BRITNEY SPEARS is giving an early CHRISTMAS gift to ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE -- $120,000, for the legal bills he has amassed in his child-custody battle with the pop singer, the LOS ANGELES Superior Court confirmed to MTV NEWS on TUESDAY (11/6).
Commissioner SCOTT GORDON made the ruling in light of the "disparity between the parties' income" and that "the vast majority of the ... litigation deals with [SPEARS'] conduct," according to documents released TUESDAY, TMZ reports. As it was revealed last week, SPEARS earns approximately $737,000 each month, while FEDERLINE made $7,436, after business expenses, in all of 2006. FEDERLINE's lawyer had originally requested $160,000, the total costs for FEDERLINE's fees, according to USMAGAZINE.COM. He currently receives $15,000 a month from SPEARS in child support and $20,000 in spousal support, which expires NOVEMBER 15th.
