Pop queen and one-time X Factor judge Britney Spears has split from her fiance, Jason Trawick, TMZ reports. Jason and Britney had been engaged since December 2011, and rumors of a breakup have been circling the two ever since they postponed their wedding date back in late 2012.
Britney was previously married to Jason Alexander and Kevin Federline, and her wedding to Jason Trawick would have marked her third nuptials. Jason and Britney began dating in 2009 while Jason was working as Britney’s agent. He is, as of the date of TMZ’s report, still a co-conservator over her estate (along with Britney’s father, Jamie Spears).
The day before TMZ’s report, Britney switched agencies, heading to CAA from WME, igniting a flurry of rumors as to where her career — and personal life — might be headed. A source tells TMZ Jason wanted to delay an official announcement about the split until after he had been removed as co-conservator. As of Friday (January 11) afternoon, attorneys for both parties have reportedly begun arguing in support of such a motion in Los Angeles Superior Court.
