If this story needed a soundtrack, it might be Everytime by Britney Spears played on repeat. Because every time Kevin Federline tries to get some more money, he gets a dial tone, or in this most recent instance, a helpful list of how he can get the most bang for his monthly child support bucks.
We know that K-Fed wants more than the $20,000 a month he gets for each of his boys, Jaden and Preston, and Team Britney doesn’t think he deserves it. Eventually Jamie Spears got involved, and he wasn’t feeling his former son-in-law’s request. K-Fed’s main argument was that the little critters were getting older and were bound to notice that mommy lives a life of expensive luxury while daddy doesn’t.
According to The Blast, both sides recently sat down to discuss K-Fed asking for double what he’s getting now. He wants $40,000 a month up from $20,000 a month. Team Britney reportedly came back with a counter-offer in the form of zero extra dollars. Sources tell The Blast that after the meeting, Team Britney forwarded a letter to K-Fed’s attorney, outlining how his current $20,000 child support check could be spent. K-Fed was reportedly “insulted” at the suggestion.
Adding insult to injury, Britney’s team also allegedly threatened to audit K-Fed to see where his money was being spent. K-Fed’s lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan shut that down by informing Team Britney that an audit might show she actually owes millions in back payments. Team K-Fed also requested an income and expense declaration from Britney to see how much she’s making. Legally, she’s got 30 days to provide that.
Phew, that was a close call! Despite being what appears to be a legitimately decent dad, I just don’t ever see an audit ending well for Kevin. “Uh, that $3000 a month expense listed as ‘TB’ represents toys and books, and definitely not Taco Bell. Yo, this audit doesn’t involve going through my trash bins, right?”
