Dumped by text? Britney's ex joins growing club

By Belinda Goldsmith
Thu Nov 9, 7:09 PM ET


Ur dumped, Kevin Federline -- and you are now part of a growing club of spurned lovers who have been ditched by text message. A video of Britney Spears' soon-to-be ex-husband apparently getting a text message informing him that the pop princess had filed for divorce became the most viewed item on the YouTube Internet site on Thursday, with more than 1 million hits.


The Web video shows Federline taping a reality television show and talking about Spears being his biggest fan -- until he gets a text message. Then he puts his head in his hands, rips off his microphone and disappears, returning 30 minutes later visibly upset. Spears, 24, abruptly filed for divorce from fledgling rapper Federline this week after two years of marriage -- and two children -- while he was filming in Canada.


Experts on cell phone and text message use and etiquette said Federline was not the first to be dumped by text -- and certainly would not be the last with rising numbers of teen-ager and 20-somethings using text to avoid confrontation. "People in their teens and 20s feel more comfortable using a text message to communicate something serious than having to confront someone," said Delly Tamer, chief executive of online wireless retailer LetsTalk.com, which researches phone use. "It is instant gratification -- and delayed mortification. At some point they will have to yell at each other."


CATCHING ON IN U.S.


The first text message was sent in 1992, according to British industry group Mobile Data Association, with text messaging launched commercially in 1995. In Britain 95 percent of 16- to 24-year-olds use text messaging regularly. But it is only in the past year or so that text messaging has soared in the United States. Figures from CTIA-The Wireless Association said that 12.5 billion text messages were sent in June this year, up 72 percent from a year ago.


A recent LetsTalk.com survey found 49 percent of U.S. teen-agers now listed text messaging as the most important feature of a cell phone.
No U.S. figures were available to track the use of text messaging to dump partners. But such research has been conducted in Europe and Asia, where the use of text messaging took off earlier than in the United States.
A survey carried out by Swiss messaging services provider Sicap two years ago found that 9 percent of mobile phone users admitted to having dumped a boyfriend or girlfriend by sending a text message.


A survey last October by Macquarie University in Australia found 100 people aged 18 to 35 used text messaging more when relationships began or were in a rocky patch. Few YouTube viewers seemed to have much sympathy for Federline, 28, although some acknowledged it was tough for the break-up to be so public. "That was actually sad, For it to be on T.V. WOW. Good for Brit though," said a note from Shadowman25.

Speaking of the woman he dumped for Britney. This woman really needs to stay away from the limelight and raise her kids UGH

K-Fed's Ex Says He's 'Such a Nice Guy'
NEW YORK - Shar Jackson, the mother of two of Kevin Federline's children, says the media should stop ridiculing the aspiring rapper, who with his break-up from Britney Spears appears to have an even bigger punch-line target on his back.

"He's such a nice guy," the 30-year-old actress tells "Inside Edition" in an interview that was to air Thursday. "He's made some mistakes but everybody else doesn't have the whole world pointing their finger at their mistakes."

Jackson and Federline, 28, are the parents of a 4-year-old girl, Kori, and a 2-year-old boy, Kaleb. They dated before he became involved with Spears, whom he married in 2004, while Jackson was pregnant.

Spears, 24, filed for divorce on Tuesday. She's seeking custody of their two sons, 1-year-old Sean Preston and Jayden James, who was born Sept. 12.

Federline, who's been making the rounds promoting his hip-hop debut, "Playing with Fire," counter-filed court papers Wednesday seeking sole custody and spousal support.

Jackson, who starred in TV's "Moesha" in the late `90s, says Federline does not pay child support to her. But, she adds, "He does pay for their school, and they go to a very expensive private school."

Celebrity divorces, Jackson thinks, are nothing to celebrate. "I don't understand why people take so much joy in other people's pain."

I know Shar played the stereotypical dumb character on Moesha but I wasn't expecting it to apply to her real life. This nice guy is the same man who used her financially for years until he met a bigger gravy train.

Shar please sit down!:lol: Your latest attempt to become an artist is hilarious just like Kfed's rap career!

Ah ok ... well maybe they made a deal that he would pay for their education or else isn;t he obliged to pay child support :confused: ... private schools can be very expensive later on though and I mean what exactly does K-Fed do?

The Kept Man deserved it, he was babed enough... Text message is a nice form of dumping someone. It's written out clearly "you're dumped" so they can go back and read it over and over again if they are so hard headed and stupid. I'd accept that as a way to dump someone. I think written or phone messages are often the best way, because they can replay the shit over and over again and accept it sooner! :lol:

Better vwould have been had she used the "dump and humiliate" tactic: Give the loser front-row seats at the Staples Center--next to Jack--and then instruct the screen operator to type in huge letters (on a nationally-televised game):

Kevo: Take your tiny cock someplace else. Your ex-****, Brit

(Or something to that effect. Should work like a charm).

