Britney Spears: PISSED Over New Kevin Federline Child Support Agreement!

Back in February, Kevin Federline demanded more child support from Britney Spears.

He argued that the $20,000 he receives each month isn't enough support for the two preteen sons, of whom he shares custody with Britney.

Well, it looks like he's gotten his wish.

Britney Spears Goes Makeup-Free

The Blast reports that Kevin Federline and Britney Spears have reached a new child support agreement.

Apparently Britney will be paying "thousands more a month in child support," the report reveals.

An inside source tells E! that Britney and her team think that the new agreement is giving Britney's ex too much.

"They are not happy," the insider reveals. "And think the settlement is ludicrous."

"But," the source explains. "They wanted to make an agreement so that they could move on."

That makes sense. Any legal battle is tiring, but this is especially true when both sides share children. You want the conflict to end.

Honestly, this is probably the outcome that Federline's team hoped for, because Britney can afford to cave in order to rid herself of a source of stress.

Despite that, Britney is said to be "very unhappy" with this outcome.

She knows, the insider says, that this is "in her best interest."

"She was tired of fighting about it," the source explains. "And is ready to get on with her life and put this behind her."

Britney may be less than thrilled, but Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan is over the moon.

"I am happy that they came around to resolving this matter," Kaplan tells E!

"I am sure that they decided the money would be better extended on child support than on attorney's fees," he says.

"Which," Kaplan continues. "Would've achieved the same result for Kevin but only after months and hundreds of thousands of dollars on litigation."

Kaplan's statement concludes: "They made a wise decision."

Someone close to Federline says that there's a clear winner, and it isn't Britney.

"Kevin is getting more money monthly than what he had originally asked for before he ever filed his RFO," the insider says.

In this source's opinion: "Britney's team would've been better off settling with Kevin at that time because now he got more than what he initially asked for."

"There are more attorney fees that Britney agreed to pay that were folded into the settlement," the insider reasons. "in addition to the $100,000 Mark Kaplan was already rewarded."

We mentioned that Britney was ordered to pay for Federline's attorney's fees just last month.

Britney Spears Looks Flawless

"Kevin is extremely pleased for himself, for the kids and for Britney," the source describes.

"It was the right thing to do on her part," the insider opines. "And it allows the kids to get the benefit of the standard of living both parents can provide for them."

That, at least, is a point with some merit. Sean Preston and Jayden James spend part of the time with their dad and part of the time with their mom.

While $20,000 is more than enough to cover all of the basic needs and most of the wants of two preteen boys for a fraction of each month, that doesn't mean that their lifestyle should plummet when it's their turn with dad, right?

Still, and call us cynical, but it's difficult to see this as anything more than a grab for more money because Britney is loaded and Kevins "DJ career" is somehow failing to take the world by storm.

Britney Spears Ordered to Pay Six Figures to Kevin Federline

Earlier this year, Kevin Federline demanded that Britney Spears give him more child support. He claims that as their two sons grow older, $20,000 per month is no longer enough.

Now, Britney has been ordered to pay out $110,000 to her ex.

And she could be on the hook to pay out much, much more.

Kevin Federline Red Carpet Photo

Of the ordered payout$110,000, $100,000 will go to cover Federline's legal expenses, including services and fees.

$10,000 will be given to Benchmark Resolution Group, court documents reveal.

All things considered, since Federline requested that she pay the costs that he was already anticipating -- including $250,000 in attorney's fees and $100,000 for forensic accounting, this could have been worse.

But this order isn't a resolution to their ongoing disagreement about child support payments.

Britney Spears Looks Flawless

"We tried to see if we could voluntarily come to an agreement on what the increased number of child support would be," Federline's legal team tells E! 

"And," the attorney laments. "In the process for doing that, [Britney's team] came back with several conditions that were not acceptable."

"As a result," Federline's attorney says. "Kevin had to file a formal request that the court determine what the appropriate amount for child support is."

That's generally how disputes about child support payments are settled.

"If the court decides that this should be a reasonable needs order," Federline's attorney shares. "Then we're going to use expert testimony to establish what the reasonable needs are of the minor children."

It should be very interesting to see an itemized list that will explain why two middle school aged boys with no special health issues are so expensive that they cost more than $20,000 per month.

"This was an initial contributive payment," the attorney says of this $110,000 payment that the court ordered.

