Britney Expected 50/50 Custody By December




Britney Spears is getting more time with her kids. Kevin Federline is getting more money.

That's the takeaway from the settlement agreement reached between the former fun couple, E! News has learned.

Attorneys for the ex-Chaotic tandem were due in court this afternoon for a second straight day of discussions in the custody battle over sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.

But at the last minute the hearing was scrapped and the respective lawyers were dispatched to the courthouse to file the paperwork.

"The hearing has been called off," a spokesman for Los Angeles Superior Court tells E! News. "A settlement has been reached."

According to a source close to Spears and familiar with the deal, the 26-year-old singer will be getting increased time with her boys.

The only thing requested in the settlement by Federline, 30, was "more money for him and his attorney," the insider says.

The deal means the ex-spouses won't be headed to a court showdown. A trial in the tug-of-war case had been scheduled for next month.

Spears is well on her way to regaining joint custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James, which she lost following her January meltdown.

"By the end December she will effectively be getting 50-50 time with her boys based on her improvement," the Spears source says.
