Los Angeles: Pop star Britney Spears' new boyfriend Charlie Ebersol says overcoming his personal hurdles early on in life has helped him be in a relationship with the singer.
Spears, 32, confirmed her relationship with the 31-year-old, by posting a selfie of both of them on Twitter and captioning with a symbol of heart, reported People magazine.
"My personal life is my personal life, but I will say this: 'If I had not gone through what I've gone through, I would not have been prepared to be in a relationship of any kind, much less in one with someone like Britney, who has the enormous heart that she does'.
"I can't imagine. Everybody deserves to be loved. My hope is that lesson shines forth in this documentary, and in life," he said.
