It’s not shaping up to be a great weekend for Britney Spears, who’s in the process of breaking up with both X Factor and her former fiancé Jason Trawick. Was she dumped or did she do the dumping? It’s unclear, but Us Magazine is reporting that Spears returned her $90,000 ring and TMZ claims that Brit was looking to have more children, while Trawick was not. Meanwhile, a statement from Britney’s people (who don’t include Jason anymore, as he was one of her conservators) claim that the two will stay friends:
“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement,” the 31-year-old singer told Us in a statement. “I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
You know who might not remain such close friends? Britney Spears and Simon Cowell. Right before the new year, rumors circulated that Spears was about to get kicked off X Factor for not “working hard enough to earn her $15 million salary.” I personally have no idea what show those producers were watching, all the “work” they so desperately wanted to see was pretty clearly revealed upon Brit’s face at every turn. It might not be the worst thing for Spears fans, there were rumors of a residency in Vegas and Brit herself even mentioned something about a new album:
“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.”
Back in the studio, eh? That might not be as much fun for Brit (X Factor judging is a cushy paycheck!), but her fans will be pleased.
