Father of the year, Kevin Federline, recently got his ex, Britney Spears, to pay more of his legal bills, claiming poverty. But OK! has obtained court documents detailing some of K-Fed's more, shall we say, interesting expenses and, for a person in the hole, he sure gets around!

According to the legal docs, Kevin spent $50,489.71 over an eight-month period on hotel rooms and refreshments in Las Vegas.

In one day alone, K-Fed used his business card to spend $2,632.50 at TAO Beach (the pool club at the Venetian Hotel). On another night, he spent $2,862.60 at TAO nightclub. One day at the Hard Rock Beach Club cost him $3,008.33.

Then there was Kevin's rockin' New Year's Eve at the Vegas branch of upscale strip club chain Scores, where he racked up a $365 tab — and left a $2,000 tip!

Regarding his client's spending habits, K-Fed's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan tells OK!, "What Mr. Federline may have purchased for gifts for others, or entertaining and/or hosting parties is irrelevent, though obviously, and unfortunately, the other side tried to distract the court from what and how one should vacation."

So... if Kevin is able to spend so liberally, why is the court ordering Britney to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in her ex-hubby's legal bills?

"It's not just about need but about her conduct," Kaplan explains to OK!. "He would not have incurred fees but for the fact that he was seeking custody orders that were for the best of his kids."

Kaplan, citing the numerous emergency hearings in the custody battle, says that the court based its decision "not on how Mr. Federline may have spent his discretionary funds but, subsequently, on the fact that every dollar he incurred in attorney's fees, as stated in open court, was incurred because of his need to pursue orders to halt Ms. Spears from conduct which she should not have been engaging in."

In defending his client, Kaplan concludes, "The bottom line is that Mr. Federline has stepped up to the plate in a major way. More often than not, he's stood his ground on behalf of what was best for his kids. And that can't be denied. He's been there and has risen to the occasion, time and time again."

Well... just for giggles, here's a list of some of K-Fed's other "business" expenses listed under his production company, GooseNeck Productions.

Party House Liquor in Tarzana: $351

Encino Park Liquor: $103.62

Victoria's Secret: $106.67

Ann Taylor: $127.15

The Liquor Works: $168.23
