Britney Spears Has To Give Kevin Federline More Child Support, And She's Not Happy

A little more than six months ago, Kevin Federline, i.e.K-Fed, made his way back into the news. And, of course, it dealt with his relationship (or, perhaps, lack thereof) to Britney Spears since their much-publicized fallout. The former hubby of the famous pop singer is perhaps best known for his tumultuous marriage to the musician, although they called it quits more than ten years ago in 2007. But he's back at it again, and this time K-Fed was granted more child support from the more famous person in their past relationship. Spears reportedly isn't happy about it either.

As it was reported by E! News, Kevin Federline was successful in receiving more child support from Britney Spears, and Spears is definitely unhappy about that achievement. As it was revealed earlier this year, Federline claimed he needed more child support in order to raise their two children, 12-year-old Sean and 11-year-old Jayden Federline. The Spears family was skeptical about why Federline needed more money, reportedly believing that it was actually his way of trying to earn more money from the world-known singer to help raise his other children in addition to the kids they share. The ex-couple went to court about the matter, and to the surprise of some, Federline was apparently the one who ended up successful in this court case.

Well, as you can imagine, Britney Spears isn't the least bit pleased about the verdict. Through this case, Spears has ultimately agreed to give Kevin Federline "thousands more a month in child support," which is news that arrives a mere month after it was decided that Spears was going to pay the dancer-turned-DJ a whopping $110,000 for their continued child support battle. Evidently, Federline seems to be pleased about this newest decision.

But as it was reported by a source close to Britney Spears and her family, the settlement is considered "ludicrous" and they are definitely unpleased. But the agreement was made by Spears' team not merely because they believed Kevin Federline was due to receive more compensation. Rather, Spears wanted to put this whole thing behind them and move on. And that's certainly understandable-- nobody wants to drag this whole thing out. There's a chance even Federline wanted to call it quits. But now it's settled, even if everyone isn't pleased by the news, and now it's time to move on.

In addition to Britney Spears, Jamie Spears was also involved in this case, as he was the one who is looking out for his daughter's finances. There was a point early on in the proceedings where he requested Kevin Federline turn in his 2017 tax returns, to figure out what was happening with the money and where it was being appropriated. There were clearly a good few disagreements about the cash and what Federline was owned in the arrangement.
