Singer broke up with manager after he told her she didn’t want to have kids Unlucky in love Britney Spears has broken up with fiance Jason Trawick – on the same day she quit the US X Factor. Pop star Britney confirmed yesterday she and Jason, who was also her manager, had called it a day after almost three years, the Sunday People has revealed.
Sources close to the pair say they separated after he told her he didn’t want to have kids.
US singer Britney, 31, said in a statement: “Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
Insiders say they want to stay close for the sake of her sons, Sean, seven, and Jayden, six.
Jason said: “As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close for ever.”
The pair, who began dating in 2010 after meeting through friends, announced their engagement a year ago.
Jason, 41, is understood to have stepped down last week as Britney’s co-conservator – helping to oversee aspects of her financial and personal life.
A source said: “Britney wanted to extend their family and have more kids but Jason didn’t. That’s where the heart of the problems are thought to have come from. He adores the boys and they will remain a close family but Britney and Jason didn’t want to be together any more.
“Jason has moved out of Britney’s house and is looking to the future.”
Britney is believed to have returned the £60,000 3.5-carat diamond engagement ring.
It has been a time of major changes for Britney.
On Friday she also announced she was quitting the US X Factor after one series to spend more time making music.
Simon Cowell had paid Britney £10million to join him on the judging panel.
But sources at Fox, which airs the series, claim she did not impress bosses.
Despite being panned by critics, Britney, who mentored four teenagers on the talent show, guided Carly Rose Sonenclar, 13, to second place.
Britney said in a statement: “I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and am proud of my teens but it’s time for me to get back in the studio.
“Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much. I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”
Her split from Jason is yet another chapter in her turbulent love life. She dated Justin Timberlake for four years before they parted in 2002.
In 2004 she married childhood friend Jason Alexander in Las Vegas while they celebrated New Year. The marriage was annulled 55 hours later.
Months later Britney became engaged to dancer Kevin Federline, 34, after they met while she was touring.
The pair, who got hitched in Kevin’s back garden, divorced in 2007 after Britney had given birth to their two boys
