Britney Spears: I’ve Been in ‘Horrible Relationships’

Britney Spears isn’t letting a few bad ex-boyfriends stop her from finding true love. According to the singer, she’s single and ready to mingle.

While speaking on Australian radio show Rove & Sam this week, Spears admitted that she’s still looking for Mr. Right despite having been in “horrible relationships” in the past.

“Unfortunately I am,” she says of her relationship status “I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in love.”

“I’ve been through horrible relationships,” she continues. “But unfortunately, I still believe in love and that sort of thing … But I think you should protect your heart and stuff like that. But yeah, I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in love.”

Spears, whose most famous loves were Justin Timberlake and Kevin Federline, adds that the best way to her heart is through romantic clichés.

“I like cheesy,” she admits, adding that she loves a good mixtape. “I think cheesy is so sweet and nice.”

Previously, Spears dated WME agent Jason Trawick for four years before ending their engagement in 2013. She was also linked to David Lucado for a year, but parted ways with the bartender in 2014 after he allegedly cheated on her.

Spears latest relationship was with producer Charlie Ebersol. Last year, they broke up after eight months together.
