As of 2008 he was linked to former volleyball player Victoria Prince. The two were on the same recreational bowling team, the Party Animals.[30] The couple welcomed a daughter named Jordan Kay on August 15, 2011. It is Federline's fifth and Prince's first child.[31] They were married on August 10, 2013.[32] On April 7, 2014, they welcomed their second child together, daughter Peyton Marie.

On January 23, 2012, he suffered chest pains while filming the show.[29]

In November 2011, on a weight loss show in Australia called Excess Baggage, Federline was hospitalized for what was called "heat stress". Filming was taking place in November which is the hottest time of the year in the Kimberley region of northern Western Australia.[28]

Federline plays a border guard in the 2009 film American Pie Presents: The Book of Love.

Federline appeared on the seventh season of the weight-loss reality television show Celebrity Fit Club.[27]

2007–present: Reality television career and second marriage

Federline guest-starred during several episodes and was subsequently added as a regular on the television series One Tree Hill on The CW.[26] However, he did not appear on the show again after his guest slot.

Federline was featured in a Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company commercial during Super Bowl XLI on February 4, 2007, as part of its "Life Comes at You Fast" ad series. In the commercial, Federline initially appeared in a music video, rapping about living a high-flying lifestyle. Then reality sets in as Federline is shown now working in a fast-food restaurant with his manager yelling at him, the punchline of the ad being "Life comes at you fast."[25]

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Federline was well received backstage. Sources say he worked so well with the company and personnel that the WWE may give him a regular role on the company's show Raw in the near future.[23] Other sources and wrestlers have spoken about Federline's generally good attitude backstage as well.[24]

Federline appeared on Umaga. Later in the night, after John Cena's main event match, Cena went after Federline and brought him into the ring and delivered his FU finishing move twice before cameras stopped rolling.

Federline has been signed to model for the Five Star Vintage line by the San Francisco-based Blue Marlin clothing company. The initial series of ads ran in August 2006 and was subsequently extended for Christmas 2006. The line he modeled for the fall 2006 was the top-selling line in Macy's, Kitson in Los Angeles, and Lord & Taylor.[22]

Federline initially released two singles, "Y'all Ain't Ready" and "PopoZão," shortly after his marriage to Spears. Following poor critical reaction, neither song was included on his debut album.[3] Instead, the first official single was "Lose Control," which he premiered on the Teen Choice Awards show on the Fox network in late summer 2006.[3] He released his debut album, Playing with Fire, on October 31, 2006, to mostly negative reviews.

2006: Playing with Fire

On July 26, 2008, court papers were filed stating Federline would retain sole legal and physical custody of the children while Spears would get visitation rights that would increase over time. In addition to this, Federline will receive $20,000 per month from Spears in child support as well as additional funds to cover any custody-related legal expenses.[21]

On October 1, 2007, a court ruling granted Federline sole physical custody of his children, with legal custody to be decided. On the late evening of January 3, 2008, police were called to Spears's home after the singer reportedly refused to relinquish custody of her children to Federline and locked herself in a room with her younger son, Jayden.[20] Spears was taken from her home on a stretcher and hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for appearing to be under the influence of an unknown substance.[20] As a result of this, Federline was "awarded sole legal custody and sole physical custody of the minor children."[14]

Spears filed for divorce from Federline on November 7, 2006, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for both physical and legal custody of their two sons, with visitation rights for Federline.[13] The following day, Federline filed a response to Spears's divorce petition, seeking physical and legal custody of their children.[14] According to a representative for Federline's lawyer, the divorce filing "caught Kevin totally by surprise."[15] The couple reached a global settlement agreement in March 2007 and their divorce was finalized on July 30.[16][17][18] Federline maintains a relationship with Spears's parents for the benefit of their children, and Spears's family have been photographed in and out of his home and babysitting the boys while Kevin was out of town.[19]

After three months of dating, Federline and Spears announced their engagement in July 2004; they were married on September 18 in a nondenominational ceremony at a residence in Studio City, California, filing legal papers on October 6.[9][10] They have two sons together, Sean Preston Federline (born September 14, 2005)[11] and Jayden James Federline (born September 12, 2006).[12] Federline and Spears starred in the 2005 reality television series Britney & Kevin: Chaotic, which consisted of their home videos. He also appeared in the 2004 movie You Got Served, and subsequently guest-starred in an episode of CSI that premiered in October 2006. He also guest-starred on the NBC show 1 vs. 100, along with the cast of Las Vegas, in the episode "Delinda's Box."

2004–06: Marriage to Britney Spears

Federline was engaged to actress Shar Jackson, with whom he has a daughter, Kori Madison Federline (born July 31, 2002), and a son, Kaleb Michael Jackson Federline (born July 20, 2004).[4][6] The couple separated shortly before their son's birth. After the separation, Federline began a relationship with pop singer Britney Spears. Jackson later commented that Federline's relationship with Spears "wasn't like just breaking up a relationship. It was like breaking up a family",[4][7] but sustained an amicable relationship with Federline, complimenting his parenting.[8]
