On November 8, pop superstar Britney Spears tweeted a picture with her new boyfriend Charlie Ebersol. The picture was captioned with a heart emoticon, confirming prior rumors that the couple were dating. On November 5, Spears talked to Extra about the rumors, saying, “Yes, there is a special someone. It's very new.”
Back in August, Spears split with David Lucado. She even told the crowd at one of her shows that Lucado cheated on her. Britney is no stranger to troubled relationships, but it seems her and Ebersol are a match made in heaven. A source told People that the couple are taking things slow. Both of them have busy careers after all.

Britney’s new man, Charlie Ebersol, is a 31-year-old entrepreneur and TV producer. He is the son of Dick Ebersol, who was also a TV producer and is one of the co-creators of Saturday Night Live as well as the president of NBC sports. Charlie has been keeping quiet about the relationship, but he has been following Spears on twitter.
And while Ebersol hasn’t spoken at length about his relationship with Spears, he did share the picture on Instagram with the caption “#happiness”.
Despite her troubled love life, Spears still plans on settling down someday. Last year, Spears said in an interview, “I’d like to have more kids, settle down... have kids – maybe twins – and get married. That would be nice.”
Will there be wedding bells in Spears and Ebersol’s future? Only time will tell.
