Federline hospitalised with chest pain

London: Singer Kevin Federline was rushed to hospital after suffering from chest pain during a recording of weight loss show "Excess Baggage".

The 33-year-old ex-husband of singer Britney Spears was filming for the Australian TV show when he complained of chest pains and a racing pulse. He was taken to the Mt Druitt Hospital in West Sydney Monday.

"Kevin (Federline) was at Doonside with the Greater Western Sydney Giants, completing an AFL-related challenge," contactmusic.com quoted a source as saying.

"He did this challenge, which was running and catching the ball, then while his in-series weight-loss partner was taking the same challenge, he reported chest pains and a racing heart. Obviously on this show we have a lot of paramedics on standby and they treated him for the first signs of a minor cardiac arrest, called an ambulance and had him taken to hospital," the source added.

The singer underwent an ECG test and it was found he had not suffered a heart attack. He was still being monitored.
