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.

Of course its about the money - if he is so concerned about being a good father, where was he for his first 2 kids - I guess Shar Jackson didnt make enough for him to fight for his kids. Britany on the other hand was a perfect opportunity. I think If she is going through difficult times her mother should take the kids for the sake of the kids - at this time she is the ONLY one with their best interest at heart.

Those poor kids. Who would have thought that Kevin would suddenly be "Father of the Year". In about 10 years we'll see these poor kids on E True Hollywood Stories.

Janice, you have no idea what proof he has. Lawyers don't go to court to lose. I seriously doubt they wouldn't be going to court unless they had more than magazine articles. Also, if ali had nothing to hide why would she be worried about getting served?

Funny how Britney fans say not to believe everything you read but when it's something bad against Kevin they believe it as the truth.

I think Britney is the perfect mother and is wonderful. I don't believe any of these stories about her including the bizarre head shaving incident and the nude hot tub party.

You can do miracles with photo shop these days. I beleive Britney is at home with her kids every night.

I agree Janice, lets let the courts decide. We don't know what will get into evidence, but I know that I've most recently seen her nearly drop her own baby out of her hands, only to be caught by her security. I've also seen her privates, a recent romp in the ocean in her panties. There's also a recent hit & run that will be coming up again.
Maybe she wins, who knows, but certainly she has lots to answer for. God only knows what other 'dirt' he's got on her that he hasn't revealed yet, but her mental stability seems to be falling by the waist side & I imagine any court appearance by her being about as successful as her latest 'come back' performances.

Oh my goodness. We do not know these people- either of them and yet we are ready to crucify them and take away their children. Lets get some perspective here. How do we know what kind of parent either of them are? Let the courts figure it out and child welfare if that is needed. I would hate to live under the microscope like these people are. No one knows what goes on behind closed doors. I know that they both put themselves in public position- but that does not mean we get to judge and critique every aspect of their lives. So you take the children away- what do you do with them and is that REALLY what is in their best interest. This is very serious stuff here people - lets get some perspective. We only know what the media tells us and do we really want to rely on this untrustworthy, incomplete and sometimes innacurate information. Give the a break and let the system work this out. I am in no way shape or form a Britney or Kevin fan- nor am I a HATER. But- I am interested in the best interest of the children.

#50- i hope you're being sarcastic. either that you're an idiot.
and i say good for you k-fed! someone needs to teach her a freaking lesson. take her kids away AND her money. after all, what good IS she? to anyone? she's good for nothing. she's certainly not a good mother nor can she sing or dance. sing? please. not even when she was sane could she sing. she's nothing but a spoilt brat; this is karma for being such a selfish horrid person. take those kids before they drown in the bathtub (if indeed she gives them baths). when is she gonna kill herself already

Is this really shocking news? I was hoping that maybe Fed-X was stepping up for the kids, but it looks like he is only interested in the money. I feel really bad for thos kids. But I'm so totally not surprized.

His nanny????
What does K-Fed need a nanny for? The guy does not work.
Those kids also need to be checked out by a pediatrician, have their teeth checked, and blood work done for sugar levels.

I don't feel sorry for either one of these flakes. They made thier bed and sadly two innocent children will have to endure a life of misery because thier parents are idiots. Britney's nuts, K-fed played her like a fiddle and now she's gonna pay for it.. He never wanted anything to do with these kids when they were married and living together, he was too busy with his home boys in Vegas. He profited from that trashy girl and knew exactly what he was doing from day one. So many people told her but she never listens to anyone. Her Father was really unhappy at their wedding, it was very apparent. When Kevin finally gets what he wants he'll show his true colors again and those kids will be ignored by him again.

Hey Janice....we get it..you are all wrapped up in this and you haven't taken you meds yet today.

On the one hand you say "Were do you people come off saying she is a unfit mother? Because you read in it in you're 99 cent tabloid? Like the article says " GOOD LUCK GETTING THAT IN AS EVIDENCE"
OTHER THEN THAT HE HAS NO PROOF...

and on the other hand you say.."Do yourself a favor Brittnay, stay out of trouble and Why don't you stay at home for a while.

WTF!! why would you tell her to stay out of trouble and stay home WTF!!

Take your meds and pick side, Janice
