Spears Reaches Divorce Settlement With Federline
BRITNEY SPEARS and KEVIN FEDERLINE reached an amicable divorce settlement yesterday (29MAR07), including a custody agreement over their two young sons.
The estranged couple spent five hours at the Los Angeles offices of the TOXIC star's lawyer LAURA WASSER along with Federline's attorney MARK VINCENT KAPLAN.
MICHAEL SANDS, spokesman for Federline's lawyer, says, "The parties signed a global settlement on all issues of their marriage and the custody of the children."
The terms of the agreement were not revealed, but a Los Angeles judge still has to approve the documents.
Spears, 25, filed for divorce on 7 November (06) - just two months after giving birth to their youngest child JAYDEN JAMES - citing "irreconcilable differences".
In the divorce papers, Spears was seeking legal and physical custody of Jayden James and SEAN PRESTON, 18 months, while former dancer Federline, 29, also asked for custody of the children, as well requested spousal support.
The couple wed in October 2004 after a whirlwind six month romance.
The divorce agreement comes nine days after Spears checked out of Promises Rehab Centre in Malibu, California for a month-long treatment for unspecified problems.
