The Worst Day Of K-Fed's Life
It's hard to believe, but five years have passed since the release of Kevin Federline's debut Playing With Fire, which came out on Halloween, 2006. It was a scary night for some, but K-Fed was on top of the world. Married to Britney Spears, he was psyched to finally bring his brand of hip-hop to the world.
Christiana Cefalu True story
Only six days later, however, he suddenly found his life in the gutter. The catalyst? His first live concert ever, held at New York's Webster Hall. It was a complete and utter disaster.
But before we bring you this chilling tale, a quick timeline of preceding events to get you up to speed:
Christiana Cefalu Kevin Federline is not a fan of the paparazzi, or as he calls them, the "Pavarottis"
9/27/04: After five blissful months of courtship, Federline and Spears get married in a "pimps and hoes" themed ceremony in Studio City.
5/17/05: Federline and Britney's self-produced reality show Britney & Kevin: Chaotic debuts on UPN. It is not renewed for a second season.
9/14/05: Their son Sean Preston is born.
11/2/05: A snippet of "Y'all Ain't Ready," the first time we get to hear Federline rap, is leaked by producer Disco D. It is greeted by a tidal wave of hatred.
4/5/06: Thomas Dolby attempts to take legal action against Federline for sampling his song "She Blinded Me With Science." His case stalls because, according to Dolby, Federline has no management, label or lawyer.
8/20/06: Federline makes his live performance debut at the 2006 Teen Choice Awards.
10/16/06: He appears on WWE Monday Night Raw to promote his upcoming album. The crowd's disdain for him convinces management to have him return the next week as a villain, and he begins a three month feud with fan favorite John Cena.
10/31/06: Playing with Fire is released on Federation Records, Federline's imprint on the short-lived Reincarnate Music label. Moving 6,485 copies, it charts at 151 on Billboard, which doesn't sound too hot, although it outsells new releases from Flava Flav, Ice-T, and Ron Artest and greatest hits albums from Cee-Lo and Lil Romeo. Still, it remains the lowest-scoring work ever in Metacritic's database.
