Take care, K-Fed.

Kevin Federline was rushed to a hospital in West Sydney, Australia on Monday after complaining of chest pains and an accelerated pulse. Britney Spears' ex-husband has been Down Under filming weight-loss reality show Excess Baggage, and fell ill while completing an Australian football challenge.

"Kevin was at Doonside with the Greater Western Sydney Giants, completing an AFL-related challenge," a spokesperson for TV network Nine said in a statement.

"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."

An EKG test determined, thankfully, that the father of five did not suffer a heart attack. He'll be monitored at the facility until late Monday evening.
