Sam Asghari Is Divorcing Britney Spears For a Reason Related to Her Conservatorship

Sam Asghari who was once one of Britney Spears’s biggest supporters in regards to her conservatorship ending, a new report suggests changed his tune somewhere along the way — and is now divorcing the pop star because of her newfound freedom.

According to Entertainment Tonight, a source told the outlet, “Britney could be argumentative at times, but also felt like Sam didn’t let her do a lot of things without him.” They continued, “Before Britney’s conservatorship ended, Sam was very supportive. Once it ended, Britney felt very free, but that eventually changed based on certain dynamics in her relationship with Sam.”

“Britney felt like things shifted in her relationship with Sam once her conservatorship ended. Before it ended, Britney was more in a set routine, but once she was free, a lot changed.” They added, “Britney wanted to embrace her freedom and felt like Sam couldn’t necessarily handle that. Britney will never let another person control her, and she felt like that was starting to happen again.”

While Spears was battling her father Jamie Spears in court to have the conservatorship ended in 2021, another source told ET, “[Asghari] feels like Jamie is far too controlling and adds a layer of trouble to [Asghari and Britney’s] relationship. In Sam’s eyes, there are far too many restrictions.”

The “Circus” singer’s conservatorship was officially dissolved on November 12, 2021, and Spears and Asghari married a few months later on June 9, 2022. A little over a year later, Asghari filed for divorce on August 16, 2022.

In a statement shared on his Instagram, the actor wrote, “After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together. We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.”
