Britney Spears
and Jason Trawick have broken up ... TMZ has learned.

The couple got engaged back in 2011. Trawick started out as Britney's agent, the duo started dating and he eventually became her co-conservator along with her dad, Jamie Spears.

Multiple sources connected to the couple tell TMZ ... Jason didn't want to make the announcement until he was taken off the conservatorship.  Interestingly, lawyers for the conservatorship are in court right now, along with Britney's dad, Jamie Spears, so it's possible Jason will be removed today.

Sources say it was a "friendly breakup" and Britney and Jason will remain friends.  As for why they split, we're told they just "grew apart."

The timing's pretty interesting considering Brit recently changed agencies, heading to CAA ... an indication Trawick was no longer involved in managing her career.

Britney told People.com ...  "Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I'll always adore him and we will remain great friends."

Trawick also issued a statement saying, "As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever."

At least he seems like a decent guy, to take his name off the conservatorship. Some could have exploited that situation to the fullest.

I still see a half-full cookie jar and even though time has passed I'm not sticking my hands in and pulling out some crazy flavor cookie. Nope, not getting sucked in.

OHHH... That's drama. I just read that fashion designer Marc Jacobs tortures a young girl called Angel Barta and steals her designs, you can read the details with photos on: http://styleangelique.blogspot.hu/2012/12/marc-jacobs-godfather-in-sponge-bob.html

Sweet, that crazy bitch is single. I wonder if she'd ever have anything to do with a monkey like me.

Good, he's a bum and was playing a father-figure. Interesting he never seemed to work, just leech off Britney. Now she can find a real man, closer to her age, with his own money so he's not sponging off her.

I hope this remains a friendly break up. A least they made a decision to not go through a marriage that could have turned into a complete sh*t show.

He seems like a good enough guy. I wonder how long before his tell all book comes out.

This relationship never made sense, it was a relationship built on convenience. They never looked in love. you could tell with Justin it was puppy love, you could tell with f-fed she was in love. I just didn't see the same hot sparks with Jason. And trust me I'm married to someone 27 years older than me she wasn't in love. He was a stable role in her life at the time and I think he did what he needed to to protect his paycheck at the time

This relationship was an arrangement from start to finish. The poor guy - or not so poor with his payoff to go quietly - can now get on with his life with a "normal" woman! Good luck to both of them really!

She needs to focus on herself and her kids, the breakup itself is pretty 'meh' for me.

This is actually good news, there was something about him I never liked, maybe he seemed to dominate her. It probably feels great to have unloaded this guy. Britney can veg w/ her boys.
