Britney and Kevin are officially divorced

Laura Wasser, Britney’s divorce lawyer, has confirmed that Britney and Kevin Federline are officially divorced, with the proceedings being finalised today. Wasser said that Britney was “OK” with the terms of the divorce (Federline is receiving spousal support), but would have liked to have had more time with her children, as opposed to the joint custody arrangement that has been put in place. The terms of the divorce have been kept private, as Wasser fears, if the document becomes public domain, the media would have “a greater ability to ascertain the physical whereabouts of the children.”

She added “such information greatly increases the chances that the actions of the media could threaten the safety of the minor children by, for example, causing a traffic accident or by exposing the minor children to criminals who might target the minor children for financial gain.”
