13 Women That Paid Outrageous Divorce Settlements
1. Britney Spears
The pop singer, Britney Spears, divorced Kevein Federlin, her husband in November 2006. There was a prenuptial agreement in place that she would have custody of their two children if the divorce finally sees the light of day. When she allegedly began engaging in some strange behaviors, she however, lost custody of the children. She was ordered by the court to pay Federline $20,000 for child support.
Women alimony is gaining popularity by the day, though still heavily weighted towards men, but the slight change in trend cannot be swept under the carpet.
The settlement session was at Laura Wasser’s office– Spears attorney’s office in Century City, California. The lawyers of both parties deliberated for five hours and they came to a reasonable conclusion concerning their marriage and child custody.
Federline took over custody of the children just before she checked into rehab. Sean Preston was 18-months old while Jayden James was 6-months old back then.
Since Spears was a higher-earning spouse at that time, coupled with her erratic behavior, the court her no choice to award Federline the custody of the kids. Women alimony will take its full course in this case.
If this trend continues, women alimony will in no distant time be the order of the day.
