Breaking up is hard to do. Just ask Kevin Federline.

Kevin Federline Album Playing With Fire  The former Mr. Spears ‘fessed up about his split from Britney Spears during a recent appearance on The Bonnie Hunt Show, admitting that their divorce sent him in to a downward spiral that saw him fighting depression and getting up close and personal with his couch. 

K-Fed’s weight ballooned after his bachelor status was reinstated, partly because of the fact that he was drinking up to a case of pop a day. 

I didn’t drink water, that was all I drank,” he said. “That was my coffee and my candy.”

(Um, ew. Despite the fact that there was a period of time during my pregnancy where I was able to pack back several Barq’s over the course of an afternoon, the thought of consuming a entire case of pop in one day makes my teeth ache.)

It sounds as though his thirties have been a bit disenchanting for K-Fed; the former dancer (remember when he was Britney’s backup dancer? When he was buff? omg, did I just say that?) put performing on hold in favour of lazing about on the couch, eating junk food (which, let’s be honest, doesn’t sound half bad).

I hit 30 years old, I stop dancing, started eating and sitting on the couch playing with the kids here and there,” he said. “I got lazier and lazier, and fatter and fatter.”

I’m no fan of K-Fed’s, but I kind of like that he’s going on the record to say that his divorce from Britney was hard on him. It makes him seem less young, jackass celebrity and more regular guy to me. And it’s nice to know I’m not the only one who has drowned their sorrows in sweet, sugary beverages and empty calories in the wake of a painful breakup.

He's on this season's Celebrity Fit Club (along with his pre-Britney ex, Shar Jackson), and it's completely weird to me that he seems... likable. I was not expecting that at all.

(Of course, I wasn't expecting to think that Sebastian Bach was funny, either. Knock me over with a feather. Thanks, VH1!)


We learn so much from VH1. It's like school, only better and more important.


I watch Fit Club and I agree: He seems like a soft spoken, normal enough kinda guy who got caught up in the whole whirlwind of celebrity.

But, he seems to be turning his life around and has lost a ton of weight. I so heart that show.

Plus Jay and Sebastian rock my world with the funny!


Whoa. Exactly how long was he on that couch drinking soda? I can totally sympathize with depression and finding comfort in sugar. I'm just a bit stunned by his chunk. To go from buff to bulbous must have taken some serious sofa surfing. 24 sodas a day? Does he have any teeth left? Did he start referring to himself as K-Fed, or did the media do it first? It's important in regard to how much empathy I can muster. I'm kidding. Kind of.


that does make him much more human and likable. for once we can see where he is coming from.


I just find it refreshing that some celebrity didn't find solace in drugs and alcohol. Get fat, you can get thin, and it's a lot easier than getting addicted and then getting clean. IMO
