Pop star Britney Spears is allegedly heading for divorce from her husband Sam Asghari. Asghari, a model, personal trainer, and actor, is allegedly attempting to blackmail the singer into renegotiating their prenuptial agreement with threats to release “embarrassing” personal information about her. The allegations of a prenup battle and split were first reported by Page Six.

The couple married in June 2022, months after the singer was reportedly released from her decades long restrictive conservatorship. Spears was placed in the arrangement by her parents following a manic episode that led to her bipolar disorder diagnosis shortly after. Spears alleged that she was forced to perform, maintain an IUD as a form of birth control, and had restricted access to her two sons, who she shares with ex husband Kevin Federline.

The wedding was attended by numerous celebrities from different sectors of the entertainment industry. Given Spears’ high profile legal battle, fans of the star previously questioned Asghari’s motives for marriage.

Public Reaction

While the claims regarding Asghari allegedly attempting to blackmail the singer remain unconfirmed, many continue to point out that this form of manipulation is illegal.


Many joked that Asghari remained fairly unknown until his relationship with Spears.

Some felt disappointed that Asghari appeared to support Spears during such a challenging point in her life, only to allegedly turn on her.

Asghari frequently spoke to the press on Spears’ behalf, or about their relationship. This dynamic had some questioning whether the conservatorship had only been replaced with another form of legal control.


Elsewhere, some continue to recognize the strange trend in high profile celebrity divorces this year.

Many are tracing their steps in the public reaction to Spears’ wedding. One X user commented that the wedding could have actually been intended as another form of control over the singer.

TMZ reported that Asghari allegedly confronted Spears over cheating rumors. Fans of the singer continue to accuse TMZ of biased reporting against Spears.

On the cheating allegations, fans are already finding fallacy with the story. Spears was under a conservatorship for decades, and was essentially on house arrest outside of medical appointments and pre-determined appearances in public. This background in mind, some think that it was actually Asghari that cheated on Spears, and that he is circulating false information among the tabloid media.

Regardless of the truth of the situation, loyal fans of the singer continue to offer words of support to her during this difficult time.

Others sense that the marriage dissolving could wind up being a positive thing. If the theory regarding Asghari marrying Spears to control her is true, this could be Spears’ final step to freedom.

Spears is yet to comment directly on the divorce, and neither has Asghari.
