Britney Spears drew up legal documents before her marriage last year (SEP04) to prevent husband KEVIN FEDERLINE inheriting any of her fortune in case she dies before drawing up a will.

The TOXIC singer's mother LYNN, sister JAMIE LYNN and brother BRYAN would take control of a trust fund holding her millions, according to British newspaper the DAILY MIRROR.

This latest revelation is further evidence Britney is taking every care to safeguard her hard-earned fortune following her brief marriage to childhood friend JASON ALEXANDER - she also made Federline sign a pre-nuptial agreement before their wedding.

A legal expert says, "It looks as though she was planning to use the trust to ring-fence her assets before getting married."
