17 Boyfriends of Britney Spears: Who Will Charlie Ebersol Be Measured Against?

by at .

As we learned earlier this week, Britney Spears is dating again, with Charlie Ebersol.

The music icon, who turns 33 next month, confirmed the news herself during Britney Spears Day in Las Vegas Wednesday, saying, "Yes, there is a special someone."

She didn't offer many more details about Charlie Ebersol, saying, "It's very new."

What's not new is speculation about her personal life. Britney rose to stardom in 1998 (!) and was a Mickey Mouse Club member even before that.

In other words, she's been a public figure for a long, long time.

The fact that Charlie Ebersol follows in the footsteps of 17 boyfriends (several of which became husbands) is a testament to Britney's life in the limelight.

The couple, who met through friends, can't end on a poorer note than her last long-term relationship. Spears dumped David Lucado for cheating on her.

Previously, she was engaged to her former agent Jason Trawick, a romance which fizzled out much more amicably and over a longer period of time.

As for Kevin Federline, he fathered her two kids. That was a pretty strong contribution to her life, even though we still can't believe those two were an item.

All the others that came before and after K-Fed?

Scroll through the gallery above and see what Charlie is up against. Prepare for surprises, because you may not recall or even know about some of these.

Like Reg Jones, the (young) man who hit it first.

Takes you back to simpler times, doesn't it? Indeed. Also, check out this bonus gallery and see why Ebersol is one of the luckier guys in America right now ...
