Pop princess Britney Spears is facing a battle with husband Kevin Federline over custody of the couple's two sons.
The 24-year-old singer filed for divorce from the 28-year-old dancer earlier this week, claiming custody of one-year-old Sean Preston and two-month-old Jayden James.
However, Federline has now filed his own papers seeking custody of the kids, as well as a share of Britney's multi-million dollar fortune.
The couple married just two years ago and Spears is citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split.
