Britney Spears and Jason Trawick split up!

Well, this certainly comes as no surprise as rumors have been swirling for weeks and now it’s official, Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have split up, ending their one-year engagement, but at least we’ll always have Criminal! The news comes hot on the heels of Britney announcing she won’t be returning as a judge on The X Factor (thank heavens, it wasn’t working for her at all for except all that money) next season because she wants to focus on music, and is back in the studio working on her eighth album! Apparently the split is totally amicable, supposedly they will remain friends, but we all know that never seems to work out. The rumor is that Britney wanted more kids, but Jason didn’t want anymore, he was perfectly happy with her two boys, from when she was with Kevin Federline. Remember those Chaotic days? Let’s hope girlfriend focuses on music, and doesn’t get herself wrapped up in a relationship right away, she should enjoy being single for a while!

It’s official: Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have called it quits. “Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement,” her rep Jeff Raymond tells PEOPLE exclusively. “As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.” Spears and Trawick confirmed their parting in a statement her rep released to PEOPLE. “Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement,” Spears says in the statement. “I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.” Adds Trawick: “As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever.” SOURCE