"If Britney and the conservators continue to fight tooth and nail about turning over any financial information," Federline's attorney threatens. "This will not be the last fee order they're ordered to pay me on Kevin's behalf."

"It's puzzling why they're putting so much energy into fighting the disclosure of her finances," Team Federline says. "But I'm not deterred."

It sounds like Federline's team is going ot look into what Britney spends on her sons, directly and indirectly, and argue that Kevin Federline should get that much.

Federline's team is confident that they will get what they're looking for.

"We will get there eventually," Federline's attorney says. "It's just a question of how much they want to cost themselves creating speed bumps on the road to the ultimate destination."

He sounds very sure of himself. But that's kind of his job.

"The next few hearings," he continues. "They will be reporting to a private settlement judge."

Federline's attorney concludes: "The private judge will help resolve any discovery issues to see whether or not he can get the parties to agree on some interim findings that would avoid all-out, hand-to-hand litigation combat."

Kevin Federline Hosts: Crazy Horse's XXXMAS Party

Obviously, no matter what arguments are made in court, no one should look at Sean Preston or Jayden as somehow demanding more cash. This is a dispute between their parents.

Similarly, it is Federline's attorney's sworn duty to try to squeeze every cent out of Britney that he can. He's just doing his job.

Though many believe that he's hoping for extra cash to support his multiple other children, Federline's argument does make some sense.

We're not sure how the boys getting older somehow costs more than $20,000 a month, especially since Federline does not have them all of the time.

But it is true that both Kevin Federline and Britney Spears are in different financial situations than they were about a decade ago, when the child support arrangements were made.

An updated child support arrangement could cost Britney major cash.

Britney Spears Suffers Nip Slip on Stage, Doesn’t Give AF

Britney Spears is a living legend, a wonderful mother, and an absolute music phenomenon. She is also currently on her Piece of Me Tour.

On Saturday, she suffered a bit of a wardrobe malfunction while on stage. Specifically, it was a nip slip.

An insider close to the tour is dishing on exactly how Britney is reacting to the realization that she was flashing the entire crowd for a couple of minutes.

On June 14, Britney Spears experienced a nip slip -- or rather, her audience did. Neither she nor her dancers seemed to notice for a full two minutes.

Now, a source explains to HollywoodLife that Britney's nip slip was no big deal.

"Britney is so not bothered by wardrobe malfunctions," the insider reveals.

"At this stage in her career," the source continues. "They’re like second nature to her."

She's had a lot of shows and a lot of costumes in 20 years.

"She just rolls with it," the insider explains.

It totally makes sense that Britney is unfazed by the nip slip. Realistically, the naked eye is not going to be able to spot the naked nipple on stage.

"She will," the source admits. "Make sure to use some stronger tape going forward though."

That's smart. Just because you don't freak out about something doesn't mean that you want for it to happen again.

Britney will do this, the insider states, "as she doesn’t want to intentionally flash the audience!"

Of course not!

There's nothing wrong with nipples, but they should only come out to play when you want them to.

There's more than just Britney's life experience that gives her such a calm attitude.

The insider explains, reminding us that "Britney is on stage every night pretty much."

This is a grueling tour. Thankfully, she's in the best shape of her life.

Britney works hard to keep her body like this, and it pays off.

"And," the source continues. "She’s used to changing quickly in and out of outfits backstage."

That is all part of the business.

The insider points out that these costume changes take place "in front of her dancers,"

Her dancers are all professionals -- and plenty of them are changing clothes in these moments, too.

But Britney has grown accustomed to the exposure, the insider dishes, "so being naked doesn’t faze her."

Kind of like how your first no-clothes party in college was probably kind of awkward, but by your fifth you were grumbling about having to wear clothes to and from the party.

Britney is a world-savvy adult "and nip slips aren’t mortifying to her." the source explains.

Not, the insider points out, "like they would be to a lot of other people."

If, say, Taylor Swift were to have a wardrobe malfunction that led to her being partially nude on stage, it would be a huge deal.

Taylor is younger and is very deliberate about how much of her body she is willing to reveal.

Britney's been at this longer and very naturally has become more accustomed to little slip-ups that can happen on stage.

It goes with the territory when you're one of the greatest performers in human history.

Good for Britney for having a healthy sense of perspective!

Britney Spears: My Wonderful Sons Are Bigger Than Me!!

Though some misguided individuals may think that Britney Spears is an awful mother, she's actually one of the best celebrity parents out there. Yes, really.

