Kevin Federline Packs On "Daddy-Weight"

Usmagazine.com recently caught a glimpse of Kevin Federline's new bod while he played golf in Los Angeles, and he appears to have gained a significant amount of weight.

In his defense, Federline's ex, Shar Jackson, said "It's daddy-weight. When you are a fulltime parent, sometimes you can't focus on you. If gaining a few pounds is your only problem, life's not too bad."

According to his rep, "He's a stay-at-home dad, and people tend to gain weight when they are home with the kids. He's very happy with the way he looks," Usmagazine.com reported.

Federline has sole custody of Sean Preston, 2 and Jayden James, 17 months.

Bad Taste: Celebrity Chef Fudges Resume

After rising to culinary stardom preparing impossible meals on his Food Network series, Briton Robert Irvine has met an obstacle his kitchen prowess could not overcome - an embellished resume.

The star of "Dinner: Impossible" has acknowledged fabricating some of the more fantastic parts of his resume, including having cooked for Britain's Royal Family and various U.S. presidents.

Following the revelations, the network announced it would not renew Irvine's contract, though it would air the remaining episodes of the current season, the series' fourth.

"I was wrong to exaggerate in statements related to my experiences in the White House and the Royal Family," Irvine said in a written statement. "I am truly sorry for misleading people and misstating the facts."

Air Charter Must Pay Up For Secretly Taping King of Pop In Route

The owner of a Santa Monica-based air charter service has been ordered to pay attorney Mark Geragos and an associate more than $12 million for ordering secret videotaping of Michael Jackson and the lawyers as they flew with the pop star to his surrender on molestation charges in 2003.

A lawyer for XtraJet owner Jeffrey Borer says he'll appeal Monday's judgment.

Borer and a co-defendant pleaded guilty in 2006 to conspiracy for installing digital cameras aboard an XtraJet plane that flew Jackson from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara.

Game Over: Must Serve A 60-Day Sentence

Playtime is over for The Game, who began serving a 60-day jail sentence for felony firearm possession.

The rapper turned himself in Sunday night at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility, according to the Sheriff's Department.

The 28-year-old entertainer (real name: Jayceon Terrell Taylor) was convicted last month of possession of a firearm in a school zone. He was accused of pulling a gun on a player from an opposing team during a pickup game at a South Los Angeles school nearly a year ago.

Two other counts were dismissed under a plea agreement, the district attorney's office said. Taylor was also sentenced to 150 hours of community service and three years' probation.
