Britney Spears and Kevin Federline Reach Final Custody Agreement

By Sheryl Rentz on February 27, 2009

On July 25, 2008, Britney Spears filed a settlement at the Superior Court in Los Angeles to finalize her child custody agreement with ex-husband, Kevin Federline. A week prior, Spears had consented to give her ex custody — both physical and legal control — of Jayden James and Sean Preston, their two children. Per the agreement, Spears would retain the right to visit her children. According to sources like E! and TMZ.com, Spears has had to pay out more than $2.5 million in legal fees in 2008 — nearly ¾ of a million of which went to Mark Kaplan, a lawyer representing Kevin Federline. She also had to pay nearly the same amount to assemble a team to hammer out the conservatorship of her estate. In February, 2008, Spears’ dad and her lawyer, Andrew Wallet, were named co-conservators of the pop star’s assets and estate, and according to arrangements made on July 25, 2008, that conservatorship should be extended at least another half a year. On October 28, 2008, a hearing was held to review the progress of the conservatorship.

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline’s public, salacious, and unfortunate divorce has played out over the last several years to an audience of millions of tabloid readers and E! entertainment viewers. Outlandish anecdotes about Spears’ behavior during and after the divorce and custody battles abound. In one highly publicized incident, Spears suffered what appeared to have been a nervous breakdown and shaved off all of her hair. She has been hospitalized multiple times for nervous conditions over the past two years and has seen her status as a pop princess falter. Particularly embarrassing was her performance at the 2007 Video Music Awards.
