Sam Asghari, the husband of pop superstar Britney Spears, is seeking to divorce the singer he married last year after she was released from a legal conservatorship. The 29-year-old Asghari cited “irreconcilable differences” in a filing in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday. He is seeking spousal support and payment of legal fees by Spears.
In a statement on Instagram, Asghari said he and Spears “have decided to end our journey together.” He added, “Asking for privacy seems ridiculous so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful.” As news about pop sensation Britney Spears’ and fitness expert Sam Asghari’s divorce gain momentum, developments suggested that matters had surpassed just the cheating allegations Sam made.
While neither party had publicly addressed the looming conversation surrounding their split, Brandon Cohen, who is a representative for the fitness tycoon, made the following statement as determined by The Hollywood Reporter, “There are many claims that Sam is challenging the prenup and threatening to exploit his ex-wife with videos. However, all these claims are false as no negative intention has ever been directed towards [Britney] and never will be. Sam has always and will always support her.”
Having not commented on the situation initially, Sam, in his Instagram Stories, finally addressed the matter in a rather respectable manner, writing, “We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.” Spears and her representatives are yet to publicly comment on the matter.
Previously, Page Six reported that Sam was allegedly looking to renegotiate the prenuptial contract that the coupled signed a year ago. While the exact sum of the amount was undetermined, US Weekly claimed that the trainer was originally entitled to receive $1 million every two years during their marriage, with a maximum cut-off at $10 million after fifteen years.
It was also rumoured that the fitness trainer attributed the reason for an increased demand towards gatekeeping undisclosed information that could be disastrous for the pop icon, in addition to TMZ sources claiming that the marriage was plagued with physical altercations that once left Sam with a black eye and bite marks on his arm.
However, with his latest statement and that of his representative’s, it appears that Sam has no intentions of exploiting his soon-to-be ex-wife.
