The pair’s engagement in September 2021 led to a star-studded wedding ceremony in June 2022. Rumors about their struggles surfaced earlier this year in US tabloids. Spears, who gained fame with “…Baby One More Time” at 16, has hits like “Toxic” and “Oops!…I Did It Again.”
In a post on Instagram, Mr Asghari said: “After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together.
“We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.” Shit happens. “Asking for privacy seems rediculous [sic] so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful.”
Spears’ representatives have not commented, and she didn’t address the divorce on Instagram, instead, she shared her excitement about “buying a horse soon.” The dissolution of marriage petition, filed by Asghari, seeks spousal support and attorneys’ fees from Spears. The couple met during the filming of her song “Slumber Party” in 2016. Asghari supported her fight against her father’s conservatorship.
Their wedding, attended by Paris Hilton, Madonna, and Drew Barrymore, was held in Thousand Oaks, California, last year. Recently, they were seen without their wedding rings. This separation coincides with Spears’ upcoming memoir release in October. It marks her third marriage, with her first, lasting 55 hours, and the second, to Kevin Federline, ending in 2007. Federline has custody of their two children.
In 2021, Mr. Alexander attempted to disrupt Spears’ wedding to Asghari and faced legal consequences. Spears’ journey continues as she navigates her personal and professional life.
