a lot and make bad music but so does SHE!! He should get full custody and Britney should get visitation rights until she gets herself together. They should do a full mental evaluation on her before any decisions are made though. She really needs some mental help!!!!!!!!!! But either way Child Services should keep an eye on them.

Just because everyone hated K-Fed, that did not mean he was not a good father. The woman that has children before Britney, did not say he was a bad father. Britney dose not need those children, they were only a spite towards the woman before her. What, do want to wait until something happens to those children, before you realize she not a good parent.

Britney is great. She is beautiful. Why do people pick on her ? K Fed is just who he is.
Why such hate?
Those are their children.
People are entitled to their opinions, but those are Britney's and K Fed's kids. It's their choice what to do about them.

CPS needs to step in and put those poor children in foster care and make BOTH parents pay for it. Both of them should have to pay child support to a third party parent! Neither one of those loonies has ANY business reproducing offspring!!!! Money does not give you the witts to raise a baby and BOTH of them have proven that to the furthest extent!!!! Take those kids to a family that might actually BE THERE to raise them!

Maybe the reason Kevin did not ask for custody of his other children is that he feels they are safe with THEIR mothers.

Give me a break, "in the know," or should we call you BRITNEY? Britney is a loony-tunes, Shar isn't, so why would Kevin need to have full custody of his other children? We don't have to know Britney personally to know she is an UNFIT MOTHER, she is all over the news with her demented stunts. We have even seen her PRIVATE PARTS, and she is still undressing for the paps, or did you miss her striptease act at the beach the other day? She also was not supposed to take those children out of the state without WRITTEN PERMISSION, but she did anyway, took them to Vegas and again made their lives miserable with her stupid antics.

Britney begs for the attention of paps, even still strips for them just TO get attention if it's been a slow day for attention for her, so don't EVEN imply like she can't help it if the paps are all over her because SHE is the one who makes sure this happens. It was Britney who called OK magazine, wasn't getting enough attention. And just look at the way she tended to her pets while there, my GOD, she shouldn't be allowed around her own children at all.

Compared to Britney, Kevin is a saint, and comparing their situation to Kevin and Shar is just too dishonest. Shar and Kevin are not nutcases and all over town stripping for paps and being nutcases in front of EVERYONE. And no, I don't know Britney PERSONALLY, and THANK GOD FOR THAT! But we DO know all the crap she pulls, because she makes sure she pulls it all in front of magazines and paps, so as long as she is making herself a PUBLIC SPECTACLE of dementia gone amok, we WILL comment on her PUBLIC life that means she is unfit to be around her children. If she won't get help for her mental problems, she shouldn't have her children.
