Britney Spears and her husband have separated

 August 17, 2023

Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are reportedly ending their marriage after 14 months.

The separation comes amidst rumors of confrontations over alleged infidelity. This happened after a series of events in their relationship, which began when they met during the filming of Spears' "Slumber Party" music video, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Confrontation over infidelity rumors

The 41-year-old singer and her 29-year-old actor husband reportedly had a "nuclear argument" over rumors that Spears had been unfaithful.

Asghari is believed to have confronted Spears about these allegations, leading to massive fallout. The authenticity of these rumors remains unconfirmed.

Asghari has since moved out of their shared home and now resides separately. Representatives for both Spears and Asghari have been contacted for comments regarding the situation.

Relationship timeline and future uncertainties

The couple tied the knot in June 2022 but had been romantically involved since 2016.

An insider informed TMZ that it might only be a matter of time before Asghari files for divorce.

This news comes shortly after Spears shared a provocative video on her Instagram, showcasing her new stripper pole.

Britney's recent online activities

In the video, Spears danced to Nine Inch Nails' explicit song "Closer." The song, known for its controversial lyrics, has been described by fans as a reflection on self-hatred and obsession.

Spears captioned the post, detailing her recent purchase of the pole and her initial experience with it.

In June, Asghari celebrated their first wedding anniversary by sharing several posts on social media.

He referred to Spears as his "better half" and reminisced about their lavish wedding day, which took place at Spears' Thousand Oaks residence.

Star-studded wedding and family tensions

Their wedding was a grand affair, attended by celebrities like Paris Hilton, Madonna, Selena Gomez, and Drew Barrymore.

However, Spears' estranged family, including her controversial parents Jamie and Lynne Spears, were notably absent from the guest list.

Before their wedding, the couple had signed a robust prenuptial agreement. This agreement ensures that Asghari wouldn't receive any of Spears' earnings made before their marriage.

The specifics about earnings during their marriage remain unclear.

Spears' financial history and conservatorship

As of 2021, Spears had an estimated net worth of around $60 million. However, insiders claim that her fortune was significantly larger in the early 2000s. It dwindled down to a few million by the time her conservatorship was established in 2008.

Under the conservatorship, Spears received a weekly allowance of $2,000.

In contrast, her father took a monthly salary of $16,000 to oversee the conservatorship. Her former attorney, Samuel Ingham III, was reportedly paid an annual salary of $520,000.

Personal challenges and aspirations

The couple faced a personal tragedy shortly after their wedding. Spears announced her pregnancy in April 2022, but they later revealed the loss of their unborn child.

The couple expressed their grief and gratitude for the support they received during this challenging time.

Spears had previously spoken about her desire to get married and have more children. However, her conservatorship, established in 2008, had restricted her from doing so. She revealed in a 2021 hearing that she had an IUD to prevent pregnancy.

How their love story began

Spears and Asghari first crossed paths during the filming of the aforementioned music video in 2016. Spears personally chose Asghari for the role.

Their professional collaboration soon turned into a romantic relationship, evolving like any other couple's would.

Asghari, who has since ventured into acting, expressed his desire to become a young father. He views children as the "next step" and the "joy of life."

Previous relationships in the limelight

Britney's relationship history includes notable names. She dated Justin Timberlake, her co-star from the Mickey Mouse Club, and their breakup became a significant media event.

Timberlake later apologized for his actions post their split.

Another relationship that garnered attention was with backup dancer Columbus Short in 2003. Controversies arose when Short claimed to have overheard racial slurs from Spears' parents, which they denied.

Britney's brief marriages

Britney's first marriage was with childhood friend Jason Alexander in 2004.

The union was annulled within 55 hours. Interestingly, Alexander made headlines again when he attempted to crash Britney's wedding with Sam in 2022, leading to his arrest.

Her second marriage was with Kevin Federline, with whom she shares two sons. Their divorce in 2007 and subsequent custody battles played a significant role in the establishment of her conservatorship.
