TOO LEGIT TO QUIT Federline, Kaplan (Photo: Getty Images) Kevin Federline might be laying relatively low in the wake of his ex Britney Spears' paparazzi and court circus, but his handlers and lawyer (seen over the weekend mugging for the paps) are making the most of the situation, according to an e-mail obtained by Radar.

In a Jan. 26 exchange involving Federline reps DMand Entertainment and his attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, a payment in the neighborhood of $150,000 is brought up in reference to a meeting with a television channel. Dan Dymtrow of DMand replies, "Isn't the $150k range a little low for Kevin to do this? Especially if Britney's random cousin Alli Sims got in the $250k range..." (Sims didn't get $250,000 for an interview—or even a first-class plane ticket, we're told.)

A source close to the legal wrangling tells Radar that the interview in question would not even cover the Spears drama. For the money, "he could get a generic interview about his singing and acting career," the source says.

Wait. He acts?

UPDATE: Elliot Mintz returned Radar's call to say he was unaware of any offer made to Federline for a TV interview but said K-Fed has been very accessible. Asked if he thought Britney's drama had made Federline more valuable, Mintz said, "I think it might have made him more newsworthy."
