Britney Spears' ex-fiance Jason Trawick responds to claims they were secretly MARRIED before 2012 break-up
BRITNEY Spears' ex-fiance Jason Trawick has shot down claims he was secretly married to the pop star.
Rumors the pop superstar – who was engaged to Jason in 2011 – tied the knot with her agent started after an unearthed accounting paperwork filed to a court in California in October 2012 contained a $9,150 fee for “dissolution of marriage”.
However, Jason has now denied the claims in a text received by journalist Billy Bush at Extra.
After being asked about the rumours, Jason replied: "I believe you would have known if I was married.
"But you would have made a perfect usher."
Britney was engaged to Jason in 2011 before splitting in 2012. News of the split came in 2013 — three months after the paperwork was filed.
The previous year, Britney accidentally referred to Jason, 49, as her “husband” during a radio interview.
The document was revealed by the podcast Toxic: The Britney Spears Story — created by campaigners who launched the Free Britney movement in 2019.
The . . . Baby One More Time singer has been under a conservatorship, set up in 2008, which put her father Jamie in charge of her life and finances following her breakdown.
The mum of two has been fighting to get out of the arrangement for years.
Jason became Britney’s co-conservator with Jamie after announcing their engagement.
Austin Bertrand, an expert on the financial side of conservatorships, said on Toxic: “‘Consultation of dissolution of marriage’ and this is under conservatee’s legal fees.
“My assumption would be that those were legal services that were rendered directly for her benefit and nobody else’s. Dissolution of marriage only means one thing — divorce.”
When the hosts suggest this means Britney was secretly married and divorced from Jason, Mr Bertrand adds: “Yeah that is probably what is going on and it looks like they (lawyers) missed a redaction.”
Britney previously had a 55-hour marriage to her childhood friend Jason Alexander, 39, in 2004.
She then had two children during a two-year marriage to dancer Kevin Federline, 43, which ended in divorce in 2007.
In her bombshell court testimony in June, Britney said she had been prevented from marrying her current boyfriend, actor Sam Asghari, 27, who she has been dating for four years.
She said: “I wanna be able to get married and have a baby.
“I was told right now in the conservatorship I am not able to get married or have a baby.”
