Britney Spears has been making headlines lately for her ongoing conservatorship battle and her recent engagement to Sam Asghari. But while the pop star is busy fighting for her freedom and planning her wedding, her ex-husband Kevin Federline is reportedly packing his bags and moving to Hawaii with their two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.
The news of the move came as a surprise to many fans, who wondered why Federline would want to relocate his family from California to Hawaii. Some speculated that he had a job opportunity there, while others suggested that he wanted to give his kids a more peaceful and private life away from the media scrutiny.
But there is another theory that has been circulating online, and it has to do with money. According to some sources, Federline is allegedly trying to take advantage of Hawaii’s child support laws, which are more generous than California’s.
In Hawaii, child support can last until the age of 23, as long as the child is enrolled in an accredited college, university, vocational school, or trade school. In California, child support usually ends when the child turns 18 or graduates from high school, whichever comes first.
Federline has been receiving $20,000 per month from Spears for each of their sons since 2008, when he was granted sole custody of them. He also gets additional money from Spears for their school, insurance, and clothing expenses. In 2018, he even asked for a raise in his child support payments, claiming that his income had decreased and that Spears’ had increased.
Some fans believe that Federline is planning to move to Hawaii before his sons turn 18, so that he can continue receiving child support from Spears for a longer period of time. They also think that he is trying to prevent Spears from seeing her kids more often, as she would have to travel farther and spend more money to visit them.
Federline has not confirmed or denied these rumors, but he did address them briefly in a video obtained by Page Six. When asked by a paparazzo if he was moving to Hawaii for child support reasons, he said: “A lot of people say a lot of stupid things.” He also remained silent when asked if he would allow Spears to see their sons before they move.
Spears’ lawyer has confirmed that she gave permission for the move, but it is unclear how she feels about it or how it will affect her relationship with her kids. She has not commented publicly on the matter, but she did share some photos of her recent trip to Disneyland with her fiancé and her sons on Instagram.
