Yesterday, Wednesday, it was announced that Britney Spears' (41) husband Sam Asghari (29) filed for divorce after 14 months of marriage. The reason given in court documents available to "People", among others, is "irreconcilable differences". According to US media reports, the 29-year-old allegedly accused the singer of cheating on him - an accusation that Spears rejected, but which is said to have ultimately led to the model's departure and the divorce that has now been filed.
Now the US portal "TMZ", which first reported on the separation of the spouses, has learned from insider sources from the couple's environment that Spears is said to have repeatedly physically attacked her estranged husband in the seven years of their relationship together.
At the beginning of this year, Asghari is said to have just slept in the marriage bed when the singer suddenly "freaked out" and allegedly attacked him. The baffled Asghari is said not to have resisted physically, but suffered a black eye from the incident.
In addition, Asghari is said to have worried that the pop star has an extensive collection of knives. Spears is said to have a fascination with the cutting tools and has them scattered throughout her home - including the bedroom. According to an unnamed source, the singer lives in fear of being attacked by unknown parties. With the knives available everywhere in the house, she wanted to protect herself against a potential attack. The marital dispute mentioned at the beginning about an alleged misstep by the 41-year-old is said to have been just the straw that finally broke the camel's back.
Spears and Asghari began dating in 2016 after meeting on the set of the "Slumber Party" music video. In September 2021, he proposed, and on June 9, 2022, their fairytale wedding took place on the grounds of Spears' mansion in Thousand Oaks, California. There were also celebrities like Madonna (65) or Paris Hilton (42).
It is the third marriage for the singer: in 2004 she was married to her childhood friend Jason Alexander (41) for 55 hours and from 2004 to 2007 to Kevin Federline (45), with whom she had her sons Sean Preston (17) and Jayden James (16) has.
