After seven years of dating, Britney Spears and her husband Sam Asghari have separated, according to TMZ. The reason for their separation reportedly stemmed from a huge argument over allegations of cheating, which had surfaced only a week prior.
Sources close to the couple told that Asghari accused Spears of being unfaithful, although it is unclear if the allegation was grounded in truth. The intense fight that ensued caused Asghari to move out of their shared home, and into his own place.
This sudden and unexpected development has come as a shock to many fans of the pop star. Ending one year of marriage, the couple was known for their stable long-term relationship and loving publicly-displayed affection. Now, as rumors swirl about the pair’s split, it has become evident that all may not be as it seems in paradise.
According to a source, it might only be a matter of time before Spears files for divorce. While neither party has commented on the reports yet, the singers’ recent posts on social media suggest that the couple’s split may be imminent.
Spears’ last Instagrams have been focused mainly on fashion and dancing, while Asghari recently posted about his mother’s recovery from an accident and announced that he would be taking a break from social media.
“I’m so grateful for the love and support you guys have shown during Mama Asghari’s recovery after the accident,” he shared. “Sending a huge thank you to the amazing medical staff at Cedars-Sinai ER. Moments like these remind us of life’s preciousness. Taking a social media break to prioritize what truly matters – see you very soon.”
In addition to their activity on social media, TMZ has reported that Spears has a prenup that will protect her assets should the couple decide to go through with their reported split. Sources have also claimed that Asghari felt as if he was “at his wits’ end” due to Spears’ behavior at times, leading him to reach his breaking point. With this news coming to light now, many fans are eagerly awaiting confirmation from either party about their reported split or lack thereof.
