Kevin Federline’s Claim for Increased Child Support from Britney Spears: What’s the Real Story?
Kevin Federline Contemplates Legal Action for Increased Child Support
Kevin Federline, well-known as a professional dancer and the ex-husband of pop icon Britney Spears, is reportedly mulling over the idea of taking legal steps to request an increase in child support payments for their two sons, Jayden James and Sean Preston. According to sources, Federline believes that the current $40,000 per month he receives is inadequate. Federline’s reasoning stems from the original agreement, which was based on the assumption that both parents would share custody. However, Federline claims he has had full custody for years, making him think he should receive a higher amount.
A Closer Look at Federline’s Full-Time Custody Situation
According to TMZ, Federline has been the primary custodian for the two boys for a significant amount of time, fueling his belief that he is entitled to a larger sum of child support money. The case becomes more complicated as Sean Preston is nearing 18 years of age, which means Federline’s child support for him will soon cease. However, support for Jayden will continue until he finishes high school. Although efforts were made to contact Federline’s legal team for an official statement, there has been no response at the time of writing. Furthermore, it’s reported that Britney Spears has not seen her children for approximately two years.
Britney Spears’ Marital Saga Adds Complexity
This development in Federline’s child support quest comes hot on the heels of the news that Britney Spears’ recently-married husband, Sam Asghari, has filed for divorce. Spears and Asghari’s whirlwind romance began in 2016 on the set of her music video, “Slumber Party,” featuring Tinashe. The couple took their relationship to the next level by getting engaged in September 2021, and they sealed the deal with a wedding on June 9, 2022. After tying the knot, they moved into a lavish mansion in Calabasas, a property that Spears purchased for just under $12 million.
Asghari’s Divorce Filing: A Financial Game-Changer?
Interestingly, the divorce between Spears and Asghari may involve financial repercussions for the latter. Reports reveal that their prenuptial agreement doesn’t promise any financial payouts or spousal support for Asghari. However, he might have some leeway in contesting the prenuptial agreement, especially if he’s denied spousal support by the court. The agreement also contains a clause preventing Asghari from discussing any private aspects of his relationship with Spears. If the prenup is successfully contested, Asghari would be released from this NDA, a situation that Spears would likely want to avoid.
Could A Settlement Prevent a Prenup Showdown?
Some sources speculate that if Spears decides to offer Asghari a financial settlement, it may eliminate the possibility of a contested prenup. This could be a strategic move on Spears’ part to keep the details of their relationship confidential.
Conclusion: Multiple Legal Battles on the Horizon
As Britney Spears navigates the tumultuous waters of a recent divorce filing by her estranged husband Sam Asghari, her ex-husband Kevin Federline contemplates taking her to court for increased child support. Federline’s argument for higher payments is based on his claim of having sole custody of their sons for an extended period. With Sean Preston soon aging out of child support and a complicated prenuptial agreement with Asghari, the pop star may be bracing herself for multiple legal confrontations. All of these factors contribute to a legal and financial web that could take time to untangle, but one thing is clear: the next chapter in Britney Spears’ life promises to be as captivating as ever.
