    Kevin Federline's heart hurts, and it's not because Britney Spears is engaged to another man!

    The backup dancer turned reality star is participating in the Australian weight-loss reality show Excess Baggage, but according to the program's Facebook page, his goal to get healthy hit a roadblock over the weekend. 

    A statement on Excess Baggage's Facebook page said K-Fed, 33, was "taken to the hospital after the show's medic was concerned about his high pulse rate." The hospitalization was a "precautionary measure" while doctors performed further tests.

    This isn't the first time K-Fed's battled the bulge. In 2010, he joined VH1's Celebrity Fit Club in an effort to lose some of the 85 pounds he gained after his 2006 divorce from Spears.

    He lost 30 pounds during his stint on the show, but from the looks of things, he's gained the weight back—and then some.

    That said, we're glad to see he's working his way back to a healthy weight. Eat well and commit to fit, K-Fed! Sean Preston and Jayden James—along with his other three children from ex Shar Jackson and current love Victoria Prince—want their dad around for the long haul.
