Way back in the dark ages of early 2008, after a vacation in Costa Rica, rumors flew that Britney Spears was dating her agent Jason Trawick, who helped get her back with her parents and on the right career track post-meltdowns.
That buzz died pretty quick, but now it’s starting all over again, with E! News reporting that Jason Trawick and Britney Spears have been going on secret dates!
Trawick, a William Morris Agency rep who has worked with Spears for years, recently joined Spears for the first four shows of her Circus tour, but E! says the two recently have been growing much closer away from the workplace.
A Britney Spears insider insists that the rejuvenated pop star and the talent agent strictly have a "close professional relationship" and that's it, calling it "ridiculous" to suggest the pair is anything close to "romantic." But is it?
Another well-placed source reported to E! that Jason Trawick's talent agency bosses are OK with his tight bond with Britney and, in fact, "They joke about it."
Are Britney Spears and Jason Trawick dating? Were they before? Ever?
The 37-year-old Trawick is credited with helping Spears reunite with her parents, her manager Larry Rudolph, and landing her comeback role on How I Met Your Mother.
He declined to comment on this story and referred a request to Spears' rep.
But Jason, who also represents Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift and Paris Hilton, was spotted with Spears and her sons on March 1 in Louisiana, riding in a golf cart. Trawick was holding Sean Preston as Britney drove, holding Jayden James.
Perhaps most importantly, the "If U Seek Amy" singer's father-conservator approves of Trawick's involvement in Britney's life, whatever that might be.
"Jason is one of the few people who Jamie Spears actually trusts," says a Spears family confidante, and that could be his ticket inside her inner circle.
