During negotiations between Simon Cowell and Britney Spears‘ camp for her to become a judge on The X Factor, the mega mogul needed assurances that Britney would abide to terms of the contract because she is still under a conservatorship, and he suggested that her fiancé, Jason Trawick, become one of her conservators, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As we first reported the judge handling Spears’ conservatorship met with the Toxic singer to discuss her accepting a job with The X Factor almost two weeks ago. Brit’s conservators needed to get approval from the court for her to join the Fox talent show.
“Simon is very excited about Britney joining the show. However, it’s important to remember that she is still under a conservatorship and the last thing her father wants to do is be on the set for hours at a time. Jamie has conservatorship of Britney’s finances and personal life,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “Jamie just isn’t comfortable in that world but her fiancé, Jason Trawick is, because he is a respected Hollywood agent.
“Simon and Britney’s camp agreed it would be a good idea to have Jason petition the court to become a co-conservator of Britney’s personal life but he isn’t seeking to get involved in her finances. Jason is also very excited for Britney to join the show. There were also insurance complications because Britney is under a conservatorship, but those issues have been worked out because it’s expected that the judge will grant Jason’s petition.”
Meanwhile, as Radar previously reported, Britney won’t be getting married to Jason until later this year. “Britney has been living with Jason and her two sons in a rental house for almost a year-and-a-half. Britney isn’t in a rush to get married and will be very busy this fall with X Factor which will have its second season premiere in September on Fox,” the insider says.
