Spears filed for divorce from Federline in November 2006, initiating a two-year-long court battle over their children. She eventually bowed out of the fight, granting him full custody and the title of 2007's father of the year, as determined by Details magazine. (Apparently, next to a mother who spontaneously shaved her head bald and went through multiple breakdowns and psychiatric evaluations, even K-Fed looked good.)
Not since her teen romance with Justin Timberlake has Spears been romantically linked to someone as promising as Trawick. Even one of her harshest critics, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, is hoping their relationship stays in bloom as more than just business.
"The good outweighs the bad in their relationship," he said. "A big minus is that by what he does, his job is to use her. But, at least he's employed. And her family approves."
