Should Britney Pay Kevin More Money?

Kevin Federline may be snagging magazine covers, but he's not living the same luxurious lifestyle as when he was Britney's husband. While he no longer receives spousal support, he still gets $15,000 a month in child support. However, that amount was decided back when they shared 50/50 custody. Now that he has primary custody, rumor has it that he will be asking for more from Britney. What do you think — should Kevin get more money?

You're very defensive when it comes to Kevin Ginger. That's fine but please don't put words in my mouth. I'm not "spewing hate" about Kevin at all, just my opinion on the situation as it is presented in this article. And I clearly have also stated in a previous post "IF" this is true and acknowledged that this is after all a rumour, did I not? We are presented with a question to give our opinion on and I have stated mine, based on not only this article but on many other things I have seen and read in the years that Kevin was in the picture. The law is the law, I agree, and whether that law is right or wrong, that is a completely different discussion. Is Britney an unfit mother? Probably. Does she have the intelligence or drive to better herself? Probably not. Is Kevin Father of the Year for doing the last few months what he was supposed to be doing since day one? Abosolutely not. When it comes to money (or related issues) I will always question his motives.

Kevin had to fight to get 50/50 because Britney tried to get full custody and take his kids away from him. As is obvious to the rest of the world, Britney has been acting less sane over the past year, so the need to get the kids away from her is more urgent than it seemed a year ago. Sean is always pulling away from Britney. No photos of her with her children show any kind of affection or bond. Britney only paid for 75% of his lawyer bill. He still had to pay $40,000 so far, and compared to no lawyer bills with Shar because she was a sane adult who worked out an arrangement. If Britney were not such an idiot, he wouldn't be in court so often, which would lower the legal bills, so yea, she should pay, because it's her fault they legal bills exist in the first place. And most importantly, after all the hate you've all spewed at Kevin in this thread, he has not asked for one single penny more than what he's getting. It's all rumor at this point.

Just a few pointers to Ginger and others: This whole ordeal wouldn't be so fishy if it wasn't for the splendid timing that Kevin and his handlers have demonstrated. He didn't "fight" for Kori and Kaleb because Shar is a) not chased and hunted down every day by paps and therefor can raise her children in peace and b) Shar does NOT have the income Britney has. You may argue that Britney is whore-ing her children to X17 and other paps but the fact is when she has the children she is always WITH THEM. Kevin has spent many many days/weeks/months with his children and yet only the nanny's are caught on pictures with them. Unless of course, he needs his photo-op , then all of a sudden pictures emerge (wonder where those come from?) of him holding Sean ( clearly showing the kid's bodylanguage saying "get away from me" but that is probably "normal" right?) If he thought she was so crazy and unfit to be a mother he could have started "the fight for a good cause" back when the first custody agreement was 50/50. He didn't. Regardless of Britney's stupidity (which is pretty obvious) or who earns the most , this has been and always will be a money issue. I find it very funny that people feel Britney should foot the bill for his lawyers, AND spousal support AND chidsupport just because she simply can. And I doubt people would feel the same if they were in her shoes with an ex-spouse that is handling matters in this way.

I should just make a blog FAQ on Federline's income, because it feels like I've typed this a dozen times or more here at Pop. He got half a million for the Nationwide Insurance commercial for the Superbowl. Another 250,000 for an appearance this year. In addition, he's done some tv, but he probably worked for scale on that. He's got a New Years Eve club appearance lined up next month... I think that's $100k, or it could be more. So he's going to make more that night than the majority of people here will for the entire year. He should be telling all of you to go get a job. There were a number of things arranged in the prenup that gave him income, including pictures of the family (yet he hasn't sold any of his kids pics to the media,) so Chaotic profits may have qualified under that. (I'm not sure about Chaotic.) Considering Britney only has her kids 30 hours a week there isn't a lot of meals and shopping being done for them on her watch. The reports I saw didn't itemize her shopping, although clothes were a separate break-out item. She spends more on clothes every month than she does on child support. How can people defend that?

Ginger, how does Kevin earn his own money? This is news to me. I had heard previously that Brit let him have the money from their tv show. But other than that, I'm really curious what he's doing. Plus correct me if I'm wrong (and I'm sure you guys will), under Brit's expenses when it says "food" or "shopping" is it itemized? Meaning for I know that may include her children, of course that was when they were with her. Let me also clear something else up, the only thing I was debating was K-Fed's intentions, NOT his love. :)
browneyedchica browneyedchica 9 years
It's just a harmless debate people. Also we believe the worst because we read gossip columns. Or am I on the wrong site?