She treasures her time with her sons, and she's always happy to share that on social media.

Just take a look at how much they've grown already. She says that they're already bigger than she is.

Britney Spears, Sean Preston, and Jayden James at Brunch

Britney Spears captions this photo of her with Jayden James, 11, and Sean Preston, 12.

"Love when we go to our favorite spot on Sundays."

She doesn't identify where that is, and that's totally fine. She and especially her boys are entitled to their privacy.

She follows that with the two hearts emoji and another emoji that depicts a huge, inviting stack of pancakes.

She also heaps compliments onto her growing sons.

"The boys are bigger than me now!!!!!"

Awwww!

(Britney Spears is 5-foot-4, so that's not a difficult achievement; if they are like most boys and end up taller than their father, they should both eventually be over 6 feet)

Britney Spears, Sean Preston, and Jayden James Painting

Britney loves spending quality time with her boys, and in recent weeks, she has been sharing more and more of this.

Though she shares them with ex Kevin Federline, she loves to show her mother-sons activities, including glimpses of the three of them painting serenely outdoors.

"Painting feels so therapeutic to me!"

Painting is about much more than creating art. It's about honing skills. It's about developing an appreciation for visual details and color theory. it's about improving hand-eye coordination.

And yes, it can absolutely be therapeutic.

"Getting to do this with my boys on a beautiful day like this is such a blessing!!!"

Britney has worked hard for the blessings that she has in life. Good for her.

Britney Spears at Home

After sharing another recent adorable video from her home, Britney captioned:

"Nothing makes me happier as a mom than watching these boys grow and smile and laugh!!"

Britney is goodness incarnate.

"They are my world."

Have you ever loved someone so much that you've hired a math tutor to teach you how to do math so that you can help that person?

Because that's how much Britney loves her boys. She wants to help them with her homework.

"And I love days like this when we get to just run around and play together."

Remember, Britney worked to get where she is today. That includes her Vegas residency. She deserves this time with her boys.

And they deserve this time with their mom.

Britney Spears and Sam Asghari, Disneyland

Of course, these days, you can't talk about Britney's boys without talking about Kevin Federline's demands for even more of Britney's money.

He is asking for, and this really defies belief, $60,000 a month in child support.

Per month.

For two children.

Children whom he only sees about half of the time. Which means that he thinks that each child, if we're doing our math correctly, costs $30,000 for 15 days.

Which is $2,000 a day.

While many believe that Kevin Federline is hoping to use this money for himself and for his multiple other children from previous relationships, many also question why he thinks that Britney should have to pay for any of that.

Britney Spears, Sons Sean and Jayden, 2017

Britney has gone out of her way to make sure that she can be the best mother possible for her sons.

They really are the center of her universe, which is right where every parent's child belongs.

She has gone above and beyond to make sure that she does not repeat her own parents' mistakes in raising her.

There's that old video of her asking one of her sons -- when they were both younger -- if he wants to leave a red carpet event, and he says yes, and she has one of her people walk off with him.

She then asks her other son, who is fine with staying, and he stays with her. She lets them be their own people, not just props for her brand.

So when we see photos and videos of Jayden and Sean, Britney is sharing them out of maternal pride.

Wendy Williams to Britney Spears: You’re an Awful Mother!

Has Wendy Williams finally done it, folks?

Has she finally sunk to the lowest point to which a human being can sink?

This is a bold statement, we know.

Wendy on Britney

It seems hard to fathom how Williams could sink any lower than the time she slammed the #MeToo movement.

Or the time she called Kylie Jenner's baby ugly.

Or the time she called Oprah Winfrey fat.

But Williams sat down on her dumb purple chair on Thursday morning and hurled the most personal shade possible at Britney Spears in response to ex-husband Kevin Federline asking for more child support.

As detailed yesterday, Federline is already receiving $20,000 a month from Britney because he often cares for the former couple's two sons.

But he doesn't think this is enough.

Federline now wants $60,000 per month (yes, PER MONTH!) in child support because he says he's less famous now than he was when the stars split and, therefore, in less demand as a DJ.

Britney Spears at Home

Britney is fighting this request because... what the heck, K. Fed? You can't reasonably support two children on $244,000 per year? Which is designated solely for their well-being?!?)

(Yes, Federline has six kids total. But Spears, obviously, is only legally responsible for the two that came out of her womb.)

Most folks rolled their eyes upon reading Federline's demand.

But Wendy Williams is not most people.

