Is Kevin Federline gaining weight on purpose?

A source tells US Weekly that the former Mrs. Britney Spears – who will soon appear on ‘Celebrity Fit Club’ – is purposely putting on weight for a bigger paycheck in the end.

“He thinks that if he goes on the show, loses a ton of weight, and seems really likeable, he’ll get more deals afterward,” said the source. “The way he sees it, he could have another show after ‘Fit Club,’ and that would open the door to working on music again, maybe even a fashion line.”

‘Celebrity Fit Club’ premieres February 14. K-Fed stands to take home $100,000 dollars by participating in the competition.

Other contestants include Shar Jackson, Bobby Brown and Nicole Eggert.
