Oh, for the love of all good and wonderful things in this world, why is this happening?
According to Us magazine, the breakup has been brewing for a while, but the couple was patiently awaiting the disbandment of Trawick’s co-conservatorship and its restoration to Spears’ father. Only then did they finally shatter our hopes and dreams. Way to go!
“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him, and we will remain great friends,” Spears said in a statement.
The couple has been dating since 2009 and got engaged in December 2011. This would have been the third time walking down the aisle for Spears, who has previously been married to Jason Alexander and Kevin Federline. The pop icon has two children (from her marriage to Federline): 7-year-old Preston and 6-year-old Jayden.
We were really hoping for a happy ending here; they were so cute together! Either way, we wish them both the very best and can’t wait for Spears to be back onstage, since she’s not doing The X Factor anymore.
