Looks like K-Fed is making good on his threat to hit up Britney Spears for big bucks.

Kevin Federline turned down a $25 million divorce settlement from the “Oops, I Did It Again” singer, according to Star.

At one point, Federline was reportedly looking for $50 million from his estranged wife and the mother of two of his children — but the source insists it’s not greed — but love of their kids.

“Kevin says that Britney offered him $10 million to walk away from their marriage and to relinquish custody of their kids, but he just laughed. Then she came back with $20 million which he turned down too,” a source told the tab “Now he says she’s offering a whopping $25 million, and that’s her final offer. He told her to take a hike! He loves his two little boys, and there’s no way he’s going to disappear from their lives.”

Open your heart
Now Madonna is like a newlywed.

Despite rumors that her marriage is in trouble, the “Like A Virgin” crooner reportedly has renewed her vows to hubby Guy Ritchie.

Adopting little David Banda from Africa, apparently, has worked wonders for the couple.

“David has brought a new joy to their lives and given them a spark,” according to a source, who says that the couple is also planning a second honeymoon this summer.

A “pal of Guy’s” told Life and Style Weekly: “David has made Madonna realize how much she wants her family to stay a strong unit.”

Notes from all over
Even fans of Mariah Carey are commenting on how heavily retouched the singer looks on the cover of the upcoming Playboy. “That picture looks like it was airbrushed in a wind tunnel,” quips one.  . . . Jermaine Jackson is starting a campaign against bullying. Jackson, the 51-year-old brother of the “Thriller” singer, made headlines in the U.K., where he was seen as a staunch ally of a reality show contestant who was the subject of bullying and racially insensitive comments by another contestant. “He’ll be touring schools, talking about the issues of bullying,” says a source.  . . . Don’t believe those reports that “Casino Royale” is being shown completely uncensored in China. Dame Judi Dench says that she was asked to re-record this line for the Bond flick’s release in the communist country. “Christ, I miss the Cold War.” “I wasn’t allowed to say that for China,” Dench told Canada’s CTV. “I had to re-dub it. It was: ‘God, I miss the old times.’ Not quite the same thing.”
