Britney Spears is ruining all of K-Fed’s fun.

The pop star is making her aspiring rap star hubby, Kevin Federline, get rid of his pet sharks, according to Life & Style.

Spears, who is expecting her second child with Federline, apparently fears that the six Australian gray nurse sharks are a bit risky when there are two kiddies around the house.

“Kevin loves those sharks,” a family friend told the mag. “He even named them. But Brit said there’s no way he’d be keeping them.”

K-Fed also says Spears is his toughest musical critic. “She gives me her real opinions about my tunes,” he said, reports Passim. “When I get really excited about the songs, she would tell me to slow down.”

Grandma knows best
Justin Timberlake’s granny is revealing why the former Mouseketeer won’t marry longtime sweetie Cameron Diaz: it’s not that he’s too young, it’s that he’s too immature.

The 25-year-old former beau of Britney Spears has been dating the 33-year-old star of “The Mask” for years, but it looks like they won’t be getting hitched anytime soon.

“It isn’t about him being too young,” Timberlake’s grandmother, Sadie Bomar told In Touch Weekly. “It’s how mature you are about marriage and he isn’t ready.”

Notes from all over
Mariah Carey had a wardrobe malfunction during a recent concert. While singing “Fantasy” in Montreal, she stopped mid-song and rushed off stage. Carey came back, explaining to the audience, “The twins didn’t want to stay where they were supposed to.”  . . . Lili Taylor is not a fan of plastic surgery. “It’s getting to the point where I wonder if we’re going to even know what an older woman looks like,” the “Factotum” star tells Women’s Health magazine. “It’s really upsetting and disturbing to me on so many levels. In 10 or 15 years, it’s going to be really scary because then we’re going to see what happens after you’ve had all this plastic surgery. We all know it doesn’t get better — it gets worse.”  . . . Denise Richards is insisting she hooked up with her ex-best friend’s hubby only after Richie Sambora and Heather Locklear had split. She also claims she and Locklear weren’t buddies either. “Unfortunately, my friendship with Heather had ended,” Richards told Bazaar. “I hadn’t spoken to her in a few months. The relationship was not salvageable. Richie and I ran into each other at a restaurant and started talking. If I was still friends with Heather, I wouldn’t have crossed that line. With everything going on in my life, I wasn’t looking to fall in love with anyone. But at the same time, when Richie and I got together, I couldn’t pass it up. I know how hard it is to meet a great guy.”
