Another one bites the dust! Britney Spears and Charlie Ebersol have broken up after eight months together. Now that they’re over, can I admit that I always though Charlie looked like a budget version of Rob McElhenney? It’s true. Anyway, eight months is actually kind of short in Britney’s world. I think that when a dude signs on to Britney, Inc. as the “official boyfriend,” the contract is usually for a year to start. But Charlie was supposed to be different/better, wasn’t he? He had his own life, his own career, his own stuff going on. Of course Papa Spears still had to monitor the relationship, but this one did seem better. And now it’s done.
Britney’s single, one more time. Britney Spears and her boyfriend of eight months, Charlie Ebersol, have called it quits, Us Weekly exclusively confirms. The pair, who started dating in October 2014, last attended a public event together at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in mid-May.
Spears, 33, deleted all photos of her ex from her Instagram account, though many of her Twitter pics remain. For Valentine’s Day, the son of Saturday Night Live co-creator Dick Ebersol and actress Susan Saint James gifted his former love with a massive cake that read “Charlie [hearts] Britney,” and Spears posted it on Twitter, writing, “Cake war over! Charlie wins!!!! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.”
Us Weekly was the first to report the breakup, but People Magazine followed quickly, with a “source close to Ebersol” confirming the split. Much like Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, this breakup seems suspiciously sudden. Britney is forever in love with love, the idea of love and the dream of getting remarried and possibly having another baby, I guess. She goes into every relationship thinking that they’ll get married, and she said as much about Charlie a few months ago.
Brit-Brit posted this IG on Sunday. Hm, looks like Papa Spears is going to have to audition a Southern boy for Britney’s new boyfriend.
