As for Britney’s underworked hubby Kevin Federline, the 21-year-old added, “Well, Kevin gave me a ‘look’, and Britney just grabbed his arm and pulled him in close to her. He is probably all over loads of girls and if we can see it why can’t she? You know when someone is trying hard to be something they’re not.
