, platinum recording artist and mother of two, doesn’t have a lot of time between picking out skimpy outfits, learning her choreography and globetrotting for her tour to seek out a new man. So, she just picks from among those closest to her…co-workers.

According to TMZ, “multiple sources” are now confirming that Spears is indeed dating one of her agents. She was recently pictured frolicking on a beach in a bikini with Jason Trawick of the world-renown William Morris Agency…but apparently, it’s not a service that’s available to every single client of the celebrated firm.

Adam Lambert on Rolling Stone

“Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it to the reporters,” he explained. Lambert went on to say he decided to wait for Rolling Stone, and that’s exactly what he did.
