Is Jason Trawick looking to call off his engagement to Britney Spears?

I don’t think there’s any doubt that all of us, collectively, want the best for Britney Spears. She is a very sympathetic figure, and when we debate her career and life options, I feel like we’re all trying to assess what’s best for her and her state of mind. Many of you have had mixed feelings about Jason Trawick and whether or not he was good for Britney. My take: yes, Jason has been good for Britney overall, if you’re just taking him as her caretaker and manager, as someone who cares about her wellbeing and tries to help her out. But I’m so wary of Jason because he “proposed” to her (possibly as a reward for getting through her tour) while she is still very much under her personal and professional conservatorship. Not only that, but Jason is now Britney’s legal co-conservator, jointly with Brit’s dad Jamie Spears. Some said it was love. Some said it was a money grab. Some said it was just sketchy.

Anyway, Hollyscoop has an interesting exclusive about Jason and Britney and whether or not this engagement is going to last.

Hollyscoop has learned exclusively that Britney and Jason are about to split and get this, Britney doesn’t know about it! A source close to the couple has told Hollyscoop exclusively that Jason has had enough and wants out of the relationship.

“Jason has told Britney’s entire family that he’s planning to leave her, so that Britney will have a support system when he breaks the bad news,” the source tells us.

Jason is reportedly waiting for “The X Factor” to be over, because he and her whole family think Britney will take the news real hard, and would rather not have her deal with it while she’s trying to film the show. But here’s the weirdest part, Jason reportedly wants to remain her manager after the break-up. So basically their relationship will become strictly business. Pretty sure Britney won’t want him on payroll after he dumps her, but he has been great for her career, so who knows.

Jason used to be Britney’s agent, but when they became a couple, he left his agency in 2011, dropped her as a client, and solely became her manager.

A second Britney source added to Hollyscoop, “I haven’t heard anything about [the split], but I do know they are going on vacation together for the holidays.”

That doesn’t necessarily mean they are staying together. Jason could just be taking advantage of their last vacation as a couple or he thinks a post-vacation break-up will soften the blow. If memory serves us correct Brad Pitt and Jen Aniston dropped the big bomb on us a week after the holidays as well.

So, is Jason looking for a way out? Did he simply take on more than he could handle with this engagement? Does he miss the “business” side of managing Britney, and he’s tired of the day-to-day struggles of managing her? Or is this just a random split story, signifying nothing? Well… my gut says that Britney and Jason probably won’t end up getting married. I could totally be wrong, but I feel like Jason and Jamie kept organizing these “rewards” for Britney to get her to do all of this stuff (record an album, go on tour, sign on to the X-Factor), and it’s gotten beyond their control.

    He gives me the creeps. I never have liked this relationship, but that thing he did, mumbling at her from the bed, just skeeved me out. I believe he’s using her with HIS best interests at heart, not hers.

    I feel so sorry for her. Her eyes are haunted.

  2. Minnie says:

    I do wish her the best. She looks miserable in the first 2 pics, happy in the last. Retire Brit, move home, relax and be happy!!!

  3. bea says:

    How much money does this woman have to make before she can retire?! She always looks awkward and uncomfortable. It’s probably the meds.

    That guy is a skeezer. He probably wants to quit bc he figured out if he effs around he’ll get caught by the paparazzi (they’re the morality police now)

  4. dcypher1 says:

    She always takes the most akward pics its funny yet sad at the same time. She always looks uncomfortable and nervous.

  5. mel2 says:

    I wish the best for Brit and hope this story isnt true.

    “Hollyscoop has learned exclusively that Britney and Jason are about to split and get this, Britney doesn’t know about it!”

    Um. She will now…..

  7. Kaye says:

    Is she so insulated by her “handlers” that she would not read/hear about this story that’s front and center on the internet? Or at least, “Hey, Brit – I hear you and Jason are breaking up?”

  8. lisa2 says:

    when I look at Brittany and even Mariah they both have this off target thing. Recovery takes a long time. And Mental Illness doesn’t care how much money you make.

  9. dahlianoir says:

    He doesn’t want her to know and yet tells the media ? Riiiiiight.

  10. mln76 says:

    You can’t have have a happy relationship with someone you treat like a child. Let her go home and spend time in peace with her kids. Everyone has made enough money.

  11. jenny piccolo says:

    Maybe she just doesn’t take good pictures. I don’t think her photos indicate that she is miserable or uncomfortable. She enjoys show business and working, & I think she does what she wants & is basically happy for the most part. Hey, I enjoy some good celebrity gossip but this made up Britney Spears speculation gets on my nerves. I don’t know why I read it…

    • Nan209 says:

      Look at pictures before her break down and after. There was a confidence and ease that isn’t there now. She doesn’t look like she enjoys show biz anymore and that she is doing these gigs b/c she is told to do so.

