Britney Spears Has Not Seen Sam Asghari in Months

The once-thriving marriage between Britney Spears and Sam Asghari took a stark turn as it was revealed that the couple had been living separate lives for several months prior to their divorce filing. Sam, the 29-year-old actor turned personal trainer, officially submitted the divorce petition on August 16, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Sources close to the situation disclosed to Page Six that during periods when Sam was away filming, he and Britney, the 41-year-old ‘Toxic’ singer, had been “living separately.” This revelation helps explain the seeming absence of Sam from Britney’s numerous Instagram videos during what appeared to be their shared time together.
Insiders suggest that Britney had desired a fairytale relationship, which she felt was not fully realized with Sam. Her sense of letdown was compounded by a perceived lack of unconditional love from him. A source commented, “Of course she feels let down… anyone would when your partner is not providing for you in the way you feel you need to be provided for. But he was not super present… he would just disappear for months to go filming and she would be left all alone.”
Amid speculation surrounding the split, reports indicated that Sam chose to file for divorce after just 14 months of marriage, potentially forfeiting a substantial payout according to their prenuptial agreement. The agreement stipulated a $1 million payout for Sam only for every two years of marriage.
Signs of trouble had emerged earlier, as both Sam and Britney were seen without their wedding rings in paparazzi photos. Sam’s representative explained that he had removed his ring due to “filming a movie,” attempting to dismiss rumors of any marital discord. Britney, too, had been spotted without her ring during a solo holiday, sparking speculation about the state of their relationship.
The revelation of their separation preceding the divorce filing sheds new light on the complexities of their relationship, bringing into focus the challenges they faced as individuals pursuing their own endeavors.
