Report: Kevin Federline scraps reality show plans due to Britney chaos
By Christopher Rocchio, 02/07/2008
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline previously had no problem letting fans in on their lifestyle, but the current situation surrounding the pop princess is apparently just too chaotic for Federline to let reality cameras role again.
Federline has put the breaks on plans for a reality show documenting his life as a single dad, E! News reported Tuesday.
"His plans are on hold because of the Britney situation," a "source close to Federline" told E! News. "He had planned to do it, but not now."
While a Federline rep offered no comment on the situation surrounding the reality series, the source told E! News that the former Mr. Spears has been in talks with the show's potential producers "for months." In addition, Federline was also reportedly "looking into" launching a business that could be incorporated in the series.
"[But now] everything is on hold," the source told E! News.
Federline has been busy in recent weeks recording tracks and working with other artists at his home studio in order to spend more time with his and Spears' two boys -- toddlers Sean Preston and Jayden James, according to E! News. He was awarded primary physical and legal custody of the two tots last October.
While Federline has been doing his best to stay out of the spotlight in recent weeks -- the exact opposite could be said of Spears, who had visitation privileges with her two sons taken away early last month after she refused to relinquish Jayden over to Federline's bodyguard when their visit ended, prompting a visit from police.
She subsequently underwent a 24-hour mental and physical checkup at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and was released. However last Thursday, she was hospitalized for a second time on a 72-hour hold that was extended to potentially 14 days after doctors determined her condition was serious enough to warrant additional observation, E! News reported.
Spears was released from UCLA Medical Center's psych ward Wednesday morning.
Federline and Spears previously starred in the short-livedBritney & Kevin: Chaotic reality series, which aired five episodes on the now-defunct UPN in Summer 2005.