      I feel terrible for her. I don’t trust her parents (after all they put a child to work and made money of that child). I don’t trust her manager/fiance/conservator. Too many people in the their hand in the cookie jar.

      • jenny piccolo says:

        You know what Nan? You’re probably right. Any ‘pop star’ (or anyone for that matter) who would wear that purple turtleneck with sweat pants out in public probably is warped & in need of a serious break. I stand corrected.

      • Sapphire says:

        How in the world can you “tell” from random pics that this women doesn’t like show biz anymore, is co-erced, exploited and all the other garbage.Like “they” won’t let her retire. Did she ever say this to anybody at any time? Or is this a “I can tell from her eyes”?

        We do know what happened when she was not medicated, did not have a conservator and was not treated-she lost her kids, was at serious physical risk from her buds, was a serious risk to everyone on the roads and melted down requiring 5150 in-patient. Is that what you feel she wants and needs?

      • Nan209 says:

        Calm your ‘mones. This whole website is based on speculation on images and short little interviews. It’s a flippin’ opinion one you don’t share – BFD. Don’t get in such a twist over my interpretation over Spears tight faced smile. It’s not this is the real world.

  12. Jean says:

    She looks so cute in the last picture. It’s weird how sometimes she looks old & other times she looks like a teenager. I hope that if they do break up that Britney stays single & finds herself before jumping into another relationship. Who knows, she might be sick of him too.

  13. Suzy from Ontario says:

    She seems so broken and sad. I don’t like this guy either, I think he’s sketchy and if he is planning to break up with her then her family should go back to court and get him taken off as any kind of conservator. That kind of relationship wasn’t good anyways. He had too much power over her for their relationship to be equal and healthy. Yes she needs help but… I hope she finds someone who truly loves her and wants to be with her.

  14. Vesper Lynd says:

    I remember that time a few years ago when Brit, Paris and Lilo hung out together and many called it the Bimbo Summit. Back then they still had the media and a lot of misguided people eating from their hand. Now it’s funny how there is a post for each one of them here in Celebitchy today, seeing how their lives have turned out: Brit trying to keep it together, I guess from all three she has at least a dad that gives a damn about her and her money and her 2 sons who i’m sure love her inconditionally. She shoild find some fulfillment from it. Then you have Paris, from hook up to hook up, no more TV shows and her 15 minutes of fame are gone baby, gone! And Lohan is the one whose life turned out the worst, chased by uncle Sam for her tax debt, facing jail, DUI’s and a family that nobody would wish on their worst enemies.

  15. phlyfiremama says:

    Start running and don’t look back, Britney! He was your jailer, not your partner~don’t keep him on as a conservator, either! That whole situation has been so creepy all along~

  16. Abigail says:

    When you compare how happy, relaxed and pretty she looks in the last photo, when she’s just casually walking around with how uncomfortable she looks with every photo taken of her at an event or X Factor shoot, it becomes clear that this poor girl should just be allowed to retire. I will miss her music — no one makes a better dance/workout track — but I can’t imagine she is happy doing this.

  18. RobN says:

    It’s quite possible that Britney is somebody that requires the structure of work in order to stay mentally well. Lots of people want her to retire and enjoy herself, but not having that structure might well be the worst thing in the world for her. I hope this is just your regular, everyday, break-up story; stability is a good thing for somebody like Britney.

  19. Ravensdaughter says:

    Hasn’t she always had a man? She will be dangerously vulnerable after the break-up, which seems destined to happen. Her handlers can only control her affections so much.
    Love the pic with the Yorkie!

  20. Rhiannon says:

    The last pic looks so throwback pre head-shaving britney. I hope she makes it. She seems like a gentle soul caught in a tornado.

  21. Madriani's Girl says:

    Dear God, what is with her mental condition that she’s THIS micromanaged???

  22. Jay Elle says:

    I think she’s heavily medicated. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was diagnosed with something way more severe than we think– schizophrenia perhaps, or DID (multiple personality disorder).

    I love Britney and hope for the best for her. I feel so sad for her sometimes…

  23. kay says:

    I thought they were just together to get her through that trial and lawsuit situation. the whole conservatorship being extended, etc etc.

    and now that it’s dismissed, the engagement is off, her conservatorship ends.

    I never thought it was a real relationship anyway.

  24. the original bellaluna says:

    Poor thing. This just makes me sad for her.
