In these tough economic times, it’s not unusual to hear tales of financial woe. After all, those big bills and shrinking incomes make for a tough balancing act. Just ask Kevin Federline. Yes, according to the National Enquirer, even Britney Spears’ infamous ex struggles to keep his booze tabs and bodyguards’ salaries in the budget.
Granted, K-Fed’s budget is bigger than average, thanks to Spears. The magazine estimates Federline’s current Brit-based monthly income at $40,000, including $20,000 in support payments intended for the couple’s children. But one source revealed that’s still not enough to keep Federline in the lifestyle he’s grown accustomed to.
“Kevin has blown through millions of dollars,” the source said. “When he and Britney divorced, Kevin continued the superstar lifestyle, and he spends all the money that he gets.”
Where does it all go? Well, Federline’s food bill alone allegedly runs over $2,000 a month. Add that to the thousands it takes to pay for housing expenses, nannies, and the aforementioned bar bills and bodyguards and there just isn’t anything left over.

Joe Jonas responds to Swift
Country darling Taylor Swift isn’t the only one who can write a no holds barred breakup ballad.
A report in StarPulse reveals the Jonas Brothers have responded to Swift’s “Forever and Always” with a feud-worthy new single of their own called “Paranoid.”
Swift, who claimed Joe Jonas broke off their relationship in a crushing 27-second phone call last year, lyrically lashed out at her ex-boyfriend, singing, “Was I out of line? / Did I say something way too honest? / That made you run and hide like a scared little boy?”
Tough talk, but “Forever and Always” seems downright mild compared to the Jonas Brothers' take on it. The lyrics to “Paranoid” include such femme-fearing lines as, “Caught in a nightmare / Can't wake up/ That's why my ex is still my ex / I never trust a word she says / I'm running all the background checks / And she's freaking out.”
Dish on the fly
Despite her husband’s high hopes, “Partridge Family” mom Shirley Jones won’t appear in Playboy magazine any time soon. Marty Ingels, proudly told the New York Post’s Page Six that his actress-wife is “still drop-dead gorgeous, and at the age of 75, a natural beauty.” No arguments there, but it seems he forgot to run his “sensational” pictorial idea past the Playboy powers-that-be. “We are not in talks with Shirley Jones to pose for Playboy,” a magazine rep told Access Hollywood. … After teasing fans with the tidbit that someone in her famous family had plastic surgery, Kim Kardashian finally spilled all the details on her blog. “I can reveal that it was my step dad Bruce (Jenner)!” the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star wrote. “Twenty-five years ago, Bruce was ill-advised by a doctor to have a partial facelift and a nose job. Unfortunately, the result wasn't what Bruce had hoped for and for years since then he has been the victim of cruel taunts from the media.” Now, after going under the knife once more, Jenner can finally put his best face forward. “The results are amazing,” Kardashian assured fans.
