Britney Spears fans know that she was previously engaged to talent agent Jason Trawick in 2011. According to People, the pair broke it off in January 2013 after sources claimed they “wanted different things.” Those close to the duo maintained that Spears wanted Trawick “home with her twenty-four/seven” and that she wanted “to grow her family,” both points of contention. But as far as anyone was aware, Spears and Trawick never officially made it down the aisle before splitting up … or did they?
New evidence recently came to light via a podcast called “Toxic: The Britney Spears Story” that suggests Spears and Trawick did marry after all. Per Page Six, the show’s co-hosts Tess Barker and Babs Gray unearthed a $9,150 payment in an accounting report regarding the singer’s conservatorship battle that was itemized as a “consultation [on] dissolution of marriage.” The lump sum was dated October 2012, at which point we know Spears was still with Trawick. “My assumption would be that those were legal services that were rendered directly for [Spears’] benefit and nobody else’s,” estate specialist Austin Bertrand speculated in the podcast episode, adding, “‘Dissolution of marriage’ only means one thing, which is divorce.” Page Six reports that more details listed the payment as “conservatee’s legal fees,” which were made out to the “law offices of Alexandra Leichter,” a Beverly Hills-based legal firm. Hmmm.
