Britney Spears To Pay $100,000 To Ex-Husband
Britney Spears, the 36-year-old “Stronger” singer has been ordered to pay her ex-husband Kevin Federline $110,000 in their ongoing child support battle, according to Jess Cohen of the well known entertainment online platform E!News. The former couple, who tied the knot in 2004 and split in late 2006, share two sons together, Jayden James, 11, and Sean Preston, 12. The documents state that $100,000 will go toward Federline’s legal “costs and fees,” with the remainder of the money given to Benchmark Resolution Group.
Back in February, according to E!News, Federline hired celebrity divorce lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan in hopes of revisiting their child support order.
According to court documents obtained by E! News at the time, Federline had been receiving $20,000 per month in child support payments, the same amount he had been receiving since 2008. Then in May, Federline filed legal documents requesting a change in his child support agreement with Britney Spears and requested for her to cover his attorney’s fees.
In court documents, Federline stated that his income has decreased significantly since the last time their agreement was modified. He also estimated his income at $3,000 a month, “less than 1 percent” of estimated income of Britney Spears. Federline went on to say in the documents that because he’s less of a “name” now compared to years earlier, his income has been negatively affected. Federline stated that he cannot provide a similar lifestyle for their two kids as Britney Spears can, and as a result, he is requesting more child support “to provide some sort of remote parity between the lifestyles.”
Earlier this month, E! News obtained court documents ahead of conservator-ship hearing of Britney Spears which revealed the she’s worth $56 million. The documents also revealed that Spears spends money at shops like Target, Old Navy, Macy’s and TJ Maxx. And in addition to paying her legal team, Spears spends money on a full-time bodyguard and home maintenance.
