According to documents obtained by CelebTV.com, not only did lawyers for Kevin Federline recently make a request to the court that K-Fed’s ex, beleaguered pop star Britney Spears, foot the bill for the wannabe rapper’s legal costs in their ongoing custody war — but the judge actually agreed to it!

Citing the difference in their incomes (i.e., she’s rich and he’s… well, he isn’t exactly raking in the royalties from his 1-year-old album Playing With Fire), the court issued an order on Tuesday that Britney must pony upwards of $120,000 in legal charges for her ex, whose only current income is the $20,000/month child support Britney pays.

This all brings up a few questions: Isn’t $20,000/month ($240,000/year) a substantial amount of money? At least enough to pay your own legal bills? And since this same $20,000/month is coming from Britney, wouldn’t she really be indirectly paying his bills anyway?
