Britney Spears and Jason Trawick recently ended their engagement and a new report claims that the singer's desire to have more children is to blame for their abrupt split.
On Friday the pair broke up after three years together and fans immediately began to question what exactly went wrong. It has since been claimed that Spears, who has two children with her former husband Kevin Federline, wanted to expand her family however Trawick, 41, reportedly did not.
While the former talent agent is said to be fond of Spears' sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, he was reportedly not interested in having kids of his own. A source described him as being "in another place" and concerned that his involvement with Spears' empire "took away his individuality," TMZ.com reports.
In a recent statement Trawick insisted that his relationship with Spears, 31, and her children will be maintained despite their split.
"I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever," Trawick said in his own statement obtained by CNN.
Spears, who quit her "X Factor" judging role hours before the breakup announcement, appeared to be optimistic in her individual statment.
"I'll always adore him and we will remain great friends," Spears said in a statement.
The pair began dating in 2010 while Trawick was still Spears' agent although they eventually cut ties professionally. In December 2011 they announced their engagement and months later they began facing reports of relationship woes.
Trawick, who has since resigned as co-conservator of Spears' assets, was appointed to the role by a court which critics say eventually caused problems in their relationship.
"Britney doesn't think Jason is any fun and resents him because he acts more like a second father than a romantic partner, or equal," a source told RadarOnline.com. "Britney and Jason have been sleeping in separate bedrooms for a very long time, and she has been staying in a hotel during the week because of the live X Factor shows, and although Jason stays at the same hotel, he is in a room adjacent to hers."
