$25K a Month Per Child?!

According to this MSNBC story, Britney Spears has agreed to pay Kevin Federline $25,000 per month PER CHILD in child support payments:

Spears will pay $25,000 a month in child support for each of the couple’s two children until they reach 18. He also gets custody of the boys four days a week.
This doesn't even include the salary that K-Fed would earn for working, should he ever actually work. Or should that work ever be of high enough quality to qualify as "earned" which, given how crappy his music is, may never actually happen.

Furthermore, he's only having the kids for HALF THE WEEK! That would mean in essence that these white trash refugees are spending $600,000 a year PER CHILD to raise them.

And you wonder why people in Hollywood seem out of touch with reality. I bet if you added up all the money my parents spent raising all seven of their children, it wouldn't add up to $600,000. Total. For all seven, to get them from birth to 18.

If that's how much raising babies costs in Hollywood, I can't blame Angeline Jolie for carting her clan to Africa -- it's GOT to be cheaper.

I'm looking forward to the books these kids will eventually (ghost) write. Growing Up Spears.

This last assumes they will survive to adulthood.

Given the amount of ruckus K-Fed and his lawyers could have raised surrounding Ms. Spears' recent behavior and her fitness as a mother, it doesn't surprise me that she was rather generous in the settlement. The child support is probably just "shut up" money.

Or "just shut up" money.

I can't believe I've spent even this small bit of my limited metal capacity thinking about Britney and K-Fed. I could have been curing cancer or solving that fusion problem... oh well. :-)
