Britney Spears didn’t just call quits with the X-Factor this week, but also with fiance of two years, Jason Trawick.
This breakup follows a swirl of rumors that the couple’s relationship was rocky due to his co-conservator role in her life. A source close to Spears revealed the following just days before the breakup:
“The relationship has been more than slightly rocky in the past few months and Brit attributes that to having her man essentially being one of her babysitters. It has killed the romance in the relationship, and she wants to get it back. Jason is co-conservator of Spears as a person, meaning he controls who she sees, where she goes, etc.”
Since then the following statements have been officially released regarding the end of their engagement:
Rep: “Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement. Two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.”
Britney: “Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
Jason says: “As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever.”
Welcome to single-dom Brit-Brit! It isn’t (that) bad!
