Britney Spears’s husband, Iran-born Sam Asghari, the fitness trainer filed for divorce from the pop star Wednesday just hours after news of their split broke, multiple outlets report.
Sam Asghari and Britney Spears have officially decided to end their relationship.
TMZ reports that Asghari cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. He is also seeking spousal support and coverage of his legal fees from Spears.
What is the separation date?
Interestingly, Asghari stated their separation date as July 28. His attorney, Neal Hersh, hinted at a potential challenge to their prenuptial agreement, as court documents revealed that Asghari has not fully determined the extent of their respective assets and obligations.
The motive behind Hersh’s alleged actions seems to align with a recent claim from a source who told Page Six that Asghari may be seeking to renegotiate the prenup to safeguard certain undisclosed information about Spears. The source suggested that Asghari might reveal embarrassing details about Britney unless he receives financial compensation.
Meanwhile, Spears is not taking this situation lightly. Page Six has learned that she has enlisted the services of renowned divorce attorney Laura Wasser.

What were the troubles in the relationship?
Speculation about troubles in the relationship between Asghari, 29, and Spears, 41, had been circulating for some time, fueled by reports that the couple had been living separately.
Who was Cheating?
Earlier on Wednesday, Page Six confirmed the breakup, with sources suggesting that a major argument, possibly involving allegations of infidelity, had occurred between the two. Multiple insiders informed TMZ that the heated dispute arose when Asghari confronted Spears about a rumor suggesting her unfaithfulness.
“It seems inevitable that Sam will initiate divorce proceedings,” one insider revealed, noting that Asghari had already established his own living arrangements.
