Kevin Federline got fat because he was depressed. Kevin recently opens up and admits he had some issues after his divorce from Britney Spears…issues that led to him packing on the pounds. And not just a couple of pounds, but lots that made him look noticeably unhealthy.

Kevin hit up Celebrity Fit Club and dropped some pounds quickly. But he says this via the gain on People Magazine:

“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.”

The good thing is Kevin got help and is now losing the weight, becoming a healthy dad for his two sons. Good work!
