Though reports have been widely circulated on the Internet today that Kevin Federline has asked his lawyer to request more child support money from the wannabe rapper’s ex-wife, Britney Spears, the legal eagle himself, Mark Vincent Kaplan, has issued a statement denying these rumors.

"Every two months, rumors have been raised in the media that Mr. Federline’s lawyers are about to go into court to get more money for child support," Kaplan said in a statement released to TV’s Extra. "If Mr. Federline had wanted to increase child support, it would be very easy to achieve and would have been requested long before now. There has not been and is not now a request before the court for a modification of child support. Mr. Federline’s purpose in bringing this action continues to be one that is based upon the best interest of the children as his highest priority."

It was recently decided that Britney would be able to have custody of her two young sons with Kevin during the Christmas holiday. Failing another legal crisis — which, in this case, is quite likely to happen — the former couple’s lawyers are not expected back in the courtroom until after the new year.
