Jason Trawick waited until he scored Britney’s Vegas deal, ‘had enough money to end it’


I’ve been surprised by how many stories People Magazine has run about Britney Spears and Jason Trawick’s breakup. There were four stories in People just last week. The first couple of reports framed the split in terms of normal couple problems, like habituation and too much time apart. Then the last two seemed to place the blame squarely on Britney, claiming she was jealous, insecure and “treats him like a friend, not a romantic partner.”

People’s stories were in contrast to Radar Online’s accounts, which claimed that Britney’s father and Jason, her two co-conservators (Jason has since resigned as Britney’s conservator) conspired for Jason to break up with Britney, and that they sugar-coated the version he told her, so much so that Britney wasn’t sure their relationship was even over. I mentioned that the timing was suspect to me, particularly since Britney had just left X Factor after the season wrapped, and was on the verge of signing a big contract, reportedly worth over $100 million, for a residency at a venue in Vegas.

US Weekly had a story I wanted to mention which jibes with Radar’s version and seems to sum it all up for me. They claim that Jason was behind the big new gig for Britney, that he planned to ditch her “for months” and that he waited until he had a nice cut of her would-be earnings to end the relationship. That’s so cold. Here’s their report:

Britney was blindsided! Though the singer, 31, said in a statement January 11 that she and fiance of one year Jason Trawick had “mutually agreed” to end their engagement, sources insist Britney Spears never saw it coming. “He had been planning to break up with her for months,” says an insider. Trawick, who also comanaged Spears’ career, “was using her. He made a big deal for her to get a residence spot at Caesars in Las Vegas, then finally had enough money to end it.” He also cut ties as her coconservator, resigning just hours after split news broke. Adding to Spears’ angst? Her exit from The X Factor, announced less than 24 hours earlier. Though Spears says leaving was her decision, she was, in fact fired, as US first reported in December. Still, the embattled singer is trying to move past the drama. “She has her kids and a lot of work coming up,” says a pal. “And she’s going to be set up on dates with cute guys soon!’

[From US Weekly, print edition, January 28, 2013]

Doesn’t Britney have anyone in her life who isn’t using her? As usual, I came away from this story just feeling sorry for her. Plus she’s going to be “set up on dates with cute guys.” I expect a photo op soon.

Incidentally, as Britney’s co-manager, Jason probably made around 5-10% of her contract with Ceasars. (If it’s gone through, we haven’t heard about that yet.) That’s 5 to 10 million dollars. Not a bad payoff for a two year relationship. The creep.

    I’m sorry to say it but I’m not surprised at all. I think anyone who is looking to get romantically involved with the Britney-Brigade is looking to cash in. Period. She needs so many years of therapy, I’m guessing to be emotionally stable. I beleive they keep her slightly sedated and bring in those Britney bucks. Poor thing at a young age never stood a chance

    • T.C. says:

      I felt this way from the beginning that the relationship was too convenient for everybody, Brit, the guy and her Dad. It reeked from day one as not a real relationship but a business deal.

    • 'Sup? says:

      Oh Brit! Good riddance, girl. He can roll the 10 million in one dollar bills and shove each and every one of them where the sun doesn’t shine.
      Brit: time to get the energizers and take your life by the horns (no baphomet pun intended). If the $100 mill Vegas gig is something she wants ro pursue then by all means do it. Maybe she’ll get to meet a mega millionaire dude who can see beyond the dollar signs and love the real Brit.

  2. The Original Mia says:

    This relationship was suspect from the beginning. He seemed more like her babysitter than her boyfriend. If he did indeed secure a Vegas deal for her, then I don’t see what’s wrong with that. She wouldn’t be traveling. She would be in one location with a set schedule. Britney falters when she’s left to her own devices. So, this is me…not feeling sorry for her on that aspect.

    I do feel bad for any woman when a relationship ends, but theirs seemed to be breaking down over the last month. I don’t think anyone expected them to get married.

    • lucy2 says:

      Everyone else, no I agree on that, but given that he proposed to her, I’d guess she expected them to get married.