Blame K-Fed's soaring success for Britney split Wannabe rapper can now sell his CDs out of the trunk of his Ferrari

COMMENTARY
By Michael Ventre
MSNBC contributor

The story of “A Star Is Born” is by now familiar. A husband and wife in show business struggle to keep their union strong despite the fact that one of them finds fame and fortune while the other endures only heartache and disappointment. The most serious casualty in such a relationship isn’t a broken dream; it’s everlasting love. I couldn’t help but gravitate toward the “A Star Is Born” model when the news broke that Britney Spears and hubby Kevin Federline are calling it quits. Obviously, the strain of astounding success juxtaposed against pathetic failure proved to be too much. Obviously, Britney just couldn’t deal with K-Fed’s meteoric rise into hip-hop royalty.

It must be brutal for Brit. One moment he’s lying around the mansion with his entourage siphoning her funds while trying to think of words that rhyme with “prenup,” then suddenly it’s all gone. No more insipid heart-to-hearts. No more unexplained late-night absences. No more pleas for career boosts. Just a big black hole where his love had been. K-Fed’s status in the entertainment business has been massively misinterpreted, and, in turn, this breakup will appear to the unenlightened as Britney getting fed up with K-Fed.

Sure, he was booed recently during a brief appearance at the annual Halloween Carnival in West Hollywood. And he was booed at an appearance during a World Wrestling Entertainment match in L.A. And he reportedly had to plead to keep organizers from canceling a concert in a New York City club after only 300 people showed up in a room that holds 1,500. And shows at the House of Blues in Cleveland and Atlantic City were cancelled. And many in the hip-hop community reacted with derision and scorn after K-Fed performed at the Teen Choice Awards, including XXL magazine editor-in-chief Elliot Wilson, who said: “He doesn’t get that he’s Britney’s man and it’s hard to take him seriously.”

Also, there is his new CD, “Playing With Fire,” in which he raps about climbing out of obscurity in Fresno to enjoy a life of privilege and wealth as Britney’s husband. Rolling Stone’s Kevin O’Donnell called it “reprehensible,” while Entertainment Weekly’s Chris Willman gave it a grade of “F” and Stephen Thomas Erlewine of All Music Guide said, “It’s also a bore because he’s a boor.”

All of that is just jealousy. K-Fed has, above all else, street cred. The street in question might be Rodeo Drive, but still. People make such a big deal out of the fact that 50 Cent has been shot nine times. Try being K-Fed for a day. Try loading a day’s worth of shopping and 11 slacker buddies into one Rolls-Royce Phantom and then come talk to me about street cred.
Our finest hip-hop artists are where they are because they draw upon challenging life experiences and harrowing close calls to inspire their music. This is K-Fed all over. He’s a poster boy for adversity. For instance, recently he told Entertainment Weekly: “I used to be embarrassed to go to the store and buy tampons, but that’s all past tense. Once you make it through that, then you’re good.”

It’s possible that quote was taken out of context, but I don’t recall him saying that he was buying the tampons for Britney. If he wasn’t, if he was just buying them, then he is truly facing more hardship than any man should bear. Somewhere in that tragic situation is a song that, despite threats of more ridicule, demands to be written and performed before a sparse audience.

Longing for the days of wine and mooching?

Britney made a recent appearance on “Late Night With David Letterman” and looked good. She had a sassy new blond hairdo and was clad in an enticing black dress. It was only a staged cameo, a mere morsel of celebrity banter, but it gave her an opportunity to meet the public during this trying time. The folks in Dave’s audience responded favorably, bathing her in applause.

But she obviously is hurting. Reminders are everywhere. Whenever she sees a married couple sitting together in a restaurant, she’ll immediately think of Kevin, especially if the guy is making the woman pick up the check. When she attends one of the major music awards shows, she’ll hobnob with fellow superstars backstage and long for the days when Kevin was beside her, asking her for 20 bucks for cigarettes.

And somewhere out there, found on eBay or at a garage sale, a DVD copy of “Britney and Kevin: Chaotic,” their short-lived UPN reality series, will serve as a shining example of how two music-industry titans working at the peak of their artistic powers can not only co-exist but thrive in an unforgiving business. Even though the show lasted all of five episodes, was roundly thrashed by critics, and may have even hastened the eventual demise of that network.

But most of all, Britney will suffer the indignity of watching as K-Fed’s career skyrockets. No longer encumbered by the old ball and chain, he is now free to tour the world and demonstrate that he is more than just Mr. Spears. Now he can get cancelled out of much bigger venues. He doesn’t need the Britney marketing machine; he can sell his CDs out of the trunk of the Ferrari he gets in the settlement. And if you think the music industry will shun him now that he’s no longer together with Britney, think again. In the music business, loyalty rules. Artists and executives are renowned for taking care of their own. Hip-hop artists especially will rally to K-Fed’s side and make sure he has everything he needs to keep rapping insightful observations like, “One earring costs more than your budget.”
All he needs now is a chance. And a good lawyer.

Meanwhile, Britney sits in an empty palace, taking care of her kids, no longer serenaded by the dulcet tones of hubby cursing out yet another entertainment reporter on the plasma who calls him a parasite and complaining that there’s not enough Kobe beef in the fridge to make chili.
Poor kid.
