LOS ANGELES (AP) — Britney Spears capped a week of changes Friday with a judge accepting the resignation of her one-time fiance from the conservatorship that oversees many of her personal and financial matters.

Jason Trawick submitted his resignation and it was accepted Friday by Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz, who did not elaborate on a reason for the agent's exit from the case less than a year after he joined it.

Spears and Trawick have reportedly broken up, although attorneys for the singer's father and another co-conservator, Andrew Wallet, declined to discuss their relationship Friday. Emails sent to Spears' publicist, Jeff Raymond, were not immediately returned.

Spears has been under a court-supervised conservatorship since February 2008, with her father and Wallet having control over numerous aspects of her personal life. The case was opened after several incidents of erratic behavior by the pop singer and a pair of hospitalizations, but Spears has recovered and recently served as a judge on Fox's "The X Factor."

Spears ended that relationship this week, informing the network she would not return next season and planned to focus on her music.

Trawick and Spears were engaged in December 2011 and he was appointed a co-conservator along with her father, Jamie, in April. Jamie Spears met with Goetz for about an hour Friday but left before a hearing where Trawick's resignation was announced.

Trawick has served as Spears' agent, and the pair started dating in 2009.

The celebrity website TMZ reported Friday that that the pair had broken up.

Trawick did not have authority over Spears' finances, which have recovered since her public meltdown. Goetz recently reviewed and approved of an accounting that showed Spears ended 2010 with more than $27.5 million in assets, including nearly $15 million in cash.

Attorneys handling the case are expected to file updated financial statements in the coming months.
