Before today we thought the only thing that connected Justin Timberlake and Kevin Federline was their ex Britney Spears. But as it turns out, the duo are buddies — at least according to K. Fed!
"In the beginning when [Britney and I] first got together, it was awkward and I felt bad," JT's former backup dancer told Us Weekly. "I felt like maybe I should have called [Justin] and talked to him. But I didn’t have his number."

But since Brit and K. Fed called it quits in 2007 — they share two sons, Sean Preston, 9, and Jayden James, 8 — the bros have reconnected! "We’re cool. Me and J are. I actually just went to his last show in Vegas and hung out with him, got to see a lot of old friends," the 37-year-old shares.
"My best friend is his choreographer so we have mutual friends, and I mean, we’ve gone out golfing, we’ve hung out," Kevin tells Us. "You get older, you grow up, and you realize that was just a time in your life. Sh-t happens."

In case you need a refresher, Justin and Britney began dating in 1999, before they split in 2002 on not-so-friendly terms (cue "Cry Me a River"). Kev put a ring on the "Toxic" singer's finger in 2004.
So do the boys mention the "B" word when they're on the golf course? "No, no," Kevin says. "Yeah, it is what it is to us."
