So much for bath time. A month ago Britney Spears was telling women that they didn't need a man so long as they had a soak in the tub. Now, it appears she's trading her rubber ducky for a new boyfriend.
The pop star is reportedly dating Charlie Ebersol, a producer and writer who happens to be the son of former NBC executive and Saturday Night Live co-creator Dick Ebersol and actress Susan Saint James.
"They met through friends," a source told E! News. "He is the sweetest guy ever and they are very much enjoying getting to know one another. They are both very happy and having fun. It's just the beginning so no idea if it will become serious but right now they are having a lot of fun together."
In other words, they're not just friends, not yet a couple. You know how it is.
Ebersol, who has been linked to Sophia Bush and Maria Sharapova in the past, has had his own share of drama. In 2004, he survived a plane crash which killed his younger brother, Teddy, and left him and his father with serious injuries. The tragedy inspired his 2013 series, The Moment, which offered people a second chance to pursue their dreams.
Sounds like a keeper, right? And, if not, well, rub-a-dub-dub. (E!)
