Well, that’s taking it a bit far. But Britney Spears‘ current stint in rehab has already had one positive outcome – Kevin Federline’s transformation into a better father.
Us Weekly has even gone so far as to anoint the man as such on its newest cover, and we’ve seen examples of this in recent weeks. You just never know, do you?
A source close to the rapping aspirant and former backup dancer says he’s currently put his life on hold while he works overtime to care for his two sons (Sean Preston, 17 months, and Jayden James, 5 months) and bring his family back together.
“He’s devastated and cries all the time,” a source close to Kevin Federline says. “Kevin wants to get back together with her. He is her biggest supporter.”
He means Britney, not Shar Jackson. In case you were wondering.
The former Mr. Britney Spears wasn’t always the poster child for parenthood. But his experience with the train wreck that is his estranged wife seem to have transformed him. He may even be helping the pop star get back on track.
It was at least partially at his urging that Spears entered rehab at the Crossroads Center in Antigua. And when she bailed later that day, Federline and Spears’ mom, Lynne, took the drastic step of taking the boys away.
Federline reportedly told her couldn’t see her sons again until she went to rehab. She got the message and checked back in to Promises clinic, albeit after she went ape$h!t and attacked photographers with an umbrella.
It’s unclear how the situation will ultimately play out, but one thing is clear: K-Fed is emerging as much more than the punchline (or WWE punching bag) we’ve come to expect.
While Britney’s public image is going down faster than Antonella Barba on that guy with the small … you know, Kevin appears to have his priorities in line, which is heartwarming.
