New Britney Document Not What It Seems

9/14/2007 4:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has just obtained a curious item in the Britney/K-Fed divorce war....but it's not what it seems.
Britney court docs
We've gotten hold of a document that discusses K-Fed's right to spousal support. It says Britney shall pay her ex "the sum of $20,000 per month, payable on the first (1st) day of each month, commencing on November 1, 2006, and continuing thereafter until death of either party, remarriage of Respondent (Kevin) or further order of the court..."

As we first reported, K-Fed signed a prenup which cut off his $20K support after November, 2007. The order we just obtained was signed by the judge -- today.

It appears from the document that Britney may have agreed to ante up money indefinitely, but we've learned that's not the case. Sources say the pre-nup is still in effect and the document was filed for technical tax reasons. So K-Fed gets cut off in two months.

WOW! Twenty thousand dollars from November 2007 until the DEATH of either of them.

Hey, K-Fed, you better hurry up and sign on the dotted line, Britney is headed down the same path as Anna Nicole. Your time is running out!

What's wrong with her face in this picture?    

Some of you don't seem to know how to read or are so bigoted for how you feel about Kevin that you go off .........

The pre-nup was for $20K per month through November 2007.

The kids have NOTHING to do with this! This occured prior to the marriage and children. "Pre" nuptial (marriage).

Brittany does not seem to be a fit Mom. You haven't seen Kevin coming away from this with a tell all book for money, have you? I can't say that too many ex-spouses with as much ammo as Brittany "continues" to give keep quiet. I've actually been impressed with him ......... far more than I thought I ever would be.

Now....... do I think he should get a regular job ~ yes. That's just me. If we were receiving $20K per month and had become accustomed to a certain life style ...... who's to say that we would be hitting the pavement looking for a job.

If that girl is as looney in person as she appears to the public .... I feel sorry for this guy. (I never dreamed that I would say THAT!)

My prayers are with these poor children. Brittany needs to get mental help SOOOOOOOOOON before the kids are taken away for good or perhaps that would be best. They deserve a chance at normalcy.

Hope, I agree with your comments except one thing, "commence" actually means to begin. In other words, his payments begin in November 2007, not end.

But I agree, he has been the better looking party for quite some time now, which is good, because someone will have to care for the kids when she self destructs permanently.

I'm trying to be nice. I don't think that Britney is a terrible mother, just young and inexperienced. Federline, on the other hand, is known as a breeder of children. He is unable to support any of his children.. These kids have NO monetary support from their jobless father! I believe that Federline and Shar thought that they would have luxurious life-styles, living off of Britney. Thank God for the prenup. Kevin may actually have to get a real job. We know he can't sing - perhaps he could get a job w/Chippendale's. Oh, no, who in their right mind would want to see him naked? Welcome to Taco Bell, may I take your order? Kevin is not a real man - real men take care of their little ones.

technical tax reasons = baloney

That's like admitting they filed it to defraud the IRS. There'd be some MAJOR problems with that!!!! She totally is trying to paying him off.. but when you make $800k a month, $20k seem like a drop in the bucket.

Blah blah blah    

The only reason Federsleez looks better than Britney is that the press does not follow him around day in and day out. If he were to be followed as much as Britney I'm sure it would be a toss up as to who is the "better" parent. He is every womans worse nightmare, Shar included. I bet she thought she would be on easy street when he started this custody battle.

Kevin Feeble-mind is a scheming, selfish, talentless, stinky looking scrub who deserves nothing! Dare we forget that he left his PREGNANT GIRLFRIEND (Shar) to chase money (Brit)?!!?! All this bullsh*t about how he is "stepping up" for his kids! Come on! You know he is being strung along by his lawyers on how to get on Brit's permanent payroll! If he is such a loving father, could someone please explain how he just dumped Shar's kids aside?

Does anyone remember what drove Brit crazy? - Feeble-minds lying, pot smoking, staying out all night, cheating, etc, assh*le ways!

Please BRIT! Get over your postpartum, bi-polar, insecurity issues and bring it to us hard! You know your fans and even those who aren't your fans are waiting for you to come out on top! PLEASE make the critics and your backstabbers eat their words! THIS WILL BE A SWEET REVENGE!

Britney's Lawyer    

$20,000 a month is nothing for Brit.

She makes over $750,000 a MONTH in royalities and publishing from her albums. And that money comes in every month, month after month, year after year. She gets paid everytime anytime a radio station or public facility plays any of her songs.

Brit has sold over 50 million albums. She sells nearly 1 million albums a year doing nothing. Someone somewhere buys her albums everyday. In fact, she'll sell more albums than Kayne West will just sittting on her ass.

If she goes out on tour & depending on hard she wants to work, she could clear $75 million - easy. On his last tour, Prince cleared $90 million. Madonna has cleared over $300 million from touring and Celine Dion made $100 million playing Vegas. U2 has grossed over $1 billion.

$20,000 a month is chump change. $20K/month for the rest of his life is less than Leona Hemsley left her dog. K-Fed needs a new lawyer.

Shouldn't have chased after a pregnant womans man? Like they say about Britney, no one made her spread her legs, no one made him whip it out.

What on earth is wrong with most of the understanding about what was written? Income is what you tax not expense. If Brit pays money to someone it is considered expense to her and she will gain a tax incentive because it will be spousal, or child care expense and will be a tax deduction on her federal taxes. There are tax levels and the more income you make the higher your tax bill and the more deductions you can find, deductions are legitimate expenses that you have paid to someone for something that can be considered a tax deduction- like the child care tax deduction or the alimony tax deduction. Either/or Brit will pay the money to K-Fed and deduct it from her bill to Uncle Sam or IRS. Read the last twosentences of the story PLEASE!!!!!!! Brit will claim the money as a tax deduction for 2007 and she will declare it as a tax deduction and write it off her 2007 income. She may want to continue to pay him this amount or even more if the expense lowers the amount of taxes she has to pay to IRS. It will keep him happy with her and it is money she will either spend on taxes or to her former husband......Either way, she will owe the money to someone because of how high her income is and without large tax deductions she will pay it to someone, it might as well be to someone that she can keep happy and help keep her kids. Get my point?
