Britney Spears Confirms Jason Trawick, X-Factor Splits

Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have called off their engagement and are going their separate ways. Spears is always going separated ways from the X-Factor as she may be preparing to pursue a headlining gig in Vegas.

Britney and fiancé Jason Trawick have been together for three years, but sources indicate that the Spears Trawick split was a long time coming.

Both Spears and Trawick agreed it was time to split up, but they wanted to wait the make the official announcement after Jason’s conservatorship was disbanded.

“Jason and I have decided to call off out engagement,” the former X-Factor judge announced. “I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”

According to Spears publicists, it was a tough decision made by “two mature adults.”

Even Trawick only had kind things to say in the midst of calling it all off.

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

Of course, cherishing somebody doesn’t keep you from doing rude things when you are upset.

Apparently there was never trouble in paradise simply because there wasn’t much of a paradise at all between the two.

According to one source close to the situation, “The romance is gone.”

That same source went on to reveal that Jason “puts her on speakerphone so friends can hear her nagging.”

Yet another source aware of the troubled relationship said the split isn’t shocking, but a marriage would have been.

“I’d be shocked if they got married,” the source said.

Now that the conservatorship has finally ended, however, the couple can simply go their separate ways instead of driving each other crazy.

Before finally resigning, Jason was a part of the court ordered conservatorship that oversees many of Britney’s finances although he did not have any authority over her money.

At this point, it doesn’t seem like Spears will need any help handling money despite her confirmed split with the X-Factor.

The pop star admitted that although she had a great time on the show, she was ready to get back to doing what she loved after watching her mentees taking the stage.

“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,” the 31-year-old songstress explained.

Her explanation for walking away was similar to that of Christina Aguilera who decided to take a break from The Voice to work on her music career as well.

“Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much,” Spears exclaimed. “I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”

There may be one striking different between Christina’s explanation and Britney’s however – Aguilera was actually being welcomed back with open arms.

Some sources are still suggesting that Britney simply quit before she got fired. According to these sources, Spears wasn’t doing enough to boost ratings and producers from the show were ready to party ways. After giving her a notice in advance, rumor has it she decided to simply quit instead.

If that’s the case we can only imagine that the decision wasn’t as tough as Brit would like to make it seem.

Either way, not having the fat check from the X-Factor isn’t really going to hurt the pop diva’s pockets because her headlining gig in Vegas has the potential to more than double what she made on the singing talent show.

While already having $27.5 million in assets, which includes a whopping $15 million in cold hard cash, a Vegas gig may offer the “Till the World Ends” crooner $100 million a year.

According to TMZ, Trawick’s ex is in “serious talks” to make a move to Vegas to headline a “Celine” type of show.

Spears may also be seeking residency in Sin City and may be doing “big, nightly shows” for one of the major hotels.

The negotiations are supposedly taking place between Brit’s camp and one of the CAESARS group properties who has been “wooing her for a while.”

Celine Dion grabbed almost $100 million a year for her gig and insiders are predicting that the “Toxic” singer will top that.
