Britney Spears

Here's Your

Ring Back

0111_britney_spears_engagement_ring_Article_1
The newly-unencumbered Jason Trawick is once again the proud owner of a $90,000 engagement ring ... because we've learned Britney Spears has already given it back.

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Jason did not ask Brit to return the 3.5-carat, Neil Lane ring ... she returned it on her own.

By the way ... there are reports that Britney bought the ring herself. Not true.

FUN FACT:  In California, the ring -- which in legalese is a "gift in contemplation of marriage" -- must be returned if the wedding is cancelled, UNLESS the dude is the one who called the whole thing off.  If it's a mutual break-up, or if the woman is the one who pulls the plug, the ring goes back to the guy.

The question -- If Jason gets engaged again, is it bad luck to give that ring to his fiancée?

Bad luck ring?

Bad luck?! Who knows. Bad taste? YES! It is never okay to give a girl a ring that you once gave to another girl. It is N-E-V-E-R okay.

The aforementioned has never happened to me, but fellas, trust me. It is a HUGE no-no.

Man isn't even allowed to call off his own wedding without being punished.
Wonder why so many young men are so against marriage these days? :D

Even tho the media is trying to make a dramatic story from this break up, they cannot because they seem to be fairly normal people. Maybe too normal for showbusiness nowadays

I´m still heartbroken over all of this. Hope Britney has the right people around her right now to help her get through this. She deserves to be happy and I´m sure she has made the right decision. Love her

this is totally untrue! I cant believe TMZ posted this... their lawyers should know better.
In California, the ring goes back to whomever purchased it, regardless of who ended the relationship. get it right TMZ

wow ew    

I dont get why so many celebs now claim that the reason they break up is cause one wanted kids and the other didn't. Isn't that something you discuss early on???

It is absolutely bad luck! During my divorce proceedings, I took my engagement ring to our jeweler. In our conversation about the appraisal and my plans to dispose of it, he slipped and revealed that when the X brought it to him to be re-sized (for me), he had originally sold it to him 12 years before - for the previous wife. Bad karma and a cheap bastard attached to that ring - at least twice!

Who is the real Britney? is she still the childlike young girl America fell in love with over 10 years ago? Is she a woman who now belongs in a mental institution? Is she a woman who should be left alone and be able to spend her money as she sees fit without her fathers' input? Is she still the unstable basket case who shaved her head and had her children taken away? Or is she all of these people?. Who are you Britney?

Of course Jason's new girl won't want the ring. The ring probably has Cheetos and frappicinnos embedded in it...not to mention psychotic medicine residue. Sell the ring and be thankful its over.
