Actress Britney Spears and actor-model Sam Asghari are reportedly separating after 14 months of their wedding. As per reports, Sam has filed for divorce. As per reports in various portals, Sam filed paperwork to legally separate from Britney on August 16.
As per TMZ, in the document, Sam listed the date of separation as July 28, 2023, and mentioned "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce. It also reported that Sam is asking the pop star to pay spousal support and attorneys fees, but his filing stated that he "has yet to determine the full nature and extent of the separate property assets and obligations of each party."
A source told NBC News, "They're separated and it's best for Britney."
Sam and Britney were together for seven years before the separation. They first met in 2016 on the set of the latter's 'Slumber Party' music video. In 2017, during an appearance on CBS radio station AMP 103.7, Britney recalled, "I kept his number, and it was so weird because it was like five months later that I found his number in my bag. I was like 'He was really cute. This guy was really cute!' so then I called him. He is just a really fun, funny person."
The pair got engaged in September 2021 amid Britney's bid to end her 13-year conservatorship.
During the legal battle, the 41-year-old testified that she and Sam wanted to start a family together, but accused her conservators of preventing her from going off birth control. In November 2021, her conservatorship was terminated. Sam also wanted to have kids with Britney. In the same month, the singer announced that they were expecting but in May 2022, they shared that "we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy."
In June 2022, Britney and Sam got married in a star-studded wedding.
