Back in February, Kevin Federline demanded more child support from Britney Spears.
He argued that the $ 20,000 he receives each month isn’t enough support for the two preteen sons, of whom he shares custody with Britney.
Well, it looks like he’s gotten his wish.
The Blast reports that Kevin Federline and Britney Spears have reached a new child support agreement.
Apparently Britney will be paying “thousands more a month in child support,” the report reveals.
An inside source tells E! that Britney and her team think that the new agreement is giving Britney’s ex too much.
“They are not happy,” the insider reveals. “And think the settlement is ludicrous.”
“But,” the source explains. “They wanted to make an agreement so that they could move on.”
That makes sense. Any legal battle is tiring, but this is especially true when both sides share children. You want the conflict to end.
Honestly, this is probably the outcome that Federline’s team hoped for, because Britney can afford to cave in order to rid herself of a source of stress.
Despite that, Britney is said to be “very unhappy” with this outcome.
She knows, the insider says, that this is “in her best interest.”
“She was tired of fighting about it,” the source explains. “And is ready to get on with her life and put this behind her.”
Britney may be less than thrilled, but Federline’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan is over the moon.
“I am happy that they came around to resolving this matter,” Kaplan tells E!
“I am sure that they decided the money would be better extended on child support than on attorney’s fees,” he says.
“Which,” Kaplan continues. “Would’ve achieved the same result for Kevin but only after months and hundreds of thousands of dollars on litigation.”
Kaplan’s statement concludes: “They made a wise decision.”
Someone close to Federline says that there’s a clear winner, and it isn’t Britney.
“Kevin is getting more money monthly than what he had originally asked for before he ever filed his RFO,” the insider says.
In this source’s opinion: “Britney’s team would’ve been better off settling with Kevin at that time because now he got more than what he initially asked for.”
“There are more attorney fees that Britney agreed to pay that were folded into the settlement,” the insider reasons. “in addition to the $ 100,000 Mark Kaplan was already rewarded.”
We mentioned that Britney was ordered to pay for Federline’s attorney’s fees just last month.
“Kevin is extremely pleased for himself, for the kids and for Britney,” the source describes.
“It was the right thing to do on her part,” the insider opines. “And it allows the kids to get the benefit of the standard of living both parents can provide for them.”
That, at least, is a point with some merit. Sean Preston and Jayden James spend part of the time with their dad and part of the time with their mom.
While $ 20,000 is more than enough to cover all of the basic needs and most of the wants of two preteen boys for a fraction of each month, that doesn’t mean that their lifestyle should plummet when it’s their turn with dad, right?
Still, and call us cynical, but it’s difficult to see this as anything more than a grab for more money because Britney is loaded and Kevins “DJ career” is somehow failing to take the world by storm.

Earlier this week, the world learned that Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have broken up after just over a year of dating.
Given the fact that the couple went to great pains to keep their relationship as private as possible, perhaps it should come as no surprise that there was no official statement confirming the split.
What is surprising, however, is the fact that Ben moved on within days of the breakup.
Yes, these days, Affleck is dating Playboy model Shauna Sexton.
Aside from drunkenly posting all-caps rage comments on an article suggesting that it’s time for Tom Brady to retire, dumping a successful career woman who’s at least close to his age in favor of a 22-year-old centerfold is the most Ben Affleck thing Ben Affleck has ever done.
Those who know him best probably aren’t shocked by the decision — but that doesn’t mean they like it.
According to Us Weekly, Jennifer Garner has been quite vocal about her distaste for Ben’s new relationship.
A source close to the situation tells the tabloid that it’s not a matter of jealousy — rather it’s the fact that Jen desperately wants her three children to have a relationship with their father, but she feels she can’t trust Affleck when he’s spending his time with hard-partying college-aged women.
“Jen realized a long time ago that she cannot fix Ben and that his problems are not hers to solve,” says the insider.
“She’s not his babysitter. She just wants to protect the kids. But she does wish Ben would keep his life more private.”
The source goes on to claim that while Ben’s reckless rebound behavior was not unexpected, Jen had hoped for a shred of maturity from her ex.
“Of course she’s not pleased he’s dating a 22-year-old Playboy model,” the insider adds.
“But she’s also not surprised. Jen has come to expect this from Ben. She’s not going to get involved. She can’t make decisions for him.”
And this isn’t a case of Jen being skeptical of Shauna simply because of her age or profession.
You see, Affleck is still newly sober, and Shauna is, well … not.
Her Playboy bio she reveals that she loves whiskey, and Ben was recently spotted carrying a case of the hard stuff into his home.
Sources close to the actor swear the booze was for Shauna, but members of his inner circle are still concerned.
Even if Ben is still off the sauce, taking up with a hard-drinking girlfriend half his age doesn’t exactly improve his chances of staying sober.
Here’s hoping Ben will slow things down a bit before he spirals out of control once again.

As you’ve likely heard by now, Justin Bieber is reportedly engaged to Hailey Baldwin.
Beliebers the world over were stunned by the news, but perhaps no one was more shocked than Justin’s most famous ex, Selena Gomez.
Justin and Selena just got back together for the 40 bajillionth time earlier this year, and many fans assumed that if Justin were to propose to anyone, it would be Gomez.
Sources close to the singer say Selena was utterly blindsided by the report that Justin and Hailey are planning to get hitched.
“Selena was totally shocked and stunned to hear it’s being reported that Justin proposed to Hailey,” one insider tells Hollywood Life.
“She honestly can’t believe it. Selena didn’t think they were even that serious, so the thought of them getting married is just mind-boggling to her.”
Like pretty much everyone who’s familiar with this situation, Selena is mystified as to what Justin was thinking when he popped the question to a woman he’s only been with for a few weeks.
“Selena can’t help feeling that Justin has some ulterior motive going on, like, he’s trying to make her jealous, or he’s proving a point to her that he really is grown up and ready for commitment,” our source added.
“She just can’t get her mind around it otherwise.”
Obviously, Selena is far from alone on that one.
A different source claims Selena blames her mother for her latest breakup with Justin.
“We could easily be talking about Justin and Selena being engaged right now, but the strain that her mom brought to that rekindled relationship basically was the last straw for them to be a forever couple,” the insider says.
“They tried and there was push-back from her family to him and he didn’t want to deal with that the rest of his life. So that is why he found love elsewhere.”
One insider says the quickie engagement has led Selena to question whether Justin’s declarations of love were ever sincere:
“If it is a serious proposal, and Justin is being totally genuine in wanting to marry Hailey, then Selena can’t help questioning what he really felt about her, and if her really did love her, because it was only a few months ago that he was declaring his undying love for her, and swearing he couldn’t live without her,” the source claims.
Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean Justin was lying to Selena.
We get the feeling this is a guy who falls in and out of love very easily.
Like, we wouldn’t be surprised if dude proposed to an Egg McMuffin this morning.
