Britney has been spotted kissing Jonathan "J.R." Rotem, a producer and friend of both Kevin and Britney's for the last several months (although today he was removed from being one of Kevin's top 20 myspace friends). x17online.com provides the video and identifies J.R.:
Jonathan produced songs on both Kevin's album ("America's Most Hated," "Lose Control," and "Dance With A Pimp") and Britney's upcoming album ("Everybody" and "Who Can She Trust"). Here are some quotes from and about Jonathan "J.R." Rotem:

But because she [Britney] has a home studio, not only does she have the benefit of working "at home in my sweatpants," she also can work whenever the mood strikes her — as can her husband, Kevin Federline, who's also working with Rotem ("America's Most Hated" was one of their creations).
"He played me some stuff that sounded a lot hotter than what most people would think," Rotem said of K-Fed. "Right off the bat, you're at a disadvantage being a white rapper. And being a white rapper who's Britney Spears' husband? You're tackling credibility issues. He's aware of that, but he's really putting his heart and soul into the project. People were suspicious, but when they heard the song, they were like, 'He sounds good on it. Let's see where he takes us.' "

What is Kevin Federline’s new material like, can he really rap?
I’ve also worked with him a lot. I met him when I was working with Britney, he’s such a warm guy and we became friends and hanging out. He was playing me his stuff and I could tell that he was really stepping it up and being focused. I really wanted to put my hands on the project and we came up with some great stuff. One track we did is on his Myspace, America’s Most Hated. I think his album is almost ready for release.
What does Britney think?
I think she really likes it. I don’t speak about them on a personal level but she definitely thinks it’s cool.

The Game calls him "the white Dr. Dre." Britney Spears and Kevin Federline call him a close friend. And Snoop Dogg, Mya and Paris Hilton — well, they just call him. A lot.
