Britney Spears single again

Britney Spears has split from her fiance Jason Trawick, a source confirms to Mail Online. The couple announced their engagement in December 2011, after confirming they were dating in May 2010. A source told Mail Online that the pair had been sleeping in separate bedrooms and their once strong relationship had fizzled into more of a friendship.
Britney said in a statement: 'Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I'll always adore him and we will remain great friends.' Jason added: 'As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever.' Britney's representative Jeff Raymond told Mail Online: 'Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement. As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.' Jason also acted as Britney's manager, and the pop star has now changed management, indicating the pair are also severing ties in their business relationship. Jason has reportedly resigned as Britney's co-conservator, but her father Jamie Spears will remain as conservator. Further reports claim Jason has already moved out of the home the couple shared together, according to Radar Online. While other sources claim the pair split over their differing opinions about wanting more children. claim Britney was keen to increase her brood and have children with Trawick, but he wasn't keen to do so. The website states that Jason is 'in another place' and doesn't want to start a family - although 'loves' her boys Sean Preston and Jayden James, her sons with ex Kevin Federline. TMZ also claims the pair argued as Trawick felt being with Spears 'took away his individuality', while he wanted to expand his business and take on more clients - something Spears allegedly wasn't happy with. The split announcement comes the same day as Britney confirmed she had quit her role as a judge on the X Factor. According to the official statement released today, the 31-year-old pop star put in her resignation for the talent competition series on Friday. '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,' Britney said, referring to her eighth album. 'Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can't wait to get back out there and do what I love most.' However, the Grammy winner's team has reportedly already begun 'serious talks' for lucrative sitcom and Las Vegas concert deals. According to TMZ, Spears and her people have been in serious negotiations with one of the Caesars group properties for 'a while.' The former Mouseketeer is likely being wooed to star in her own long-running show at the Colloseum at Caesar's Palace since that is where Cher and Celine Dion also held residencies. Dion scored $100 million a year to headline her show and her previous A New Day show grossed more than $400 million over five years. Cher also struck a lucrative deal with the casino where she performed for three years at $60 million a year. An insider noted that Britney could probably rake even more than either of the other pop legends in her deal. Spears' team is also reportedly looking into possible sitcom appearances. A Radar Online source said: 'Britney's manager, Larry Rudolph, is reading television scripts that the singer could accept. Britney's dad, Jamie feels that having his daughter on a sitcom would be a good fit for her. 'Britney needs to be kept busy, and a structured environment such as a television sitcom would be a natural fit for her. She actually has very natural comedic talents and is very funny, in an airhead sort of way.' Simon Cowell, 53, was reportedly disappointed with his $15 million contracted employee on the talent competition since he wanted 'crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.' According to Us Weekly, the network 'paid all that for her to say "amazing" and offer half-claps' for her four protegees. The December 20 second season finale was watched by only 9.6 million viewers, down 18 percent from the first season finale.
