Kevin Federline is requesting up to ‘three times more’ child support from Britney Spears – Lawyer

#BritneySpears‘ ex-husband #KevinFederline is requesting more child support for their two sons, claiming he makes less than 1 percent of what Spears does in court documents filed on Tuesday and first obtained by The Blast. 

The father of six — who shares sons #SeanPreston, 12, and #JaydenJames, 11, with the pop star — claims he is currently earning $3,000 a month and receives $20,000 ($10,000 per son) each month from Spears in child support. Federline claims in the documents that Spears “earns in excess of $34,000,000 per year.”

“We think the reasonable needs for the children while they would be in Kevin’s custody is probably three times what he’s currently receiving,” Federline’s attorney — celebrity divorce lawyer #MarkVincentKaplan — tells PEOPLE of how much more child support he estimates Spears should pay his client.

A rep for Spears is yet to speak on this matter though a source close to the singer said, “Kevin wants a raise in money and he can’t account for where the $20,000 is going.”

Federline filed an Income and Expense Declaration request to review Spears’s financial documents to ascertain her net earnings and how they would inform her child support payments to him; a hearing is expected in August.

“We had attempted to see if we could negotiate a voluntary increase in child support over the last several months, and we were not successful,” Kaplan says. “We’re still hoping to resolve this without judicial intervention, but that’s something that is going to be a decision they will make.”

Federline says that one of the reasons why he is requesting more money is because he is “no longer able to perform as a dancer due to my age, and I have not been as successful in putting out new music as I was in 2008.” He further states that he is “less of a name and less in demand than I was in 2008, which has negatively affected my income.”
