E! News has reached out to Colin’s rep for comment but hasn’t heard back. However, back when he was attending the premiere with Britney in 2003, he told reporters that the two were “not dating.”
“She’s a sweet, sweet girl,” the actor said, per Entertainment Weekly. “There’s nothing going on—just mates.”
In the past, Britney also acknowledged that what she had with Colin was purely casual.
“Yes, I kissed him,” she told W magazine in 2003, months after they fizzled out. “But it was nothing serious.”
Colin went on to welcome son James, 20, with model Kim Bordenave and son Henry, 13, with his Ondine costar Alicja Bachleda-Curuś. Meanwhile, Britney shares kids Sean Preston, 18, and Jayden James, 17, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
