Britney Spears announced Friday that she has ended her year long engagement, capping a week of changes that included her leaving “The X Factor” and promised fans she would focus more on 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’s 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.