"Britney’s got deal after deal on the table and reportedly she’s making 33 million dollars a year and I’m not counting her money and I don’t want to count her money," Williams said to open her critical statement today, addressing the singer and adding:

"Britney, not for nothing, but what kind of woman is not taking care of her own two kids as a full time mother, just asking?"

Wendy W.

Ummm... many kinds of mothers who have gone through a divorce?

We can't claim to know the details of Britney and Kevin's custody agreement, and it's no secret that Britney has battled a few personal demons in the past.

Her dad actually remains in charge of her money as her official conservator.

This arrangement has apparently been working well and, most importantly here, is no one's business at all.

EXCEPT...

"Why is your father still in charge of all your money?" Williams asked in her segment. "Kevin’s in charge of your boys, your father is in charge of your money, what are you in charge of Britney, at 36 years old?"

Her mental health?

So she can be a strong mother to those boys, perhaps?

Britney Red Carpet Pic

"I get it, she’s got her career and the whole bit, but you’re the one who laid down and had two kids, now take care of your kids,” Wendy actually added, in extreme and ridiculous judgment.

(Spears "laid down and had two kids?!?" What is there to even say about someone who talks about other people this way?)

“How about you fight for custody from Kevin?… Very disgusted," continued Williams.

For the record, it's not clear whether Federline really has full custody of Sean Preston, 12, and Jayden James, 11.

But even if he does...WHO CARES?!?

Plenty of dads have custody of their children and Federline is being very well compensated already in this deal.

Britney Spears Goes Makeup-Free

Concluded Williams, sounding like a cruel moron as always:

"I like Britney Spears and I believe people can get better with the proper guidance and doctors and stuff, but that was Kevin Federline who stayed with you when you were attacking cars with umbrellas and shaving your head and going off the rails of life.

"I’m just telling Britney, you want to deny this man, just remember this is the same man who can write the book and tell the stories…

"He’s held your secrets, he’s the sole custody caretaker of your 11 and 12-year old."

Yes. That's it, Brit.

You should pay Federline in exchange for his silence, all these years later.

Wendy Williams continues to be the worst.

Kevin Federline Wants $60,000 Per Month in Child Support from Britney Spears (LOL!)

It's 2018 and Kevin Federline is still in the news.

We just felt a need to state that incredible fact prior to delving into the reason why Kevin Federline is in the news at this current moment.

Britney Red Carpet Pic

In this case, Britney Spears strongly wishes her Z-Lister of an ex-husband were NOT making headlines, considering Federline's attorney had gone on record with a seemingly outragerous demand.

He thinks the singer ought to pay his client more in child support.

Like, A LOT more in child support.

"We gave them ample time and opportunity to settle Kevin’s child support modification increase, and they came back with conditions that are not reasonable,” Federline’s divorce attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, explains to Us Weekly.

He goes on to say that K. Fed tried to handle this legal matter in private, but is now going public to force Britney's hand.

“It’s their position that they don’t have to turn over Britney’s financial information, including tax returns, which is required under the California family code.

"It’s not California celebrity code edition, she has to comply.”

K. Fed as a Dad

(Hey, look, the President of the United States has never turned over his tax returns and...sorry, nevermind. Let's not go there.)

"This is the choice they have made, and they will now have to deal with it," Kaplan adds. "We are still open to try and settling this without judicial intervention."

Federline first asked for a child support increase in February.

Not surprisingly, Spears was not happy to learn about it.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, though, Federline earns “approximately $3,000 per month” as a DJ, which is reportedly less than one percent Spears’ annual income.

So... he wants his ex-wife to fork over more cash because she works harder and is more successful than he is?

That's quite the argument to make.

Britney Spears is a Boss

Federline and Spears were married from 2004 to 2007.

They share sons Sean Preston, 12, and Jayden James, 11.

(Kevin also has a 15-year-old named Kori and a 13-year-old named Kaleb with ex-fiancée Shar Jackson. Oh, and a six-year-old named Jordan and a three-year-old namedPeyton with wife Victoria Prince.

Yes, Kevin Federline has SIX kids.)

With a straight face, he claims in these new documents that he is “simply less of a ‘name’ and less in demand than he was in 2008,” when the child support was determined.

We suppose this is technically true.

Federline is definitely less famous now than he was right after he split from Britney.

But, ummm... was he ever in demand?

