Who could ever forget Britney Spears‘ highly publicized marriage to Kevin Federline? Although the couple divorced in 2007, they are forever bound by their two sons Sean and Jayden. While Spears’ personal life has been a subject of interest in recent years due to her now-terminated conservatorship, Federline has mostly remained outside the public eye. Find out what Kevin Federline is doing now.
Kevin Federline Is Britney Spears’ Ex-Husband
From 2004 to 2006, Britney Spears was married to dancer Kevin Federline, aka K-Fed. The relationship was controversial for so many reasons, from the speed at which they got hitched (Spears dated him for all of three months) to the fact that Federline’s ex-wife Shar Jackson was pregnant with their second child when Spears said “I do.”
But the couple didn’t shy away from coverage of their whirlwind romance—in fact, they chronicled their adventures in the reality series Britney and Kevin: Chaotic. (Spears told the Telegraph in 2013 that the show was “probably the worst thing I’ve done in my career.”)
In September 2005, four days before their first anniversary, Spears gave birth to the couple’s first child, son Sean Preston. Less than a year later, the couple welcomed another boy, Jayden James, into the world.
But by November 2006—only a couple of months after her second son’s arrival—Spears filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The two quickly agreed on a settlement, as well as custody arrangements for the children. However, things didn’t go as smoothly as they looked on paper. This marked the beginning of a dark period for Spears.
According to the documentary Framing Britney Spears, the performer had her infamous head-shaving meltdown after Federline refused to give her access to the kids. Shortly after, when Spears had custody of her sons but refused to hand them off on time, she was put on a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold at a Los Angeles hospital. It was at this point that her father Jamie was designated her conservator, which lasted until November of 2021.
What Is Kevin Federline Doing Now?
Following his split from the world’s biggest pop star, Federline made various attempts to stay in the spotlight. He tried acting in commercials (Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company) and TV shows (One Tree Hill, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), DJed at casino nightclubs, and even took another shot at a rap career. Check out the music video for his 2016 single “Hollywood”:
Federline even gave a shot at professional wrestling, appearing alongside John Cena on WWE’s Monday Night Raw. When that didn’t pan out, he joined the 2010 cast of VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club.
But why work when he can be a full-time dad? In 2018, Federline revealed that he earned $3,000 per month and received $20,000 in monthly child support payments from Spears. He requested a higher figure and his ex-wife agreed to pay him “thousands more.”
Federline also provided Sean and Jayden with step-siblings. In 2013, he married his rec league bowling buddy Victoria Prince in Las Vegas.
The couple has two daughters: Jordan Kay, born two years before the nuptials, and Peyton Marie, who entered the world in 2014. Including his kids with ex-wife Shar Jackson (daughter Kori Madison and son Kaleb Michael), K-Fed now has a total of six kids.
Despite their rough patches, it seems Federline and Spears have a solid co-parenting relationship these days. People reported in 2011 that Federline and Prince sometimes attended events with Spears and her ex-boyfriend Jason Trawick for the sake of the kids. He even spoke out in support of Britney during her battle to end her conservatorship. And despite not being invited to Spears’ wedding to Sam Asghari, Federline is “happy for Britney and wish her and Sam all the best going forward.”
