Sam Asghari, 29, and Britney Spears, 41, have decided to end their marriage after 14 months, he confirmed via his Instagram Story on Aug. 17. “After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together,” he began in the statement. “We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.”

The 29-year-old, who Brit married in Jun. 2022, went on to ask for kindness from the media. “S*** happens. Asking for privacy seems rediculous [sic] so I will just ask for everyone including the media to be kind and thoughtful,” Sam concluded. He filed to end their marriage in the Superior Court of Los Angeles on Aug. 16, in documents obtained by NBC News. HollywoodLife has reached out to Britney’s rep for comment on their divorce but did not receive an immediate response.

In the petition obtained by the previously mentioned outlet, Sam is requesting that the “Hold Me Closer” songstress pay for spousal support and for his attorneys’ fees. “Petitioner has yet to determine the full nature and extent of the separate property assets and obligations of each party,” the filing read, per NBC News. “Petitioner reserves the right to amend this Petition or to conform the Petition to proof.” Sam signed a prenup when he married Britney last year, however, he is reportedly expected to “contest” the agreement, as reported by TMZ on Aug. 16.

More so, Sam is reportedly moving out of their shared home in Los Angeles, a source told NBC News on Aug. 16. Amid the ongoing divorce drama, a separate source told Page Six the day of the filing that Sam is “threatening” his estranged wife with “embarrassing” information in order to allegedly be paid more. The insider alleged that he is “attempting to negotiate concessions beyond his prenup and threatening to go public with extraordinarily embarrassing information about Britney unless he gets paid.”

Meanwhile, the 41-year-old has yet to issue a statement on her split from the model. Brit’s most recent Instagram post from Aug. 16 pertained to her latest desire to purchase a horse. “Buying a horse soon !!! So many options it’s kinda hard !!! A horse called Sophie and another called Roar ??? I can’t make up my mind !!! Should I join the camaraderie and put a pink cowboy hat on ??? Either way I think I found my sweet spot with Roar !!!”, she captioned the photo of herself in a bikini while on the horse. As many know, Brit’s marriage prior to Sam was to Kevin Federline, 45, which lasted from 2004 to 2007. She shares two sons with the former dancer including sons Sean, 17, and Jayden, 16.