Britney and Kevin

“A court hearing will be set, and the parties will engage in financial discovery, which will enable guideline support payment that Kevin should receive,” Kaplan continued to Us Weekly.

“This won’t be difficult for us, Kevin is asking for the reasonable needs of the children to be met, which is at least three times the amount Kevin is currently getting.

"This is based on her earnings which have been publicly reported. We are also asking for attorney’s fees because it didn’t have to come to this."

Here's the kicker, by the way:

Federline currently gets $20,000 per month in child support.

So he's saying that $20,000 per month in child support is not a "reasonable" amount of money with which he can meet the needs of he and Britney's two sons.

He needs $60,000 per month instead, apparently, which prompts the obvious question:

WHAT THE HECK IS HE BUYING THESE KIDS?

Britney Spears: Exercising Herself to Death to Please Sam Asghari?

As you will see in the steamy video below, Britney Spears is keeping fit with the help of her boyfriend, Sam Asghari.

But ... has she become too preoccupied with health and fitness?

A new report claims that Britney is keeping her body in perfect condition because she's afraid of losing her young, hot boyfriend.

Britney spears works out

RadarOnline reports that Britney is consumed with a fitness addiction in an effort to maintain her relationship with Sam Asghari.

The source acknowledges that Britney "looks amazing and she’s got her best body ever."

She sure does and she sure does, respectively. So ... what's the problem?

"But she’s letting her obsession with diet and fitness rule her life to an unhealthy degree."

Sometimes, there can be a slippery slope between healthy habits and a destructive perseveration.

"She’s so self-conscious and can’t go five seconds without talking about cleanses or weight training."

Sam ashgari shirtless photo

The source continues to express concern, saying:

"Even though she looks incredible, she still Photoshops her selfies all the time."

Lots of people touch up their selfies, but it looks like this person is suggesting that it's an obsession.

"It’s as if she’s on a weird mission to constantly look picture perfect."

That also ties in with rumors that Britney got a boob job recently.

"She’s always scrutinizing her reflection in the mirror and sometimes takes 50 photos before she’ll post one to Instagram."

Is that an unhealthy preoccupation or just careful use of social media?

Britney spears is a boss

The source also claims that Britney is projecting her alleged fixation with fitness onto others.

This has reportedly taken the form of her discouraging others from partying and indulging themselves on tour.

More to the point, it sounds like some of her loved ones are concerned that she's denying herself.

"People are happy that Britney is taking care of herself, but now it’s getting in the way of her having fun."

That is a somewhat troubling report.

Sam asghari lifts weights

Is it possible that the source is jumping to conclusions, though?

Britney has always been dedicated to her personal fitness. Her body is part of her brand, and has been since she rose to fame as a teen sex symbol.

It's true that she's older than Sam Asghari, who is 24 years old.

But while he's definitely young and hot, she is not only intensely attractive, but she's Britney Freaking Spears. Despite rumors to the contrary, she has a good head on her shoulders and knows her worth.

Most people take multiple photos before choosing which picture to post on social media.

The fact that Britney posts makeup-free selfies should be enough to show that fears that she's obsessed with looking more perfect than she actually is are probably unfounded.

Britney spears gym selfie

As for her relationship with Sam Asghari, whom she began dating about a year ago, things are looking good for the two of them.

Just last week, Britney brought Sam as her date to the GLAAD Awards.

Social media shows that the two of them share a love of fitness activities, but that doesn't mean that she's depriving herself of joy.

Playing tennis with your boyfriend isn't exactly wallowing in misery.

And neither is dancing, which is what the two of them are doing in this steamy video.

Watch and decide for yourself how Britney is faring:

Britney Spears’ Dad: Kevin Federline is a Broke Loser Who Wants Her Fortune!

Last month, it was revealed that Britney's ex Kevin Federline has asked for more child support. He is the father of both of her amazing sons.

While Britney treasures her children and would do anything for them, a lot of people are wondering how her current, substantial child support payments are falling short.

Which led to Britney's father meeting with Kevin's attorney and demanding to know why Kevin needs more cash.

Britney and Kevin

Reportedly, Britney Spears is pissed that K-Fed is grubbing after more cash.

Really, anyone who's ever had to pay a bill in their life has some questions about a guy who says that $20,000 a month isn't enough to pay for two kids who only live with him sometimes.

Now, it turns out that someone else is mad about it -- her dad.

Jamie (not to be confused with Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney's sister) is Britney's father, and he apparently sat down with Kevin's attorney.

