Britney Spears reportedly ‘calls off’ her planned December wedding

Like with many stories about Britney Spears, CB and I have different thoughts on the current round of gossip about Britney’s relationship/engagement to Jason Trawick. CB’s take is that Jason is a sketchball who probably fools around on Britney. While I agree that could be happening, I think there’s a “reason” why Jason might be getting some on the side – perhaps because that’s the arrangement that he and Britney have always had? I tend to believe that Jason is now and has always been more of Britney’s caretaker than her boyfriend/fiancé. But tabloids still try to convince us that Britney and Jason have a for-real relationship, and that the relationship is rocky/weird/sketchy. Which might be true. Who knows? Us Weekly claims this week that Britney wants Jason to “check in” more:

He won’t be a slave for her! Britney Spears’ constant demands that fiance Jason Trawick “check in with her” have him fuming, a source tells Us Weekly.

“The romance is gone,” says the insider. Trawick, 40, “puts her on speakerphone so friends can hear her nagging.”

(A rep for the X Factor star, 30, denies this, and an insider insists, “That’s not Jason’s style. They’re happy.”)

But the source contends there’s turbulence ahead: “I’d be shocked if they got married.”

Spears, who is a mom to Sean Preston, 7, and Jayden James, 6, (with ex-husband Kevin Federline) got engaged to Trawick in December 2011, but have yet to set a date.

[From Us Weekly]

I don’t know… it sounds kind of reasonable in this particular situation that they BOTH would want to check in with each other, right? And isn’t’ Jason WITH Britney on the set of The X Factor anyway? As for the wedding… it’s my understanding that Britney, Jason and her team were waiting until all of the legal issues with Sam Lufti were over before they got married – and Lufti’s case was just thrown out of court earlier this month. So what’s the hold up?

Britney Spears and Jason Trawick had planned a romantic and intimate winter wedding, but after incessant fighting between the two, the impending nuptials have been called off, is exclusively reporting.

“Britney and Jason had planned to get married at the end of December, but they have been fighting non-stop so the wedding has now been called off,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.

“They are telling their friends it’s being postponed, but they will probably never make it down the aisle. Britney doesn’t think Jason is any fun and resents him because he acts more like a second father than a romantic partner, or equal.

“Britney and Jason have been sleeping in separate bedrooms for a very long time. She has been staying in a hotel during the week because of the live X Factor shows, and although Jason stays at the same hotel, he is in a room adjacent to hers. Jason feels like he is Britney’s babysitter and it’s pretty much just a business arrangement at this point. Jason does love Britney and the boys, but he just can’t see himself spending the rest of his life with her,” the source says.

“Britney’s parents are absolutely devastated that the wedding has been called off,” the source continues. “Lynne is very close to Jason and views him as one of her children. Meanwhile, Jamie feels that Jason shouldn’t have proposed to Britney if his heart wasn’t in it, and feels a little betrayed. It doesn’t help matters that both Jamie and Jason are co-conservators of Britney. The whole situation is just sad for everyone.”

[From Radar]

Yeah. I believe this. Maybe not the details about “calling off the wedding” but I believe Radar’s assessment of this relationship. It’s more of a business relationship, and he’s more like her caretaker, emotionally, romantically and legally. Remember, Jamie Spears allowed Jason to join as joint conservator for Britney, and the judge cosigned it. So even if Britney says “the wedding’s off!” it’s much, much more complicated than that.

    Sad, but Jason always gave me a bad vibe.

  2. Zigggy says:

    Her eyes are so sad.
    The co-conservitorship with her fiance & father is creepy. A boyfriend/fiance/husband might have your best interest in mind at first but relationships change- I’m happily married but I wouldn’t want my husband to have that kind of control over me.

    • Jackson says:

      Agree with everything you’ve written. And her eyes remind me of Princess Diana’s, back in the day, when she was still married. It just all seems so sad.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Agree. Her eyes look sad and lifeless. :(

    • ojulia123 says:

      Her eyes are SO sad!! It’s hard to look at pictures of her.

