After her legal battle, Britney Spears faces a new ordeal with Asghari. What happened ?

After only 14 months of marriage, Sam Asghari filed for divorce from Britney Spears, according to information reported by several American media such as TMZ, People and Entertainment Tonight.

A source close to the 29-year-old model reportedly confirmed that the divorce petition was filed on Wednesday August 16. Rumors about the couple’s difficulties have been growing in recent months.

A couple under pressure

Britney Spears, who had previously been through two high-profile marriages, announced her engagement to Sam Asghari in September 2021. However, their relationship appeared to be strained by various difficult events, including the loss of a baby early in her pregnancy in May 2022 , a month before their wedding. This ordeal added to the constant attention from the media and fans, as well as the legal battle to end the conservatorship of her father, Jamie Spears.

The reasons for divorce

If the exact causes that led to this decision are still unclear, it would seem that the tensions between Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are not new. Several sources claim that their arguments were frequent and often public. Some also cite problems related to their difference in age and lifestyle, as well as differences regarding their common life plans.

Divergent careers

One of the reasons cited to justify this separation would be the desire of each to focus on their respective careers. Indeed, while Britney Spears recently ended her residency in Las Vegas and seems to want to return to the front of the music scene, Sam Asghari continues her successful modeling and acting career.

  • Britney Spears reportedly told those close to her that she wanted to regain her status as a pop icon and work on a new album,
  • Sam Asghari, meanwhile, reportedly expressed his frustration with his wife’s hectic lifestyle and his difficulty balancing his own career with Britney’s.

The consequences of divorce

The battle for child custody

If the couple did not have children together, Britney Spears is already the mother of two boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James, from her first marriage with Kevin Federline. The question of custody of the latter could be one of the main issues in this divorce procedure. Indeed, the American singer has already lost a large part of her parental rights during her separation from Federline and could fear seeing this situation repeat itself.

Division of property

Another crucial question concerns the division of property between Britney Spears and Sam Asghari. The fortune of the singer is estimated at several tens of millions of dollars, while that of her husband is much less. A prenuptial agreement was reportedly signed before their marriage, but the details of it remain unknown. It will probably be necessary to wait for the outcome of the procedure to find out more about the fate of their common heritage.

An uncertain future for Britney Spears

After a difficult period marked by the end of his guardianship and the hardships crossed with Sam Asghari, Britney Spears will now have to face the consequences of this divorce. However, her fans and those close to her hope that she will be able to bounce back and find the balance that will allow her to pursue her career and continue to shine on stage.

Only time will tell if the popstar will be able to overcome these obstacles and return to the success that made her famous around the world.
