What K-Fed Really Wants from Britney

8/13/2007 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the custody battle between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline tell TMZ $$$$ may really be at the heart of the tussle over the kids.

As we first reported, K-Fed is going back to court asking for more custody of the kids. Federline just agreed to a 50/50 split. Then, he turned around almost immediately and filed papers asking for 70/30. So why such a sudden change of heart?

It's puzzling that Kevin is suddenly alarmed, given that he's had absolutely no contact with Spears for almost three months. In fact, we're told she's begging him to communicate because of parenting issues but he won't play ball.

That brings us to the paperwork Federline filed. Sources say there are declarations from Kevin, both of his lawyers, Kevin's nanny and a nanny who interviewed with Britney in October, 2006, before the couple separated. In the papers, Federline's lawyer also included various magazine articles about Britney. Legal experts say good luck getting that into evidence.

Alli Sims, Britney's cousin, was served over the weekend. Kevin's lawyer wants to take her deposition. Now here's what's telling. Federline's lawyer also wants to take Britney's depo, but a source connected with Alli says the deposition notice Britney received is all financial -- in other words, the references are all about money, not the kids.


So does K-Fed want more custody just so he can get more cash? A Federline source says it's all about the kids and not money. Federline wants Britney under oath talking about whether she drinks and how she parents the kids.

Oh, and by the way: Kev's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, is asking that Britney pay his legal fees for the hearing and preparation -- and that they're in the six figures.

I read that K-Fed was initially getting 15k in child support per month, in addition to 20k per month in spousal support. if that's true, then he's been pulling in 35k a month off of Britney. And now he wants more. He won't admit it, but that comes with having more custody of the children. He's been out partying and whoring around as well since their divorce, Britney's not the only party lover in the family.

And I remember the news were reporting through a lot of the time they were married, that they were fighting a lot, mainly over him leaving she and the boys home while he went out partying with friends. as well as partying with other women. So suddenly now, he oh so concerned about his sons? Ya, right. They're meal tickets for him. I'm no fan of Britney's per say. I like her music, but I think she's pretty immature - hope she'll grow up a little a very soon.

But whatever I think of Britney as a person, one thing I will give her credit for, is she has worked for her money. And she's been working since she was a kid. The only reason any of them have money, including money spent on their sons, has been because of Britney. And when her fortune started to clearly drop -- she was reported to have made less money, over less concerts and new cds, -- was while she was married with Federline and having their kids....along with helping to take care of them. I think he should be lucky she even agreed to a 50/50 deal And that she doesn't demand that he start paying her back for the time while they were married and she was paying his way.

I dont think she should have to pay for that loser's legal fees. If he would get a job,quit being a slacker, and stop making all these babies and not taking care of any of them. He is a lame ass opportunist just looking for the next woman to hook up with and make more babies with to not take care of. As for Britney, she needs to pull her head out of her ass, stop partying so much, be a better mother to her kids and get her act together.