      • 'Sup? says:

        Exactly! I don’t get Brit’s father. I am a mom to a beautiful daughter and I can not fathom letting my own girl become emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically attached to a gigolo who would put on such a farse, go as far as to propose and then cash out when his “stock” reached the value he wanted. How will this break up help Brit with her issues???? This is unnecessary damage, for crying out loud!!! Wasn’t there a way to keep Brit single yet stable and productive???? Of course if the trauma of losing Jason can be used to further Brit’s Monarch programming, maybe in that twisted way it would make sense. Or was she in with the farse, too? Gee!!!

    • BestJes says:

      I’d bet that Britney was well aware that this was a PR only relationship. She never seemed even remotely interested in Trawick. It was a handy front to suggest she was all fixed and better now but her eyes always screamed FAKE when she was with him.

  3. smartyparty says:

    Ooh I love what Brit is wearing, she looks best when she lets her inner hippie shine through.

    I can only guess at what really happened, none of us really know, but she looks relaxed and content in the last few candid shots we have seen. That makes me happy and hopefully she will just get on with her life.

  4. RocketMerry says:

    Well, I know I’m in a minority, but from what her life seems to have been these last years I gather he kept her safe, stable, focused and working. He was like a (paid) tutor, which I think is ok if she had some understanding of what the relationship was really about.

    My guess is they all knew, although maybe Britney had a more confused notion of it.

    • littlestar says:

      I’m in the minority with you too. I’ve always felt that Britney seemed much more stable/content with Jason in her life. After all she had gone through previously, I think he was a positive in her life, conservator or not. Maybe it was more of a business relationship than a romantic one, and if it was, so what? All relationships are different. So far Britney seems to be doing fine, and with her mental health issues, that’s all that matters.

      • epiphany says:

        +1. There’s no way this was a genuine, romantic relationship; Trawick was put in place with the approval of Britney’s family to keep her in line – whether Brit thought this was a real romance is another story. The fact is, Jason DID provide stability when she needed it most, and it seems he did a pretty good job. I have to think, however, that the crazy came out in some fashion – most likely in their private time – and he just couldn’t deal with it anymore. Now that he’s gone, I expect we’ll be seeing shades of Britney circa 2007.

      • Tazina says:

        I totally agree. Jason was there with her through thick and thin, helping her through some bad times. Britney has said herself how supportive he has always been. Just because they broke up doesn’t mean there are all these ulterior motives and wild scenarios. He hasn’t been working as an agent since he’s been with her, and now he’s looking for work again. Cut the guy some slack….wild speculation is dumb.

    • LAK says:

      Ditto!

      I will only add that I always thought the idea of a romantic relationship between them suspect, creepy bed video aside. Normal couples put aside their romantic relationships when one falls ill so it becomes a care-giver/patient type situation. What kind of person knowingly starts a romantic relationship with a sick person. We can be polite about it, but Britney is on meds that keep her sedated. I’ve always thought Jason was a caretaker rather than a romantic partner.

    • lin234 says:

      I agree. I think her parents knew that the relationship between them was more business than love. And I believe Britney got a more murky version of the truth for her sanity’s sake. They probably put it in place because Britney is the type who needs a constant man in her life. I don’t think she can be alone – or at least during that crazy period in her life.

      I don’t think Jason really loved her but it was probably a good thing in her case – there was no passionate feelings that got in the way of his responsibility. Who knows if she’ll ever find someone who will love her for her and not her money. But at least she has her dad looking out for her and with her money she’ll be well taken care of for the rest of her life. It’s more than what some people have.

      He did get a payout but at the same time he helped stabilize Britney enough for her to earn even more millions. Everyone kind of wins in some way.

    • The Original Mia says:

      I’m in the minority with you because she’s done better in these last years than during her breakdown years. He provided a stable relationship for her & her kids. She hasn’t been as drugged as she has in the past. I don’t think he’s a bad guy. He just got tired of being with her. It happens to the most mentally stable of us.