      • Anaya says:

        Britney has sad puppy dog eyes. Just like those poor abused puppies at the shelter that need love and a happy home. I just want to give her the biggest hug. :’(

      • Sassy says:

        My first reaction to the pictures, was this – “her eyes, her eyes”. I know someone who was on psychiatric meds and Britney’s eyes are just the the same. This girl is a poor soul – I hope to God that her conservators are really doing their job. The court supervision should insure that she is protected. Re: her performing, I had mixed feelings, thinking that she was being used, but now think that it is a good idea that she be allowed to venture out in society doing what she can do, which is perform as a singer/personality. Her self esteem and frankly, something to do, are aided by her participation in “real life”.

    • GoodCapon says:

      Agree :(

      I feel like watching Baby One More Time on YT later. I miss the old Britney!

    • Charlie says:

      I wonder what kind of meds she is on. Anti-psychotics give that look – the sad, lifeless eyes with no affect, and the bloat. I feel for her. You have to be really, really ill to be on a court-ordered conservatorship for that long. IT’s extremely difficult to prove that that person is incapable of making their own decisions. And yet, for some reason, it is still ok for her to be working in the spotlight, raking in millions of dollars that she does not control. What are the ethics of that?

      • Anon73 says:

        re : meds, remember her drug addiction a few years back ? after a few attempts at rehab failed, they moved her to perscription meds to manage the drug cravings. that is why she’s a zombie. but instead of saying “Britney’s a drug addict, having her cravings staved off via legal medications”, they play it as psychiatric meds. IE, there is nothing wrong with her mentally. she just never conquered her drug addiction. it’s essentially been replaced by putting her on this legal medication which numbs her out – drug cravings and all.

    • bettyrose says:

      True, but she’s still very pretty. Her face in these pictures has a very soft, natural quality that is all too lacking in celebrity world these days.

    • The Original Genevieve says:

      ITA w/ everything in this post.

      Britney’s personal life is a riddle inside an enigma, wrapped up in a paradox. Whatever is really going on behind the gates of her cloistered Thousand Oaks mansion will probably never be revealed. At this point, I can’t decide whether Jason Trawick is part of the problem or the solution.

      Every time I see this girl, she arouses a deep well of pity within me. Who cares about the homes, the $$, the celebrity status? If she doesn’t have her mental health, how much happiness can any of these things bring?

      I truly believe that this fragile little creature needs everyone’s prayers.

    • Stuart Horsely says:

      Depression/bi-polar meds will do that. She is heavily medicated. My god, she has aged. By the time she is 40 she will not be looking good.

  3. Lucy says:

    She looks sedated as hell in these pics

  4. dorothy says:

    Always struck me as a business arrangement, in light of her problems. She will never be the same and will most likely always have to be cared for in one way or the other. Poor girl.

  5. lin234 says:

    I’m not so sure he’s not going to want to make it down the aisle. I remember he lost a ton of weight to get Britney interested in him. I think he’s in it for the long-haul and has an eye on her fortune.

  6. Victoria1 says:

    Awe poor Britney! Run girl and live off the radar these people are greedy and robbing you of your soul.

  7. apsutter says:

    I agree with this assessment of their relationship too. I feel really sad for her and don’t tend to have the highest opinion of Jason. She deserves a partner who wants to be her equal and wants to love and take care of her. Not one who is legally abligated to do so.

  8. aims says:

    I think it’s very possible. She always seems that she has to be handled very gently, or she might break. Maybe she should be single, work, take care of her boys.

