At the top of CNN.com is a big Breaking News banner that reads:

"Britney Spears files for divorce from her husband Kevin Federline, citing irreconcilable differences."

That's all we know for now, but that sentence pretty much sums it up in a nutshell, doesn't it.

And really, is anyone surprised?

***There's more: Looks like TMZ.com got the scoop faster than you can say "firecrotch."

TMZ obtained the legal papers, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences." In her petition, Spears asks for both legal and physical custody of the couple's two children, one-year old Sean Preston and two-month old Jayden James, with Federline getting reasonable visitation rights. As for money, sources tell TMZ the couple, who married in Oct. 2004, has an iron-clad prenup. Not surprisingly, Spears is waiving her right to spousal support. She's also asking the judge to make each party pay their own attorney's fees.

The court papers are available on the site, too.
