Spears currently writes a $20,000 check to Federline each month, according to The Blast, which comes out to $240,000 a year. The money is intended to benefit their shared sons, Sean, 12, and Jayden, 11.
Spears’ legal team received a letter from attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, and while the asking price has not been confirmed, The Blast did say he’s looking for a major increase in money. The news agency also pointed out that Federline has been supportive of Spears over the years, going so far as to travel to shows to allow her to see the children.
Federline’s public persona has been quiet over the past decade. He made an appearance on WWE’s Monday Night Raw back in 2006, getting involved in an angle with John Cena, was a participant of the seventh season of Celebrity Fit Club, and had a small role in the film American Pie: The Book of Love in 2009.
He first became romantically linked to former volleyball player Victoria Prince in 2008. Their first child, Jordan Kay, was born in 2011 and the pair married two years later. They’ve since gone to have a second child together.
