Photos: It’s official! Britney Spears and agent Jason Trawick are engaged
By Don Chareunsy
Oops! ... She did it again! Pop superstar Britney Spears had double reason to celebrate in Las Vegas on Friday night: Her longtime boyfriend, agent Jason Trawick, celebrated the Big 4-0 and, confirming Mr. Vegas DeLuxe Robin Leach’s story on Friday morning, Spears and Trawick are now engaged.
Let’s hope that the third time (wedding) is the charm for Spears after marriages to high school sweetheart Jason Alexander (not the “Seinfeld” actor) and Kevin Federline, with whom she has two boys, Sean Preston, 6, and Jayden James, 5.
Vegas DeLuxe will be back Sunday with a full report of Friday night’s festivities. Meantime, thanks to Denise Truscello for this photograph of the happy couple at Planet Hollywood with his birthday cake, and here are Mr. Leach’s tweets (@Robin_Leach) from Friday night’s Britney Watch:
