K-Fed says depression led to becoming a fat ass

We've all seen them...the pictures that, when i seen them, i didn't even believe what i was seeing. I figured they had to be photoshopped. There was no way the thin ex-Justin Timberlake backup dancer could have gained THAT much weight. But no, it was real. And then i laughed. A lot. And wondered what his new, fit, volley ball player gf Victoria Prince thought of all the rolls. Turns out, poor Kevin was just eating his feelings. And by feelings i mean everything in sight. Kevin told People magazine how the struggles of everything going on in his very public life led to depression which then lead to overeating:

For Kevin Federline, the very public struggles came with a private pain, as his 2006 divorce from Britney Spears triggered depression and overeating.

"Once you get depressed, you don't really feel like doing anything," Federline, 31, tells Access Hollywood. "You're kind of discouraged about yourself and then the weight gain too, or that makes me more depressed. I mean, it's a combination of all of those things."

The difference for Federline was that his troubles played out on a public stage.

"Everybody knows what happened with me and Brit," he says. "I'm not going to say that's the total cause of it but, I mean, just not being happy with myself was probably the main part of my depression."

Now slimmed down thanks to his work on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp, Federline says his life is turning around, and that he now can be friends with Spears, 28, with whom he has two boys.

"I think as time goes on, it keeps getting better and better and better," he tells Access Hollywood. "I mean, I'm really happy the way that my life is going right now, I really am. I think, you know, I have come a long way. All of us have…my whole family. It's gotten so much better from where we were."

With Spears touring again and her affairs under the control of her father, Federline says, "I'm really happy for her. I'm very happy for her."

I can't wait to see his fat ass get drilled by Harvey on Celebrity Fit Club. But i have to wonder, did he just gain the weight so he could have a reason to be on a reality show and making money? Isn't it sad that was my first thought? lol. Like maybe he heard they were going to be casting so he just bucked down and started eating and never stopped. Alllll for the money, baby! But either way...I'm glad, for the sake of his girlfriend (and yeah, i guess his health) that he lost that weight!
