Britney won’t take this lying down.
Britney is not going to take this lying down.
The princess of pop worked hard to get life back on track, but ex-husband Kevin Federline wants some of the credit for that.
According to a source via Us Weekly, K-Fed wants an increase in child support from the $20,000 per month he currently receives “to recognize the sacrifices he’s made,” says an insider. “He could have threatened to cut off access to the kids, but has not.” That’s dark and terrible.
Britney’s Piece Of Me residency raked in more than $137 million, and he wants a piece of the pie.
A previous report claimed Kevin’s longtime attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, sent a letter to Britney’s legal team detailing why Kevin should get more than the $20K monthly payment he currently receives. It probably looked something like blah blah blah words words words.
Us supposedly spoke with a source close to the situation and says Britney is “angry Kevin is asking for more money because she pays for everything.” They add their relationship is “strained.”
“Kevin has always allowed for very liberal visitation,” says their insider, who adds it’s currently 50/50. “He has been supportive of her recovery. Yes, she has her career, but her job as their mom is the most important role in her life. Kevin thinks her success is in part because the boys have been in her life.”
Obviously Britney is in a better place because her sons are in her life. WHO would be in a better place in life without their loved ones? Is that really his train of thought? Don’t answer that.
No matter – Britney’s not buying it. The insider spilt some tea claiming the Glory singer feels like K-Fed just wants more money to pay for all five of his children, not just the two they share together.
“[She] feels as if she is paying for them also,” the insider says. “His rapping and DJ’ing don’t pay the bills. [Dad] Jamie isn’t going to meet an outrageous demand. He knows how important the kids are to Britney and won’t allow her to lose them. Jamie has assured her this won’t become an issue.”
