Following news of her divorce from her husband, Sam Asghari, Britney Spears returned to social media with a cryptic message. The pop star shared an Instagram post about her plans to buy a horse and difficulty choosing its name. The message comes shortly after reports emerged that she and Sam Asghari are ending their marriage after approximately 14 months. The split marks Britney’s third divorce.
The Instagram Post
In her Instagram post, Britney mentioned her intention to buy a horse and sought suggestions for its name. She mentioned two possible names, “Sophie” and “Roar,” and expressed her indecision. She also playfully wondered whether she should wear a pink cowboy hat. The post accompanied a photo of Britney riding a horse on the beach.
While neither Britney Spears nor Sam Asghari immediately provided details about their split, a source confirmed their separation, stating that it was in the best interest of Britney. Sam Asghari filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their breakup and listing the date of separation as July 28, 2023.
Background of Relationship
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari met in 2016 on her “Slumber Party” music video set. Their relationship quickly progressed, leading to an engagement in September 2021 and their marriage in June 2022. Their wedding was attended by notable celebrities, including Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Madonna, and Donatella Versace.
The couple had faced breakup rumors earlier when both were seen without their wedding rings. Sam’s representative clarified that the absence of the ring was due to a work-related shoot, dispelling the speculation at that time.
Conservatorship and Relationship
Britney’s engagement with Sam was seen as a positive step as she aimed to gain more control over her life following the termination of her conservatorship in November 2021. The conservatorship had limited her personal and financial decisions for 13 years. Sam had been vocal in supporting Britney’s freedom and the end of the conservatorship.
Britney Spears’ return to social media with a cryptic message about buying a horse and her plans amid the divorce news has captured public attention. While the details of her split from Sam Asghari remain private, her post suggests she is focusing on new endeavors. The couple’s relationship journey and Britney’s ongoing efforts for personal and legal autonomy continue to interest fans and the media.
