Spears Ordered To Pay Up

BRITNEY SPEARS has been ordered to pay her ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE's lawyer $375,000 (GBP187,500) in legal fees. Attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan was asking for $500,000 (GBP250,000) for his part in the pop star's custody fight with her ex, but Los Angeles Commissioner Scott Gordon slashed that figure, agreeing Spears should pay her former husband's "reasonable" fees. In a hearing in Los Angeles on Monday morning (17Mar08), Spears' lawyers called the settlement outrageous, according to TMZ.com. In the court order, obtained by the website, Spears' legal payments have been disclosed, showing her former lawyer, Laura Wasser, charged the singer over $160,000 (GBP80,000) in legal fees, while legal firm Trope + Trope, who represented Spears in her custody battle for five months, are asking for more than $680,000 (GBP340,000) in fees. Meanwhile, in a concurrent hearing, Andrew Wallet - the co-conservator of Spears' estate - was granted permission to sell some of the singer's cars. Wallet shares control of the pop star's legal and financial affairs with her father Jamie. Presiding Judge Reva Goetz also extended the restraining order against Spears' former manager Sam Lutfi for another month.
