Britney 'rushing new romance'
Britney Spears is said to be "petrified" of being alone for the rest of her life.
The 32-year-old star split from her ex David Lucado in August after rumours he had cheated on her, but she's already moved on with TV producer-and-writer Charlie Ebersol.
Things are said to be going well with the pair and she's even thought to have introduced her new beau to her kids Jayden and Sean, who she has with ex-husband Kevin Federline. But it seems those close to her are wary of her moving on too fast.
"Brit has admitted to pals she's petrified of being alone and hates being single. While Charlie is a great guy, her friends fear she needs some time on her own before rushing in," a source told British magazine Closer.
"Brit insists Charlie is different from all of her exes. He's a TV and film producer, as well as an entrepreneur with his own company. He's also great with kids and has made it clear he's ready to settle down and have a family."
This relationship comes after rumours of a romance between Britney and one of her backing dancers, Willie Gomez, who takes part in her Piece of Me Las Vegas residency. While the blonde star is said to have enjoyed her brief fling, it's more serious with Charlie than it was with Willie.
"Britney has known Charlie for years through her dad, Jamie. But after going out for dinner recently, the pair struck up a romance," the insider added. "She had fun with Willie, but she couldn't fight her feelings for Charlie, and things have become serious very quickly."
