"Spears filed legal papers today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences." In her petition, Spears asks for both legal and physical custody of the couple's two children, one-year old Sean Preston and two-month old Jayden James, with Federline getting reasonable visitation rights.
As for money, sources tell TMZ the couple, who married in Sept. 2004, has an iron-clad prenup. Not surprisingly, Spears is waiving her right to spousal support. She's also asking the judge to make each party pay their own attorney's fees.
Spears gives the date of separation as yesterday, the same day she flaunted her incredible revamped physique during a surprise appearance on David Letterman's show. Sources tell TMZ there was no single reason for Britney pulling the plug, rather, it was "a string of events."
Divorce is nothing to be celebrated, but I am VERY proud of Ms Spears today!! I knew when she showed up with the new look and slimmed down body, watching the Pussycat Dolls routines, that she was planning something. And am I the only one who noticed that today is exactly one week from the release of Kfag's album?? This was planned, and the second baby, sutton or james or whatever he wants to be called, delayed the proceedings. I would have tried to keep the marriage alive too, with 2 kids under 1 year old!!! But, hurrah! Today is the beginning of a brand new Britney era!! and as Perez said, "Now if only Justin would dump crater face and get back together with B, everything would be right in this world!!"