  9. Christina says:

    The only thing I can focus on in this post is how horrible her bangs look. What hairstylist would do that to her? She looks like she is a good 10 years older than she is. I am not so sure about her eyes looking sad, more like drugged. She looks like she is taking some sedatives for sure. The picture with the weird crystal wreath on her shoulders…she looks like one of the Jersey housewives friends that is only on the show sometimes. I don’t feel sorry for her. She is not a child anymore. All her dumb decisions are hers alone. I am sick of everyone being like “Oh Poor Britney”. She is bat shit crazy and looks like shit, but in the grand scheme of things her problems are no bigger than the rest of the population.I would say she needs to get over herself, but honestly, I think it is the paps and society that need to get over following her every move. Yawn. She is boring. I think she is the most overrated performer to ever exist. She cannot actually sing without massive amounts of auto-tune. Sure, she has had catchy songs and can dance…but there are plenty of performers out there who can out do her on that anytime. I have never understood her appeal.I will give her this: She was funny on SNL and How I Met Your Mother.

  10. epiphany says:

    I never believed these two were actually a couple. He was hired by her family to keep a short leash on her – and I’m sure was paid well for his time. Brit has serious mental health issues, and her family should remove her from the scrutiny of public attention and allow her to work on those issues, not to mention adjust her medication.

  11. the original bellaluna says:

    It’s a shitty deal all around. I really feel for her.

  12. dcypher1 says:

    Free britney. No one should be controled by anyone. Britney has the right to say no I cant do this even if everyone is making her. Im glad she stood up for herself and said hell no this isnt rite. Free britney from this tyranny of conservatoship.

  13. Lem says:

    I don’t think anyone under conservership should be married. The very nature of which states one is not fit for decision making. Jason wanting to marry her is creepy. Like that guy who dates all my not yet divorced friends. Skeevy.
    Who would want a wife unable to stand on her own? Nobody I would want to be with.

  14. Mayday says:

    I just wanna say I’ve been watching her on x-factor and she is killing it on live TV. I’m seriously impressed. She’s doing a better job than Khloe Kardashian, who screws up constantly and you can tell Britney is really enjoying mentoring the younger kids. It’s makes me think she’s probably a pretty good Mom.

    • Rux says:

      I was just going to post the SAME THING. We have been watching the XFactor all season and the beginning was a bit awkward with her faces but the LIVE part she is freaking awesome. It’s like the old Britney is coming back. Maybe they finally got her meds cocktail just right this time.

      As for the wedding stuff, ehh, I am not putting any stock in it. I think they’re fine.

      • Jayna says:

        I agree. We were all talking at work how nice it is to see Britney on the show doing good. I think they got the meds more evened out about a year ago. I saw her and Simon on a couple of talk shows. The entertainment one in the afternoon I think she and Simon were teasing each other and she sounded so good. She was good on Jay Leno too.

      • Lulu says:

        I’m sorry but, she has a concealed mike in her ear. All she is doing is parroting what someone else is feeding to her. To anyone who says “free Britney” I would assure them that the woman crying in the gutter with a shaved head was the free Britney.

    • pau says:

      Mayday, you can’t actually believe that Britney does any of the coaching, do you? This woman can’t wipe her ass without permission. She does her camera duties and then she fucks off. C’mon now

  15. Lem says:

    ? Since he is basically legally her decision maker – can he make her marry him?

  16. MJsinAustin says:

    Brit, girl you need a normal, non-fame-money-whore type of guy. Someone not in the business that loves YOU for YOU. Not your money and the power that comes with being your handler.

  17. trudiebell says:

    she’s aging sooooo fast it’s really sad.

  18. Mimi says:

    I live very close to Brit’s hometown and even saw her once at a pumpkin patch! Her kids rode the hayride with my little boy lol. I have to say she looks even sadder in person. She didn’t go on the hayride and sat n her car most of the time. She is treated like a bird locked in a cage. Kinda pisses me off.

  19. GossipG says:

    i didnt even look at the pics before commenting…SHE LOOOKS HORRIBLE, god pls save her!Can someone call the FB/ CIA?Its like she’s been KIDNAPPED and heavily drugged. HELLO,how can the people around her stand by her, and let her selfdistruct like this, WAKE UP BRIT BRIT!!!

