The forged papers stated that Christopher Federline was the "true father" of the pop star's oldest son, Sean Preston, whom she and Christopher's brother, Kevin Federline welcomed seven years ago. The plaintiff also asked for a restraining order against Spears, alleging that she had stolen his credit card and then blackmailed and harassed him.
The Federline family has now reportedly launched a private investigation into the matter, to find out how Riches obtained confidential information about Kevin and how he was able to so accurately forge Christopher's signature.
Riches has a long, demented history of similar crimes. He was most recently arrested for posing as Adam Lanza's uncle, giving interviews to media gathered outside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, where Lanza killed 26 people on Dec. 12. The conman is also serving five years probation for conspiracy and wire fraud. TheSmokingGun.com further reports that Riches filed hundreds of fake lawsuits from prison.