    • fabgrrl says:

      I agree with you all, for the most part. I think that this situation was good for her. But think of the children! Those are young boys who, I’d imagine, thought they were getting a new dad. How terrible for them, if this was a sham.

  5. Riana says:

    I just don’t see this guy as the villain everyone wants him to be. This was the most stable relationship she had. She wasn’t out going to night clubs all the time or going to every red carpet. You only saw her when it was an event she was actively working in or with her kids and family.

    It would be like if Lindsey and Samantha Ronson stayed together, Lindsey turned her life around and then everyone started trying to paint Samantha as some awful person.

    The irony is if he’d dumped her and went to every media outlet labeling what a mess she was and he couldn’t take it anymore he’d be getting all the sympathy votes.

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah, I don’t see him as a bad guy either. He did seem to keep her grounded, and for that, he deserves a bit of applause.

    • dd says:

      “The irony is if he’d dumped her and went to every media outlet labeling what a mess she was and he couldn’t take it anymore he’d be getting all the sympathy votes.”

      He wouldn’t do that publicly as it would look terrible for him considering the industry he works in. He also signed a confidentiality agreement in exchange for a nice chunk of change. Keeping publicly quiet wasn’t about kindness but about self preservation.
      Trawick still found a way to leak unflattering stories about her to various outlets anyway. Not worth your praise and defense, Riana.

      • Riana says:

        Is there anything concrete to go with all this negativity though?

        I would accept he was a bad guy if there was something people could point to more than speculation. Britney became huge during my childhood and I remembered how badly she fell when she was at her worst.

        I haven’t been paying much attention but I have doubts there could ever be a story as unflattering as shaving her head and flashing a semi-hairy punani.

        What has he done as a matter or proof or what downswings in her physical, emotional, or visible health can someone point to that would lend some credibility to all the hate for this dude?

    • Samigirl says:

      Cosign. He can’t win. I think Jason was a great, stabling influence on Britney. That being said, for no money, I’ll take care of her. She can come live with me and I will mama her. That’s what she needs. Someone who loves her for who she is, not her $$$$.

      • pamspam says:

        I always feel the same way when I read about her. I just want to let her move into my place, sleep on my couch, have some normal time. She totally triggers my almost non-existent maternal instinct.

      • Hakura says:

        @Pamspam & Samigirl – I’m with you both on this. Even about feeling the ‘stirrings’ of (my mostly nonexistent) maternal protectiveness. (& I’m a few years *younger* than she is o.O)

        For all the wonderful things that came with success, my opinion is that the negatives outweigh the positives every time. The worst of which is never knowing if you can trust anyone, having certainly been used/hurt/& badly disappointed countless times already.

  6. carrie says:

    since Jennifer Aniston is not pregnant or Brangelina doesn’t break every week ,the “journalists” write much on Britney Spears’s break-up

  7. QQ says:

    Those Pointy Probably no socks on Brown Boots are just a Horrible Harbinger of things to come

  8. lucy2 says:

    So is he still her manager and conservator? Ick. This is why people need to keep business and personal stuff separate.

  9. Ally says:

    So he made the Vegas deal and took his cut as manager, how is that using her?

    I don’t think there’s a bad guy here just a sad girl in a sad situation.

  10. brin says:

    Sad. I just wish Britney well.

  11. dorothy says:

    That poor girl has the worst fashion sense when it comes to shoes! What a disaster.

  12. Annie says:

    I never trusted this guy. The entire time he was in her life I found him shady and the fact that he was allowed to by a co-conservator really creeped me out. Thank God Britney never gave him kids.

    Enty at CDAN mentioned this outfit as a sign that she’s trying to rebel through clothes again and people were like Hell noo! You’re exaggerating! But I agree because her clothes were perfectly chosen before and now she almost had a wardrobe malfunction, and this is the kind of othes and stuff she did back then and before Jason.

    I’m not saying she’s headed for a breakdown but it’s sad how she needs so much supervision. I just don’t think she’s well. One part of me thinks she should retire, but having a sister with similar issues I know that work is very important and their state deteriorates when they don’t do anything.

