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.

Its sad to say but as a parent myself, I can see that Brittany is in a very bad spiral downhill out of control and needs some immediate medical attetion. What reason would she have to rebel. She is an adult. I think a good physch evaluation should be court ordered. Not only is she messing her own life up, its unimaginable to see what she might do to her childrens.... God help them all !

i think those kids should be taken away from both of them and they both should pay child support to the ppl that are giving then a good home and taking care of the kids needs and not thier own.

It has absolutely nothing to do with hating a person, its who's more FIT as a parent..... when you have children of your own, YOU'LL UNDERSTAND.... until then.... you shouldnt really give your opinion !!!

The kids are just another payday for fedex.......if he cared so much why doesnt he have custody of his other kids............No one knew or cared who he was til he started dating Britney..........I think the press should back off of britney and let her get her life straight...for the kids sake......he is a loser and will always remain a loser.....this is just my opinion.......take it for what its worth........kevin

To #3...Shar Jackson has always been an excellent mother to his kids. He doesn't have to worry about them. Britney on the other hand, has shown she isnt fit to take care of her own self much less her own children. She has ruined every relationship she had, and she needs real help. She needs to NOT be treated like a celebrity and find a good rehab/ counseling program to take care of her problems.

Kevin may not be everyones pick for a father figure, but he is all those kids have as a parent that isn't nuts. I think had Britney done the rehab and took it seriously and came out and acted like the mature adult she was 2 years ago, She would not be going throgh this now. Kevin would have signed the divorce papers without any problems. But she went nuts after Sean Preston was born.

The kids sneed their mother, but not in the state she is in.

Before any of you "therapists" decide who you think should have custody, perhaps you should consider hopping on a plane and plan on spending at least a month evaluating both these people in person and at their home. You may also want to see how they take care of their children behind closed doors. Now if you are not prepared to do this, you should be prepared to SHUT UP! You only know what you see and read in the media and have never met either K_fed or Britney. Leave the evaluations to the real specialists.. the judge!

I too was not too keen on K-Fed. However, More behavior has come to light about Britney that requires a reevaluation of opinions. K-Fed was Chased by Britney and I don't know too many guys that could have restisted her and her money. She was good looking, Popular and Rich. Fast forward to today. We have seen many pictures of K-fed's other children with him and Britney, so he may not have custody but he has been in their life. Britney is an embarassment to all females at this time. From her behavior which seems to be from drug use in addition to drinking, flashing privates - which will probably embarass her boys later in life and her ongoing tactics are a poor reflection of her. At least K-fed is smart enough to stay out of the lime light. I also give him credit for trying. While his rapper episode was a joke, he was actually quite good on the commerical and CSI and should pursue acting. Frankly I don't care about either of them but after reading the comments thought I would chime in. I hope Brittany gets it together for herself and her many young fans. I actually think everyone should just leave her alone and send a loud message that her behavior is unacceptable. However is it hard to look away from a prolong disaster happening right in front of you.

WHO says BRIT or KEVIN should get these children. If this was NOT a celeb couple.. authorities would have come in and snatced those two children up and put them in a foster home. WHY HAVE THEY NOT STARTED A REPORT ON THIS? JUST WAITING FOR ONE OF THE CHILDREN TO GET HURT>??????? Maybe the best person to have these children is a
grandparent so the parents can both go out and do their parting and not worry about the kids.
WHY WAIT.??? No one here is saving FACE.!! No one looks better than the other.

Have any of you seen even one picture or read one story about Kevin Federline parenting any of his four children? I have not. For all I know, he's a horrible parent. For all I know, he does no parenting, leaving it all to relatives and nannies.

Why are people voting for him as the best parent? You don't even know what you are voting for.

He married her only for her money to begin with. Even with a pre-nup he'll get a substantial monthly amount even if it's only for child support. He's just greedy.