  20. Quinn Parker says:

    Clearly, she’s not floridly psychotic (anymore) and can function well enough to limp along on live TV…so, she’s pretty lucid, I would guess. At some point, Britney has to take control of her own life and say, “NO MORE”. Until she does decide to make decisions for herself, she will feel powerless. And don’t say “she can’t”…no one can MAKE you perform. She could be pushed out on stage and STILL not perform. It’s still a choice she’s making.

    • Annie says:

      I agree, as much as this girl has lived such a controlled life I do think there has to be something going on at her end, some sort of very wounded psychology which makes her subconsciously want to give up her own power. She’s never tried to fight the conservatorship has she? That tells you something about her.

  21. Diva says:

    Its hard to look at her now compared to how she use to be. That situation is sketchy

  22. LadyMTL says:

    Seriously, I just want to give this woman a hug. I don’t really know how to verbalize it but she kind of makes me think of a scared puppy…she just wants to be liked and for no one to kick her anymore. Does that make sense? Maybe I need more coffee. :p

  23. Annie says:

    Dayam, this news is sad – I guess I kind of wanted this relationship to be real even if kind of knew it wasn’t because I wanted Brit to be happy and have some freedom. Freedom seems like something she’s never had even before the conservatorship.

  24. wale says:

    Britney all she nid is d ryt partner nd she shuld focus on her music

  25. bea says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever consciously heard a Britney Spears song, but for some reason I feel supremely sad for her. She looks unhappy and uncomfortable. She seems like her parents are both failures at parenting. This “fiance” seems like an opportunist (altho I’m glad to see him blocking that up-skirt pics on the golf cart). She needs to retire and enjoy her kids with or without a man. The comeback will be there when she needs more money (but she shouldn’t).

  26. Erin says:

    FREE BRITNEY!! this is sad all around. I just feel so, so bad for her. Her whole life, she’s been used by people around her; I think she truly used to love performing but those around her drained that love from her. I remember how vibrant she used to be – this current version of Britney has none of that spark.

  27. G says:

    Every smile is so forced now and somebody stole the light right out of her eyes.

  28. Ginger says:

    Wasn’t she diagnosed as bipolar? If she is on heavy meds that could account for her sedated look. But really, you do get used to the meds after a while so I don’t get it. She does have that “trying to put on a smile for the camera’s while dying on the inside” look in her eyes. If she is that bad off that she needs constant care why are they putting her out there? She should gracefully retire…I’m sure she can afford it. It might make her happier, less pressure.

  29. anemon says:

    The fact that she looks extremely sad doesn’t have to mean that she is surrounded by people using her.
    She has the look of a deeply depressed person. I’ve had a family member looking like this, and I have also had a depression period myself. I know that my eyes did look like that then. I saw it and people would comment on it too. After my “adventure with depression” I’ve learned to recognize people that are going through thins like that. Eyes don’t lie, even if you’re laughing.
    But only by the look of a persons face, you can’t judge her family. They can do all they can, and even more and not be able to get her out. And the poor huggable person can also be extremely demanding and act unfair towards loved ones.

  30. Axis2ClusterB says:

    Wow. I know it’s been said so many times, but she looks so sad.

  31. themummy says:

    Lutfi. LUTFI. Not Lufti.

    That’s all.

  32. pau says:

    She does look sad :(

    It is hard to watch her squirm and be so uncomfortable on TV or doing press. My brother has mental illness issues and I cannot imagine him being hung out to dry for the public all the time. Who is her management team? Can we talk about this? Obviously they are squeezing every last profit from her until she gives up entirely, “cmon Brithey, just one more deal and you can do whhaaattevvverr you want, promise” She doesn’t care anymore. If it were up to her, she would have moved to the backwoods in Louisiana, with her kids and would wear the same sweatpants day in and day out.

  33. Grace says:

    Poor Britney. She needs to find another executor that the court can trust, cut ties with all of the parasites in her family, and move back to the South with her kids and money.

