Britney knew her breakup with Jason Trawick was on the way, despite other reports painting the picture in a contrasting light. By mid-December, she was no longer wearing her engagement ring and knew her fairytale wedding was out, a source close to the family tells People.

“Britney spent Christmas in L.A. with [sons] Preston and Jayden. Jason was around for parts of the holiday, but it was very obvious that they were not really together anymore,” the source says.

“They were not affectionate and instead just seemed to keep things going for the boys’ sake. Britney looked a bit gloomy and tense over the holidays.”

Jason moved out after the holidays, and the announcement was made shortly after.

The two were engaged in December, 2011, “but lately she acted like she knew it would not happen,” the source says. “She hasn’t talked about her wedding plans in a couple of months.”

However, in the beginning of their engagement, Britney wanted to “rush in, but there were things that needed to improve before they got to that place.”

“She would spend hours online looking at dresses and dreaming.”

“They love each other, but like any relationship, and especially this one, there were some major challenges and hurdles and constant work that needed to be done. At the end of the day, it just wasn’t working, and things were’t going to change, so it was time to let go.”
