The Cost Of Britney's Marriage? Not Priceless

Could K-Fed have blown through $50 million dollars of Brit's fortune in just two years? At the time of her marriage to FedEx, Britney was estimated to be worth $100 million, but according to recent reports her net worth has fallen to between $35-$50 million, so you do the math.

So what'd you spend it on, Kev? It's obvious that he didn't spend the money on clothes. In a skit on last night's Saturday Night Live, Britney went to her divorce lawyer to complain about how FedEx squandered her money by filling their dining room with baby tigers and renting an amusement park for his friends to chill at. She also suggests in the skit that K-Fed was unfaithful: "Brit" says that K-Fed was doing choreography with Alyssa Milano and a week later, "Guess who's got panty crickets? Me."

Luckily for Brit, the party stops here with an airtight prenup. "Everyone thinks that Britney is this hick from Louisiana but, in reality, she is an extraordinarily astute businesswoman who has built herself into a global brand," a source tells the New York Post. Too bad the pop princess wasn't as astute when she picked her husband.

Denise Pays A Price For Laptop Hurl

It looks like Denise Richards is off the hook, but she'll be paying for her computer-throwing fit. The photographers, Denise and her management company have agreed to settle the matter civilly, according to the Canadian police.

Richards tells People that the incident was a "big mistake," and although she admits that she threw a computer-not two-she says it did not hit an elderly woman in a wheelchair. That leads TMZ to ask, did she know who was below before she hurled the laptop, and are healthier people fair game for her reckless ways?
