K-Fed getting a bad rap over his legal bills?

Kevin Federline

Whether it was a $1,100 tip at an L.A. restaurant or a $2,000 tip at a Vegas strip club, Kevin Federline’s 2007 spending – detailed in recently released financial documents – has critics buzzing over his lavish lifestyle. But his lawyer says they need to look at the bigger picture before passing judgment.

“He’s totally getting a bad rap here,” according to Federline attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, who says the “court of public opinion” is focusing on a few outstanding expenditures. “It seems like an unnecessary attempt to knock him when there’s really no basis to do that.”

Kaplan claims that even the $2,000 Scores strip club tip has a logical explanation. “That was for a group of people for a friend’s bachelor party,” says Kaplan, who adds that it wasn’t a tip: “That’s just how the club categorized it.”

Many of Federline’s tips are less extravagant. During a September trip to Fat Tony’s Italian Restaurant in North Carolina, he tipped $10.00 on a $41.69 bill.

Federline’s Double Life
The papers show two sides to K-Fed. Last August, he spent $304.30 to fly to Las Vegas on low-cost Southwest Airlines. (“He doesn’t fly private and more often he drives,” says Kaplan.) But once he was there, he didn’t cut corners. Over the next three days, he spent $3,038.69 at the Hard Rock Beach Club, $3,863.50 at Tao, and $10,220.65 at The Venetian.

Still, some of his spending is less rock star and more suburban dad. Routine charges at Target ($115.10), IKEA ($246.66) and Albertson’s grocery store ($405.75) fill his credit card statements, interspersed with occasional shopping sprees at toy stores. (In May, he dropped $2,167.52 in one day at Toys R Us and Babies R Us.)

Kaplan also disagrees with Britney Spears’ legal team’s argument that the larger expenses suggest Federline should foot some of the custody-battle legal bills that he’s asked her to pay.

“Don’t focus on whether he spent too much money going on a vacation or going to a restaurant,” says Kaplan. “Focus – as the court does – on was he reasonable having to incur these [court] fees? The answer is a resounding yes.” Kaplan says that the legal fees were “built up quite frankly by the conduct of [Spears]” during some of her court-delaying, widely-publicized antics.

“I don’t think the court should be distracted by the fact that he went to Las Vegas and spent $1,000 or $5,000,” says Kaplan. “It’s not relevant.”

Kevin Federline denies getting back together with Britney Spears

Kevin Federline

Kevin Federline has rebuked reports he is to whisk his ex-wife Britney Spears off on a secret Hawaiian getaway in a bid to save their fractured marriage.

The former couple has been locked in a bitter divorce and custody battle since splitting in 2006, but Star claimed they are set for a reconciliation after spending time together over Easter.

A source told the magazine, “Kevin wants to take Britney away to see if there is anything to salvage between them. When he suggested it to her, she told him she was ready to go anytime he was.”

However, according to TheCelebrityTruth.com, a representative for the wannabe rapper/dancer insists the reports are “not true”.

K-Fed’s lawyer: “Full recovery reports are premature”

Britney Spears

Kevin Federline’s lawyer says that with the help of father Jamie Spears, Britney Spears is heading in the right direction. But he urged restraint in saying the pop star is already fully recovered.

“Jamie is doing a really good job,” Mark Vincent Kaplan tells People. “There was a situation and that seems to be stabilized. Does that mean she’s cured? Of course not.”

Kaplan has noticed that the Spears’s negative press has diminished noticeably, and that her successes – from her appearance on How I Met Your Mother to reports Tuesday that she is working again with former manager Larry Rudolph – are making news right now.

He calls Jamie Spears’ steps to improve Britney’s well-being and diffuse her once tumultuous lifestyle “smart,” adding that, “Obviously before Jamie, it wasn’t a question of what was going to happen – it was a question of when.”

A healthy, happy Spears is something that Federline has always yearned for, says Kaplan. As for his own professional interest in the Spears case, which is no longer dominating Los Angeles’s family court system? Says Kaplan: “I look forward to the time when I can be bored.”

Kevin Federline: “I will always be there for Britney”

Kevin Federline

Kevin Federline has vowed that he will always love and be there for Britney Spears, even though they’re not together anymore. He says that he will “always love the mothers of my children”, referring also to ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson, who he dumped while pregnant for the poptard.

He said, “I will always love the mothers of my children, and I will always be there for both of them. I believe that any good energy I put out there brings more good energy into my own life. The relationships with my kids and family will last my whole life and are the most important to me.”

And Federline is determined that his children with Spears will grow up in a happy, stable environment.

He says, “Their needs define my schedule every day. It is so very important to me that my children will always know and never question, that no matter what happens, they have a mommy and daddy who love them very much.”

Is he trying too hard to look like superdad?

Kevin Federline

Kevin Federline partied in his birthday suit but ended up with cake on his face as he celebrated turning 30 in Las Vegas.

Britney Spears’ ex got all dressed up for the bash at Pure nightclub. But he wasn’t looking too smart when a pal smeared a piece of his huge birthday cake all over his face. It didn’t seem to spoil K-Fed’s big night though as he laughed and joked with guests and posed for the cameras.

The former backing dancer’s guestlist included his parents, brother and friends. Even his ex Shar Jackson – who he dumped while she was pregnant for Britney – was invited.
