After a year of being engaged, pop sensation Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have split. The pair had been sleeping in separate rooms and their once strong relationship has fizzled into more of a friendship.
The couple announced their engagement in December 2011, after confirming they were dating in May 2010.
The X Factor judge will no longer have Jason as a conservator and lawyers are currently in court having him removed.
“Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement,” her rep Jeff Raymond told People magazine. “As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.”
“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement,” Britney said. “I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
Jason 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.”
The split comes right after Britney changed agencies, indicating that Jason was no longer managing her career, and after her exit from The X Factor.
“I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it’s time for me to get back in the studio,” Britney said, referring to her eighth album. “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.”
