Britney Spears‘s husband of one year, Sam Asghari, has reportedly filed for divorce and moved out of the house after a “nuclear row”.
Sam Asghari, the husband of Britney Spears, has announced that he has filed for divorce.
“We do not know if the rumour has any basis in fact, but we’re told Sam believed it and the two had a huge fight and swiftly moved out.
According to Page Six, Asghari allegedly wants his estranged wife to pay him more than what their prenup provides in order to keep her secrets following their split.
A source claimed that the Family Business actor is “attempting to negotiate concessions beyond his prenup and threatening to go public with extraordinarily embarrassing information about Britney unless he gets paid.”
The insider added to the outlet: “So that’s what Sam is focused on.”
However, a separate source adds that Spears’ team has “protected” the Piece of Me singer and that “parting will be respectful.”
“It’s blackmail and it’ll never happen,” the insider also tells Page Six.
Recently, the trailer dropped for an upcoming documentary on the couple called TMZ Investigates Britney Spears: The Price of Freedom.
The 30-second clip pointed to problems between Britney and Sam, and executive producer Harvey Levin suggests their marriage has been in “deep trouble” for months.
Britney reportedly “got physical” with Sam in fights and screaming matches and Sam frequently wasn’t sleeping at their home.
Back in March, Britney was spotted out without her wedding ring on, according to OK Magazine.
Sam was also spotted without his ring around that time.
He then posted a gym selfie to Instagram with his ring on to clap back at rumours.
A source told Mirror: “Sam is not having marital issues. He simply took off his ring because he is filming a movie.”
Around the time of the ring rumours, Britney went on a vacation with Cate Hudson and left Sam behind.
Britney also recently shared a cryptic throwback video while in Mexico before tying the knot, she wrote: “Throwback to Mexico…before I got married…so happy and silly here!!!” with various emojis.
Britney is set to do a tell-all interview with Oprah ahead of her tell-all memoir release on October 24.
A source told ET: “Britney and Sam have had ups and downs throughout their relationship.
“They have a lot of love for each other, but they also argue a lot over fundamental issues.
“Recently, things took a bad turn and their arguments became more serious and real.”
“Sam is thrilled that Britney finally has the opportunity and freedom to speak her truth with her book.”
Britney has regularly displayed concerning behaviour on Instagram in various dance clips this past year, worrying fans with rumours of drug use ensuing from ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Hesam Asghari, who now goes by Sam, was born on March 3, 1994, in Tehran, Iran but moved to the United States when he was 13 years old.
Sam has shared concerning statements of his own on his Instagram page while posting images of his naked torso and snaps from a movie set.
A clip Sam posted on April 9 showed him sitting at the wheel of a Toyota Corolla in Atlanta while he was shooting a movie.
During his monologue, the actor said the car reminded him of his youth.
Sam confessed he had felt “ashamed” when he pulled up to school or football practices in a car that was different from his friend’s luxury ones.
He went on to explain: “It’s what you bring with yourself. Driving a better car does not make you a better person.”
Britney and Sam
Britney and Sam were romantically linked in 2016, meeting when he starred in a music video of hers, and got engaged on September 12, 2021.
Previously her conservatorship hadn’t allowed them to do so, nor was she allowed to expand her family.
‘Erratic at times’
Sources also told TMZ that Britney’s behaviour had been erratic “at times,” and Sam had reached his limit.
Neither party has publicly commented on the breakup report yet.
