After two years, Britney Spears has finally called it quits with husband and rapper wannabe Kevin Federline. The pop princess cited irreconcilable differences as the grounds for the divorce. She filed for divorce the day after showing up unexpectedly at Letterman in a short black dress.
Britney Spear’s first marriage, to childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander, barely lasted 55 hours. Talk about a “quickie” in Las Vegas. It ended in annulment. This marriage at least lasted two years.
This union was anything but a fairytale. The well documented union shows the celebrity and Kevin Federline going from sweet and dewy eyed to simply tearful and full of fights. They even had a reality show, aptly called Britney and Kevin: Chaotic.
Kevin Federline was anything but an ideal prince. Shortly before he married Britney Spears, he split from his girlfriend Shar Jackson who was pregnant with his second child. The general perceives him as nothing more than a gold digger, out to use Britney’s success and wealth to give him a good life and later a career. Prior to meeting her, he was a back up dancer to such artists as Justin Timberlake, Pink and Michael Jackson. His rap/hip-hop CD has not been well received at all.
The pop princess hopes that the divorce will go smoothly and quickly. The papers she filed states that she and Federline have no community assets; which basically means that they had a prenuptial agreement. Britney Spears has chosen high-profile divorce lawyer Laura Wasser who has represented Nick Lachey, Angelina Jolie, Stevie Wonder and Kiefer Sutherland in their divorces.
Britney Spears has asked for full custody of her children – 1 year old Sean Preston and infant Jayden James.
