People - Kevin Federline Takes the Kids to Vegas

While Britney Spears remained in rehab, Kevin Federline headed to Las Vegas last weekend – with the kids.

Federline was in town for a long-planned paid appearance at the Mirage Hotel & Casino lounge Revolution, sources tell PEOPLE.

"Kevin was really low key," one source says. "You could definitely tell he was on his best behavior. He was having a good time, but wasn't the wild, crazy Kevin who used to come to Vegas."

He arrived on Saturday with Sean Preston, 18 months, and Jayden James, 6 months, plus a nanny, Federline's mother and brother, and two bodyguards, sources say.

He had dinner with friends and family at the hotel's Japonais restaurant, says a source, who adds: "He was late for dinner because he wanted to tuck his kids into bed."

By midnight, he was relaxing at a VIP table at the Revolution with a group of friends who included Las Vegas comedian Jeff Beacher.

Spears' rehab ordeal, says a source, has matured Federline.

"He wakes up with a purpose each morning and has enjoyed his family being around him," says the source.

A rep for Federline declined to comment.

Britney fans still won't be happy, they're gonna whine about the kids actually BEING IN VEGAS not that he didn't just leave them w. a nanny... anyway, I'm glad he's keepin his priorities straight at the moment. He's the only parent those boys have right now...

A father, Grandmother, Uncle and his wife can't take care of two boys by themselves? Kevin and Britney need parenting skills classes. Terrible..

At least Britney didn't need her mother, Kevin's mom, and nannies to take care of the kids. All she had was nannies. Kevin needs a whole gang of people.

Come on this is getting childish - we're not children here playing he said she said - what does it matter as long as the children are being cared for and are surrounded by people who love them.

You know what makes me skeptical and a little sick now? That for the last 2 weeks we have heard more about Kevin caring for 2 of his children and doing all of the things he should have been doing...."sources" and "friends" are now coming out of the woodwork to make sure every little thing is "reported". I like the guy and beleive he got a bad rap for the most part, but at some point in these daily "he's a good father and he left this or was late to that so that he could care for his children" seem contrived! Where were all these "sources" and "friends" a year ago, six months ago? All of it is getting to the point where it seems...fake.

Besides, he should have been tucking his children in from day one and spending gobs of time with them prior to these last 2 weeks...as every parent should do!!!

"He was late for dinner because he wanted to tuck his kids into bed."

Like they said to Britney: "babies can wake up during the night too so they really need their father to be there. STOP partying/drinking/smoking" :)

at the last he has the all gang to help him...what a shame of daddy.seriously i hope britney will be back soon.

Well yes, lets hope Britney is back soon. Then they can all spend time with the children, who afterall, are the most important ones in this situation.

He made about $20,000 a night doing this, it's much better than a M-F job where it might take half a year to make that much.

I'm glad he has all the family and friends around too. They must have really missed those kids while Britney had them. Britney wasn't talking to Lynne so I'm guessing Lynne hasn't been able to spend as much time with them in the last few months and is probably thrilled. Britney wanted Kevin to visit at her house, which means Kevin's mom, Kori, Kaleb, Kevin's brother, sister-in-law, etc. haven't seen them for a few months either. No wonder they all want to be with the kids, and it's good for the kids too.

Kevin should be taking care of his kids, and looking after his estranged wife. This is not the time for work. His God damn "work" can wait. The kids need their father, because their mother is ill. Not some fucking nanny, while he goes out making $20,000 for some damn gigs. Go take care of your kids, and look after your soon to be ex.

I also agree with anonymous at 11:53 PM. These sources are only coming out to give K-Fraud good PR, and to make it seem as if he's doing everything right. Kevin is paying them for this. Just like what was said, how come these "friends" of his weren't coming out a year ago, when him, and Brit were still an item? K-Fake is just as phony as they come.

look at where Brit Brit is right now? maybe she shoulda have asked for some help... then maybe she wouldnt have went off the deep end...

There have always been people saying what a nice guy Kevin was. Always. Tabloids will spin things the way they want but that's never changed.

As for Britney, from the sounds of it many people tried to help her and she pushed them all away. Kevin and Lynne finally managed to do it by threatening to take the kids from her.

Anonymous said...

^ Please. That was never even confirmed. I'm sure Britney's mom pushed her to go to rehab. Don't try to flip shit around to make it seem as if Kevin is the good guy. Taking care of the kids should have BEEN his main priority. Britney was/is the main caretaker. No doubt about it. Instead of spinning on the turn tables, Kevin needs to go home, and take care of those two boys. They need their father.

Kevin filed for sole custody, who says they were never a priority? Britney was keeping them away from a lot of people, and unfortunatly courts tend to be on the mother's side. Kevin did what he could though. And when he had to he teamed up with Britney's mom to make things right. Seems pretty dedicated to the kids to me.

And... Kevin's not allowed to take the kids to vegas for a week-end? You must hate Britney then.

^Taking the kids to Vegas for his mom, Brit's mom, and nannies to watch over them while he go make $20,000. Lame.

ObviousGirl said...

20,000 that he can put in the bank to take care of the kids or do whatever in the future. First some of you whine and say that he doesn't work and then you whine when he does work and make money of his own. Make up your fucking minds already, its getting old and you can't have it both ways.

Anonymous said...

Well at least he didn't leave them while he made that money! Geez, get a grip.

Anonymous said...

He's leaving two kids behind who needs their father to "work". How irresponsible can one get? The man has an estranged wife who is ill, and in rehab that probably wouldn't mind a helping hand. He has two kids without a mother. They can at least be with their father, but apparently he's too irresponsible. When I could have sworn his "friends" said, he put his "career" on hold to be there for Britney, and the kids.

Anonymous said...

Since when is it considered irresponsible to work and earn money. Why are you all so bound and determined that you have to say something negative. He's working - if he wasn't you'd be complaining about that too saying he is taking Britneys's money.

Anonymous said...

all these people saying Kevin shouldnt work, while his kids are tucked safe away in bed, must be extremely IRRESPONSIBLE people, and if you are PARENTS as well
SHAME ON YOU

you probably sit at home on your ass all day while your kids sleep and play, instead of providing for them and showing them what a responsible working parent looks like

You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Some of the comments here are so fucking lame, do some of you even think about the things you write.

'He should be taking care of his kids instead of going out to work.'

Are you kidding me, he took the kids with him to Vegas to work, he makes sure they're in bed before going out, he has a nanny to help and their grandmother is also there, what's the big deal, how can a man who's trying to earn a living for himself and his family be seen as irresponsiple, think you idiots.

Kelly.
