Just as we all suspected, Kevin Federline is using his wife, Britney Spears to get press on his new album Playing With Fire, which was released today. While promoting the album, Kevin gave dirt on his relationship with Britney to USA Today and the New York Post.
Kevin told USA Today that he never intended to fall for Britney when he did. He says, "I'm not going to say that I planned on falling in love with my wife when my ex-girlfriend [Shar Jackson] was pregnant." But despite the sticky situation, Federline claims that his two children with Jackson, 4-year-old Kori and 2-year-old Kaleb, are close with his two children with Spears, 1-year-old Sean and newborn Jayden.
Sean "gets real excited when Kori and Kaleb come over," he said. "[He] is starting to take on the big brother role, and he's getting very protective. [He] wants to be around the baby all the time." Meanwhile, Jayden "picks up things a lot quicker than the others, because he has the benefit of learning from the older kids."
Taking a page out of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's book, Britney and Kevin are waiting to let the public see Jayden. "If my wife wants to have that baby all to herself for now, then she keeps it, because there's not much she has to herself, not even her own children," explained Kevin.
The 28-year-old rapper says he is definitely a family man. He revealed, "I knew for sure that I'd have one or two children by now. I didn't think I'd have four children, but I love being a young dad with a big family."
Kevin doesn't want his children to get into the entertainment industry at a young age "even though my wife did it, and it turned out okay for her...And if that means I take my family out of L.A. to grow up on a farm, then that's what I've got to do."
As for Britney, Kevin claims she is back in the studio "recording three or four times a week, and she still manages to be with the kids a lot." And Kevin is working on the next phase of his career as well. He told the Post that he is working on a memoir, "The book is definite. It will be a biography of my life until I met my wife, so people will better understand who I am. I haven't done it yet. You know, I'll get a ghostwriter in there."
