The breakup between Britney Spears and Charlie Ebersol seemed sudden…but now we have the whole scoop.
According to Radar, the relationship between the producer, 32, and Brit, 33, didn’t continue not because Britney seems really, really not intelligent (as I had suspected), but because he just wasn’t ready to settle down:
“Britney had been pressuring Charlie for the last several months about getting married. She is at a point where she wants to have another child, and very much wants to be married again,” an insider reveals to Radar. “Charlie had been very honest about not being ready to get married.”
Eventually, she had to give Char-Char a one way ticket to dumpsville.
“She didn’t want to just keep dating him with no plans of getting married,” a source explains.
“Britney has a lot of issues, and it’s a lot for a young single bachelor to take on,” an insider says. “The fact that Britney is still under a conservatorship is obviously very telling. She can’t manage her own affairs. Charlie didn’t want to become a father figure in her life.”
While Spears is saddened by the split, the insider says, her sons Jayden, 8, and Preston, 9, are also super hurt by the whole thing.
“It is going to be so devastating to those kids because they have now witnessed their mother go through three really hard breakups,” the insider claims. “Britney and Charlie both told them that he was going to be their daddy.”
Ew. I mean, the kids DO have a biological dad: Kevin Federline. I know he has like 7 other kids but maybe that wouldn’t put so much pressure on Brit’s boyfriends? In any case, this seems like a pretty good reason for anyone to break up with Britney Spears.
What do you think of the reasoning behind this high-profile breakup?
