Following the headline-grabbing news of Britney Spears and Jason Trawick’s break-up, the Internet rumor mill has exploded with reports—mostly incorrect—on what went wrong for the pair.
Hollyscoop has an ear to the ground in the world of the “Criminal” singer and can officially denounce some of those rumors that have been spiraling in the gossip whirlwind.
For starters, the couple’s split had nothing to do with Britney’s father, Jamie Spears.
One unreliable gossip site quotes a source saying:
“Jason wanted out, and in the fragile state that Britney is in, it’s not like he could have a rational conversation with her about it, so it was really between him and Jamie … Britney was left out of everything and really didn’t even know what was going on.”
A source very close to Spears tells HS that Jamie did “NOT orchestrate the [break-up] from Jason. He had to handle the co-conservator resignation with him.”
Britney and Jason also DID NOT go to relationship counseling before their separation. Or, as one source inaccurately put it:
“Britney brought Jason into some of her therapy sessions. Jason didn’t mind at all, he thought it was great … They had separate residences at the W hotel, and they stopped having sex.”
We previously broke the story that Britney and her fiancé were planning on separating in December, but the actual split didn't happen until last week.
“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement," Britney said in a statement at the time. "I'll always adore him and we will remain great friends."
