Reports surfaced last November Britney's boyfriend Jawon Trawick popped the question during their romantic getaway to Mexico. And Britney shot him down.
"Jason somewhat foolishly popped the question as though it was a business transaction," says a close friend to Now Magazine.
"Britney's mom said she wasn't surprised she turned him down because she's a romantic at heart," but the big issue for Brit was getting him to bond with her boys.
"Since then, Jason's really proved himself as a potential dad, playing sports with them, buying toys and even tucking them in at night, which is why she's now ready to take their relationship to the next level."
"She was hoping he'd ask her again over Christmas, but he didn't."
Britney reportedly started making wedding plans, but Jason got cold feet. "He's worried that they argue too much," says the source. "They're constantly fighting over everything - even little stuff like where to eat or what movie to see. It's pretty volatile."
As for the reports of Jason physically abusing Britney? "I don't know where that came from but it's made up," says the friend. "They scream at each other, but it's never physical. Her dad would kill Jason if he laid a hand on her! That's not his style."
"He gets mad, yells, then storms off and refuses to speak to her for a few days. But he'd never, ever hit her."
