Columbus Short was thisclose to being Kevin Federline.
The choreographer-turned-actor was romantically linked to Britney in 2003, while his wife was seven months pregnant -- see a trend here, Shar Jackson, anyone?
While promoting his new film "Stomp the Yard," "Tom Joyner Morning Show" entertainment reporterJawn Murray asked Short how it felt to have a life that didn't go "the way of the Federline." Audibly surprised by the question, Short replied, "I believe in my talent ... not to diss Kevin, he's a boy of mine ... I'm grateful in the career decisions that I've made and God directing my path." No kidding.
If only K-Fed had learned a thing or two from this one ... we could have all been spared PopoZao.
