When a Hollywood couple makes the hard choice to split up, most of the times it’s the wife who walks away practically set for life. However, these 15 famous women were forced to cough up the alimony when the marriage was over.
Britney Spears shocked the world by marrying her childhood friend during a night of partying in Las Vegas. That union was quickly annulled and Spears found herself walking down the aisle months later, this time to her backup dancer, Kevin Federline. Her second marriage lasted a bit longer — three years — and for his time as Mr. Britney Spears, Federline received $40,000 a month in alimony. Federline is reportedly content to remain a single man in order to continue cashing in his monthly checks. Federline was originally awarded custody of their two boys but after Spears took some time off to work on personal issues, they now share joint custody.
