Spears, Federline Are Divorced
Monday, July 30, 2007
LOS ANGELES Britney Spears' marriage to Kevin Federline officially ended Monday.
"They are divorced," the pop star's attorney, Laura Wasser, said after a Superior Court hearing. "Everything is finalized."
Court Commissioner Scott Gordon signed orders for dissolution of marriage, an alimony agreement and child custody.
The alimony agreement will not be made public unless there is an enforcement issue, Wasser said.
"Most of that tracks the prenup," the attorney said, without elaborating.
The child custody order was tentatively sealed, pending an Aug. 14 hearing.
"The best interests of the children could be harmed" if the arrangement were not sealed, Gordon said.
Spears married Federline in October 2004, eight months after her first marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander was annulled. She cited irreconcilable differences when she filed for divorce from Federline on Nov. 7, 2006.
Wasser said that Spears was "OK" with the terms of the settlement but that "she would like to be with her kids more."
