Britney Spears confirms new romance

BRITNEY Spears has confirmed her "new" romance.

The 'Perfume' singer - who split from legal researcher David Lucado in August after 18 months of dating - confessed she has started seeing someone "very special" after reports emerged earlier this week she was dating Charlie Ebersol.

She told E! News at Britney Day in Las Vegas: "Yes there is a special someone. It's very new."

The 32-year-old singer - who was introduced to Charlie by mutual friends - is said to be "having a lot of fun" with the producer and director.

A source said: "They met through friends and although they're not yet super serious, they're having a lot of fun together."

Charlie, 31, was previously linked to Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova in 2008 and dated 'One Tree Hill' actress Sophia Bush in 2012.

News of the blossoming romance may come as a surprise as Britney recently insisted that she was enjoying the single life.

The 'Criminal' singer said: "I am pretty damn happy right now.

"It's all about setting yourself a goal and going for that and just being motivated and staying true to yourself."
