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.

"...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."

Oh, please. A "source connected with Allie". Of course they're going say that stuff trying to throw the heat off of Britney in yet another effort to make her look like a poor victim. I'm sure this "source" also thinks Brit is an awesome mother.

What I'm hearing is that K-Fed's lawyer is doing standard stuff. Not to mention, I find it very hard to believe his lawyer would try and submit magazine/tabloid articles without having witnesses to back them up. He just cannot be that foolish.

Allie and her friends were incredibly rude to the process server. The guy is just doing his job. Oh, and Allie, process servers serve people anytime, day or night. It does not make a bit of difference as long as the person is served.

Also, Allie, you cannot avoid being served just by not touching the paper.

First off, Brittany was kevin cash cow anyway! She should have seen it before she even laid down with his broke a**, and she should have known he wasn't a good father either! (Girl the D*** must had you stuck on stupid) Girl, be strong and stop showing him that your weak! Because if you don't get it together your going be like that 50 cents song and he'll be taking you "Straight to the bank" until your a** is broke! And it's really not worth any of this media coverage!

You have the "adults" who divorce and put the kids first, like Bruce Willis and Will Smith and then you have the immature, 15 minutes of fame parents who are children themselves!!

As much as you hate Britney because you don't think she deserves her fame and money, Kevin is not your sweetheart either. It's always about money. The guy wants money. Isn't it obvious?

"FED has given this piece of work more then enough time to get her chit together" Who drove her into a crazy bitch in the first place? Her ego is big. Life was perfect for her before K-Fed and she just can't deal she was used by Kevin.

Spears is a dolt. She threw away her "career", She's a laughing stock among the truly talented people in the industry, She is about to be knocked down a few dozen pegs, and her "interest" in her children is shown in nightly jaunts. Unless the kids sleep until noon, they aren't exposed much to her, at all. In some ways...they ARE lucky.

I think the reason why fed ex is going after britney is because the court order money that judge gave him at the time of the divorce it is running out so he want more, this man don't love these kids he just want this girl money, they should give custody of the kids to their grandmother.

I think you will find that all of thesee "sources" are from Britney's camp and they are smearing KFed. I do believe those two little boys would be much happier, healthier, and safer if they spent most of their time at the father's. He doesn't take themout to see fights with the paparazzi every single day like their Mom does, he has ananny who actually feeds those kids good healthy food instead of soda pop in their bottles and doritos for dinner, and he has a stable home environment where the people around the kids don't change every 16 hours because Brit can't or won't keep people around who the kids can actually form relationships with. I think Brit is going over the edge and KFed is just trying to keep the boys from having to witness it or be part of it. So get off his back. At least he lets their Grandmother spend time with them!

Bruce Willis and Will Smith weren't and aren't (respectively) married to drugged-out, self-important, career delusional, bitches, - makes a BIG difference.

Enough Brit & K-Fed commentary for now. I'd like to know: does anyone know if Alli Sims is an actual blood relative? She has been called "Britney's cousin and assistant" countless times (even here), but I have never found the source for the claim that she is a cousin. If anyone has a link to a credible source of real information, please post here. TMZ: do you know? Some mainstream outlets (such as People magazine) have begun putting quote marks around the word "cousin" or dropping the word altogether and simply calling her "assistant." I think this is a relative question. If you have info, please come forward. Please don't respond if you're guessing.

First!
Britneys children probably are better off and better cared for than 99% of the rest of the children in USA or the world.
They have nannys and a mother that dont have to work for 10 hours a day anf who can spend time and love on them.
Since she has so much time she can even go out on her own and have nannys take care of the kids sometime. They are only better of not spending all time with her. And since Kevin F has 50% I guess they spend som time with him to?
And what´'s then to stop a young single girl from having a little fun with her friends.

Kevin F left his previous children even before they were born, so his fathely love isn't worth much.
I do not think that Britney have much to worry about in this case. She obviously loves her children and she can provide for them. They are healthy and probaly a little too spoiled.
Fed-ex probably think he can get some financial gain from this because his lawyers have told him so ( they are greedy too) but I see no way the court will judge on hearsay and magazine articles.
Who, knows, Britneys latest "bad girl" antics may just be a way to get publicity (smart girl).
Anyway shes smart enough to stay out of jail unlike the other "bad girls".
Its a shame that Federline spends his childrens money on stupid lawsuits.
He is a drug adict and will remain so, hes soon forgotten and then he has no talent and no job. Maybe he can be friends with Lindsey Lohans Father, thet seem about the same caliber.
