Britney Spears\’ husband Sam Asghari says their marriage is over

On Wednesday, a divorce petition was submitted and subsequently reported by BBC News, outlining \”irreconcilable differences\” between Mr. Asghari, aged 29, and Ms. Spears, aged 41.

After getting engaged in September 2021, the couple tied the knot in an intimate yet celebrity-studded ceremony in June 2022.

This year, speculations about their marital challenges surfaced in US tabloids.

At the age of 16, Ms. Spears skyrocketed to global stardom with her song \”…Baby One More Time,\” which paved the way for hits like \”Toxic,\” \”Womanizer,\” and \”Oops!…I Did It Again.\”

Please note that the language below might be considered offensive.
Mr. Asghari took to Instagram to share, \”Following six years of shared love and commitment, my wife and I have reached the conclusion to end our journey together. We\’ll continue to cherish the love and respect we hold, and I wish her all the best. Life happens. I find it unnecessary to ask for privacy, so I kindly request that everyone, including the media, approach this situation with kindness and thoughtfulness.\”

No official statements have been made by representatives of Ms. Spears at this point.

In a post to her 42 million Instagram followers on Wednesday night, the musician didn\’t directly address the divorce but rather mentioned her intention to \”soon acquire a horse.\”

Based on the divorce petition filed by Mr. Asghari in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, he is seeking spousal support and attorney fees from Ms. Spears.

The Iranian-American actor, model, and fitness trainer crossed paths with Ms. Spears while she was filming the music video for her song \”Slumber Party\” in 2016.

He was a vocal advocate of her efforts to terminate her father Jamie\’s conservatorship, a battle she successfully concluded mere months before their wedding.

Their wedding last year, held at Ms. Spears\’ residence in Thousand Oaks, California, was an elegant and exclusive event attended by celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Madonna, and Drew Barrymore.

Notably, they had recently been seen without their wedding rings in public.

This separation occurs as Ms. Spears readies for the release of her memoir titled \”The Woman in Me,\” scheduled for October.

This marks the conclusion of her third marriage.

In 2004, she briefly married her childhood friend Jason Alexander, a union lasting only 55 hours in Las Vegas, which she annulled due to advice from her management team.

Mr. Alexander, who was observed participating in the pro-Trump riot at the US Capitol in January 2021, attempted to disrupt Ms. Spears\’ wedding to Mr. Asghari just hours before their union.

He faced charges of trespassing, vandalism, and two counts of battery, resulting in a court order to stay away from her.

Ms. Spears\’ second marriage, to rapper Kevin Federline, endured from 2004 to 2007. Mr. Federline retains sole custody of their two children, Jayden James and Sean Preston.
