Even though Kevin Federline seems to have put his partying past behind him, there’s one party he’s still up for: His birthday bash in Las Vegas.

On Friday night, Britney Spears‘s ex-husband took a break from parenting to ring in his 30th birthday at Pure Nightclub – the same place he celebrated his birthday last year.

As he entered the club, a dapper-looking Federline – wearing a chic gray suit – said he felt “great” about turning 30. Flanked by a group of 20 pals, including his family and attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, Federline headed straight to his VIP table where he was greeted by ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson.

Throughout the night, Federline and his group sang along to tunes by Jay-Z, Kanye West and other hip-hop artists. At one point, the deejay played Federline’s own “Lose Control,” a song familiar to the club considering its music video was shot there in 2006. Close to midnight, Federline danced on the couch at his table and held up a California license plate that read “FDRLINE”, all while drinking Jack Daniels.

At one point in the evening, the birthday boy grabbed the microphone for a rambling profanity-laced speech in which he encouraged everyone to have “a good time. ”

“I lost my voice at the craps tables and I lost all my money,” he went on to say in a raspy voice, before a friend dragged him away from the mic.

He left the club just before 2 a.m. and headed back to his Caesars Palace suite. On Saturday, Federline is expected to return home to Los Angeles, where sons Preston and Jayden remained in the care of a nanny and a bodyguard while their dad went to Vegas.
