So, how much did it really cost Britney Spears to marry and divorce the wonderful Kevin Federline?
Well, we could debate that point for years but, regarding legal fees, it came to about $417,000!
The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that Britney's meltdown/comeback has sucked $2.7 million in legal fees out of her fortune -- with a good part of it going to the split from her ex and their custody battle.
Jamie Spears' lawyers filed a document Monday spilling the bad news. Fees were split among 17 lawyers and firms -- including a cool million just for Britney's own legal representation. That amount, said the attorneys, covered the "complex and challenging" aspects of getting Brit back on top.
"Since the initiation of the conservatorship, as a result of the concerted efforts of Mr. Spears as well as the professionals involved, all aspects of Ms. Spears's life have been stabilized and continue to improve," lawyer Geraldine Wyle wrote. She added that the singer's mental health continued "to mend," that she had regained "substantial visitation" with her children and that her career "has been revitalized."