    Jason is a douchebag. She can do better.

  34. Amory says:

    Why isn’t her family’s priority getting her back to being a mother to the kids? Does she even see them anymore? It’s been a loooong time since they’ve had a little photo op together.

    Forget working — she doesn’t need the money, but she’ll deeply regret having such a limited role in her kids’ lives.

    • Jayna says:

      Physically she’s had half custody for several years now. What does she need a photo op for? Say what you will about K-Fed, but he never went after her and tried to take them permanently. He wanted the kids to have a mother. It’s why her parents are fond of him. As soon as she got better she eventually physically had back half custody. The kids were with her on tour a lot in the summer last year along with her mom and sister visiting. The kids were seen in the audience sometimes and they even came on stage once. She loves those boys and probably was the driving force to get better and stay healthy for.

  35. d says:

    I don’t know. Her whole life is depressing. I DON’T think she really wants to go back to Louisiana though. I watched one of those documentaries about her a while back and there was a question about her moving back and she kind of danced around it, but my interpretation was that she’d rather stay in LA (nicer surroundings, not dead-endy, lots of stimulation, etc.). I think it would be hard for her in Louisiana, and we all know what small towns are like. I don’t know that she’d have close friends there either. I really feel sorry for her. I do think also that her parents and people did her a disservice though by not teaching her to be accountable for her actions. It’s true that there’s a feeling of treating her with kid gloves, but i wonder if that’s what led her down the wrong road to begin with. Did anyone ever teach her/parent her about doing the normal things (homework, laundry, cleaning up after yourself, cooking, etc., etc.,) so that you have some grounding? I feel like she grew up without any kind of boundaries and normalcy and is like a 30 year old teenager. Plus, mental illness. There’s definitely something going on because she behaves so strangely. It’s just wierd and sad/ I hope not, but I think she’s going to end up as one of those tragic Hollywood stories.
    And I second what someone said about being around mentally ill people. You can feel sorry for them and want to help and all of that, but it can also be exhausting and sometimes they can be real jerks too. And much as I think Britney can be really sweet, I also don’t doubt that she can be real handful. Nothing about her life has led her to the point of normalcy. i think the worst thing about her life is that she doesn’t know who to trust. I think she thinks she can trust absolutely no one. And i wonder how she deals with people who do tell her the truth, straight up. Can she handle it?

  36. Jayna says:

    I hate to hear this. He was a huge part of her finding normalcy and balance in her life. I would hate to see Britney go off her meds and the manic part comes and she’s back on drugs, screwing unsavory characters, massive depression. She’s come so far but she has an illness. Britney can’t be alone. I would hate to see this go south.

  37. kelly says:

    Britney is immature and has a load of issues she needs help working through. OF COURSE Jason would feel like a baby-sitter and of course Britney would feel like he is a second father. Their pairing struck me as father-daughter from the very beginning anyway.

    In Britney history, when she starts feeling suffocated or held back or restrained, she tends to rebel. How long until she does something to put her kids, her conservatorship, and HERSELF in jeopardy again?

  38. Amber says:

    Her smile is not hiding how miserable she looks.

  39. Lemonade says:

    i wish they would let her quit showbiz. yeah, she’s still a moneymaker and i like that she picked herself up after her meltdown and came back ok.

    but she should be able to retire now. she’s been at this 15 years and sacrificed her mental health for those millions. she should just be left alone to her babies, frappachinos, cheetos, and uggs. she doesnt need to work anymore

  40. sirsly says:

    Wow, she looks like a long term, over-dosed, amphetamine / Adderall user. Her emotions are simply gone. Shut down. Only depression left to gain from those drugs anymore. That’s what happens.

    She needs a new doctor asap… wean her off. Poor girl is lifeless.