    • Eleonor says:

      Being unemployed can drive anyone crazy, I bet for her keeping it up, having a working routine, having the feeling to accomplish something is very important.
      I only want to say something nice: her body looks good.

    • Angelic 20 says:

      Annie,
      I don’t really follow her life but what exactly Brittany have? I never read anything about what mental health diagnosis she received? I always thought she just got a little overwhelmed with the children and marriage . What mental illness she is suffering from? Thank you in advance.

      • littlestar says:

        They’ve never actually come out and publicly confirmed that Britney does have mental health issues. Given her past behaviour, we all just speculate as to what she might have (perhaps it’s possible that she doesn’t have an illness, but I think that’s highly unlikely). One of my old clients was a psychologist, and years ago during Britney’s very public breakdown, I asked her what she though was wrong with Britney. She speculated that Britney has some sort of personality disorder, and is not bi-polar. It’s just speculation of course.

    • littlestar says:

      I disagree. Britney’s parent seem to truly care about her and her well being (they are definitely NOT Lohan’s). I don’t think they, and Britney’s dad especially, would have let Jason Trawick become her conservator if they felt he was wishy-washy or potentiallly using her. I think they knew he could help her and be a stable and positive influence in her life. Look at her previous relationships – there was huge tabloid coverage about them. With Trawick, not so much. Which I always took to be a good sign – that he wasn’t using her.

      • Annie says:

        Maybe it was a business deal and the relationship was a plan to make her seem healthy. I just never saw them as a real couple. Something here doesn’t fit.

        And yes, people criticize Jaime Spears but that man is the reason Britney is alive and well.

  13. Starlight says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with it. He kept Britney safe and together. He actually did a very good job at rehabilitating her again.

  14. SCREEEE says:

    Weren’t there some awful rumours that he was sleeping around the whole time? Gross.

  15. dd says:

    He didn’t rehabilitate her life her father did. All he did was become her pr boyfriend whilst making tons of money off of her. He doesn’t deserve to be congratulated for that. Besides from all of the stories reported in tabloids he wasn’t even that particularly kind to her & was a total d!ck.

  16. Cathy says:

    I feel bad for her. I hope that someday she finds somebody who will truly love her even with her problems and not for the money she brings in.

  17. Cowgirl27 says:

    You all don’t see what is wrong with it???? Really??? What is wrong with it is that people being untrue to her, and her not knowing who really cared for her and who to really trust is exactly what sent her over the mental cliff in the first place. That is what is wrong with it. If Jason was ‘only’ representing himself as a manager and was taking a managers cut and it was totally and clearly presented to her that way – then I would have no problem either. But what is ‘wrong’ with this is he was a man who was ‘engaged’ in a romantic relationship that had control of her millions of $$ and just used her for personal financial gain and dumped her ass when he found a nice easy way to profit from her…anybody else see what is wrong with this? Just one more person to cash a check.

    • Riana says:

      Um, that description seems one step away from a soap opera plot line.

      Britney is no Lindsey. She hasn’t been getting tons of magazines covers, tv shows, or putting out music. She’s barely seen or heard from. If he was really trying to use her for the sole purpose of getting a cut then he’s quite lazy and small minded. He could have turned her out in such a way he made a fortune in a year alone.

      Also that’s not really why Britney broke down. She has a mental disorder which was magnified by previous handlers, drug use, and equally disturbed friends and boyfriends: Sam Lufti, Lindsey, Paris.

      • Josie says:

        She doesn’t need to get tons of magazine covers and be all out there, she was still the highest earning female pop star last year.

      • Riana says:

        She was the highest earning by earning exactly 1million more than Taylor Swift.

        Jason used to work for Taylor Swift and her latest album sold more copies than any other act since 2002. So Jason left a guaranteed paycheck gig working for a young act with a strong fan base who’s latest album sold more than anyone else in 10 years to nickel and dime his way to gold digging through B.Spears?

        That just doesn’t make sense.

  18. hey u says:

    How is he a creep???

