Before Britney Spears debuted in the industry, she dated a guy named Reg Jones when she was 14. She reportedly lost her virginity to her then-beau, which contradicted her "virgin image" at the start of her career.

Her previous lawyer Eric Ervin told Us Weekly it was only part of her team's PR move.

They started dating in 1995 but called it quits in 1997, months before Spears released her song "…Baby One More Time."

Spears' first high-profile relationship was with Justin Timberlake. The pair met on the set of The Mickey Mouse Club and started dating afterward.

However, they shocked their fans when they announced their split in March 2002. Timberlake released the music video for "Cry Me a River" after the breakup, and it featured a girl who looked exactly like the pop star.

Decades after their split, Spears released her memoir The Woman in Me, in which she disclosed she became pregnant with Timberlake's baby but had an abortion.

"Justin definitely wasn't happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren't ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young," she wrote.

Wade Robson

Spears also spoke about their connection in her memoir, writing, "Brawl is the only word for it — we were all over each other, grappling so passionately it was like we were in a street fight. As I had before when I'd felt too attached to a man, I tried to convince myself in every way that it was not a big deal, that we were just having fun, that in this case, I was vulnerable because I wasn't over Justin yet."

During their marriage, Spears and Federline welcomed their sons, Sean Preston Federline and Jayden James Federline. But only eight weeks after their second son was born, the mom-of-two filed for divorce from Kevin, citing irreconcilable differences.
