Britney marries her “handler”
Britney Spears said “I do” in 2004 to childhood friend Jason Alexander, and the two were married for 55 glorious hours.
Less than three days after the pair exchanged vows at The Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, their marriage was annulled.
If you thought that was the last you’d ever hear from Britney’s first husband, guess again. Perhaps a torch still burns for Britney, because Alexander is not happy about her engagement to Jason Trawick, reports Us Weekly.
The one-time Mr. Britney Spears is currently training for the World of MMA fighting competition and must have been hit in the head one too many times, because he thinks the engagement is fake.
“If you look at all the pictures between [Spears and Trawick] there is no connection,” he explained to the magazine. “They look like they are going through the motions. It seems like an answer to the court thing.”
Alexander was referencing the conservatorship held by Britney’s father Jamie Spears, which will likely end when the star is married.
“Sort of a nice way to sew it all up, she marries her handler,” he quipped. “I think it’s fake and I think people are afraid to say it.”
Alexander likely blames Britney’s ‘controlling’ team for the annulment of their marriage, but it’s been nearly eight years since that night in Vegas, and even ex-husband Kevin Federline, the father of Britney’s children, is happy for her.
“I’m really happy for her — I think he’s a great guy,” Federline told Australia’s “TV Week,” adding, “She’s happy; she’s doing really well. I want to say she’s in a good place.”
Though Federline admits he doesn’t talk to Spears much these days, he wishes her the best.
“It’s a good step in the right direction,” Federline said of her engagement. “I’m totally happy for her.”
But as news of the 30-year-old “Criminal” singer’s engagement begins to heat up, many fans are wondering: just who is Jason Trawick?
Spears’ one-time agent has been dating her since May 2010 (though the couple were spotted together as early as 2007), but the pair have been remarkably low-profile as a couple, especially considering Spears’ previous relationships
Trawick is Hollywood’s Go-To Man
Jason Trawick met Spears when he was an agent at William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, just before he started to represent her. In the past, he’s worked with such big names as Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum, Paris Hilton and Hilary Duff.
Though he stopped being Britney Spear’s agent back in May 2011, it was largely so he could go and oversee the entire arts and entertainment portion of Famos LLC. Pretty impressive for a guy who’s stayed under the romantic radar!
WME (formerly known as William Morris Endeavor) is the largest talent agency in the world, with offices in Beverly Hills, New York City,Nashville, London, and Miami. WME represents elite artists from all facets of the entertainment industry, including motion pictures, television, music, theatre, publishing, and physical production.

Famos LLC has tapped former William Morris Endeavor agent, Jason Trawick to oversee the company’s arts and entertainment brand, f*star, a partnership with musician and media impresario, Dave Stewart and legendary Rolling Stones frontman, Mick Jagger.
F*star is a white-label of the famos* media syndication platform, specifically tailored to address the unique needs of individuals and entities with broad digital reach and influence. In his new capacity, Mr. Trawick will continue to work closely with his former employer as the new online service, currently under wraps at http://www.famos.com, readies for a planned summer debut.
Mr. Trawick brings with him 12 years of experience at the William Morris (now William Morris Endeavor) Agency, representing a roster of clients such as Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Hilary Duff, Pauley D (Jersey Shore), Paris Hilton, Heidi Klum and Dwight Yoakam. Trawick is a graduate of Michigan State University and earned his MBA from Texas A&M University.
Says Famos LLC founder and CEO, Rent Sidon, “We’re delighted to have Jason on board with us at famos*. He clearly grasps the distinction between digital fame and real-world celebrity, and he’s got the experience, credibility and instincts to effectively bridge the two.”
