  • Britney Spears hands over $15,000 a month to Kevin Federline in child support

    LEAKED COURT DOCUMENTS in the ongoing custody battle between Kevin Federline and Britney Spears have revealed the troubled star coughs up $15,000 a month in child support to her former partner.

    The sum Kevin receives, however, could change depending on how much more custodial time he ends up winning.

    The documents also revealed an intimate breakdown of the pair’s earnings and expenditure, with Kevin earning more than half a million from entertainment and endorsement deals – but only grossing $7,436 after business expenses.

    Britney, in contrast, earns approximately $737,000 a month.

    The reports revealed the former couple weren’t spend-shy, splashing out thousands on eating out and clothes. Britney spent $102,000 on gifts, entertainment and vacations, $16,000 on clothes, $4,758 on eating out and $49, 267 on mortgage payments, while Kevin spent $5,000 on gifts, entertainment and vacations, $7,500 on rent, $2,000 on clothes and $1,500 on eating out.

    Meanwhile, things go from bad to worse for the singer, as her former manager (1999-2003), Johnny Wright, is suing her, claiming she owes him in excess of $15,000 in back commission.

    The suit, filed in Florida on Monday, states that Spears was obligated to continue paying Wright Entertainment Group for deals through 2008, negotiated when Wright was her manager.

    According to the suit, Spears stopped paying commissions in 2006.
