A court has ordered that Britney Spears must pay $120,000 in legal fees to her upstanding ex-husband, Kevin Federline, in their ongoing custody battle.
In documents released Tuesday, L.A. County Commissioner Scott Gordon told Spears to pay all but $40,000 of K-Fed's stated $160,000 in legal fees.
The decision was made based on the former couple's income - as a "recording artist," Britney Spears claims average earnings of over $737,000 a month, but "self employed" FedEx has stated he has no net income after expenses.
Kevin Federline currently receives from Spears $15,000 in child support, and $20,000 a month in spousal support, which expires on November 15.
Not a good day for Britney Spears, who in addition to getting socked with Kevin's legal bills, parked her Mercedes illegally in a handicapped spot.
Apparently in a huge rush to get her $29 fake tan session underway at her home away from home - Tanning Plus in Studio City, Calif. - Britney Spears just couldn't muster the strength to park legally a few feet away.
Enough to face a $500 fine? Maybe that's why she hustled out of the store with her "cousin" Alli Sims, 26, quickly after a 20-minute fake n' bake job.
Oh, and despite previous reports this morning by The Hollywood Gossip, it looks like Britney's new album, Blackout, didn't top the charts after all.
Blackout sold roughly 290,000 copies in its first week, coming in at No. 2 on the charts behind The Eagles' Long Road Out of Eden, which sold 711,000.
By comparison, Carrie Underwood, who owes her fame to a 2005 American Idol win, sold 527,000 copies of Carnival Ride in the week of its release.
