Britney Spears' Cringe Break-up is so Tragic!

Brit's ex Charlie Ebersol is soo tragic

Social media has made it simple to ascertain who’s the dumper and who’s the dumpee in any breakup. The latter is prone to posting extra-cute images of themselves (“see what you’ve lost?”) while over-sharing pointed prose aimed at their ex with the subtly of a brick. 

Britney’s Spears’ boyf of eight months, Charlie Ebersol, ticks all the boxes of a man kicked to kerb, thanks to the recent Instagram video of him making “love me” eyes at the camera while cuddling a puppy. As though the footage alone wasn’t bad enough, he added: ““We are nothing if not a collection of the scars, tattoos and smiles of a life well lived. I wish for you today, that you find great joy in the joy you spark in others. If nothing else, I hope you're happy just in knowing that you made me happy…” Cringe!

My parting tip for the broken-hearted: if you must plumb the depths of your despair, do it via private message.
