Britney Spears dating 'best thing that's happened to her' - agent Jason Trawick

Britney Spears has a new man in her life and he's already been given the thumbs-up by her family. A source has confirmed the touring pop princess has begun a relationship with her agent Jason Trawick. "They are totally and definitely dating," the source told American publication People. "Her dad loves him. He's the best thing that happened to her."

"They're very sweet together… He makes Britney really happy, and he's great with the boys."

Romance between the 27-year-old singer and Jason - a close friend of Britney's older brother Bryan - seemed to bloom during a May holiday in the Bahamas with her boys, Sean Preston, three, and two-year-old Jayden James.

Whether it's Jason's influence or just another sign she's determined to shed her former party girl persona, Britney has kept a noticeably low profile while in London with her Circus world tour. So much so that even an invite to Beyonce Knowles' opening show in the capital on Monday didn't manage to tempt the Louisiana star away from a quiet night in at her hotel with her boys.

And when she does venture out she may well not be spotted her as her security team has apparently hired a lookalike to divert attention from her.
