- Jordan Vogt-Roberts (2015 – 2016) – Brittany briefly dated the director of Kong: Skull Island (2017) which had Tom Hiddleston in the lead role. The two were not a very compatible couple and their relationship ended on a very sour note. In a moment of anger, Brittany went through Jordan’s phone and leaked a n*de image of her ex-boyfriend to her Instagram account. Her ex-boyfriend was quick to take action and his lawyer sent her a legal notice claiming to sue her for revenge p*rn seeking damages if she shared any confidential information or naked images of Jordan online. She was also asked to take down the image she had previously posted.
- Tommy Lee (2017–Present) – The paparazzi first spotted the former Motley Crue drummer and Brittany making out outside a Sushi bar in Calabasas, LA county in June 2017. Initially, Brittany avoided disclosing details about her relationship, but once she was sure Tommy was the one she intended to date, she declared her love for him on her social media accounts. She was criticized and judged by many fans for dating someone older than her by 24 years. She lost about 100,000 followers on Instagram for the same reason. However, she made a YouTube video justifying her choices. She explained that after being through many destructive relationships, she has found happiness after a long time with Tommy. Since people are quick to judge and hate online, the negativity discouraged her from making any more social media videos for entertainment. She declared she was going to place her personal happiness above her online popularity.
