It’s been a week of major changes for pop star Britney Spears who announced on Friday that she and longtime boyfriend Jason Trawlick have called off their engagement. The news followed closely on the heels of her decision to leave the popular television show The X-Factor to focus on her music career and upcoming 8th studio album.
Just hours after confirming that she and Simon Cowell were parting ways she released a statement confirming the split with Holbrook native Trawick.
“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.” Trawick released a statement as well saying, “I love and cherish her and her boys, and we will be close forever.” According to Spear’s publicist the decision to split was a difficult one but was mutually agreed on by “two mature adults.” At the time of the announcement Trawick also went to court to officially resign as Spears’ co-conservator, a roll he has played since February of 2008.
