"Things are fine – they still maintain a great working relationship and he's in her life as a great friend as he's always been," a close source tells PEOPLE.
Contrary to recent reports that the two ended their romance, the pair continue their relationship, according to the source. "Jason did not break up with Britney. That's totally false."
So while they are not exactly headed for the altar, the pair have a great mutual respect for one another.
"Things are casual … Britney really listens to what he has to say. He's been with her a long time, he gets along with the family," says the source. "He has her best interests at heart, and he cares about her."