TMZ has details on how that meeting went down, and it does not sound like anybody left the room satisfied.

Britney Spears, Sons Sean and Jayden, 2017

According to TMZ's report, the meeting was set up last week, when Jamie received a letter from K-Fed's attorney, asking for a sit-down, face-to-face meeting to discuss Kevin's request for more child support.

Jamie had apparently already been suspicious of why Kevin might "need" more child support money each month. So it's probably safe to say that he was wary.

It seems that Kevin's attorney told Jamie at this meeting that, since Jayden and Sean Preston are now 11 and 12 respectively, attending to their needs and wants during his time with them had grown more expensive.

(More than $10,000 per month each, apparently)

Kevin Federline Hosts: Crazy Horse's XXXMAS Party

As you might imagine, Jamie then reportedly asked what exactly the boys needed but Kevin currently couldn't afford to give them.

Kevin's attorney apparently couldn't answer, but told Jamie that Kevin wanted to be able to take care of the boys "at Britney's level."

(First of all, nobody is on Britney's level, so jot that down)

Jamie replied that Britney hasn't found that her tween sons are suddenly more expensive to look after, and that she's taking care of them just as she always has.

So ... Jamie wasn't seeing what had really changed.

Britney Spears in Her Favorite Dress

TMZ's sources say that this is when Kevin's lawyer started singing Britney's praises and listing her recent successes.

Britney's Vegas residency has come to an end, and she made bank.

Jamie replied that he didn't see how Britney's success suddenly made her sons more expensive to support.

In fact, he didn't see how that could have any bearing on child support payments. The couple divorced nearly 11 years ago.

Jamie, still suspicious of Kevin's use of the funds, then pointed out that Britney is not responsible for supporting Kevin Federline's other children or other families -- because Sean Preston and Jayden have four half-siblings.

Besides, Britney paid K-Fed $1.3 million when they divorced and paid him spousal support for years. Normally spousal support is intended to help people whose careers were harmed or abandoned for marriage.

It's difficult to argue that Kevin Federline's fame or career was in any way worsened by his marriage to one of the most famous pop stars on the planet.

It's clear from this report that Jamie seems to believe that K-Fed is funneling some of the child support money to unintended purposes, perhaps to himself or to his other children and other families.

And so Jamie apparently believes that any further money would also be misused.

It is possible, however, that Kevin wants to treat his sons, and that he feels increasingly inadequate in the face of their mother, one of the most talented and successful women that the world has ever seen or ever will see.

If it comes down to a court battle rather than a "quiet" settlement, it's likely that Kevin will be asked to account for how that money is spent on his sons.

In turn, Kevin's attorney will likely argue that Britney wasn't actively touring in 2007, and that her newfound success means that the child support agreement should be revisited.

But ... if Kevin can't adequately explain how $20,000 a month for two pre-teens isn't enough, he may find it challenging to be awarded what he wants.

Britney Spears: PISSED at Kevin Federline For Demanding More Child Support!

Our younger readers may not be familiar with the velour track suit come to life that is Kevin Federline, so let us fill you in the saga of the ultimate baby daddy:

Federline married Britney Spears back in 2004, and she's been paying for that mistake ever since.

Britney and Kevin

While the marriage lasted only a couple years, Federline fathered two children with Spears, which means he's pretty much hitched his wagon to her star for life.

(Or at least until little Sean and Jayden turn eighteen.)

And these days, K-Fed - as he was known in the dark days of the early '00s - seems hell-bent on getting the most out of this arrangement.

It seems Federline wants more child support money from Spears, and sources say he's willing to take her to court if he has to.

And according to US Weekly, Brit is downright fuming over her ex's audacity:

“She’s angry Kevin is asking for more money because she pays for everything,” says an insider, who describes Britney and Kevin's relationship as “strained." 

“Those boys are her world. She is an amazing mother.”

Child support beefs amongst rich people are always a little hilarious since it's not like anyone is struggling to pay for groceries here.

It's more like Kevin takes the kids to Disneyland he just pays for admission, while Brit rents out the entire park and has it closed to the public so there are no lines for the rides.

There are numerous reasons why it's tempting to side with Brit, not the least of which is that if it weren't for her financial support, Kevin would probably be popping and locking on a street corner somewhere.

But it's important to remember that their situation is more complex than that of most celebrity exes.

As you may recall, Brit has had her share of problems over the years.

