Britney and Jason

They Broke Up

Over Kids

Britney Spears
and Jason Trawick broke up primarily because she wanted to have more kids and he didn't ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected to the couple tell us ... Britney, who is 31, loves her boys and desperately wants more kids.  Jason, who is 41, is "in another place" and does not want to start a family -- although he loves Sean Preston and Jayden James.  We're told the former couple argued frequently about family and this ultimately proved their undoing.

Our sources say ... there's something else -- dealing with the Britney empire wore at Jason and "took away his individuality."  Jason wanted to maintain his identity and one of the ways was to expand his business by taking on more clients (he's an agent) and making more money -- this didn't sit well with Britney.

As for settling up -- we're told it's simple.  There are no outstanding financial issues.  Sources say the house Britney just bought -- $8.5 mil in Thousand Oaks, CA -- was purchased solely with her money and Jason has no claim to it.

Short story -- it's a clean break.

I'm calling BS on this. She wanted to control him. Why on Earth would she object to him expanding his business? I think she didn't want him in a good position to leave like K-Fed. The whole mental illness thing was just a cover for her being lazy, a slob, and flying into a blind rage when a guy rejects her. Heck, he probably figured she wasn't stable enough to have more children.

I don't believe it was over kids, I think he was smothering her. No woman wants' to sleep w/ a father figure.

I.e., Britney was changing management so she had to end her contractual relationship with Tratwick. Is it really a coincidence that the same week she announced the split with Tratwick and wouldn't return to X Factor, she also announced a change in management agency and a contract to work in Vegas???

Ive noticed when one member of the couple gets extremely MORE successful SUDDENLY, they always seem to break up. Look at Olivia Wilde, Milia Kunis (Maculay) , Ashton Kutcher (Demi), etc...

It's always unfortunate when two people are in such drastically different places, but kudos to both of them for not selling out on what was ultimately important to them. It doesn't seem to be a messy situation...but I'll give TMZ time ;)

...MICHELLE---YOU STATED:

"He is NO good for her. He has been cheating on her for years. She deserves someone who will respect her and love her for who she is, faults and all. He is a cad."--------


My question is---Why do women think they inherently deserve the best that life has to offer just because they have had the biological luck of being born with a gash between the legs???


Do you know this b#tch personally??? How do you know what she deserves???


Contrary to popular belief, owning a vagina does not make you anymore deserving to anything than if you owned a penis.


As we all should know by now many women are nothing but useless, scandalous, brainless, sewer rats in heat, and deserve whatever comes to them accordingly.


Now MICHELLE my suggestion to you is to make yourself useful by going into the kitchen--- and making some unfortunate man a sandwich---that's assuming you even have a man since you spend so much time making blithering comments on TMZ....Artofwar

Seems a little coincidental that Kevin Federline's brother just told the nation that he is the father of Brit's youngest son.....
