Kevin Federline was born on March 21, 1978, in Fresno, California.
He is an American rapper, DJ, actor, television personality, professional wrestler and fashion model.
His career began as a back-up dancer with a non-profit organization called Dance Empowerment.
He served as a backup dancer for Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child, Pink and LFO for a number of years.
He became a high-profile personnel after a two year marriage with singer Britney Spears in September 2004.
On November 7, 2006, Spears filed for divorce from Federline, citing irreconcilable differences and asked for both physical and legal custody of their two sons.
Federline filed a response to Spears’ divorce petition, also seeking physical and legal custody of their children.
On October 1, 2007, a court ruling granted Federline sole physical custody of his children, with legal custody to be decided.
On January 3, 2008, police were called to Spears’ home after the singer reportedly refused to relinquish custody of her children to Federline, locking herself in a room with the child.
Spears’ was taken from her home on a stretcher and hospitalized for appearing to be under the influence with an unknown substance.
As a result of this, Federline was awarded sole legal and sole physical custody of the minor children.
Under the hashtag #freebritney, fans of Spears are calling for the end of her conservatorship after Kanye West, who has been diagnosed with a mental disorder, announced he would be running for president of the United States.
Britney currently has no legal control over her estate or financial and personal assets — those rights were granted to her father and a lawyer 12 years ago.
She is said to be worth $59million.
Specifically, fans are calling for Britney to have access to her own lawyer in her case.
The topic blew up on Twitter after West announced his intention to run for office as fans noted that he, too, was hospitalized for mental illness and held against his will.
Britney’s conservatorship was implemented in 2008 after the star had a series of public meltdowns.
The arrangement put her financial assets, estate, and personal assets under the control of her father and lawyer.
Conservatorships are designed to protect people who cannot take care of themselves.
