Kevin's Britney ban
13:30 25 April 2006
Kevin Federline reportedly banned wife Britney Spears from his recent Las Vegas concert.
The fledgling rapper is said to have ordered his pop singer spouse to stay away from the showcase - at which he played two songs from his forthcoming debut album 'Playing With Fire' - over fears she would "upstage" him.
The 'Toxic' singer - who has a son, Sean Preston, with 28-year-old Federline - is said to have been devastated after he broke the news to her on a dinner date at plush Las Vegas restaurant Nero.
One onlooker said: "It was a full-blown war of words. It was a very bad night for Britney.
"Kevin didn't want her overshadowing him on the red carpet. Britney fled the restaurant and raced up to her suite alone."
Later that night, a dishevelled Federline, without Britney, joined family and friends at Vegas' Pure nightclub to be introduced to the waiting crowd by Paris Hilton's mother Kathy.
