It's been a day filled with changes for Britney Spears . The latest news? She and her fiancé, Jason Trawick , have split.
Britney says in a statement provided to ABC News, "Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I'll always adore him and we will remain great friends." For his part, Trawick says, "As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever." Britney and Trawick announced their engagement in December of 2011.
What remains to be seen is how the split, which certainly appears to be amicable, will affect Britney and Jason's professional relationship.
