Britney’s separation from her husband seems one of the most ‘toxic’ battles of Britney Spears’ life: Sam Asghari claims she cheated and beat him, demands more cash, and says ‘s–t happens’.
In a dramatic turn of events, Sam Asghari, the 29-year-old fitness trainer who was her third husband, has unleashed a barrage of accusations following his divorce filing on Thursday. Alleging infidelity and physical abuse, he appeared to dismiss their six-year relationship with one word, ‘S–t happens’.

Among the startling claims, Asghari accused her of giving him a black eye while he slept. The Iranian-born Asghari also asserted that Spears requested a staff member to film her in the nude and alleged an affair with a household employee. After a flurry of allegations, Asghari later issued a somewhat milder statement, expressing, “Following six years of love and mutual dedication, my wife and I have chosen to conclude our journey together.”

He continued, “We will cherish the love and respect we still hold, and I extend my best wishes to her always.” However, he added, “Life takes its twists and turns.”
Asghari also urged for understanding, stating, “Given the circumstances, seeking privacy may seem impractical, but I do request that everyone, including the media, approach this situation with kindness and thoughtfulness.” Meanwhile, Spears has not yet commented publicly, but she has enlisted the services of renowned divorce attorney Laura Wasser.
According to an insider speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Spears insists she is innocent of any cheating and is deeply wounded by the heartrending dissolution of their relationship. “Life was never promised to be simple,” remarked Adam Streisand, the Los Angeles trial lawyer who Spears had considered as her legal counsel back in 2008 during a very public crisis. “Yet, she retains the autonomy to navigate her relationships, however tumultuous they may be.”
Suspicions about their 14-month marriage had surfaced earlier when Spears was spotted without her wedding ring. Subsequently, reports emerged on Wednesday afternoon indicating their marriage was in jeopardy. However, less than 24 hours later, divorce papers were filed, swiftly followed by allegations of infidelity and aggression from Asghari’s side.
Furthermore, rumors circulated that Asghari’s camp hinted at the possibility of exposing more damaging revelations about Spears if certain financial demands beyond their prenuptial agreement were not met.
