Judge Orders Spears To Pay Federline's Legal Bill
BRITNEY SPEARS has been ordered to pay $120,000 (GBP60,000) to cover her ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE's legal bills in the couple's ongoing child custody battle. Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon considered Federline's original request for $160,000 (GBP80,000) before ruling the Toxic singer must pay $120,000 immediately. Commissioner Gordon took into consideration the "disparity between the parties' incomes" and that "the vast majority of the litigation deals with (Spears') conduct". In court documents released last week (ends02Nov07), it was revealed that Spears earns as much as $720,000 (3260,000) per month. Spears is fighting Federline for custody of their sons Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one. She currently has visitation rights to see her boys three times a week. The former couple's next custody hearing is set for 26 November (07).
