Back before Miley Cyrus was making headlines for twerking all over Robin Thicke at the Video Music Awards, he was said to be hooking up with another pop singer — Britney Spears!
According to reports from In Touch Weekly, a source revealed to the magazine that just ten years ago, Robin and Britney were spending some serious time together. Reportedly, in 2003, they had a fling with each other. Britney was at the top of her game and Robin was trying to get recognized. The source said, “He was trying hard to develop a reputation as a hot, young singer, and Britney was the biggest thing in show business.”
After meeting for a collaboration that never made it to the radio, they “started hooking up.”
From the magazine’s report:
Robin’s reps deny any such relationship. However, the source says that while the “Toxic” singer was newly single, recently splitting from Justin Timberlake, Robin had been dating actress and now wife Paula Patton since high school— a fact he was keeping quiet then.
But it wasn’t meant to be between Britney and Robin. In January 2004, Brit wed pal Jason Alexander in Las Vegas for 55 hours, while Robin, 36, married Paula a year later.
