The Pretty Girls star dated fellow singer Justin Timberlake from 1999 to 2002 and wed childhood friend Jason Alexander for only 55 hours in 2004. She subsequently married her former backup dancer Kevin Federline and became engaged to her former manager Jason Trawick in 2011. Despite her string of failed relationships, Britney Spears insists she is still a “hopeless romantic” and still “believes in love.” “I think you should protect your heart and stuff like that,” she tells Australian radio show Rove & Sam. “But yeah I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in love. I like cheesy. I think cheesy is so sweet and nice.”
While the singer is still hoping to find love, she is not focused on dating. “I’m not looking for a man at the moment,” Britney told E! News in June (16). “My boys are my heart.” The singer, who shares two sons with Federline, has been quiet on the romance front recently, following her breakup from boyfriend of eight months, Charlie Ebersol in June 2015. However, Britney will be keeping busy for the next year after returning to the stage at the Planet Hollywood resort in Las Vegas in June (16). The return came as the singer announced she was extending her residency, revealing that her show will now run until February (17). She also released comeback single Make Me last month (Jul16) and it shot to the top of the U.S. iTunes single sales chart just hours after its debut.
