Rumors of Britney Spears and her fiance Jason Trawick splitting up have been circulating for some time now. We don't necessarily believe the stories, but we can only hear the "Britney splits with fiance" story too many times before we have to kinda sorta believe it, right?

We're trying really hard not too, though, because this is our girl and she's overcome so much and we just want her to be happy and.... le sigh.

A source close to the couple is saying that Trawick has had enough of Brit's antics and is just moments away from saying goodbye to his one-time employer and supposed-to-be-wife.

"Jason has told Britney’s entire family that he’s planning to leave her, so that Britney will have a support system when he breaks the bad news,” said the source to Hollyscoop. And not only did he tell her family first, but he's waiting until after 'X Factor' is over so she won't have to deal with her feelings on camera! But that just means the break up will come right before Christmas and New Year's!

Oddly, after the break up, Trawick still wants to remain BritBrit's manager, leaving the relationship in strictly business/platonic territory. As if our girl wouldn't kick his butt to the curb without pay after he breaks up with her. Ha!

So while this rumor continues to spread like wildfire, a second source went to Hollyscoop to basically say "hold on a minute, this ain't true."

“I haven’t heard anything about [the split], but I do know they are going on vacation together for the holidays," said the second source.

We're obviously more inclined to believe source numero dos, but let us know if you think Brit will enter the new year as a single gal, or if she and her fiance will live happily ever after!
