Did Britney Spears get a special present in the form of an engagement ring from her boyfriend Jason Trawick this Christmas?
Dressed in jeans and a dark jacket, Britney had a huge smile on her face as she posed with Santa. Her hand was clearly placed on her knee, revealing a silver band around her engagement finger.
‘Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas tweethearts,’ Britney tweeted alongside the photograph.
The 29-year-old pop princess has had an on-again, off-again relationship with 38-year-old talent agent Jason Trawick for over 18 months.
Rumours have been swirling for some time about whether the two are planning to tie the knot in the near future.
Those rumors were fuelled even further when the couple were seen travelling through JFK International Airport in New York on December 23, after spending time with Trawick’s family before heading to Louisiana for Christmas with Britney’s family.
While Britney didn’t directly mention the ring on her finger, she did tweet on Boxing Day: ‘What’d everyone get? Anyone get a lump of coal?’
However, it’s not the first time Britney’s supposedly been engaged to Trawick and their relationship has been anything but stable.
The couple began dating in March 2009, and three months later Britney was seen sporting a large diamond ring on her engagement finger.
However, the Toxic singer refused to confirm or deny that they were engaged and in August 2009 they briefly split up.
After reconciling a few weeks later they broke up yet again in January 2010 after Britney discovered Trawick had been flirting with other women.
They reconciled once again and in May 2010 Trawick officially quit his position as Britney’s agent so the pair could ‘focus on their personal relationship.’
The couple had to weather accusations earlier this month that Trawick had been abusive towards Britney.
Star Magazine and celebrity website RadarOnline claimed that Spears’ ex-husband of 55 hours – Jason Alexander – told them Britney called him to tell him that Trawick had beaten her.
Spears responded to the allegations on her Twitter page, stating:’Star Magazine, Radar Online, Jason Alexander and the rest of you liars, Ya’ll can kiss my lily white southern Louisiana ass!’
Britney certainly has plenty to smile about these days and is definitely looking forward to 2011.
The Baby One More Time singer tweeted that she does indeed plan to launch her new album next year and is looking forward to the release.
‘I’m almost done with my new album and it will be coming out this March,’ she tweeted earlier this month. ‘I AM IN L-O-V-E WITH IT!’
