Add Kevin Federline to the growing list of parents headed back to court with their exes.
TMZ reports that Federline is requesting that the courts grant him more than the $20,000 per month in child support he currently gets from his ex-wife Brittany Spears.
Our sources say, last week, Jamie got a letter from Kevin’s lawyer, asking him if they could sit down and talk. They did indeed have a talk, and we’re told the lawyer explained now that 12-year-old Sean and 11-year-old Jayden have gotten older, Kevin needed more than $20k.
We’re told Jamie pressed again, asking what the kids needed that they weren’t getting. We’re told Kevin’s lawyer wouldn’t answer but said his client needed the means to take care of the 2 kids at Britney’s level. Jamie fired back … Britney’s taking care of the kids the way she always did — nothing’s changed.
Our sources say the lawyer repeatedly talked about Britney’s recent successes — particularly her sold-out Vegas shows — saying she was making a lot more money. We’re told Jamie kept pushing back, saying Britney’s success has nothing to do with the needs of the children, and his daughter wasn’t responsible for taking care of Kevin and his other families.
Spears and Federline have been divorced since 2007 at which time she cut a check for $1.3 million. In addition to child support, Spears paid Federline spousal support for several years.
