Kevin Federline says he deserves more money from his ex Britney Spears in order
to care for the two sons they share when they are in his custody.
The backup dancer and DJ filed legal documents Tuesday seeking an increase in
child support, stating he makes 'approximately $3,000 per month' which is
reportedly less than one percent Spears annual income, according to
Spears, 36, who's reported by Forbes to earn $34 million a year, currently pays
him $20,000-a-month from an agreement dating back to 2008 to support sons Sean
Preston, 12, and Jayden James, 11.
Federline's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan told UsWeekly Tuesday that he should be
paid 'at least three times the amount' because of the disparity in circumstances
the boys experience when moving between their parents' homes.
Kaplan said Federline filed a legal case after attempts to settle the matter
privately between the parties failed.
'We gave them ample time and opportunity to settle Kevins child support
modification increase, and they came back with conditions that are not
reasonable,' the attorney told UsWeekly.
'Its their position that they dont have to turn over Britneys financial
information, including tax returns, which is required under the California
family code. Its not California celebrity code edition, she has to comply.'
