Fans of Britney Spears have waited for a significant period for their idol to reclaim her freedom and escape her father's conservatorship. Since then, the star occasionally reflects on her social media about her strained relationships with not just her parents but also her younger sister. She doesn't hesitate to express strong, occasionally harsh words. She also intermittently mentions other individuals from her past.

Did Britney Spears and Ben Affleck have a romantic relationship?

The autobiography she released last year was not just a bestseller but also a gripping source of material for tabloids. The star didn't refrain from sharing juicy details about her personal life. Among other revelations, she confessed that she was expecting a baby with Justin Timberlake as a teenager. She claims he persuaded her to get an abortion.

On a recent Wednesday or Thursday night, Spears boasted to her followers about having a fling with another superstar, Ben Affleck. Her post of a throwback photo from the mid-'90s featuring both of them and acclaimed songwriter Diane Warren caught the internet by surprise.

He's a fantastic actor. Did I forget to mention that I made out with Ben that night? Honestly, I forgot... Damn, that's crazy!!! It's a shame I can't share the story from earlier evening!!! Oh, I'm just spreading rumors - she elucidated in her post.

International media quickly latched onto the story, sparking speculation about their previously undisclosed relationship. The editorial team of the "New York Post" sought comments from representatives of both Spears and Affleck, but thus far, no responses have been received.

Meanwhile, Britney appears to believe there's little to gain from dredging up old stories from two decades ago, especially considering Affleck's current relationship with Jennifer Lopez. The controversial photo was promptly deleted from her Instagram.

However, it's known all too well that nothing truly disappears from the internet. Spears' fans saved the photograph of her with Affleck and shared it on fan-based accounts. The question remains: did they make a good couple?