    He was her manager, made a profitable deal for her which he is also entitled to some percentage as her manager … Whether he was dating her or not as long was he was her manager and got that deal for her its natural that he would get some percentage.

    And i don’t get this jason hate… Look if the dude doesn’t want to be with her , is better that he did end it, rather than marry her on a lie, so he could continue being her manager and getting money off her for the rest of their marriage.

    I actually think he did her a favor, she might not think so now but in the long run she will

  19. Sumodo1 says:

    What an exit strategy! Golden parachute, to boot. Yes, this was a “working” relationship–it worked out for both of the. Britney got her career back and Jason scored some dough.

    I’ll bet her next “relationship” will be with her new agent/manager.

  20. Kim says:

    Well if married her he would have access to more money.So the story is BS IMO

  21. Jessica says:

    Her body guard here is HOTT!!!

  22. erika says:

    god pls and readers, lets pray for britney’s safety! mentally and physically

  23. Louise says:

    I will never believe, unless you show me hard evidence, that Jamie Spears is a bad guy. Britney has very real problems, and she is his daughter. The parents made big mistakes by being too permissive when she was a kid, but they have stepped up now that she’s fried. Do you even know that performing is all she has to keep her stable? That was HER dream, not theirs. I’m sure life would be much easier for her parents if she just wanted to retire and live in Kentwood. Why do I even care??? UG. Britney would be a disaster w/o her parents. Bash anyone else, but omg, give them some credit.

    • Meredith says:

      Jamie had a real problem with alchol when Brit was growing up and it destroyed his marriage to Lynn Spears. Then he got clean and he has tried to make amends for the harm he did to the family earlier IMO. He is trying to be a good father and look after Brit’s life, money. I think the current arrangement (conservatorship) works as well for her as anything else and it should stay in place.

    • Cece says:

      I don’t think permissive was the right word. They allowed her to be sexualized at a very young age and failed to protect her when she needed it most. Seems like it took them a long time to realize that her sanity is more important than her earning potential, but even now the priority seems to be her career over all else.

  24. Ambergesa says:

    I always though he was a creeper. Doesn’t anybody remember he had a girlfriend for at least the first year of their relationship? She came out and said he mocked Brit and said it was nothing but a job. He being her fiancé seemed like a carrot to get her to do XFactor. Then he jumped out with a golden lined parachute. He seems like such a p. o. s. using someone as fragile and mentally unwell as Britney. It’s horrifying, I bet he’s already got another girlfriend and has for sometime. He just wanted to fleece his pockets a bit more.

  25. improve2 says:

    Why do people believe every printed stories. For one, he has nothing to do with the Vegas deal and Britney does not have any deal on the table yet. She’s still in talks with different hotels but nothing is set yet for him to have made any money. people keep saying that Their relationship was set up by her dad, FASLSE!. Those two were having flings after her marriage to Kevin in 2006. They were always friends with benefits before her breakdown. I tend to think they became closer and decided to explore the relationship, her parents might have encouraged her that he was a nice person and she also trusted him, which is where the relationship grew from professional to personal. If he earned money while working for her, it was deserved because he did his job. People will believe anything because they don’t believe a man will love someone with mental illness. Britney is not as naïve has people think. She might not say things publicly, but is more than aware of what goes on in her life. Maybe they were just never meant to be just friends and they both realize that now. Well I guess those are not juicy theory enough.

    • BestJes says:

      Good point about people’s weird (and offensive really) assumption that just because Spears demonstrably has some mental issues that it couldn’t possibly have been a real relationship. Do these same people think anyone with bi-polar, schizophrenia, anxiety, personality disorders etc is living a love free life?

      My 2 cents is that this wasn’t the real deal but that’s based on Spears looking like she was under sufferance in every photo of them together and is looking a lot happier now. I think she couldn’t wait for it to be over. It’s not based on some judgmental and clueless view of mental illness and what that means.

  26. skuddles says:

    Someone used Britney Spears for money? How unheard of!

