Did Britney Spears, Fiance Split Up?

LOS ANGELES (AP) —  Britney Spears announced Friday that she has ended her yearlong engagement, capping a week of changes that included her leaving “The X Factor” and promising fans she was returning her focus to music.

Within hours of confirming her departure from the Fox reality series, Spears also announced that her relationship with talent agent Jason Trawick had ended.

“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement,” Spears said in the statement. “I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”

Spears’ publicist Jeff Raymond said the breakup was a difficult decision made by “two mature adults.”

“I love and cherish her and her boys, and we will be close forever,” Trawick said in a joint statement that was first reported by People magazine.

Trawick also resigned his role Friday as a Spears’ co-conservator, with Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz approving his departure from the case.

Spears and Trawick got engaged in December 2011 and he was added as her co-conservator in April.

Spears, 31, has been under a court-supervised conservatorship since February 2008, with her father and another co-conservator, Andrew Wallet, having control over numerous aspects of her personal life. The case was opened after several incidents of erratic behavior by the pop singer and a pair of hospitalizations, but Spears has recovered and she appeared weekly on “X Factor.”

She said in a statement that judging young talent made her miss performing. “I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most,” she said in a statement.

Her father Jamie Spears met with Goetz for about an hour on Friday but left before a hearing where Trawick’s resignation was announced.

Trawick has served as Spears’ agent and the pair started dating in 2009.

Trawick did not have authority over Spears’ finances, which have rebounded since her public meltdown. Goetz recently reviewed and approved of an accounting that showed Spears ended 2010 with more than $27.5 million in assets, including nearly $15 million in cash.

Attorneys handling the case are expected to file updated financial statements in the coming months.
