Britney Spears and Kevin Federline were one of the most noxious couples in pop music history. Their love was much confused from the get-go. But that didn’t refrain Spears from kicking everything she’d worked for to the curb to be with Federline. Unhappily, their love for each other soon weakened. But before these two were involved in gossips and custody fights, a very starry-eyed Spears proposed to Federline in 2004 when they were flying from Ireland to NYC. “All of a sudden I said, ‘What if you want to get married?’ And I kind of went from there to asking him if he would marry me.” Surprisingly, he said no. But only because he wanted to be the one who proposed. He said, “I’d known for a while that she’s the one.” The couple ended up calling it quits three years later.
