Mere moments after the world learned the sad news that Britney Spears and Jason Trawick called off their engagement and ended their relationship, our dear Britney issued a personal statement regarding the split (along with a statement from her rep and from Jason himself). Classy to a fault, Britney makes it clear that she and Jason will remain friends despite their dunzoness. BUT, now that Britney and Jason are no longer romantically involved, he is also no longer involved with her conservatorship … the Britwick split appears to be total. Click below to read Britney‘s official statement about her break-up with Jason.
“Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement,” her rep Jeff Raymond tells PEOPLE exclusively. “As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.” Spears and Trawick confirmed their parting in a statement her rep released:
“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement,” Spears says in the statement. “I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.” Adds Trawick: “As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever.”
Aww … a joint statement does make it sound like the break-up was mutual. While one or the other had to make the decision to move forward with the split, I hope Britney isn’t too hurt by this break-up. And as for her conservatorship …
With their breakup comes the end of another kind of arrangement. Jason Trawick has resigned as Britney Spears’s conservator of her person, which once gave him the authority to make decisions about her general well-being, such as food, clothing, travel and medical care. “The court accepts the resignation [of Trawick],” L.A. Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz stated in court Friday. Goetz added that the singer’s father, Jamie Spears, “will remain as the sole conservator of her person.”
And there you have it. Just about a year after the couple got engaged, Britwick are now completely dunzo … sounds sadly familiar to me :( In any event, it’s a new year and it is my sincerest hope that both Britney and Jason can move forward happily and as healthily as possible (tho, my sincere hopes are more for Britney than for Jason … sorry dude).
