Being one of the biggest superstars on the planet, we've all seen Britney Spears' love life play out for almost two decades.
Regardless of how they look, all those relationships haven't always been pretty. Still, though, she told an Australian radio show that she's a "hopeless romantic," despite her sometimes rocky relationships.
"Unfortunately, I am [a hopeless romantic]. I've been through horrible relationships, but unfortunately I still believe in love," she told the Rove & Sam radio show. "And you know, I think you should protect your heart and stuff like that. But yeah, I'm a hopeless romantic and I believe in love."
Britney has had many high-profile relationships (remember her rumored flings with Colin Farrell and Criss Angel?). After releasing "Hit Me Baby Once More Time" in 1998, she began dating Justin Timberlake. That ended poorly, as rumors claimed that she cheated on him.
After a 55-hour marriage to her high school pal Jason Alexander in Las Vegas, she of course began seeing dancer Kevin Federline, whom she now shares two children with -- Sean Preston, 10, and Jayden James, 9.
"Instead of following my heart and doing something that made me really happy, I just did it for the idea of everything," she said of her marriage to Kevin in a 2008 MTV documentary.
Following her divorce from K. Fed, her two most stable romances appeared to be her more than three-year relationship with her agent Jason Trawick, whom she was engaged to for over a year before calling that off in January 2013.
She also seemed smitten with producer Charlie Ebersol, as well, and they appeared to be destined for marriage. However, they split up after only nine months of dating in June 2015.
Through all the heartbreak, she said her family and friends have always been there to lift her up.
"At the end of the day, I mean, I love my father, but I was always a mama's girl growing up. I'm from the South, so there's always something about me when I'm just with my girls or even my mother," she told the radio show. "There's just a strong connection there. No offense, men!"
