Britney Spears’ ex husband and father to her two boys Sean Preston and Jayden James has packed on the poundage over the summer and will appear in the latest cast of Celebrity Fit Club, VH1’s reality show about celebrities who want to lose weight. A former backup dancer, Federline drew a lot of attention in recent months for putting on a significant amount of weight. Some media sources have gone from calling him K-Fed to calling him K-Fat.
In late August, Federline was photographed in late August at a pool in Miami with volleyball player girlfriend Victoria Prince talking on his cell phone, drinking, smoking, and being fat. He had also drawn stares at the Ryan Sheckler X Games Celebrity Classic golf tournament wearing what appeared to be an extra large polo shirt.
His other ex, Shar Jackson, rushed to Federline’s defense, calling it “daddy weight” and explaining that when you’re a full time parent, you can’t always focus on eating right and exercising.
Jackson is also appearing on the next season of Celebrity Fit Club, along with Federline, Bobby Brown, and Nicole Eggert. The series will air starting in February 2010.
