Britney's New Man: Marc Terenzi
After splitting from N-Sync star Justin Timberlake, Spears has dried her tears and is back in business with Marc, a member of new boyband outfit Natural.
Marc, 21, blurted out pop's biggest secret. He said: "I'm dating Britney. We've known each other for about five years but I've only been seeing her for about two months."
They met before Britney was famous at her manager's home in Orlando.
"She's always great company and we bonded together as friends," said Marc. "We are always there for each other. When she split from Justin we became very close and started to see each other in a different light.
"She's been through a lot with Justin and has come out the other side much stronger. Britney's a great person, she's caring and sexy."
Marc and the band—Ben Bledsoe, J Horn, Michael Johnson, and Patrick King Jr—have already scored a top ten smash in the US charts with debut single Put Your Arms Around Me, to be released in two weeks.
They're now on a two-month promotional tour of Europe—which means the romance with Britney will be on a slow burn.
"It's hard at the moment because we're on opposite sides of the world. But we keep in contact by phone or e-mail. I won't see her for a couple of months but after that we'll try to find some time. We're taking things as they come. Who knows what the future holds?"
