Britney Spears Split: Jason Trawick Worried About Star's Mental Issues, Insiders Claim

by at .  Updated at .

Britney Spears' breakup with Jason Trawick, her fiance of 13 months, was not as sudden as it might have seemed … if it seemed sudden at all, which it didn't.

If you read much celebrity gossip, you know that Britney split rumors have been off the hook lately, leading us to believe, sadly, that it was only a matter of time.

As for what caused the split?

Reports suggesting that kids were to blame - she wanted more, he did not - are likely partially true, but there could also be more to it. A lot more to it.

Jason Trawick had been highly and increasingly stressed over her mental health and eventually it just wore him down, according to FOX 411.

According to an insider: "The breakup has really been in motion awhile. Jason has been very stressed and concerned for Britney and what she might do if he left."

"He is worried about her and really loved her, but it started to take a real toll on him. The burden of taking care instead of a partnerships where she also takes care."

After more than three years together, the couple announced their split mutually on Friday, amid reports that Britney was dumping him from her conservatorship.

That care-taking role - Jason being in charge of Britney's career and life, in many respects - also killed the romance, an expert and a source close to the situation says.
