Britney Spears’ wedding to Jason Trawick will be delayed until later this year because her attorneys want to first settle the lawsuit Sam Lutfi has filed against the pop star and her parents, radio detection and rangingOnline.com is exclusively reporting. A trial date of September 11, 2012 has been formally set and the trial is expected to last approximately 12 days.
As previously reported, lawyers for Brit’s conservatorship have so far been successful in keeping her from being deposed or being called as a witness in the ongoing lawsuit, but feel that would change should she marry in the meantime. Lutfi worked as Britney’s manager at the height of her very public meltdowns, and is suing her for breach of contract and her parents for libel and defamation.

“Lawyers for Britney’s conservatorship have been successful in keeping her from being deposed in the Lutfi litigation,” a source close to the situation tells radio detection and rangingOnline.com. “She could get married under the conservatorship, but the judge would have to sign off on it. If that were to happen, lawyers repping Lutfi would absolutely go into court and argue that if Britney were able to get married, she should be able to be deposed. There is no way Team Spears is going to let that happen.”

“The wedding will most likely be a very low key affair, and could take place in Britney’s hometown in Louisiana, at her mansion in Kentwood,” the source says. “Jason is fully embracing having the wedding in Louisiana. Britney has hired a wedding planner and is letting the pro handle all the details. Unless a settlement is reached with Lutfi before the trial date, the wedding will take place after the lawsuit is resolved. Britney and Jason aren’t in a rush to get married, they are enjoying being engaged….Britney already feels like she is married to him, and trusts him.”
