Sam Asghari, the husband of pop superstar Britney Spears, has filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Asghari is seeking spousal support and payment of legal fees from Spears. In an Instagram statement, Asghari announced that he and Spears have decided to end their journey together but will maintain love and respect for each other. He requested kindness and thoughtfulness from everyone, including the media. Representatives for Spears have not yet commented on the situation.
Asghari and Spears got married in June 2022 after dating for nearly six years. The wedding took place after a judge ended the conservatorship that had controlled Spears’ personal life and finances for 13 years. During the court proceedings, Spears expressed her desire to get married and start a new family without any restrictions. The conservatorship was established by her father, Jamie Spears, following her public breakdown in 2007.
This is Spears’ third marriage and Asghari’s first. She was previously married to Jason Alexander in 2004, but the marriage was annulled shortly after. She then married Kevin Federline, with whom she has two children, but they divorced in 2007. Spears is a Grammy-winning pop artist known for hits like “Baby One More Time,” “Oops! … I Did It Again,” and “Stronger.” Asghari, who is of Iranian descent, is a personal trainer and actor.
The divorce filing comes after Spears’ legal battle to end the conservatorship gained significant attention and support from fans and celebrities alike. The couple’s decision to part ways marks a new chapter in their lives, and they have asked for privacy during this time. The divorce proceedings will likely be closely followed by the media and the public.
