(Newser) – Britney Spears is battling her ex over a $1 million legal bill related to the custody fight over their two sons. The court held off yesterday on ruling on the fees, and instead ordered Spears to stick to a $1,500-a-week spending limit, reports Reuters. Spears' attorney argued that the fees for both sides charged to Britney—who has been ordered to pay former hubby Kevin Federline's legal expenses—should be slashed to no more than $175,000.

Federline's attorney, who charges $600 an hour, said the fees were justified because the case is exceptionally complicated. But Spears' lawyer said Federline was using legal fee money for personal expenses, citing a $2,000 tip on a $365 restaurant bill. Meanwhile, CBS confirmed that Spears will make a cameo on an upcoming episode of How I Met Your Mother.
