Jason Federline (better known as J-Fed) was a member of the first band signed to Red Bedroom Records by Peyton Sawyer. He clashed with Peyton and Haley over the musical direction of the band and subsequently quit the label with the rest of his band, except for Mia Catalano who pursued a solo career with Red Bedroom. He dated Mia for a short amount of time, but she later broke up with him after he quit Red Bedroom Records. He later reappeared causing trouble at Tric. During the night, he danced with Carrie. After he slapped Haley James Scott's butt, he and Nathan Scott got into an argument, during which Quentin Fields stepped in and punched J-Fed.
