LOS ANGELES (AP) – Britney Spears’ husband Sam Asghari has filed for divorce from the singer 14 months after their marriage, according to a person familiar with the filing late Wednesday.

The individual, who is close to Asghari but is not permitted to talk publicly, verified the filing took place on Wednesday, only hours after many publications, including TMZ and People magazine, claimed the pair had split up.

An email addressed to a representative for Britney Spears was not immediately returned. The complaint was filed in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, according to court documents.

Spears married Asghari on June 9, 2022, at her home in Thousand Oaks, California, in front of guests including Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton, and Madonna, in a wedding seen as a watershed moment in her newly reclaimed life after the dissolution of the court conservatorship that had controlled her life for more than 13 years.

When Asghari, a model and actor, starred in her music video for “Slumber Party” in 2016, the pop diva met and began dating him.

She mentioned her desire to marry Asghari as one of the reasons she wanted the conservatorship lifted, which she said was blocking it.

Spears revealed that she and Asghari lost a baby in May 2022, approximately a month before their wedding.

The couple’s problems have been widely publicized in previous months.

Their marriage is the 29-year-old Asghari’s first, and the 41-year-old singer’s third. In 2004, she married Jason Alexander, a childhood acquaintance who attempted to crash her wedding to Asghari and was ultimately convicted of misdemeanor trespassing and violence.

She married dancer Kevin Federline in 2004. Their three-year marriage would come at a period when Spears was under severe public scrutiny and struggling with mental health issues. Federline is the biological father of her two teenage sons and has custody of them.

under 2008, she will be put under her father’s conservatorship. Initially, she fared well under the agreement, continuing to create recordings, film videos, and perform live, including a large concert engagement in Las Vegas. However, when she appeared less in public, supporters began to demand that the court #FreeBritney, resulting in what would become a significant campaign.

Spears has released songs since the conservatory ended, including a duet with Elton John in 2022, but she has not played live in years and has not indicated intentions to do so.

Her book, “The Woman in Me,” will be published in October.
