Breaking News: Britney Spears & Jason Trawick Call Off Engagement

Jason Trawick & Britney Spears

After three years of dating, the two have mutually decided to split.

Love or career? Apparently it’s neither for Britney Spears.

Unfortunately, the rumors are true. Not only is she not returning to X Factor, which she announced earlier this week, she also will not be walking down the aisle anytime soon. The 31-year-old pop princess has called off her engagement to Jason Trawick.

“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement,” Spears said in a statement. “I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
He chimed in as well: “As this chapter ends for us, a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever.”

Spears has two sons, 7-year-old Preston and 6-year-old Jayden, with ex-husband Kevin Federline, whom she divorced in 2006. She began dating Trawick in 2009 and got engaged in 2011.

What’s next for Spears? Well, one reason she has decided to leave the Fox TV show is so that she can go back to doing what we love the most – singing!
“Watching [the contestants] all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much,” she said. “I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”

Well, now you have the time. We’re bummed that Spears couldn’t make this one work, but have faith she’ll get back on her feet soon.