    Too bad Brit couldn’t shake off all the leeches (including dear old Dad) and live her life the way she wants for a change. But Ms money-bags has to get her ass on stage so everyone can keep on dipping into the profits.

  27. Kittykat says:

    Jokes on us… I dont believe they were ever together! This was all a publicity stunt to help crazed poor Brit out.

  28. Madriani's Girl says:

    Trawick definitely resembles a younger, hairier Matt Lauer.

  29. d says:

    Ug, these stories. I’m inclined to believe that relationship was ultimately a business arrangement that started out as friendship because Britney liked and trusted him, and was encouraged by her parents because he seemed to be good for her. It all had good intentions. But I also think the reality of such the enormous task of taking care of Britney got to be too much for him. I really do think there’s something wrong with Britney that she really does require 24 hour monitoring. Whether it’s because of a mental illness, or child star gone wrong from over-indulgement on everything, or both, only her teams knows for sure. And I’ll bet her team also put out a lot of misinformation with the intention of protecting Britney and her brand as well.
    I don’t know though that coming clean abuot a mental illness would hurt her brand. I think she’d get a lot of support.
    So maybe it’s something else, like she’s just fried from all the drugs she did and has major self control problems and what have you, which is a yuckier story and one they’d rather not have out there. THAT would damage her brand. Hence all these “leaks”, which are more mis-information and untruths than anything else.

    • Boo says:

      Agree. I think it’s a way more complex situation in reality than ANYONE outside of Britney and her parents know – and her medical professionals. There are reports they were friends and her father trusted him. The arrangement (behind the scenes support system) has run its course and kept her and her career and kids safe. The report also says that Brit and Jason are both still friends. It was probably agreed by her and her father to let Jasin broker one last deal out of loyalty as it wouldn’t be fair to allow someone to do it. Jason was paid for the Vegas deal as anyone who does the same job would. So what? I’m sure he brokered a really good deal for. Celebs and their teams will leak all types of stories to blur the truth. In this case I don’t think it’s anyone’s business. I hope she stays healthy and finds real love but that may be hard for her right now.

  30. jilly says:

    OK so he was a paid babysitter. All he did was make sure he got a severance package before ending the contract. Big whoop.

  31. TheTruthHurts says:

    GMAFB Trawick was not using her. Talk to anyone who is friends with him (like I did) and you will hear he is not that kind of guy. People forget he was an agent at WME before leaving his job for her. Hello, he used to rep Taylor Swift, he is capable of having a career & making money. Britney needed him, it was well known, the relationship as a couple just didn’t work out. Simple as that.

    • Katija says:

      I’m also in the pro-Jason camp. I didn’t know he used to rep Taylor. Jeeeeeeeeze. If he left that gig to devote himself to Britney full-time, how can you possibly bash him? Remaining Taylor’s rep would have been a bigger cash cow than the path he chose.

  32. Katija says:

    I may be in the minority here, but I think they met each other during a time in their lives where they needed one another, and the relationship ran its course. And I don’t think Britney’s hurting. This may be REALLY shallow evidence, but after every breakup, Britney has ballooned. And when I saw that third picture, the side shot, it’s obvious that she’s losing weight, and fast. I actually said, “yeah, girl!” when I saw it.

    I don’t think Jason or Jamie are bad guys. I think even if Jason was never passionately, crazy in love with her, he was good for her when she needed him, and she’s learned what a normal relationship and breakup is supposed to be like. Maybe the “boyfriend conservatorship” is creepy, but honestly… her dad was in charge, and he appointed her boyfriend to be in charge as well, so that Britney could have a SEMBLANCE of normalcy, with her BF making decisions instead of her dad.

    Her dad is pulling the strings on everything, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing at all. I think her dad is a normal, blue-collar guy in an incredibly surreal situation, who is handling this new duty like an absolute champ. Then you have someone like Michael Lohan, who if memory serves me was a Wall Street guy, who does the worst possible job in a similar scenario…

  33. bea says:

    Good riddance. I too cannot help feeling sorry for this young woman, which is weird bc I couldn’t name a song of hers if you held a gun to my head.

