Britney Spears and Sam Asghari Finalizehusband, divorceAfter 14-Month Marriage

Britney Spears, 42, and her estrangeddivorcehusband Sam Asghari, 30, have settled their divorce, bringing their 14-month marriage to a close. The former couple is now awaiting a judge's signature on the completed divorce paperwork filed by Spears' attorney, Laura Wasser. The settlement comes eight months after Asghari filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences" that led to the split.

Central to the divorce proceedings is the prenuptial agreement signed by Spears and Asghari before their June 2022 wedding. The prenup protects Spears' reported $60 million fortune, ensuring that she retains her jewelry, personal items, and earnings made before, during, and after their marriage. Asghari has decided not to contest the prenup, with a source telling The New York Post's Page Six column: "He admitted publicly he is not fighting [their prenup agreement]. This will be resolved quietly and professionally and soon. That's it."

The couple's SETTLES, divorce, husband, nine, month, legal, sep comes on the heels of Spears' legal battle with her father, Jamie Spears, over her conservatorship. Britney had to pay her father $2 million in legal bills, in addition to the $4 million she reportedly spent on her own lawyer. Despite not being awarded anything in the settlement over the conservatorship, an insider told DailyMail.com that Britney is not in serious danger of going broke, stating, "She did what was in her best interests to be done with him forever, and she couldn't be happier."

Spears and Asghari tied the knot on June 9, 2022, at a star-studded ceremony inside her former Thousand Oaks mansion. Less than a month before their wedding, the couple suffered a miscarriage and had planned to continue trying to expand their family, which in the end did not happen. The last public sighting of Spears and Asghari together was on July 24, 2023.

As part of the divorce settlement, Spears and Asghari have also reached a custody agreement concerning their five dogs. Asghari will gain sole ownership of their doberman, Porsha, while Spears will receive full custody of the other four dogs. The couple did not have any children together during their brief marriage.

Following the settlement of her divorce and legal battle with her father, Spears has temporarily shut off her Instagram account to take a break and spend time with friends. In April, she wrote on Instagram, "If you know me, you know how I love. I love too much. It's embarrassing, and I will love you for life. That's a trait I want to try and keep..."

Spears' memoir, "The Woman In Me," released last year, has been a source of income for the pop star, with Spears pulling in 25% of the net profits. A source close to Spears addressed her current financial situation, saying, "Britney is continuing to turn the page—the stories of her going broke are ridiculous and demonstrably false."

With the prenuptial agreement in place and custody of their dogs settled, both Spears and Asghari appear to be moving forward amicably as their 14-month marriage comes to an end. The settlement of their divorce marks the conclusion of a tumultuous chapter in Spears' life, allowing her to focus on her personal well-being and continue rebuilding her life post-conservatorship.
