Britney Spears has found herself in headlines over her recent conservatorship drama – which may soon be coming to an end – but also for her relationship with aspiring actor Sam Asghari.

The two have been dating since about 2016 and announced their engagement just days ago, weeks after Spears implied in bombshell court testimony that she wants to have a baby with the fitness enthusiast.

With Spears, 39, set to say “I do,” here’s a look at the star’s previous relationships:

Us Weekly reports that before Spears was a massive star, she had a regular teenage romance with a boy named Reg Jones.

Not much is known about the relationship, but the outlet reports that she was only 14 when they started dating.

Perhaps her most remembered relationship outside of her marriages, the pop star dated Justin Timberlake at the height of their popularity, making them one of Hollywood’s hottest couples.

After they split, Timberlake, now 40, famously wrote the song “Cry Me a River” about their split, seemingly alleging that Spears cheated on him.

He has since apologized for tarnishing her reputation in the public eye.
