Shocking news came that Britney Spears and Sam Asghari’s marriage has come to an end, with Asghari filing for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.” They both remained silent about the situation, but as rumors and speculation grow, Asghari took to his Instagram story Thursday to share his statement.
The 29-year-old actor has Spears’ fans ready for war amid allegations he is making threats of sharing “embarrassing information,” and seeking spousal support. In his statement, he asked for kindness.
“Asking for privacy seems rediculous so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful,” it concluded
Although he spelled ridiculous wrong, it was a solid statement and could be his way of shutting down allegations that he would hurt Spears and that she decided to end their journey too.
While Spears may find herself back in the studio following the divorce, Asghari may have his eyes set on figuring out his finances.
The fitness enthusiast is asking that Spears pay spousal support and his attorneys’ fees. Plus, a source told Page Six he is allegedly “attempting to negotiate concessions beyond his prenup.”
The insider alleged that he is even threatening to go public with “extraordinarily embarrassing” information about his ex-wife unless he “gets paid.”
A rep for the actor denied the claims that he is challenging the prenup and threatening to exploit her. “All these claims are false, as no negative intention has ever been directed towards her and never will be,” Brandon Cohen of BAC Talent said. “Sam has always and will always support her.”Aside from Spears’ horse update, Extra reported Thursday that she is working on putting together a deal with Sony for what could be an “epic comeback album.”
The “Lucky” singer has an “upcoming writers camp” and is even getting songs from “big artists.”
The news comes ahead of her memoir, The Woman in Me, which has been described as “brutally honest.” Journalist Sam Lasky is the ghostwriter, and it’s expected to cover her conservatorship, her marriage to Asghari, and other topics she has never spoken about in public.
A second source told the outlet, “Ideally, she would love to do a record and maybe a song for the book release.”
