Britney Spears is spilling the tea on her past relationships in her new memoir, The Woman in Me, and one of the most juicy revelations is her fling with actor Colin Farrell.
In an excerpt from the book obtained by Page Six, Spears reveals that she and Farrell had a passionate two-week romance in 2003, shortly after she split from Justin Timberlake. Spears writes that they met through a “club promoter friend” and immediately hit it off.
“We were all over each other, grappling so passionately it was like we were in a street fight,” Spears writes of their relationship. “Brawl is the only word for it.”
Spears says that she was still reeling from her breakup with Timberlake at the time, but she couldn’t deny her attraction to Farrell. “I was in love with Justin,” she writes, “but for a brief moment in time, I did think there could be something there with Colin.”
The fling was short-lived, however, as Farrell reportedly told Spears that he wasn’t looking for a serious relationship. Spears says that she was “disappointed” but understood.
“I guess I just needed to let go and have some fun,” she writes. “And that’s what I did.”
