Britney Spears files for divorce went down to the Los Angeles County courthouse, pulled the papers and has them posted exclusively. Spears is using celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, whose clients have included Angelina Jolie, Nick Lachey and Kiefer Sutherland. The papers confirm that Spears and Kevin Federline, the father of her two children, were not officially married until a couple of weeks after their supposed lavish wedding in September 2004. Go Fug Yourself puts it in perspective.
