Are the publicists and managers of Britney Spears already in damage control mode and preparing for the singer's breakup with fiance Jason Trawick?
A recent slew of Britney split rumors certainly suggests as much.
According to the latest intel, from celebrity news site Radar Online, it's no longer a matter of if, but when they decide to pull the trigger on a split.
At the same time, she recently gushed about Jason to People.
“It amazes me that no matter what situation I'm in, Jason has the ability to always make me feel protected and loved,” Spears told the magazine.
Still, Radar claims the couple is on the rocks and their three-year relationship is on the verge of ending, barring a last-minute holiday reversal.
“It’s a make or break holiday for Britney and Jason,” a source said.
"Things have been getting worse and worse for months now, and they know they have to figure things out once and for all because they can’t keep going on like this.”
“If they do decide to call off the engagement, things wlll be tricky, legally and financially, so it isn’t just the state of their relationship they have to think about."
"If there wasn't those considerations involved they would have split a while ago."
As Jason Trawick is a co-conservator over Britney Spears' estate, the decision to stay together or not isn’t an easy one to make for either of them.
One big point of contention, allegedly?
“Jason wants to be a father, and while he’s happily taken on the role of dad to Jayden and Sean, he still wants Britney to have his kids,” an insider says.
“Britney says she's happy with just her two children at the moment and wants to concentrate on her career, which doesn’t sit well with Jason."
"Which is kind of bizarre ... just a few months ago she would have jumped at the idea. There seems to have been a marked turnaround in Britney's thought process."
