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.

Well if they couldn't figure out the children situation, then yeah they should break it off; That is a non-negotiable.
You would think they would have discussed this much sooner.

She needs to focus on herself and her children. She needs to get herself together in order for her to be able to handle her own affairs. I can only see someone trying to take advantage of the situation if she has to be under a conservatorship.

I read that Britney was offered headlining in Las Vegas, if she did that there would be no time for kids as it would entail a full time commitment on her part, you would think!

An individual who is not competent to handle her own personal, medical, and financial affairs should not be bringing more children into the world no matter how much money her conservatorsare managing for her. Trawick was absolutely right. It is part of Spears' severe mental disability that she cannot recognize this reality.

Whatever the case it is probably for the best. If she is under a conservatorship she needs to be getting herself together in order to be able to handle her own affairs.

Further pregnancies may be a problem for her mental health. I have read that she is bipolar and if not bipolar then some other psyc problem. I am guessing that she has to take psyc drugs. Stopping them for a pregnancy may cause her problems to multiply. And the psyc drugs are not going to be good for a fetus.
