After Britney Spears finally spoke out about her pending divorce from Sam Asghari, new allegations are revealing the reason for the divorce.
“As everyone knows, Hesam and I are no longer together … 6 years is a long time to be with someone so, I’m a little shocked but … I’m not here to explain why because it’s honestly nobody’s business,” Britney’s statement began. “But, I couldn’t take the pain anymore honestly !!! In some sort of telepathic way I have been receiving so many messages that melt my heart from friends and I thank you !!! I’ve been playing it strong for way too long and my Instagram may seem perfect but it’s far from reality and I think we all know that !!!”
“I would love to show my emotions and tears on how I really feel but some reason I’ve always had to hide my weaknesses !!! If I wasn’t my dad’s strong soldier, I would be sent away to places to get fixed by doctors !!! But that’s when I needed family the most !!! You’re supposed to be loved unconditionally … not under conditions !!!! So I will be as strong as I can and do my best !!! And I’m actually doing pretty damn good !!! Anyways have a good day and don’t forget to smile,” Britney continued.
But while Spears says she couldn’t take the pain anymore, other reports are suggesting the divorce comes after an explosive fight between the couple which stemmed from Sam believing Britney had cheated on him with one of her housekeepers. Various sources say Britney denied the allegations but Sam didn’t believe her.
By now, most of us have heard the news – Sam Asghari and Britney Spears are headed for a divorce. The motion was filed by Sam on Wednesday (August 16). In the days since, a lot of the attention has turned to the couple’s prenup – which was signed a few days after they tied the knot in June 2022.
According to TMZ, which has sources with direct knowledge of the prenup, Sam isn’t set to receive anything from the divorce – no payout and no spousal support. While he gets to keep any of the gifts Britney gave him during their seven-year relationship (including the cars), he won’t get anything else.
Not only that, but TMZ is reporting that there’s an ‘extensive confidentiality clause’ in the prenup that prohibits Sam from talking about their relationship and anything he knows about her life. And while Sam claimed he has no intention of challenging that prenup, TMZ’s inside sources are suggesting otherwise.
According to the divorce papers that were filed by Sam Asghari’s lawyer, Neal Hersh, the 29-year-old asked for spousal support – which is prohibited in the prenup. The divorce papers also cite community property and quasi-community property, both of which suggest a potential challenge to the prenup.
In the event Sam does receive spousal support and the prenup is successfully challenged, then it would deem the ‘extensive confidentiality clause’ unenforceable. If that were to happen, then Britney Spears will have to live with the fact that Sam could, if he wanted to, talk about her life story and their relationship.
Considering Sam has ‘A LOT of first-hand knowledge about Britney, their relationship, their arguments, her challenges, etc.,’ according to TMZ, that could become troublesome for Britney – especially if certain details about her life, which she has worked hard to keep private, would become public for the first time.
With all that said, Britney Spears would have every reason to negotiate a separate agreement that would ensure Sam walks away with as much as several hundred thousand dollars. In return, Sam would sign a confidentiality clause – giving Britney the peace of mind she needs as they go their separate ways.
