Kevin Breaks His Silence To People

Kevin Federline has been called many things in the nearly five years since Britney Spears walked into his life: boy toy, gold-digger, wannabe rapper, partier. These days he answers to one name: Daddy.

Since splitting with Spears in 2006 – and then watching in fear as she went through her very public breakdown – the former backup dancer, 30, has channeled all of his energy into their sons Preston, 3, and Jayden, 2. (Federline also has two kids, Kori, 6, and Kaleb, 4, with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson, 32.)

Now that Spears, 27, is getting her life back on track, they're sharing parenting duties again – and Federline is ready to tell his side of the story exclusively to PEOPLE.

Do you remember when you first met Britney?

I met her at a club in Hollywood, Joseph's. Our eyes met and that was it. We just hit it off right away. I learned real fast how much of a whirlwind the press and everything was.

What are your happiest memories of the marriage?

Well, getting married. I never thought that I would get married but it wound up happening. That was a really, really, happy, exciting moment. I pretty much realized that I was giving my life to her, and I was doing it without question.

What went wrong?

It's hard enough to be in a marriage, and then have a kid, then kids, it changes everything. For me, I'd become more concerned with my children. Not that I ignored Britney, but my kids are always most important ... I mean, we were having complications. I didn't give her an ultimatum, but I was trying to work stuff out with her, and she didn't even talk to me or anything and went behind my back and filed [for divorce]. [I was] completely blindsided.

A lot of people assumed you fought for custody of the kids because of money.

My first question to [my lawyer] was, "Am I ever going to be able to see my children?" I told him that I would spend every last dime that I had to make sure that my children are okay. That's all that mattered. I didn't know how much power Britney had. That really scared me.

How did you react in January when Britney locked herself in the bathroom with Jayden and was later taken to the hospital on a gurney?

That whole night is a blur. You want to talk about one of my lowest points of depression, that was probably one of them. I was very, very worried for her 'cause I care about her. That's the mother of my children. Just because I'm not in love with her doesn't mean that I don't love her. I'm definitely rooting for her. There's nothing more that I want than for her to be in the best health and doing what she loves to do.

Are things getting better?

Oh, man, it's totally turning around. It works out that [the kids] get to see her. There's structure over there, there's structure at my house. We're trying to keep the same type of schedule. It doesn't have to be completely perfect, but the foundation is there.

I'm glad Kevin is finally talking. I guess he figured the door was open since Britney was. And his answers are pretty much what I thought. He's a good guy I'm so glad he has sole custody of the kids and is being so reasonable about everything. So many people would be bitter, but he's just not.

he has been totally classy throughout this entire ordeal and he still gets called;
gold digger

If he was a woman taking care of the kids after being left by her husband, would he be called these things?

^^^ Kevin spent his whole marriage being called names by EVERYONE, names he didn't deserve. Than he gets dumped in a completely humiliating way, and he's not even sure if he'll be able to see his kids. Then his ex blames him for the breakup. I think that would be enough to make a lot of people bitter.

After he gave the interview, he went home and engaged in gay anal sex play.

If he's so classy, why isn't he working like an honest man, and thus setting an example of what it is to be a man in front of his sons?

He's a gold digging parasite, and scum of the Earth.

^^^ If the roles were reversed no one would say a thing. Being a parent takes time and energy, and besides - he DID just work - I think this interview probably brought in a nice paycheck.

Let's face it, the man is underemployed. The money he gets from brit, pays for the child support of Shar's kids. Look at his face, and what he does. He looks lazy. Nothing structured or hardworking comes out of him. How many times must court documents prove that he has NO net income?

I don't understand a society that praises mediocrity.

Cut the crap, you're rationalizing Kevin's inability to be a man. His boys are going to grow up thinking that they don't need to work, that they are entitled either by birth right or by impregnating the right woman.

He's not a father anyway, but rather someone who manages the nannies who do the real child raising. That's the role of a rich society bitch.

so being a man means making more than your woman?

Wow, you guys are setting WOMEN back 30 years aren't you with these REVERSE SEXSM remarks.
