Well, that was fast. After a whirlwind courtship that led to talk of marriage, Britney Spears and Charlie Ebersol unexpectedly have called it quits.
Charlie and Britney started dating back in November, and from the start they made it clear that this was no casual fling, and both parties were in it for the long haul.
In fact, it was rumored that the couple was introduced by Britney's dad who had been searching for suitable husband material for his daughter for quite some time.
Old-money Charlie (the son of NBC Sports exec Dick Ebersol and actress Susan Saint James) fit the bill according to Mr. Spears, but apparently, he just didn't pass muster with Britney.
TMZ is reporting that Britney and Charlie called it quits amicably, and there's no bad blood between them. Charlie signed a non-disclosure agreement before he and Britney started dating, so he's legally obligated to keep his side of the story to himself.
As recently as last week, rumors that Britney and Charlie were planning a wedding in Vegas were all over the tabloids.
Now we know that either that report was bogus, or someone had a very abrupt change of heart.
Whatever the case, Britney is officially back on the market. Here's hoping her next guy is better than some of her exes:
