In what is probably the report of an announced divorce, Britney Spears officially requested the dissolution of her marriage of two years with Kevin Federline, according to what was reported this Tuesday on the website TMZ.com. Documents obtained from that source show that the singer filed the petition this Tuesday in a Los Angeles court, and also requested custody of their sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Spears, 24 years old, cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the separation and it appears that she has been separated from the singer since this Monday. The blonde has demanded that each of the parties involved pay their respective attorneys’ fees and declined to request support from her spouse.

Since 2006, rumors were circulating of the couple’s imminent separation, despite having had their second son at the beginning of September of this year. The last time they were seen together was last weekend in New York, although suspicions were raised when the blonde was absent from all the promotional events for Federline’s recent edition of the CD Playing With Fire. With this news, no doubt some people will begin collecting on their bets.
