BEIJING, Nov. 10 (Xinhuanet) -- The Blackberry
breakup of Britney Spears and soon-to-be-ex-husband Kevin Federline was caught
on video by a crew from Canada's MuchMusic channel that had been covertly
following Fed-Ex on the road to Dumpsville.
After receiving a text message that
read: I H8 U, loser! Federline, 28, became visibly upset, removed his
microphone and left for a half hour before returning to finish an interview.
"He had no idea it was coming," a Federline pal told

But sources familiar with the couple's marital
problems say the the writing was on the wall.
"He knew what was happening," said a music-industry

In fact, Federline has been lamenting that she was

One day after Spears filed for divorce from husband
Federline, the rapper responded on Wednesday with court papers seeking spousal
support and custody of their two children.
Fed-ex submitted his response in Los Angeles Superior

After she stormed out, Kevin was spotted kneeling and
crying in a corner.
But he doesn't appear to be crying now, instead
Federline is advertising his new status, letting the ladies know he may still be
married, but he's available.
At Chicago's House Of Blues on Wednesday night, he
told the crowd: "Hey, I see a lot of fine ladies in here. You know I'm a free
man, right, ladies? You wanna dance with a pimp?"
