The singer has split from fiancé Jason Trawick, with the couple just now releasing a statement 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.”
While her rep, Jeff Raymond, added: ”Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement. As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.”
TMZ also reported that the split was ”friendly breakup” and Britney and Jason will remain friends. As for why they split, we’re told they just “grew apart.”
The couple began dating in 2009 and got engaged in December of 2011.
The news of the split comes on the same day as Spears announced she “quit” the “X Factor” and in other developments, Trawick resigned as Britney’s co-conservator. Her father, Jamie Spears will remain her conservator.
Radar Online is also reporting that Trawick has moved out of the L.A home they shared.
Spears has been married twice before.
