Kevin Earl Federline, aka K-Fed, is an American ex-backup dancer born on March 21, 1978. The two years he spent married to pop star Britney Spears and the subsequent custody fight garnered him widespread fame. His fame led to the 2006 release of Playing with Fire, widely derided by critics. Since then, he’s had a lot of TV appearances and was a regular fixture in music videos until 2008.
Kevin Federline Early Life
On March 21, 1978, in Fresno, California, Kevin Earl Federline was born to car mechanic Mike and former bank teller Julie (née Story), both from Oregon. At the age of eight, Federline’s parents split up and he relocated to Carson City, Nevada, with his mother. When he was eleven, he and his brother Chris moved back to Fresno to live with their father. Federline left high school in the ninth grade to pursue dance with the non-profit Dance Empowerment (she eventually earned a degree in General Educational Development).
Kevin Federline’s Career
He worked as a backup dancer for various artists, including Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child, Pink, and LFO, for an extended period. Shortly after his wedding to Spears in 2006, Federline released a digital-only song titled “Y’all Ain’t Ready” and a CD single titled “PopoZo.” Both tracks received negative reviews. Therefore, they have left off his first album. Instead, “Lose Control” was his first official single, debuting on the Fox network’s Teen Choice Awards event in late summer 2006. Playing with Fire, his first album was released on October 31, 2006; critics criticized it.
Blue Marlin, based in San Francisco, has signed Federline as a model for their Five Star Vintage line. The first advertising campaign launched in August 2006 and was continued through the holiday season. For fall 2006, the line he modeled for Macy’s, Kitson in Los Angeles, and Lord & Taylor was the best-selling line at those stores.
Federline promoted his new album, Playing with Fire, and took part in an angle on WWE television. He initially made an appearance on WWE Raw on October 16, 2006, and again on October 23, 2006, where he and WWE Champion John Cena got into a brawl. The following week, he helped Johnny Nitro in his bout against John Cena by entering the ring. Federline slapped Cena after he got in his face.
Kevin Federline’s Personal Life
Relationship With Shar Jackson
His daughter Kori Madison Federline (born July 31, 2002), and son Kaleb Michael Jackson Federline, were conceived during his engagement to actress Shar Jackson (born July 20, 2004). The couple broke up just before their son was born. Federline started dating pop star Britney Spears after the breakup. Jackson maintained a cordial connection with Federline, admiring his parenting, despite his earlier comment that the end of Federline and Spears’ relationship “wasn’t like simply splitting up a romance.
The Britney Spears Wedding
Federline and Spears began dating for three months before announcing their engagement in July 2004. They filed for formal marriage on October 6, 2004, and were married in a nonreligious ceremony on September 18 at Spears’ home in Studio City, California. Considering that Federline began dating Spears while his ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson was expecting the couple’s second child, the media gave their relationship a great deal of attention, with some even calling Federline a “gold digger” for leaving Jackson.

At the same time, she was pregnant to be with Spears. Federline was a frequent criticism and a widely loathed celebrity due to the scandal surrounding his separation from Jackson, the controversy surrounding his relationship with Spears, the claims that he was a “money digger,” and the discrepancy in renown between him and Spears.
Divorce Settlement With Britney Spears
After dating for only three months, Spears and Federline tied the knot on September 18, 2004. On March 29, 2007, less than three years after they separated, they officially formalized their divorce.
In a statement at the time, Federline’s lawyer Michael Sands said, “The parties reached an agreement which was a global settlement on all matters of their marriage including child custody.”

At the time, a Reuters source disputed claims that Federline would earn $1.3 million as part of the settlement. According to the reports, if it weren’t for an “airtight prenup” drafted by Spears’ attorneys, Federline would have been entitled to more of the divorce settlement.
When their parents divorced, both kids were younger than two, and the couple ultimately decided to share custody. In a court judgment made in October 2007, physical possession of the children was awarded to Kevin Federline for reasons that were not made public.
In 2008, when she was repeatedly hospitalized for a psychiatric assessment, she entered her widely known conservatorship.
