Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are officially divorced and single


Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are officially divorced and single.

The dissolution of the couple’s marriage was finalized Friday by a Los Angeles County judge, nearly two years after the two married.

The ruling comes hours after the 42-year-old pop superstar and the 30-year-old model and actor informed the court that they had reached a divorce settlement, and a week after Spears reached a court settlement with her father. due to persistent problems in his guardianship.

The couple filed court papers Thursday and Friday saying they had reached an agreement to divide their assets. Few details were made public, but neither Spears nor Asghari will receive spousal support in the future. Asghari had said in her initial petition that she would seek financial support. Any future disputes must be resolved through private arbitration.

Spears and Asghari separated in July and he filed for divorce in August. They had been dating for about seven years.

The two did not have children together, so no custody agreement was necessary. Spears wrote in her memoir published last year that she and Asghari suffered a miscarriage early in the pregnancy, about a month before they were married.

Emails seeking details or comment from lawyers for Spears and Asghari were not immediately returned.

Her marriage at her home in June 2022 in front of guests including Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton and Madonna was seen as a triumphant milestone in her newly recovered life after being released a few months earlier from the court guardianship that controlled her life. her and money for over 13 years.

But they would separate a little more than a year later.

Last Friday, Spears and her father, Jamie Spears, reached an agreement on the outstanding issues of that legal settlement, avoiding what could have been a long, ugly and revealing trial that was scheduled to begin later this month.

Spears has said little publicly about the split.

In an Instagram post shortly after filing for divorce, she said: “I’m not here to explain why because honestly it’s nobody’s business!!! But I honestly couldn’t take the pain anymore!!!” “.

In her memoir, “The Woman in Me,” published two months after Asghari filed for divorce, Spears speaks only briefly and positively about Asghari. She describes him holding her hand as she addressed a judge remotely during a key hearing that helped end her conservatorship.

Like the vast majority of those who file for divorce in California, Asghari cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the separation.

It was Spears’ third marriage. She has two teenage children with her previous husband Kevin Federline, to whom she was married from 2004 to 2007, a time when intense media scrutiny caused her emotional difficulties.

Spears was married for less than three days in 2004 to childhood friend Jason Alexander, who tried to ruin her wedding to Asghari and was later convicted of misdemeanor trespassing and assault.

Spears met and began dating Asghari, a model and actor, when she appeared in his video for the song “Slumber Party” in 2016.

She cited her desire to marry him as one of the reasons she wanted to end the restrictive guardianship, which she said was impeding this. The two announced their engagement in September 2021.

Since the conservatorship ended, Spears has released music, including a collaboration with Elton John in 2022. But she hasn’t performed live in years and said she has no intention of performing or making a new album.
