britney spears, jason trawickPretty soon, Britney Spears will have to deal with an ex factor of her own. Word is, the pop star is about to get dumped by fiance Jason Trawick.

There were signs of trouble months ago when the couple decided to postpone their wedding. There were also rumors that he may have cheated. Now, if reports from Hollyscoop.com are to be believed, Jason is planning to break up with Brit and the way he's going about it is incredibly cruel.

Apparently Jason is fed up with the romance and wants out and Britney doesn't know about his plans. Problem is, everybody else does. “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,” a source told Hollyscoop.

Given her past, headline-grabbing breakdown, I understand his concern. He doesn't want to send her into a tailspin and wants to make sure she has support in place. Yea, it’s somewhat considerate I suppose, but telling EVERYONE in her inner circle is still an a-hole move. First of all, Britney doesn't exactly look like a woman in love. She always looks so bored and glum when the pair are photographed together, so she may be looking for an out too. Either way, yapping about it to everyone else is just mean and humiliating. Poor Brit.

The craziest part? He reportedly wants to remain her manager after he kicks her to the curb. Can't imagine having to keep your ex on the payroll after he dumps you. That's bizarre even by Hollywood standards. But it seems as though he may wait until after Christmas to break the news. They plan to go on vacation together over the holidays, according to another source. Maybe by then, someone from her inner circle will leak the news to her and she can send him packin' first.

Do you think he should have told her entire family about the breakup first?
