Britney Spears Files for Divorce

November 10, 2006 | Comments 98

US pop star Britney Spears has filed for divorce from her dancer husband Kevin Federline, according to court documents published in the US today.

The 24-year-old former teen idol, who married Federline in 2004, will seek custody of the couple’s two children, one-year-old Sean Preston and two-month-old Jayden James, the documents lodged at the Los Angeles County Superior Court said.

Spears’ lawyers cited “irreconcilable differences” for the split, however friends of the singer have said there was no single reason for the divorce, rather “a string of events”.

    I honestly don’t know why you married Kevin if you even know what Marriage is. Marriage is a lifelonging important thing in your lives, (i don’t believe in divorce)Okay from the beinning I didn’t know why you had to marry him so quickly, if you think a guy you love deeply and you know that you both will be around and loving each other all the way so what is the rush into marriage, there’s plenty of time. Okay I’ll tell you something, I have been together with my fanciable husband for 7 years and only had 5 years of happy times, 2 years were that we hated each other and couldn’t stand each other, but now we are falling in love again and loving every moment of it. Just to let you know that. That is what marriage is all about. Hope this is something interesting for you to know. Good luck and try to enjoy your life and kids. T x

    I’m sick of seeing this ugly cow. She needs to touch up her hair roots, get rid of her festering pimples,have liposuction on her flabby face, neck and body and replace her hideous bitten nails and toenails with fake nails. Then all she has to do is get some talent, a nice personality and stop letting her genitals fall out when she gets out of cars.

  6. Kristin says:

    good for you. i just hope its what you want or whats best for your children. i belive you know the answer to that and I dont think the world should know that answer. i have always admired you. and still do. some may call you names while other just laugh but dont forget about the ones who just think of you as a mother, proformer, singer, songwriter, friend,daughter, sister, and family member. Your still young ,so dont worry about the tabloids or media, countinue having fun and being you. however, thats a lot to deal with on your plate right now. but remimber God never gives us batles we cant fight. As for the media “LEAVE HER ALONE” . if Betty from down the street got divorced whould she be on the national enquire? NO!, well Britney is human just like everyone eles. Britney you know you have fans backing you up all the way, (as well as your family)
    Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas

  13. Jeff Hamilton says:

    Kevin is such a no-talent looser, he only has an album because he rode Britney’s fame and used her connections. She is a GODDESS and he is like a plague on her. It burns me up that they put his ugly face on WWE, ’cause he sucks and cant sing. All he did was lay around and sponge off of Britney. He would have no fame at all, if not for Britney’s fame!
    Congatulations and WAY TO GO BRITNEY! You Rock!

  16. Eva says:

    You were true…. that’s why it hurts… but you will get over it girl… I promise, and you will come out of it stronger… i wish you the ebst with your babies… Just take some time off, away from the papparazzi, so you can get better, and focus on your carreer, go to a spa, meditate, do rehab, get a coach, talk to anthony robbins, whatever, but do something.
    Now you are overwhelmed and trying to cope.. you need to slow down

    Britney all I can say to you is that since I was in grade 4 I’ve looked up to you!!! I’m now graduated out of high school! You were my role model as a young girl and I really hope you read this!!! Your desire to be a good mother no matter what the tabliods say, is a current ongoing thing that any girl or woman can look up to! I know you’ve had your share of tears with and the break up and paparazzi but, girl I want you to know, no matter what magazines or t.v shows say about you, I know Canada still loves you! Every person I know still loves you!!! Baby its life and its hard but what doesn’t kill you only make you stronger!!! I love you sooo much Brit! I know that the Britney I look up to will come through it all! I want my kids to experience you as the role model I do!!! Have faith in you always!

    Thank goodness britney that you divorce him,Everyone knew he just wanted YOU!!!for your money.He is a lowlife person to want to Blackmail you with the tape of your Honeymoon.And he want,s spousal support he doesn,t need spousal support, A matter a fact I hope everyone out there agress with me that HE SHOULD PAY YOU CHILD SUPPORT Weather you need it or not.He doesnt want the 25mil. Than HE should pay you 50mil inChild support,EVERY MONTH. Just like everyone else who gets a divorce,and has to pay child support weather its a man or woman. Go Get Him Britney .

  30. SHANNA says:

    I just wanna say fuck Kevin Federline! hes DONE NOTHING FOR BRITNEY! all he has done was ruin her life. He is a piece of shit. His music sucks. He doesnt give a shit about the kids. He did britney like he did his ex wife but he left his ex wife while she was fn pregnant Britney is WAY to good for Kevin! kevin is a slum bag who got britney on drugs! he should be kicked in the ass hes so retarded!

  31. Steph says:

    Hang in there…I hope the press leaves you alone soon. Whatever issues you have, we have all been there. I can only imagine the pain you must be dealing with, losing your life partner, having children, the media…it is all so painful, I can only imagine what it must be like to go through it all under the media microscope. You are human! You make mistakes! Alcohol, drugs…you were trying to numb the pain. I hope you get better soon, you are a talented performer.

  32. Anon says:

    She’s obviously out of her mind.. And right now I would award custody of the kids to kevin until she gets her act together. She had something so previous that people look up to her as a role model but flipped out…For whatever reason no excuse.. It just tarnished her name. She should of stuck with Madonna *roll eyes* Fame got her no where but crazy and insane. For a talented person.. You sure put your talents to waste. And that’s very disappointed. After the Beef between who was better Simpson and Aguleria Showed you off. Which is pathetic because you were on top of them. But you didn’t stay ahead you fell behind. Now look at you. Get your Sh*t together.

  33. Jamie Spears says:

    No way to get out of the lunch, but you don’t want to screw your diet up.
    For these reasons and more, do yourself a favor, and drink organic wheatgrass powder.
    The findings of this study were confirmed by other studies
    conducted in both Japan and Korea.
