Who knew K-Fed would come out smelling like a rose?
Even after Brit's umbrella-wielding breakdown outside his house, FedEx visited the fallen pop princess in rehab, reports PEOPLE magazine. "Britney scared everyone pretty bad," says a source. "Kevin just wants her to be OK."
People are even starting to rally around Kevin in hopes of helping him beat the bum rap he's received. Brit's first hubby, Jason Alexander, who she married in 2004 for a whirlwind 55 hours, calls Federline "a good dude." He thinks Federline came across the way he did because he "just got caught up and manipulated" by the press and Spears' camp.
As to why Brit melted down in the public eye, Alexander says giving Kevin the boot "wasn't the best thing for her." K-Fed, the responsible parent ... we never saw that coming!
Anna's Alleged Lesbian Lover Jumps on the Pile
As the Anna Nicole circus continues, another one of the blonde bombshell's lovers is throwing their two cents in. Sandi Powledge tells the New York Daily News she was dumped by Anna right before she married oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall.
Powledge claims she had a three-year fling with the stripper-turned-model after meeting her in a Houston gay bar in 1991, and it was clear Smith already had a drug problem. "I'd say, 'Can't we just have a night without it?'" she says. "She'd say, 'Yeah.' But as the night wore on, I could always tell by her slur or the look on her face" that she had taken something.
After Anna kicked Powledge to the curb, they never saw each other again, and Powledge never got over the loss. "It hurts me," she says. "I don't know who was there in the end who really loved her."
