Sam Asghari, the husband of Britney Spears, has officially filed for divorce from the pop superstar, marking the end of their 14-month marriage. This development was confirmed by a source close to Asghari, though not authorized to speak publicly, late on Wednesday. Reports about the couple’s separation had already surfaced through outlets like TMZ and People magazine.
Asghari and Spears tied the knot on June 9, 2022, in an intimate ceremony held at Spears’ home in Thousand Oaks, California. The wedding was attended by notable figures like Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton, and Madonna. This event marked a significant milestone in Spears’ life, as it came just six months after the termination of a court conservatorship that had controlled her life for over 13 years.
Their love story began when Asghari, a model and actor, appeared in Spears’ music video for the song “Slumber Party” in 2016. The desire to marry Asghari played a role in Spears’ push to end the conservatorship, which she felt was impeding her personal choices. Their engagement was announced in September 2021, coinciding with the conclusion of the conservatorship in November of the same year.
Tragedy struck the couple in May 2022 when Spears revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage early in her pregnancy. Despite this heartbreak, they proceeded to marry about a month later.
Rumors of difficulties within their marriage had been circulating in recent months, and these speculations were confirmed by the divorce filing.
For Asghari, this marriage represented his first, whereas Spears had previously been married twice. Her first marriage was a short-lived union with childhood friend Jason Alexander in 2004, which ended within three days. Later that same year, she wed dancer Kevin Federline, with whom she shares custody of their two teenage sons. Their marriage was characterized by media scrutiny and Spears’ struggles with mental health.
In May of the previous year, Spears had shared the painful news of a miscarriage on her Instagram. She expressed the sorrow of losing what she called their “miracle baby” and reflected on the difficulties of this experience as a parent.
Spears’ social media accounts featured posts of her and Asghari together, most notably riding horses on a beach in July. Their romantic moments were often shared online, offering glimpses into their relationship.
As news of their divorce emerges, fans and the public are left to process the end of a chapter in Spears’ life that had been marked by personal and legal struggles, as well as newfound freedoms.
