Britney Spears' estranged husband Kevin Federline is on such a tight budget since he broke up with the pop star, he tried to return some clothing she bought for him and collect the cash. In late December (06) the former back-up dancer tried to return nearly $15,000 (GBP7,700) worth of pricey Libertine and Mastermind Japan clothes that Spears purchased for him. According to American publication In Touch, Federline returned the items at exclusive Los Angeles store Maxfield, which included a jacket that cost $1620 (GBP831). The 28-year-old wanted a cash refund for the merchandise, which still had the original tags, but when the clerk refused, he settled on a store credit. A source explains, "He was looking for pocket money. Now he's going to try to sell the credit." Federline may have more cash soon - he is rumoured to be appearing in a high-paying ad during the US Super Bowl in February (07).
