Sam Asghari filed for divorce from his wife Britney Spears because of "irreconcilable differences."

Earlier on Wednesday, a number of sources told People magazine that Spears and Asghari had ended their relationship. The news of their separation was first reported by TMZ.

Nevertheless, in February different sources reported to the outlet that the Toxic singer’s inner circle had "grown concerned."

In March, there were rumors that the pair was having marital issues, but Asghari's agent, Brandon Cohen from BAC Talent, immediately shot them down.

Cohen explained to the outlet that Asghari took off his ring because he was filming a movie in response to images that showed him and Spears without their wedding bands.

Asghari claimed in November that he had been cast in the Taylor Sheridan-produced television series Lioness, albeit it was unclear what movie he was filming at the time.

The couple was first met on the set of Spears album Slumber Party and later got married in June 2022.

Asghari has also assisted the pop sensation in 2019 with her mental health treatment before they got married.

The actor, 29, stepped up to help Spears more heavily as she battled with her father's health scare after she entered a facility for "all-encompassing wellness treatment" in April 2019.

A Spears family source told People magazine, "There is no question that Sam is great for Britney. He has a very positive influence on her. He is very motivated to stay healthy and fit, and they often work out together."

Not only this, the aspiring actor has also extended his support to Spears during conservatorship battle.
