Just a year after tying the knot in a lavish LA ceremony, Sam Asghari has taken to social media to confirm his split from pop icon Britney Spears, signaling the end of their whirlwind romance.

Soon after news of the split broke, Asghari filed for divorce, with a source telling ET: "Britney and Sam have split. She's adamant she didn't cheat. The two haven't got along for a while and it finally came to an end after a major blowup."

VT provides an inside look into their split, Asghari's candid appeal to the media, and what's next for Spears.

In an intimate statement posted on his Instagram story, Asghari shared, "After six 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. S*** happens. Asking for privacy seems ridiculous so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful."

The cited reason for the divorce, as per the Los Angeles court documents, remains "irreconcilable differences." Interestingly, they suggest the couple had quietly parted ways almost three weeks prior to the formal announcement.

Fans are abuzz about the financial ramifications of the split. The documents indicate Asghari's intent to seek financial support from Spears and potentially have her cover his legal fees. With the couple's individual and joint assets still under assessment, the financial outcome remains a point of curiosity.

Amid the divorce storm, Spears seems to be looking towards the horizon, hinting on Instagram about "buying a horse soon."

For those needing a recap, this power couple first caught each other's eye on the 'Slumber Party' music video set back in 2016, and their engagement was the talk of the town in September 2021.

Their 2022 wedding was nothing short of a Hollywood spectacle, graced by the likes of Madonna, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, and Paris Hilton. It marked Spears' third walk down the aisle; her earlier marriages include a notably brief one with Jason Alexander (annulled after 55 hours) and with Kevin Federline, the father of her two sons, Sean and Jayden.

It's worth noting that Alexander made headlines last year when he was charged with misdemeanours after allegedly attempting to "crash" Spears' wedding to Asghari.
