Britney Spears’ ex-fiancé has been criticized for saying she needs a conservatorship
Britney Spears’ ex-fiancé Jason Trawick has said he believes the pop star’s guardianship was set up by her father Jamie Spears for her own good.
Trawick was a former Spears agent before they began a romantic relationship in 2010. They became engaged but later split in 2013. Spears was placed under supervision in 2008 until the #FreeBritney campaign successfully helped her legally end it in 2021.
Trawick, who was previously admitted as a co-conservator alongside Spears’ father in 2012, has now discussed the situation Kevco, the company podcast with actor and filmmaker Kevin Connolly.
“Listen, did she need a conservatorship when I was there? Yes. I’ll be the first to say this, but I was there from 2007 to 2012. Yeah, I think she needed some guidance,” Trawick said.
Host Connolly then questioned the difference between the need for guidance and the need for conservatorship. “You’re saying it was for her own good that you were there?” asked Connolly.
“Yes,” Trawick replied. “And I’m not just saying finances. I say other reasons for therapy and stuff like that. Or blocking them from seeing certain people that they didn’t find great in their lives. I think they needed a little structure back then.”
Connolly then asked Trawick about Jamie, Spears’ father, who served as Britney’s conservator for 13 years. Trawick was asked if he thinks Jamie meant well with his actions or not.
“100 percent. Unless they sit there and prove he stole money,” he said. “I don’t know if it should have ended sooner or later, but it shouldn’t have ended when I was there.” Connolly asked if she needed someone to “watch over her.” Trawick said she did.
Trawick also revealed how he and Spears first got together and “crossed the line” when they were in Las Vegas together.
Overall, Trawick and Connolly spend several minutes discussing his time with Spears at various points in the podcast. He also explained how he became Taylor Swift’s agent.
Online forum Exhale shared a clip from the podcast on its official Twitter account, prompting angry comments from Spears fans.
“Someone who grapples with the downsides of extreme public fame and fortune while juggling motherhood doesn’t deserve to have their basic civil liberties taken away from them,” said the Exhale account @breatheheavycom. “Virtually none of their family members or friends stepped in to help. It took Britney’s voice to be heard around the world in support of the #FreeBritney Movement, and having an attorney representing their best interests was something that was done. And yet there is justice.”
Snippets from the podcast were also shared on TikTok and Reddit, where Spears’ notoriously ardent fans also slammed Trawick for his stance on the conservatory.
@MoonChalice_ praised hostess Connolly for his defense of Spears and suggested she didn’t need a conservatory. “Funny how a podcaster who doesn’t know anything about cships interrupts him by saying that everyone benefits from outside support without cship,” they wrote.
Twitter user @JTS610 said, “Remember Jason agreed to be their conservator when they were engaged so I’m not surprised he agreed to conservatorship,” they wrote.
