Britney Spears’ ex Kevin Federline set to lose child support amid feud

0

Britney Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline is reportedly losing child support payments he received from Spears over the next two years.

The dancer-turned-DJ has been slammed by Spears fans after revealing in an interview that their sons chose not to see the star and defended her father for placing her under a controversial 13-year conservatorship that ended l ‘last year.

Federline’s comments about his ex come as the father of six prepares to see Spears’ monthly child support payments stop when his sons turn 18 in September 2023 and 2024.

Kevin Federline has fought to increase child support for Britney Spears.

In 2018, Federline went to court and asked for an increase in monthly child support payments by $20,000. He claimed he earned less than 1% of what Spears earned and thought she should pay more when it came to their sons, Sean and Jayden.

In court papers, according to Radar Online, Federline said Spears was “one of the most recognized musical performers of our time,” having sold 80 million records worldwide.

In his statement, Federline said he worked as a DJ and music producer, telling the court he currently earns significantly less than when they reached their original child support agreement in 2008 after their divorce.

“I work as a DJ. My income this year is approximately $3,000 per month, which I earn by traveling to various entertainment venues across the country and providing musical entertainment,” Federline reportedly said in the court documents.

“My income has changed significantly since the last child support change in about 2008 because I no longer earn a six-figure income like I did in 2008.”

“I’m no longer able to perform as a dancer due to my age, and I haven’t had as much success creating new music as I did in 2008. I’m just less ‘name’ and less in demand than I was in 2008, which had a negative impact on my income.

Federline allegedly claimed he needed more child support to provide similarities between the lifestyle Sean and Jayden live at home and the one they live when they are with their mother.

Spears, who was still under his guardianship at the time, opposed the request for a raise.

She allegedly claimed that child support payments were only a portion of what she paid for her children and that she shelled out money for her son’s tutoring, extracurricular activities, clothes and phone bills.

“We want to know where that $20,000 is going,” a source close to Spears told Entertainment Tonight. “Kevin wants a raise and he can’t explain where the $20,000 is going.”

However, Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, ended up offering Federline additional payments of $10,000 per month and the dispute was settled soon after.

Now the Federline child support checks he receives from Spears will go down after their eldest son, Sean, turns 18 next year before Jayden also turns 18 the following year.

Federlin, Thewho was married to Spears for three years, from 2004 to 2007, also has two adult children from a relationship before she married Spears and two other children from her current marriage.

He recently spoke about the relationship between Spears and their children, telling the Daily Mail that Sean and Jayden chose not to see their mother.

“It’s been a few months since they’ve seen her,” Federline told the publication. “They made the decision not to go to his wedding.”

Spears later took to Instagram, according to CBS News, calling the interview “hurtful.”

“It saddens me to learn that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children. As we all know, raising teenagers is never easy for anyone,” she wrote. . “I gave them everything.”
