Britney Spears’s Husband Files for Divorce
After being released from a conservatorship that had controlled her life for more than 13 years, Britney Spears married Sam Asghari in June 2022. However, the couple have now gone their separate ways, with Asghari filing for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
It was one of Spears' first major independent decisions after the court had terminated the conservatorship, and her public anguished plea to the judge that it was abusive.Mathew Rosengart - a lawyer for Spears - declined to comment on the news of her split.
The story's impact is still significant, gaining worldwide coverage even before documents were filed; a stark contrast to 15+ years ago when glossy magazines, newspapers and television breathlessly detailed her tribulations. At the time, some publications issued apologies for their approach and this development has brought such conversations into sharper focus once again.
