Pop singer Britney Spears has split from her boyfriend David Lucado. The star made the announcement by posting on Twitter "Ahhhh the single life!". A representative later confirmed that she was single again to E! Online.

Britney SpearsThe couple had been together since 2013 but have now split

Britney has been unlucky in love over the years, divorcing Kevin Federline in 2007 and breaking off her engagement with Jason Trawick in early 2013. She had appeared recently to be happy with Lucado, who works at a law firm and was introduced to Britney through mutual friends. Back in November, she told Entertainment Tonight "I'm in love. I like the fact that [Lucado is] very stubborn and he's stuck in his ways. He's just a simple man. I adore him. He's really funny and he's really passionate. I love the fact that anything he's involved in he's passionate about and it's contagious." 

Britney has not revealed why the couple split, but the media has speculated it comes after a video surfaced of Lucado cheating on Britney with another woman.

Spears is currently in the middle of her two year 'A Piece of Me' residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, and it appears she has chosen to focus on this and her two young sons, Jayden and Sean. She was absent from the VMA's at the weekend, but didn't go unmentioned: Katy Perry and rapper friend Riff Raff turned up in matching head-to-toe denim outfits in a homage to the get-up Britney and then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake sported to the event in 2001. Britney tweeted her approval at the tribute: "@katyperry Just when I thought the denim dress had retired....you bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb ;)"
