As you surely know, the former flames are currently estranged over the 39-year-old’s recent request for more money. Despite currently getting $20K a month from Godney for child support, KFed has been in negotiations with Spears’ camp in the hopes of increasing his stipend.
However, it’s been reported that the money talks haven’t been going well, as Britney’s father Jamie Spears isn’t convinced that Kevin REALLY needs the funds. Regardless, the ex backup dancer wants (what he believes) is owed to him, and is 100% willing to take the matter to court.
An insider spilled to Us Weekly:
“Kevin truly wanted to try and settle the child support payment increase without getting the courts involved out of respect for Britney, and of course, their two sons.”
Sadly, the tipster noted that this issue is unlikely to be resolved without “court intervention.” To make matters worse, it appears that Federline isn’t rushing to have this issue resolved. The source continued:
“Jamie and Britney Spears sent a response to Kevin’s request for an increase to his child support payments, to his lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan. Kevin has flatly rejected it.”
Clearly, this child support battle is far from over. Per reports, Kevin plans to request “a once yearly income and expense declaration from Britney including most recent tax returns filed,” in order to best assess what sum is due to him. Kevin and his team feel confident that, following Britney’s Las Vegas success, more money should be given to Federline (who has full custody of sons Jayden and Sean):
“Meeting with Jamie Spears, along with his lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, Kevin laid out the reasons why he was requesting the increase for child support payments. Kevin is tremendously disappointed that the offer was rejected, but is prepared to proceed.”
Understandably, this baby daddy drama has left the Toxic singer feeling a “tremendous amount of stress.” Like any parent, “she just wants this resolved as quickly as possible.” An insider close to the chart topper added:
“The cause for concern is that Kevin is given an increase this time, what is going to stop him from coming back the next time Britney signs another big deal, wanting a piece of that?”
Nonetheless, we hope these two are able to settle this issue OUT OF COURT. We doubt Jayden and Sean want to be at the center of a family feud!
