After initially crossing paths on the set of one of Spears’ music videos in 2016, the couple tied the knot in an intimate yet star-studded ceremony in June 2022.
Asghari, 29, stood by Spears, 41, during her journey towards improved mental health and the conclusion of her conservatorship.
However, recent gossip about their relationship struggles has been splashed across the pages of American tabloids.
Neither Spears nor Asghari’s representatives have issued any statements at this time.
The news was first broken by TMZ, and a source later confirmed to the Associated Press news agency that Asghari had officially filed for divorce.
The Iranian-American model and fitness trainer entered Spears’ life during the filming of the music video for her song “Slumber Party.”
He played a pivotal role in her conservatorship battle alongside her father Jamie, notably sporting a “Free Britney” T-shirt on Instagram just prior to a critical court hearing.
Asghari proposed to Spears at their shared residence in September 2021.
While they were engaged, the couple joyfully revealed that they were expecting their first child. Tragically, they later disclosed the miscarriage.
Their wedding, hosted at Spears’ Thousand Oaks, California home, was both an intimate and extravagant event graced by the presence of celebrities like Paris Hilton, Madonna, and Drew Barrymore.
Lately, observers noted the absence of wedding rings on both Spears and Asghari’s fingers.
Spears has not yet addressed the reported split on her social media platforms. Her most recent Instagram update, posted after news of the separation broke, focused solely on her plans to acquire a horse.
Coinciding with her impending memoir release titled “The Woman in Me,” scheduled for this October, the separation comes as Spears takes a significant step in sharing her personal story.
Notably, Spears was previously wed to childhood friend Jason Alexander for a mere 55 hours in 2004, and later to rapper Kevin Federline from 2004 to 2007. Her union with Federline resulted in the birth of two children.
