Several sources are reporting that Britney Spears freaked out on her boyfriend/manager/babysitter Jason Trawick on Tuesday, and the argument ended with Britney physically abusing Jason. Are Apologies Enough After Domestic Abuse?
X17 posted pictures last week of Britney crying behind the wheel of her SUV, and followed up with an explanation that she was crying after photographers witnessed her violent altercation with Jason. According to their story, Britney went to Jason's place after working out at the gym, and the two drove off—she in her car with her bodyguard and Jason following behind. Jason eventually decided he wanted to join Brit in her car and have the bodyguard drive his, so he called Britney and asked her to pull over.

Their insider says that Brit went nuts after Jason turned down her marriage proposal (apparently, not the first one). Britney Spears To Marry A Third Time
In this version of the story, there is no mention of Britney's trip to the gym. Instead, it starts with Britney and Jason at a meeting with her lawyers. The Enquirer's source explains: "Britney thought getting married would be a good strategy to bring an end to her father’s conservatorship, but Jason wasn’t on board with it at all. Britney has begged Jason to marry her, and he’s repeatedly told her no. When the meeting with her lawyers didn’t go her way, it put Britney in a horrible mood."
