Recent reports have revealed that Britney Spears’s ex-husband Kevin Federline wants an increase in child support from the singer. Kevin Federline and Britney Spears tied the knot in 2004 but split after only three years of marriage. Following their divorce, the pair focused on co-parenting their two sons, Jayden James and Sean Preston, amicably. However, at some point, Federline became the kids’ full guardian, receiving $40,000 monthly in child support from Spears. Now, the dancer is allegedly arguing that the amount isn’t enough to cater to the boys anymore.
Kevin Federline Says Child Support Isn’t Enough Anymore
Kevin Federline and Britney Spears divorced for over a decade ago, but the issues between them are seemingly unending. Now, the duo may allegedly go to court regarding Kevin Federline’s child support. According to sources with direct knowledge, the father of five wants an increase in the amount he receives for child support from Spears. The insiders revealed to TMZ that Federline gets $40,000 monthly for the two children. However, he wanted to file for an increase as the amount wasn’t in tandem with the child support agreement’s terms and conditions.
According to the sources, Federline’s agreement was founded on both parties having the kids 50 percent of the time. But for the past few years, he had been with the children 100 percent of the time, hence his decision. Meanwhile, Sean Preston will turn 18 in a few days, which will mean the end of child support for one of the kids. However, Jayden James won’t be finishing high school until June 2025, so half of the amount will remain intact. However, if Federline can prove that he needs more than $20,000 for Jayden James’s full-time care, he might receive an increase.
Britney Spears Relieved Her Son Is Turning 18
The update about Kevin Federline’s child support comes about a week after Spears expressed her thoughts on Sean Preston turning 18 soon. A source close to the singer revealed that Spears was relieved, as she was tired of paying her ex-husband a large amount for child support. The source said Spears was happy to help her sons and glad her help would go to them directly after they turned 18. The insider also shared that the blonde singer believed it was time for Federline to get a job and not depend on her money to feed his large family. Unfortunately, it seems like the Kevin Federline and Britney Spears issues may never end until their kids become adults. Meanwhile, Federline and his sons now live far away from Spears in Hawaii, making a possible reconciliation more difficult.
