1. Britney Spears has broken up with her fiance, Jason Trawick. The 31-year-old mother of two was engaged to 41-year-old Trawick for just over a year.
Britney’s rep, Jeff Raymond, released a statement saying: “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.”
Britney also confirmed the breakup, announcing in the statement: “Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
Jason originally proposed to Britney during an intimate dinner on his 40th birthday in December 2011. According to E!Online, Britney has since returned the $90,000 engagement ring he gave her. The site is also reporting:
The couple never took steps to plan a wedding, which seemed strange to those close to her, considering Britney had been “pushing to move the relationship forward” and “really wanted to get engaged and have a wedding.”
It would have been the third marriage for Britney. She married Jason Alexander in Las Vegas in 2004 (and divorced him 55 hours later) and in 2007 she married the father of her two sons, Kevin Federline.
