The New Year isn’t getting off to a good start in the romance department for celebrity couples. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have called it quits, again, along with Taylor Swift and Harry Styles. And now, former X Factor judge, Britney Spears and fiance Jason Trawick follow suit and announce their split. What’s going on? Take the jump for more details.
According to People, it’s not just a bunch of rumors and speculation anymore; it’s official! Spears, 31, and Trawick, 41, have ended their three-year relationship.
Spears’ representative, Jeff Raymond confirmed the split. “Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement.” He added, “As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.”
Spears has been under court-supervised conservatorship since February 2008. She and Trawick were engaged in 2011 and at that time, he was appointed as co-conservator alongside her father. According to Fox, on Friday, January 11, Trawick submitted his resignation from her conservatorship and it was accepted by Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz.
A source close to Trawick said things have been tense between them for some time. “Jason definitely feels resentful toward Britney because he gave up his career and everything he spent years working for in order to be everything to Britney,” the source told omg!. “He feels like his whole world is Britney now – and he isn’t psyched about it.”
Another source said, “The romance is gone, [he] puts her on speakerphone so friends can hear her nagging…I’d be shocked if they got married.”
When Spears and Trawick announced their split, Spears said, “Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
Trawick added, “As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever.”
