It’s true… Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have decided to call it quits—with their engagement, their professional relationship as talent and fiance-slash-manager as well as Jason‘s conservatorship over her. In fact, Jason has just come from court with Britney‘s dad, Jamie Spears, to officially remove himself and leave Jamie as the singer’s sole conservator.

The news comes just after Brit quit “X Factor” and changed agencies, which meant Trawick will no longer be managing her career.

While it may come as a shock to many, it has actually been a long time coming. According to TMZ‘s sources, the couple had a “friendly break up” because they simply “grew apart.”

Britney was nice enough to announce the split to PEOPLE, saying:

Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”

Similarly, Trawick 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.”

And here we thought that her family was whole again.

Are you sad about this split?
