Last week rumors were swirling that Britney Spears’ jawn Jason Trawick was physically abusing her, and now she’s all calling paps for bunned up vacation photo ops. Poor Brit Brit…
If this is a woman whose relationship has taken a nasty turn, then Britney Spears sure knows how to put on a brave face. The pop star was snapped looking content as she enjoyed a romantic break with Jason Trawick for her birthday. And the couple looked closer than ever as they posed for pictures at a private villa in Mexico. Britney was celebrating her 29th birthday on December 2 and she and Trawick, 39, jetted off for a long weekend at a private $5,000 a night villa in the Conchas Chinas resort.
And the couple, who have been dating for a year, appeared to have shrugged off the allegations that Trawick had physically abused her, made by Star Magazine in a report based on an interview with Britney’s childhood friend, Jason Alexander, who she married briefly for 55 hours back in 2004. The report alleged that Britney had accused Trawick, who was also her former manager, of hitting her, telling Alexander ‘he beat on me’ in recorded evidence of telephone conversations between the two. Britney’s reps furiously denied the allegations and said that Trawick has ‘never laid a hand on Britney’. She even took to her Twitter account to hit out at the reports and wrote: ‘Star Magazine, Radar Online, Jason Alexander and the rest of you liars, Ya’ll can kiss my lily white southern Louisiana ass!’
But despite their united front, it looked as though the incident was still playing on Britney’s mind.Even though she smiled for the posed shots and looked happy to be by her boyfriend’s side, she looked like her thoughts were elsewhere. And her body language looked stiff and distant in the picture of them lounging on poolside chairs. But a source close to the couple said they shrugged off the allegations and added: ‘They did not allow it to get them down.’
And Britney declared that her birthday break – during which Trawick, 39, surprised the singer with a red-velvet cake shipped from Los Angeles – was ‘amazing’. She said: ‘My birthday weekend away with Jason was amazing. Best birthday of my life!’
