Federline named “Dad of the Year”

Kevin FederlineDetails magazine has named Kevin Federline “Dad of the Year.” The father of four was chosen as top pop after stepping up to the plate when his ex-wife, Britney Spears, had a meltdown and lost visitation of their two sons, Jayden, 1, and Sean, 2. A friend told People magazine: “It makes me furious when people say, ‘Oh great—he’s taking responsibility… He’s always been a great father. He’s been there in every way for all of his kids.” Close friend DJ Irie told the magazine: “For most guys in Kevin’s situation, home would be the ultimate bachelor pad. But for Kevin, he made it all about the kids. He’s got toys everywhere. You can totally tell it’s all about the kids at home.”

    What a joke. Father of the Year? How about you are a father, act like one. The poor kids…their mother is a mess and their father is a joke.

    You shouldn’t make comments and judgments about people you don’t know personally.

    My God what a joke, he left his first wife when she was pregnant, married Britt and she has supported him even when they divorced. Does no one remember how he treated her when they were married, out every night with the guys, spending her money like no tommorrow. He is responsible for her illness. The only reason he is good daddy now is that she will have to continue to support the bum. I bet he has nannys and maids chasing his kids while he pretends to be a rapper boy.

    K-fed, a true father figure and a role model for all men.

  5. Arnold • January 25, 2008 @ 9:42 AM

    Don’t get sucked in by this hype. He has been nominated to get the reaction above. This is all about marketing. A lot of people will buy this rag to see why they have promoted such a farce.
    Advertisers don’t give a sh!t whats in these rags as long as people see their ads.
    Don’t buy the magazines or the products advertised in these rags!!!!!!

    Today is my baby daughter’s birthday, she is
    24. I have been a single dad for 23 years.
    My three children are successful young adults.
    Unlike KFED, I did NOT receive any monies from my ex. I now face retirement with no money. Why? because I put all mine into my children’s future(s)
    Rgrets? No way, my children love me, that is worth more than ALL the money on earth!!!-DadEO

  7. Brat • January 25, 2008 @ 9:58 AM

    Well at least he’s not drinking then driving, using illicit drugs and acting like a crazy nut job while in custody of the children. When was the last time the guy attracted negative attention? Considering the quality of parenting in Hollywood, I’m not surprised about this, but I would like to point out that he wouldn’t be my first choice even in Celebrityville!

    To T.Loydd,

    It’s people like you who should win “Father of the Year” not some pseudo-celeb who is living off the money his ex-wife makes. Simply having the children with you does not make you a great Dad. It’s doing the everyday stuff that shows who you are and what you are made of.

    Four kids with two women in how many years? Children need stability and someone who is not going to check out at the first sign of a better paycheck waiting around the corner.

    Hilarious – can we also nominate Amy Winehouse as “The best role model for teenagers?!”

  10. Arnold • January 25, 2008 @ 12:27 PM

    I nominate Brittany for best non actress with a foreign accent. Right then off you go.

    michael jackson should be nominated for best dad

  12. Mary • January 25, 2008 @ 4:36 PM

    Kevin Federline is neither a good father and especially not a role model for men. He is nothing but an opportunist and right now is living off the woman who he helped pull down. I agree with Karen (Jan. 25) Its sounds like something I had previously written about. He knew by leaving Brittany he had a stable paycheck and by getting the boys he’s on a role. Doesn”t have to work (I can’t recall has he ever had a real job, or has he always lived off his women?)Congratulations T. Lloyd You sound like Father of the Year.Any tips for the Bloodsucker Kevin? Again I really believe he loves his kids, But father of the year, Give me a break.

    T.Lloyd, you should be very proud of yourself. Not many men would go without for their children.
    As for K-Fed, he’s just a joke, a waste of space. He’s definitely a better parent than Britney, as far as any of us know, but father of the year??? What brainiack decided to give him THAT title?

  14. Arnold • January 25, 2008 @ 7:42 PM

    The Brainiack that decided to give him this title, is now the head of the marketing department after the circulation of this rag skyrockets.

    This trash sells and we buy it.

  15. Freaky Bitch • January 26, 2008 @ 2:26 AM

    He could never be father of the year, what about his oher 2 children with Shar Jackson? Does he even see them??? Just another dead beat faher, I bet he has nanies that watch the Sean Preston and Jayden James!

