Britney: Not In 'Intense' Romance

03/26/2002 at 01:00 AM EST

In London to promote her first starring role in the film "Crossroads," Britney Spears, 20, reported at a news conference that she was "not in an intense relationship with anyone at the moment," prompting further speculation that her fairy tale love story with 'N Sync singer Justin Timberlake, 21, is over, reports the Associated Press. Despite recent denials from her press agent, tabloids on both sides of the Atlantic have reported this month that the relationship had cooled. Spears and Timberlake, who have known each other since 1993 when they costarred together on the Disney Channel's "Mickey Mouse Club," have been the reigning king and queen of pop since their relationship became public a little more than two years ago. In an interview with the European news channel ITV, Spears acknowledged the public fascination with her personal life, reports Reuters. "People talk about my private life. That goes with what I do. You have to accept that," she said, according to the AP. "But if they ask about it, I say it's none of your business."