The consequences of Spears' 2007 meltdown are still a daily reality for the singer, who is still, in some ways, under the thumb of her father and financial advisor, Jamie Spears.

There were several times in the past decade when it would have been easy to fight for sole custody of the kids, but K-Fed mostly did right by his ex:

“Kevin has always allowed for very liberal visitation,” says the insider. “He has been supportive of her recovery.”

It may have been quite some time ago, but it's something Brit should probably keep in mind if she plans to square off with Kevin in court.

Kevin Federline: Britney Spears Should Gimme More Child Support

Britney Spears has brought countless gifts in the world. While most of those are in the form of her music, she also gave birth to her sons, Sean Preston Federline and Jayden James Federline.

And while their mother is one of the most famous and talented people on the planet, at the moment, it's their father who's making waves.

According to this report, Kevin Federline is attempting to get more child support money out of Britney.

Britney Spears is an absolute legend who walks among us.

While we can all take a moment each day to be thankful that, of all of the years of human history, we were lucky enough to live in the same time period as Britney Spears, the vast majority were not actually married to her.

But Kevin Federline was, from 2004 until 2007.

Though their union was clearly not meant to last, they'll forever be linked by their precious sons -- Sean Preston and Jayden James.

And, of course, by the accompanying child support payments.

Britney and Kevin

As one can imagine, it's Britney who pays Kevin and not the other way around.

Apparently, she currently sends baby daddy Kevin $20,000 per month for child-support.

For normal people, that's a huge amount of money. Even if Sean Preston and Jayden spent every single day with their father, and they do not, it's unlikely that the two of them would be costing $666 dollars every single day.

(Of course, for celebrities, there are concerns like security and often private schools and transportation, so we can see how the added expenses add up ... even to nearly a quarter of a million dollars per year)

However, that payout was determined a decade ago, when the couple split. At the time, Britney was dealing with personal mental health issues and wasn't really performing full-time.

Compare that and how her finances must have looked to now, when she just finished her Vegas residency and is about to go on tour.

And now a report from The Blast claims that Kevin Federline is requesting more money in the form of child support.

Apparently, an attorney acting on Kevin's behalf filed papers to that effect.

Though there's no actual mention of how much money he's looking for, he wants, well, more.

In part, people may assume that this is a money-grab.

At the same time, child support is determined in part, not just by how much time the children spend with each parent, but also based upon a percentage of the parent's income.

Considering that Britney reportedly made something in the neighborhood of $15 million per year during her Vegas residency (and nearly twice what she pays Kevin Federline annually at each individual show), some would say that Kevin Federline is due for an upgrade.

Apparently, he's not looking for a nasty public battle or even a drawn out one.

And it's possible that, if his requests are reasonable, he'll get what he's asking for.

Britney Spears famously adores her sons.

Years ago, she knew that she didn't want to repeat the mistakes that her own parents made, and resolved to be the best possible mother to her boys.

(She took match classes herself so that she could help her sons with their homework -- most parents would have just hired a tutor for the boys)

Britney is a woman with one of the most powerful social media platforms on the planet.

Do you know what she uses it for? Often, to praise her sons. Recently, she's been showcasing their Dragon Ball Z art and praising their technique.

(They're genuinely skilled young artists who are really getting the hang of things like perspective)

It wouldn't be surprising if Kevin Federline gets what he's asking for, largely because it could mean that her sons can live in more opulence when they're spending time with their father.

But we'll see how all of this pans out. There could be a lot going on that isn't public knowledge.

Yet.

24 Celebrity Weddings That No One Saw Coming

Not all celebrity couples make like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. In other words, some got married very much on the Down Low.

So low down, in fact, that we didn't even know they were planning on getting hitched until the big day had already come and gone!

Some of these surprise celebrity marriages may even last, too, although in some cases, more forethought may have been prudent ...

Britney Spears Lip Syncs New Year’s Eve Concert, Gets Roasted On Twitter

It's 2018, and Britney Spears still has a career.

If you'd made that prediction eleven years ago at the peak of Bald Britney-mania, you would've been shunned from society and forced to spend your remaining days in the mountains, shearing alpacas, or something.

Britney Spears in LA

Yes, the simple fact that Britney is alive, healthy, and continuing to make millions is downright remarkable.

Still, there are those who expect more from her.

They're not satisfied by the fact that Brit has full custody of her kids and is no longer under the sway of either a psychiatric hold or the wizard-like manipulator the neighborhood children called the Federline.

