Celebrity Parents Kevin Federline files for custody, acquires new nickname By Staff Author Published on November 8, 2006 09:56 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Britney Spears made headlines when she filed for divorce from her hubby of two years, Kevin Federline, on Tuesday. In the paperwork, Britney asks for the legal and physical custody of the couple’s two sons, 1-year-old Sean Preston and nearly 2-month-old Jayden James, allowing Kevin reasonable visitation. Now Britney’s soon-to-be ex, who has now acquired the new moniker of FedEx, has counter-filed with the L.A. courts asking for sole custody of the two boys. Kevin has also requested that Britney provides him with spousal support, despite a rumored iron-clad pre-nup the two signed before their 2004 nuptials. "Kevin is prepared to go the distance in order to do what he feels is necessary to protect and safeguard the children and will not be intimidated or dissuaded from pursuit of those goals," said Michael Sands, spokesman for Mark Vincent Kaplan, K-Fed’s attorney. Given his past history of, um, going out a lot, we suspect he won’t be awarded custody (which he must know) but is just doing this to get back at Britney. Also, with sole custody, Britney would probably be required to pay child support in addition to the spousal support he is asking for. To the reader who asked- One parent being awarded sole custody does not mean the other would not receive visitation rights. Source: Yahoo News Spears, 24, married Federline, 28, in 2004.