Ginger, It's a lost cause. People believe the worst of Kevin Federline. They never gave the man a chance from day one. I always thought it was because he wasn't Justin Timberlake. But of course the anti-Federline's don't want to admit that Britney ruined that relationship with her CHEATING. She's been terrible for a while now...but of course, all her problems are Kevin Federline's fault. I swear you could make a drinking game out of how many times a person mentions he doesn't love his two older children and blah, blah, blah.

Do you guys even read before posting the same misinformation over and over and over and over? For the umpteenth time, Shar DOES NOT get money from Britney. Kevin earns his own money and gives a lot of it to Shar. His children with Shar stay with him all the time and play with Britney's kids. Child support has to pay for things to support those children. Britney is spending about 2% of her income on child support. The other 98% she blows on buying junk. No savings, investments or education funds for her children.

Thank you MistyEdge. I didn't even have to reply you did it for me! I didn't even take into consideration the fact that now Shar is getting Brit's money too. Another reason he should get a job! He SHOULD be responsible to take care of ALL of his kids financially and every other way. How could he support his kids with Shar otherwise? And if he does plan on staying home why don't his other kids stay with him too? I don't know that much about Shar, so that is assuming she works.

In California, child support is based on the parent's income.

Kevin WAS a loser before he met Britney, it just didn't show. ONly a loser would leave his pregnant girlfriend in the lurch for someone else. Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT defending Britney, but Kevin does NOT deserve more money! If the courts want to say that based on on her income the KIDS deserve more money fine, open a trust account and put that money in there to save for their future, and only give Kevin what he ABSOLUTELY NEEDS to get through month to month. THAT'S what Child Support should be based on, NOT what the other parent makes. And again, I said the same thing about Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady. She doesn't deserve 28,000 dollars a month in support just because he CAN pay it. A BABY DOESN'T NEED THAT MUCH! It doesn't make one WHIT of difference to me if it's the man or the woman asking for the support. In either case exorbitant amounts are wrong. Make this case about ANY two people, not Brit and Kevin. Make it about your neighbors. IT DOESN'T MATTER, 15000 a month is TOO MUCH MONEY I don't care if you make 2 bazillion dollars a year!

Dollylo, Britney Spears proposed to Kevin Federline...she also wanted kids, BADLY, she's also the one that started the divorce proceedings. Federline was NOT a loser before marrying Spears. He was actually a professional and pretty successful dancer. No, he didn't make the same amount of money as Britney Spears, but that hardly qualifies someone as a loser. And just because a person "lives in a small place" doesn't make them a loser, and just because some a person makes millions doesn't make them a winner. Also, why does Federline's fight for Sean Preston and Jaden James mean that he loves them more than Kori and Kaleb. I don't see the correlation. To me it means that one mother is psycho and the other is sane. PS: Why is it that Kevin Federline's past mistakes keep being used against him, and yet you're not holding Britney Spears accountable for her past and currently and undoubtly future behavior?

Oh geez..let's see..that's only like what..180K a year. That's a hard question..I mean, my parents managed to support of a family of 4 on less than half of that. He should be able to adequately take care of two children with that much money. If not, maybe he should consider getting a job.

UMM lemme count....if she gave more it was better but its ok LOL

A big YES from me. She rather is spending her money on her kids than in drugs, alcohol, cars, clothes.. senseless stuff in my opinion. The kids can use it way better, and I'm sure, so will Kevin.

Go find a job? He probably made more than anyone in this thread this year. Shar didn't try to take his kids away like Britney did, so there was no need for a fight. They worked it out between them like two grown-ups who had their children's best interest in mind. His kids with Shar stay at his house a lot and are close to Sean and Jayden. He pays also Shar a lot of money, from his own income, for those kids support. The reason Kevin and Britney got married so fast is that she stalked him and proposed twice and she wanted to get married and start a family right away.

Hell No!!!! :angry: Before getting married with Britney he was a big loser (and still is by the way) and was living in a small place and had no money!! Now that's enought!!!! Go and find a job KFed!!!! To Tiabia: I simply don't like this KFed guy cause he was with Shar and got 2 children with her, then he got married with Britney really fast, got 2 babies with her, ask her for some support in the industry to release the worst album of the year, and then left her. Now, he's in a big fight for their 2 boys! But why he didn't do the same with Shar's children?? If he really loves his kids, maybe he should remember that he got 2 others but with a less fortunated mom!!!
