Britney puts Kevin on budget
13:30 14 March 2006
Britney Spears has put husband Kevin Federline on a strict budget.
The singer's other half is so well known for flashing the cash that he has been nicknamed 'Spenderline' by friends.
But Britney - who has a baby son, Sean Preston, with Kevin - has decided to put a stop to his extravagant tastes.
A source told America's New York Post newspaper: "Each month he will be given a certain amount of money for personal things like clothing, nightclubs, booze and day-to-day activities.
"Any big items like cars or trips that go over the allowance, need to be approved by Britney herself."
The source added: "She is trying to show Kevin that he needs to be responsible and curb his out-of-control spending habits."
The budget further fuels rumours that Britney and Kevin - who are reportedly expecting their second child - are having marriage troubles.
A source at a Maui hotel, where the pop beauty was recently staying, claims to have overheard the singer lashing out at her spouse.
The insider said: "I was in the elevator with Britney, and she was screaming at Kevin on her phone that she had waited in the suite all day for him to call and couldn't sit in there any longer."
Britney's spokesperson has so far refused to comment on the latest claims.
