K-Fed back in the studio despite Britney troubles

Spears' ex turns his sights on producing

Kevin Federline is reportedly back in the studio working on new material.

Britney Spears‘ ex-husband, who now has sole custody of their two young sons, has been working out of his home studio on production projects so he can be close to his boys.

Kevin has been actively producing, nurturing new artists and doing it all from his home studio, so he can be there for his kids whenever they need him,” a source close to Federline told E! Online.

“He loves the music business and is committed to making it a career for himself, even if it’s not as a singer.

K-Fed‘s debut rap album, ‘Playing With Fire’, sold barely 20,000 copies, which may explain his shift to producing.

Meanwhile, he is due to appear on US television programme ‘One Tree Hill’ on January 15.
