Is Britney's marriage in trouble?
13:30 10 February 2005
Britney Spears' second marriage is reportedly in trouble.
Insiders say the 23-year-old beauty, who wed former dancer Kevin Federline just five months ago, has been rowing with her husband.
26-year-old Kevin, who reportedly hasn't been seen publicly with his wife for some time, has also been spotted without his wedding ring, fuelling rumours that the short-lived marriage could be over.
A source told America's In Touch magazine: "Kevin has suddenly started partying like a single guy.
"In addition to going out on several occasions without his wedding band on, he's been hanging out with his old posse of pals and flying to Las Vegas for weekends of drinking and gambling."
Sources also claim Kevin's erratic behaviour has made the sexy star question her plans to start a family with her new husband.
Friends of Britney claim that Kevin's lack of responsibility and the fact that he left his previous girlfriend when she was six months pregnant, have forced her to reassess the relationship.
A source told America's Life and Style weekly magazine: "It has occurred to Britney that Kevin isn't a great help in cleaning up after the dogs. And he might not be too eager to be on midnight diaper patrol either."
