The former X Factor judge, mother to sons Preston, 7, and Jayden, 6, began dating Trawick in 2009. She accepted his proposal two years later, in December 2011. (The singer has been married twice before, to pal Jason Alexander and ex Kevin Federline.) Over the past several months, however, there have been increasing reports about trouble between the two.
News of the split comes on the same day Spears announced her official resignation from The X Factor. "I've made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. 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," the pop star said in a statement. "Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can't wait to get back out there and do what I love most."