  16. Bubba • January 26, 2008 @ 9:24 AM

    I hope K-Fed writes a book revealing his secrets to becoming a “Father of the Year” like him.
    His skills, values, and attributes as a father has to be revealed so all future dads can use it as a guideline.
    “Idiot’s Guide To Become A Successful Father” – written by K-Fed – “Father of the Year 2007”.
    What a fitting ironic title this would be, heeheehee…

  17. Ottawagirl • January 26, 2008 @ 1:23 PM

    If you buy these magazines, that have all the celeb news then you can’t really complain about Kev’s “title”.

    Find something else to do or just read the tabloids.

    Life certainly has some twists and turns. A few years ago he was scorned by the public and media. Now since Britney has flipped or is manipulating her image to ensure she receives more publicity than her younger, pregnant sister, Kevin has become the “media darling of the moment”. But people do mature and let’s give everyone a second chance. From what he has portrayed recently, it appears that he wants to be a father to his children and provide them with some stability. Unfortunately Brit does not seem capable of being a proper mother at the moment so I think that Kevin has stepped up and proven himself. I don’t think it’s a marketing ploy – he genuinely loves his kids. The children are lucky to have one good parent. Kevin deserves to be called a great father.

  19. Anonymous • January 26, 2008 @ 8:29 PM

    Ok, no, I’m not buying these rags, I don’t buy magazines, so they aren’t getting any $ from me. And Glenis, are you nuts? He isn’t putting those boys first! He’s putting money first! As long as he has them, Britney has to pay his way through life, that’s the only reason he wants them!

  20. BeBe • January 27, 2008 @ 2:25 PM

    Father of the Year? You have got to be kidding. A real Father has a job and provides financially for his family. This deadbeat sponged off of Shar Jackson and when a bigger meal ticket came along, he jumped ship (and left Shar pregnant of course). He dresses like a slob … and what’s up with the Mohican haircut? He has nannies, bodyguards and cleaning ladies….he does nothing all day except make sure those cheques from Britney get in to his bank account. No doubt he is a good dad when he has to be with those kids but it is pretty obvious his primary focus is financial gain. He played his cards perfectly.

  21. Helen • January 27, 2008 @ 5:59 PM

    When K-Fed is voted ‘Father of the Year’ I know something is totally wrong with the world. As far as I have heard in the news I think he is the laziest, good-for-nothing, talentless life-sucking waste of a human being there ever lived. He is the singlemost problem that Britney ever had in my opinion. She seemed to be doing alright till she hooked up with him. Not to mention walking out on a pregnant girlfriend to find someone else who was richer and better connected to further his career and give him a better lifestyle. He definately wouldn’t get my vote if I was ever asked.

    He may step up to the plate now but that is because of the money in his bank account. His lifestyle was the result of Britney Spears. K-Fed is played a big part of her melt down. Star power plus lots of money does not mean you are a great dad. Their are dad out there who WORK for their paychecks.

  24. Nancy • January 28, 2008 @ 9:13 AM

    He’s a f*cking DONOR just like my ex, and that’s all he is!!! Doesn’t contribute a dime; never changes a diaper; never compliments or diciplines; does not play with or partake in any way with the children……..father of the year???? Give me a f*&$%#@ break!!!!! Wankster!

  25. K • January 28, 2008 @ 11:54 AM

    Are you freakin’ kidding me!!! WOW, what has this word turned to. K-Fed is father of the year. LMFAO x10! The guy is money hungry pig who thinks he’s the shit and can sing. WOW, this is a head scratcher!

  26. Nancy • January 28, 2008 @ 6:27 PM

    Alec Baldwin and David Hasselhoff deserve this award more than this d**k head does!!! So what the heck does that tell ya?

  27. Arnold • January 28, 2008 @ 8:36 PM

    So Nancy from your remarks I gather you are not exactly on board with the magazines choice.

  28. Nancy • January 28, 2008 @ 11:53 PM

    Whatever gave you that idea, Arnie?

    Wankster is a d**k!! I deserve that freakin’ award more than he does! I still say Britney is the better parent!! Sad, but true!

  29. tributegirl • January 29, 2008 @ 5:35 PM

    I don’t know, the boys look clean and healthy (although they always look unhappy). I think the award should go to the nannies! At least they feed and wash them, that’s probably a lot more than either of the parents have ever done!
