Britney’s lawyer, Laura Wasser and Kevin’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan just left the courtroom after a closed hearing. Sources say nothing substantive was decided and all hearings regarding Kevin’s request for child support have been put off until a later date.
Britney Spears’ legal team is about to square off with Kevin Federline’s in an L.A. court, and the central issue is going to be whether Kevin needs additional child support for the 2 kids he had with Britney or whether it’s because he’s trying to get her to support his other 4 kids.
As TMZ first reported, Britney has been paying Kevin $20k a month in child support for years. In addition to the support checks, we’re told Britney pays for the kids’ tuition and related school expenses, clothing, extracurricular activities (including sports), and various other expenses. In all, she forks over around $35k a month.
Kevin’s lawyer has reportedly demanded $60k a month … which Britney and her conservator, Jamie Spears, have refused to pay. We’re told Jamie is agreeable to raising child support by around $10k a month, despite the fact he believes Kevin doesn’t really pay for anything related to the kids.
