Britney Beat K-Fed to the Punch

We are still mourning the sad news about Reese and Ryan's split but at the same time we are elated about the Britney news. We love that she filed for divorce leaving K-Fed behind, and now we're hearing that K-Fed was planning to divorce Britney too. Apparently Kevin has been secretly meeting with lawyers since May and was even planning on using Sean P as leverage, but Brit beat him to it. L&S reports:

“Kevin is focused on his tour,” says an insider. “I don’t think he was prepared for this.” When contacted by Life & Style, Kevin’s rep seemed to have no idea that Britney had filed divorce papers. In fact, insiders say Kevin was preparing a divorce bombshell of his own.

As early as last May, Kevin, 28, began secretly meeting with his lawyer, Mark Kaplan, to work out a settlement deal with Britney, 24. Kevin was prepared to use their son, Sean Preston, now 1, as leverage: If Britney didn’t give Kevin $10 million, plus their $10 million Malibu mansion, he would sue her for custody, claims an insider. “Kevin knows that Sean is Britney’s Achilles’ heel,” an insider says.

But the couple stayed together through the birth of their second son, Jayden James, now 2 months. Yet Life & Style knows that Kevin recently went back to his lawyer for more secret divorce talks — and this time, he had two babies to use as pawns. He was hoping to score a $30 million payday.

“He feels like $10 million is not a generous amount if he and Britney split since he won’t have any part of his sons’ lives,” says an insider.

But Britney was too quick for him. While Kevin was caught up with his troubled album-release tour, she filed papers of her own asking for legal and physical custody of Sean and Jayden — before the couple reached any kind of deal.

“There was no way she was going to let Kevin lead the way on this subject,” says a close friend of Kevin’s. “She filed first to save face. It’s all about taking care of the babies and keeping the money.”

And Brit’s prenup should be airtight. According to the prenup, Kevin will receive $300,000, any gifts Britney bought him that cost less than $10,000 and half the value of their $10 million Malibu mansion.

You go girl! Can you imagine if Kevin had slapped the papers on Brit first? And if he was really planning to use Sean P as leverage, he's just a total jerk who deserves to be kicked to the curb. Let the K-Fed backlash begin.

JUST CURIOUS. WONDER IF THERE ARE ANY 'OTHER WOMEN,' SOMEWHERE, OUT THERE WHO COULD COME FORWARD, PROVING HE HAD BEEN UNFAITHFUL ? OF COURSE WE COULD ASK THE SAME OF BRITNEY, EXCEPT SHE WAS PREGNANT THE ENTIRE DURATION OF THEIR MARRIAGE............. WHAT THIS PERSON NEEDS TO DO TO PROVE HIS REAL MANHOOD IS CONTRIBUTE TO ALL OF HIS KIDS EMOTIONAL & FINANCIAL UPBRINGING; I REALLY DOUBT IF THIS COULD HAPPEN. HE WILL NEVER FIND ANYONE HE LOVES MORE THAN HIMSELF. POOR MR. FEDERSLIME.

She didnt go on letterman for her divorce specifically. Some said it this way last night. She went to show her self looking good so when shit went down the following day, people wouldnt be posting icky pics of her looking bad and doing dumb things. I mean Im sure its hard enough to go thru a divorce when your celeb status is high as it is, but then to go thru it with pics of you driving with ur kid or walking barefoot? Yah. I dont think any of us would want that. -------------------- -------------------- Fab Find for the holidays Every tuesday! This week lets pick out gifts for our Significant others!

I think it is so sick that she is once again going on Letterman to promote her "PRIVATE LIFE". If she had class, she would try to keep the matter private, like Reese. While complaining about privacy, she constantly sells her private life to the public. Gross.

No its not a video behind the divorce. Its a video of him when he was in canada taping him for a show called much music. much music says that kfed was on his sidekick when he got a text message that britney filed for divorce. You can see the video on perez hiltons site.

If the video is authentic, it's all Kevin behind it. Pfft, who cares, really? They WERE married, after all. But I definitely feel for the temporary blindness you suffered at the sight of a prick's prick.

I don't get the comment about how Nick Lachey is a "meathead" , really I don't. How is HE dumb? The guy is well spoken, but unfortunately people can't get past what they perceive him to be. Britney and Nick isn't a good match at all, but she would be lucky to get a man like that.