  41. Jene Bolivar says:

    Always enjoyed reading the comments on this site; felt I had to chime in… while I can’t speak for Brittney’s case, as a fellow “mentally interesting” person, I have to say that you have to be F’D UP to be assigned a conservator. There are protections in place for the mentally ill that sometimes are to their detriment (cannot force someone to take medications, or receive treatment, even if the person would be healthier under care, taking regular meds). It can be heartbreaking for a family to try to help someone who is sick, only to be told their loved one is an adult, and has the right to refuse treatment. And Brittney would have access to better treatment and representation than your average person, who would have probably ended up on the streets if they acted the way Brittney did during her very public meltdown. Mental illness is not something you are treated for, and then can stop meds/walk away from it when you look/act more normal – it’s not like a crutch for a broken leg that you can toss aside once you heal. Mental illness is forever. Also, maybe SHE feels better working than sitting at home with the kids. Maybe it helps her feel more autonomous and competent to be working in her field. I guess we’ll never know (or e entitled to know) the full story. But I do wish her well…

  42. Jennifer12 says:

    She was such an amazing entertainer, so full of life and sparkle. It’s terrible to see what she has become at 30. And I wish I could restyle her; she was always so pretty and the extensions and heavy makeup and Housewives dresses look terrible. The bangs are awful. Look at old photos of her; she nearly jumps out of the pictures with life and such a pretty, pretty girl.

  43. Joanna says:

    I don’t think her fiance deserves the bad rep everyone gives him. her family got rid of sam lufti and the other dude who was taking advantage of her, but you guys think they are letting this guy take advantage of her? that makes no sense. maybe they TRUST him, that’s why they made him co-conservator. and maybe, just maybe, britney is capable of love and he loves her, as she is. why is that so hard for people to believe? as to her personality, i went on an anti-anxiety drug for awhile. yes, it mellowed me out, but it also dulled my personality highs and lows. i didn’t get as low but i didnt get as high as i did before. and i think it’s the same for britney. doesn’t mean she’s stupid, crazy, or incapable of living a normal life.

  44. Dommy Dearest says:

    They should take Britney out of entertainment and let her just spend time with her kids, though supervised. The people around her must be blind if they think she’s happy. It’s written all over her face with the eyes and fake smile.

    Free Britney!

  45. kelbravura says:

    Why is she so sad?

    I saw her say on that crap reality show of hers that every one of her dreams has come true.

    What the hell more does she want?

    She’s nice and whatnot but she really isn’t overly talented or too bright and here she is one of the most successful people in history.

    Great songs and she doesn’t even have to write them.

    What gives?

    What more do you want other than everything?

  46. Nubby says:

    I hate how everyone says she must be so f*ed up to have to have a conservatorship for so long…. Seriously people, think…. The only reason it was so long was so she didn’t have to testify in any of the Lufti trial. So they had to have a doctor say she needed it so she could get out of having to talk about the worst part of life. Now that’s over, she can be released soon enough.

    And I think they keep her working b/c they probably think that’s what always made her happy when he was growing up. And they are just sincerely trying to get her happy, not doing it to stuff their pockets more…. Shoot they eat cheese grits and enjoy the simpler things in life…. They are southern and I’d imagine that the sentence “bless her heart, we just want to see her happy” is said A LOT!

  48. Ravensdaughter says:

    I have Bipolar 2-”in recovery”now -and I wonder if the major issue that Britney and Trawick is that Trawick is Dad and Britney is the Rebellious Teen. I had the same dynamic with my ex before we divorced and THEN I was diagnosed-if it isn’t nipped in the bud, it is extremely destructive to any relationship.
    Of course her mom is devastated. They had the handoff all set and ready to go….

  49. lex says:

    It seems like she’s been replaced with a robot. Like she’s been cloned and under mind control. It’s just really wierd how drastic her change was. Yeah she has issues but, so does everyone else in the world and they manage to do fine. She shows zero emotion, she doesn’t say much about anything and she seems completely zoned out. It makes me sad because she was so bubbly and fun before, something shifted, and she seems broken now. Just makes me wonder about some things.