    Another curious thing – how is it that she dresses/looks bad all the time? She’s attractive, nice body, plenty of money – yet she always looks sloppy and never wears anything flattering.

    It would be great if she had even one person in her life that was there for good and not evil. Her situation always makes me think of Francis Farmer……

  34. Anna says:

    oh, I disagree.

    this was a business relationship. I hope Jason is not a creep. but he was put in as Brit Brit’s conservator only for business reasons, which Britney knew about.

    Apparently it was supposed to end eventually. He got her back on her feet again. That is no small accomplishment.

    Once again, sucked in by the Hollywood Media. Britney was not used, she was helped.

  35. Patrice says:

    I really don’t understand the hate-on that so many people are having for Jason for finally wising up and getting the hell out of that mess of a situation. I’ll be the first-and have been-to say that it was entirely inappropriate for him to have even CONSIDERED getting romantically involved with someone so unstable that they were living under a government/medically appointed conservatorship (and who in their right mind would want/agree to signing on as their ‘lover’s’ legal guardian?! Yuck.)

    However, can you imagine all the over the top, strange stuff that the guy must have put up with/steered Britney away from over the years? (It seems like Jason was always more of her parent than a boyfiend from the start.) I guess according to some though, the only way he wouldn’t have been a ‘creep’ would be if he what? Actually married or stayed with her indefinitely despite wanting out?? I mean, seriously? In addition, Jason was Britney’s acting manager at the time of the Vegas deal and she’s a huge star. Should he have forfeited his salary because of the break up? I don’t at all buy that he “waited for the Vegas deal to go through” to end things. Remember, Jason had plenty of money from managing other big celebs long before Britney came along. (Besides, I think it was Star magazine that was reporting he wanted out around 6-months ago before she had even appeared on X-Factor.) I just don’t get where some people are coming from about all this…

    It’s not surprising that her dad pulled him in as a co-conservator. The parents have to find substitutes since the odds are high that they will die before Britney. Jason seemed like a good bet since he has a long history with Britney but also knows how to deal with money. This is a concern for every parent with a child who cannot be completely self-sufficient due to disability – what will happen to their child after they die? They need to protect her against the Lufti’s of the world. Her huge fortune is a dirt magnet.

    I think Brit’s dad has become his own Co$ he now is in the business of finding her boyfriends. It was obvious from day one and now with all this news breaking that her father set this up and Jason was a paid boyfriend and was paid very well to leave.

    I wouldn’t blame the guy entirely. If he hadn’t taken control, she wouldn’t be here today. She was a mess, could probably still use early retirement if she had some place else to go than her family. I personally wouldn’t want to get involved at all business-wise with a hillbilly family. It would be too stressful. He did, propped her up and if he wants to go, then a pat on the back is more in order. No one would have stepped in like he did.

    Based on her recent Lucky interview, she either (i) had a nervous breakdown that has left her somewhat brain damaged; (ii) is heavily medicated; and/or (iii) is uneducated and dumb after spending her childhood being an entertainer instead of connecting neurons in her brain.

    By definition, I don’t think you could be a healthy, intelligent adult man & want a relationship with this woman. Casper Smart & Britney would be a perfect match.

    Jason’s camp spinning it that he “wanted to make sure she had a huge deal so that she would be secure and taken care of for the future after he left; it wasn’t about HIM making money” in 3, 2, 1…

    Folks who are bashing Jason are clearly forgetting what Bertney was like at the height of the cray cray. Bitch was out of control. That said, I have always wondered if she wasn’t happiest with K-Well-Fed. He was so gentle with her while robbing her blind. Lol!!!!

    I have always been a true Brit fan. It’s no wonder she’s a little koo-koo with EVERY.SINGLE.PERSON….in her life USING her!!! The parents, K-fed, Jason the Joker. Ugh!! Who wouldn’t have mental issues?? I hope she holds it together this time. Her meltdowns are painful to watch. And for the love of God… steer clear of men for a while!!!
