Britney Spears has confirmed she’s dating Charlie Ebersol. “Yes, there is a special someone,” she told “Extra” during a special “Britney Day” celebration in Las Vegas on Wednesday. “It’s very new.” Spears was awarded a key to the city, where she is in the midst of a wildly popular residency at Planet Hollywood. The singer declined to say more about her fledging romance with Ebersol.

Ebersol is the son of the legendary NBC executive Dick Ebersol, and works as a television and film producer. He’s focused on reality TV programming that includes “The Moment” and “The Great Escape.” In 2004, he survived a plane crash that killed his younger brother Teddy and others; Charlie saved his father from the burning wreckage.

Spears most recently dated David Lucado, who cheated on her with a porn star named Cali Lee. In September, Gossip Cop busted an OK! report claiming Spears was under a six-month “dating ban.” On Wednesday, Gossip Cop corrected a false National Enquirer story alleging that Spears was hoping to get set up with a man through Patti Stanger of “Millionaire Matchmaker.” Her confirmation of the Ebersol romance continues the pattern of Gossip Cop being right about things and those places being wrong.
