  • Kevin Federline not only smells, he sweats a lot. that He told us that “his palms and feet are sweaty” as he was waiting to get married.
  • Kevin had to put his relatives in their place when he saw his bride in her wedding dress: “I had to slap all of my relatives in the mouth because their jaw was on the floor,” he said.
