K-Fed gets $13 million, joint custody; Boys don’t recognize mom Britney

I’m kind of confused over the Britney Spears and Kevin Federline divorce settlement now. I reported that it would cost her $17 million according to In Touch, but then TMZ was touting her iron-clad prenup and claiming K-Fed would only get a measly million, which US Weekly disputed.

Now MSNBC’s The Scoop is saying that K-Fed is going to make out better than expected with $13 million and custody of the boys four out of seven days of the week. They also say that Britney and Kevin had some good-natured jabs at each other while hashing out their settlement and that Britney called Kevin her “biggest mistake.” This seems to have come after K-Fed shot her down when she asked him if he really wanted to go through with the divorce. They also say that K-Fed was playing Britney by making it seem like they would get back together to try to give her incentive to finish rehab:

“Do you really want to do this?” Spears asked K-Fed as the two met to discuss final details of their divorce, reports to the upcoming issue of the tab.

K-Fed said yes, and his estranged wife replied, “You’re the biggest mistake I’ve ever made, but thank you for my babies.”

Then the two puffed on cigarettes for a 15-minute smoking break, then hashed out the financial terms of their split, according to Star.

The tabloid also claims that Federline led Spears to believe that the two would get together after she got out of rehab so because he wanted to encourage her to stay in the treatment center.

Among the details, according to the tab:

  • A 2004 pre-nup called for K-Fed to get $250,000 for each year of their marriage, but Spears upped that figure to $500,000 to speed up the negotiations.
  • He receives half the proceeds from their Malibu mansion, which is on the market for $13.5 million.
  • $25,000 a month in child support for each of the couple’s two children until they reach 18. He also gets custody of the boys four days a week.
  • Federline gets to keep all the gifts Spears bought them during their marriage.
  • He’s forbidden from writing a tell-all about their marriage.
  • 25k a month in child support is more than Diddy shells out for two of his kids, but then K-Fed is going to get the boys for most of the week. It looks like Britney’s public freak out did cost her something.

    There are stories in this week’s Enquirer and Star magazines that Britney’s boys didn’t recognize their bald mom and that they seemed scared of her when she returned after a month away at rehab:

    When Britney was reunited with [her boys], her heart was shattered.

    She didn’t put on a wig to cover the hair she’d shaved off in a headline-making emotional break-down – and Sean looked frightened.

    “He wouldn’t stay in her lap,” revealed a source.

    “I think Sean was scared of her and wanted his Dad. It was as if the kids didn’t recognize her!

    “Britney started crying and told Kevin: ‘I am ugly and Sean hates me.’

    “It was her worst nightmare come true…

    “After her first visit with the boys, Kevin was upset that Britney freaked out. So for the second visit, he sent the kids with a bodyguard and nanny to Britney’s place.

    “But Britney says that Sean cried when she tried to hold him. And when she tried to talk to Jayden, he started crying and made a sad face.”

    [From The National Enquirer print edition, April 9, 2007]

    That’s sad for Britney and all, but given how much we’ve seen her out since she got out of rehab it’s not like she’s trying to make it up to her kids for being away. Considering how much she’s worth, that settlement seems fair. To a guy like K-Fed it must be like winning the lottery.

    Britney met with agents at the William Morris agency yesterday. They say she has no goal for her career, but is full of scattered ideas.

      That’s so wrong.
      That he should get that much money, I mean. What entitles him to part of her fortune? If that’s in favor of the children, then the CHILDREN should recieve it, not him.
      What’s worse, is that this means we’ll have to put up with seeing him basically forever now; I SO could do without it.
      It’s really upsetting because you know K-Fed was eager to get his hands on her money considering how he left a poorer girl and basically vaporized money within seconds of being allowed near it; it’s a huge crapper a weasel can actually win at that game.
      It’s just hideous regardless of who does this kind of crap or why.
      But thanks for teaching us all about the importance of a PRE-NUP man!!

      I’ve seen kids react that way when their mom gets a drastic haircut or dye job and she’s only been gone long enough to get it done. There’s nothing unusual about that. Wearing glasses for the first time can do it too.

    3. Sorceressss says:

      Just how much money does this train wreck have???? She hasn’t worked or put out anything in years, all she seems to do is spend money like it’s nothing. I just don’t understand how she can still have so much….

    4. Iva says:

      These are very young children and as any of us know, the first and second years are a critical bonding process. I can only imagine what these boys experienced during her meltdown. It’s no wonder they are afraid and I’m sure it has nothing to do with her shaving her head. These boys absolutely had NO stability and were left alone night after night while she partied and got her groove on.

      How many nights did she go out and stay out and we all know she slept during the day in different cities and hotel rooms – this is not Mother material and it doesn’t promote bonding with one’s children.

      It appears now that Kevin has them they finally have some stability in their lives. Take a look and it appears that Britney is still focussing on herself and her public image versus trying to rebuild her relationship with her sons.

    5. gg says:

      I think they’ve BOTH demonstrated that neither is fit to be a parent, frankly. I don’t see any proof of Fed providing stability for anybody.

      Here’s what I don’t understand…I’ve noticed that all across the country we have skilled professionals that on a daily basis place abused and neglected DOGS in better homes than what they were previously exposed to. Then I see the emotional neglect and abuse that is without a doubt present in the lives of certain celebrity children (think WHitney Houston, Kate Moss, and Britney Spears) and, excuse my french, but I have to ask myself “Where the Fuck is the California Dept. of Children’s Services when you need them? Sad…

      She is totally right!She is UGLY and her son already hates her for being such a bad mother!

      Wow, I never knew that K-fed was such an enterprising business man. Lets face it, Britney is history and I see ANS scenario sooner than later. Unless of course she joins scientology and gives away all her money to the cult, or visits Cambodia for a year.

    9. Busy body says:

      If we adults were scared of her look (she reminded me of some one from one of those scary movies)imagine the poor little tykes. Her round head is not easy on the eye nor is it for the faint hearted.

    10. moesha was a sucky show says:

      a lot of times, when a kid falls..they dont cry..but if someone like their mom shows how scared they were by the near mishap..the kid gets scared and cries.
      i bet that britney was probably very emotional, fragile and not quite herself when she visited her children, and being that children are extrordinarily sensitive…they picked up on her fear and cried. they know that she is their mom.
      not to say that kids who have gone through this trauma have any sense of what a real mom and dad are.

      these two are a mess. kfed should have his divorce settlement put into a trust until he is about 40…when maybe he grows up.

    11. Me, Myself, and I says:

      So..basicly k-fed is the highest paid nanny right now. And shes only going to be part of there lives for the minimum time requirement to be considered they’re “mother”. I personally think shes too caught up in her fading career to care about her kids they way they need her. I couldn’t imagine putting myself first like that before my children. But honestly, which of them is the lesser of two evils?
