Another day, another bombshell from Britney Spears.

The pop star, 42, casually revealed she once made out with Hollywood heart-throb Ben Affleck, 51, back in her heyday.

Spears made the shock claim while sharing a throwback photo of herself, the actor, and renowned songwriter Diane Warren on Instagram.

“Cool pic of me and Ben Affleck and Diane Warren years ago!!!” Spears wrote in the caption. “He’s such an amazing actor. Did I fail to mention I made out with Ben that night … I honestly forgot … damn that’s crazy!!!”

“Wish I could tell you guys the story that happened before that!!!” she added. “Oh dear, I’m just being a gossip girl.”

While Spears did not serve up more details on the surprise encounter with Affleck, who is now married to superstar Jennifer Lopez, last year she did shed details on her fling with another Hollywood star: Colin Farrell.

In her memoir The Woman in Me released last October, Spears detailed her steamy tryst with Farrell, who she was linked to after her break-up with Justin Timberlake in 2002.

Spears and Farrell, 47, were introduced by a club promoter while he filmed the blockbuster S.W.A.T in 2003 and the pair had a “two-week brawl”.

“Brawl is the only word for it — we were all over each other, grappling so passionately it was like we were in a street fight,” she wrote in her memoir.

“As I had before when I’d felt too attached to a man, I tried to convince myself in every way that it was not a big deal. That we were just having fun, that in this case I was vulnerable because I wasn’t over Justin yet.”

Spears had a high-profile romance with Timberlake between 1998 and 2002, but their relationship again entered the spotlight last year when she released her memoir.

In its pages, she recalled her heartache when she fell pregnant during their relationship, but Timberlake did not want the baby so Spears had an abortion.

“It was a surprise, but for me it wasn’t a tragedy. I loved Justin so much,” she wrote.

“I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I anticipated.

“If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it,” she added. “And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father … To this day, it’s one of the most agonising things I have ever experienced in my life.”

As for Affleck, he dated Lopez from 2002 to 2004 before marrying actress Jennifer Garner in 2005. They would go later split in 2015 after three kids and a 10-year marriage, and Affleck would go on to reconnect with Lopez in 2021.

Affleck and Lopez were married the following year.
