Kevin Federline

I Didn't Trash That Mansion

... Golfballs Did!

8/5/2012 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804_kevin_federline_tmzKevin Federline is using the oldest excuse in the book ... claiming it was FLYING GOLF BALLS that destroyed the Tarzana, CA mansion he rented and NOT HIM.

TMZ broke the story ... Federleezy is being sued by his former landlord -- a guy named Joseph Malek --  for more than $110k in damages to a mansion he rented back in 2008 ... Malek claimed Federline trashed the place to all hell and then screwed him out of rent money.

According to legal docs, Federline claims the allegations are BS, saying "damages to the home were actually due to normal wear and tear, and other damages were caused by GOLF BALLS hitting the property."

Not only that, KFed claims he struck an oral deal with Malek back in 2009 in which he coughed up $60,000 to cover any missing back-rent and agreed to let his former landlord keep his entire security deposit.

In the docs, Kevin says that the 2009 deal "acts as full satisfaction and discharge of these disputes."

KFed is seeking recovery of his attorney fees, statutory damages and twice the amount of his security deposit.

A judge has yet to rule.

Trailer trash trashing a house doesn't really surprise me. Wonder if he kept a car on cinder blocks on his front lawn.

Anyone else starting to believe in enforced sterilization?

This is an old recycled story, TMZ!
The damage doesn't look that bad - not $110,000 worth - unless there's something we're not seeing.

I wonder what the cost of removing the bird's nest from the porch light was..... and emptying an ash tray.... ridiculous!

Not surprised, Kevin's a good dad, kids are healthy and happy, and he's an all around decent kinda dude.
Photos show bad workmanship more than anything, things falling apart that weren't put together right with inferior materials.
$60...,000 is more than enough to cover damages, most of which aren't from him either way.

Exactly how many golfballs were there, and were ALL of them smoking? Ugh

If that's the way Kevin Fererline wants it then his ex-landlord should be able to say "I didn't damage Mr. Federline. My baseball bat did."

I suppose the golf balls left the 68,000 cigarette butts too? Ever heard of an ash tray? Even a metal bucket filled with sand would be better than using every available surface as an ashtray. It's disgusting how he left the place. He seems like the kind of person who would trash where ever he lives, whether it's a double wide or a mansion because he is a pig. I'm sure the inside is a s*** hole too.

kim is a publicity whore    

He doesn't need a mansion. Sucks that Brit has to pay him child support. Hopefully he pays from his own pockets, karma's a bitch for leeching off of Britney

Actually Britney's very fortunate that Kevin is who he is and that he was there to raise their kids when she suffered some issues.
Child support to Kevin is the best investment she's ever made, an investment in her kids, and now that she's past some of the issues she's more involved and able to be there for her kids...kids who are happy and healthy enough to respond to her positively when she's mothering and involved...thanks to Kevin being Dad and bringing them up to that point.
