Britney Spears seems like she is doing alright after her recent break-up with TV producer, Charlie Ebersol, whom she dated for eight months.
The pop singer shared a happy picture on Instagram of her and her youngest son, Jayden James Federline. She also posted a quote which reads: “Make today so awesome yesterday gets jealous.”
A source close to Ebersol said to People the split did not come as a surprise to anyone, including Spears and the producer: “It was obvious to everyone that it was going to happen. They’re still friends.”
Another source mentioned that they might have broken up because of busy schedules, “Relationships are hard. Sometimes they don’t work out. These are two very busy people leading two very busy lives. They’re focusing on other priorities right now.”
The source added that people around the couple thought that Ebersol would ask the singer to marry him but it didn’t happen as they grew further apart.
Hollywood Life exclusively claimed that Spears’s father, Jamie Spears, might have stepped in as he reportedly did not want his daughter to marry again.
The report said that her father liked Ebersol but he did not think that his daughter was ready for another marriage and reminded her of what could happen especially after she had a mental breakdown and even lost custody of her children.
“As long as Jamie’s breathing, he’s going to talk to Britney and convince her of what she should do. Luckily, Britney’s listening to him,” the source said.
The former couple who kept a low profile during their relationship, only displayed their affection on social media by sharing sweet photos of themselves, Daily Mail reported. However, the report noted that Spears recently deleted all of their pictures together on her Instagram account.
They were last seen together in public during 2015 Billboard Music Awards.
