Oh, what? Is Britney Spears throwing a tantrum? In a whirlwind of decision-making, the American pop star has decided to call it quits with both fiancé Jason Trawick and as a celebrity judge on “The X Factor”. Gasp!
31-year-old Britney Spears and 41-year-old Jason Trawick began dating in May 2010 and got engaged in December 2011. The soon-to-be-official-love-union was highly publicized and there was not one person who didn’t know about it.
Some have said that it was a little too soon because Britney had just recovered from her other personal issues e.g. Kevin Federline divorce, losing custody of her children, meltdown, entering rehab, etc. Perhaps they spoke too soon?
Britney released an official statement following the announcements which read:
Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends. I had an incredible time doing “X Factor” 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. Watching them all do their thing up on stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.
Her marriage to Jason Trawick, if it followed through, would’ve been her third. If you recall, Britney Spears spontaneously married childhood friend Jason Alexander during a trip to Las Vegas in 2004. It lasted 55 hours before the singer annulled the union. Following which, she then married dancer Kevin Federline, with whom she had her two children. Britney and K-Fed then divorced in 2006, which led to a flurry of post-split lawsuits and issues.
Aww, Britney. You do what you need to do. We just hope it (read: the calling off of engagement) has got nothing to do with the whole drama with K-Fed’s brother, Chris Federline.