These people see fit to criticize the divine Ms. Spears for such minor offenses as "not actually singing at her concerts."

The nerve of these ingrates!

Yes, Britney rang in 2018 on the confusingly-titled Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest, and sure she didn't actually sing, but at least she didn't just stand around asking for hot tea.

But apparently, some folks on Twitter haven't gotten the memo that Britney has officially reached Mariah-level icon status, which means she can spend the rest of her days just showing up places and being paid to do literally nothing.

The same haters and losers who want Donald John Trump to stop tweeting and govern also want Britney to stop being fabulous, and ... sing.

"Performing" at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Britney moved around on stage to the tune of "Work B-tch" and "Toxic."

And sadly, she began the year by being savagely corn-cobbed on Twitter.

"Oh great, Britney is going to mime AND lip sync another song for us," tweeted one blasphemer.

"I think they should just put a cardboard cut out with a musical recording of Britney Spears singing. All she does now is seemingly lip sync. #RockinEve Britney," remarked another.

Who does @britneyspears think she’s fooling? If your dance moves aren’t the same as 2006, clearly your vocals wouldn’t be either.... good try though. #RockinEve," echoed a third betrayer of the queen.

Yes, folks, it seems you can go take your hopes for a better and more just world in 2018 and toss them right in the trash.

Here's hoping the universe will be more appreciative of Britney's terrible lip-syncing in 2019.

Jamie Lynn Spears Reflects on Almost Losing Daughter in Tragic Accident

It was been 10 months since Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter was injured in an ATV accident. Since then, Maddie has made an impressive recovery.

Now, Jamie Lynn is celebrating milestones in her life on social media, and reflecting on Maddie's recovery and Maddie herself.

This is so heartwarming..

Jamie Lynn Spears, Maddie Aldridge, Precious Together

Maddie Aldridge's tragic ATV accident could have cost the girl her life.

Maddie was driving an ATV -- sometimes, that's what you do when you're part of a wealthy celebrity family and your aunt is some sort of deity-made-flesh -- when it flipped upside-down in the water.

They were initially unable to free Maddie, resulting in her being trapped underwater for a couple of minutes, constrained by her seatbelt and by the protective netting on the vehicle.

It was an absolute nightmare for Maddie and for her parents.

Britney Spears asked for prayers from fans for her niece's recovery. Initially, things looked grim.

As we all know, prolonged oxygen deprivation can have fatal results. And, even if Maddie survived, there was a chance that she'd lose things -- motor skills, speech, memories -- because of brain damage.

We are all so thankful that she made a full recovery. Maddie even returned to school less than two weeks later.

Still, it was a frightening time, and one that Maddie -- and her family -- will never forget.

Maddie Aldridge and The People Who Saved Her

Jamie Lynn Spears has been celebrating the 12 Days of Jamie Lynn Spears, reflecting upon her life's major milestones.

She posted this photo (above) with the caption:

"The hardest milestone me and my family have ever faced was almost losing our beautiful Maddie."

Obviously. It's heartbreaking just to think about.

"But thanks to God and the two angels in this picture we were able to celebrate Maddie turning 9 years old all together."

During the two days that it took Maddie to wake up, her parents and other loved ones must have been wondering if Maddie's 8th birthday would be her last.

"This milestone became a true miracle, and we are forever grateful for that."

Jamie Lynn Spears also reflected on Maddie's greater impact in her life.

"Some milestones we never see coming, but I'm so blessed that I­t­ did. Maddie is the biggest blessing in my life so far #12DaysofJLS"

That's a very cute way of reminding the world that you got pregnant as a minor.

In fact, Maddie was still starring on Nickelodeon's Zoey 101 at the time when she became pregnant.

We should also point out that she calls Maddie "the biggest blessing in my life so far."

You can just call her your biggest blessing and lat it be understood that she'd be tied with any other children you might have down the line.

(Remember, Jamie Lynn Spears is only 26)

But Jamie Lynn gets points for accuracy.

Jamie Watson, Maddie and Jamie Lynn Spears

Don't worry, folks -- not all of Jamie Lynn's milestones are as dramatic as teen pregnancy or as heartbreaking as her daughter's brush with death.

She's also given a shoutout to her engagement, followed by her 2014 marriage, to her sister Britney Spears, and to her time on Zoey 101.

And, lest we forget, she also reminds us that she was on All That.

Gotta love those Nickelodeon classics, right?
