Britney Spears challenges $1.1 mil in legal fees



Tbdbritneyspears031008 While you thought Britney Spears’ fortune was safe and sound in the hands of her dad Jamie and attorney Andrew Wallet, TMZ tells us that the poptard’s legal fees are mounting — to the tune of $1.1 million.

Her conservators have filed documents challenging some $500,000 demanded by Keven Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, for work performed from October 2007 to February 2008 (the court has ruled she must pay K-Fed’s “reasonable” attorney fees, but that doesn’t sound reasonable to us).

Also, Brat’s own lawyers, Trope and Trope, are asking her for $600,000, which may or may not be defensible, seeing as how Britney couldn’t be bothered to go to her own hearings the last few months. Either way, this has turned into a pretty expensive custody battle.
