As you’ve likely heard by now, Sam Asghari filed for divorce from Britney Spears this week.
The unexpected split is the latest in a long line of setbacks for Spears, and understandably, fans are now deeply concerned about the pop icon’s mental health.
Just prior to the news that her marriage had come to an end, Britney’s sons moved to Hawaii with their father, Kevin Federline.
They allegedly did so without even saying goodbye.
Britney recently reconciled with her mother, but it seems their relationship soured again shortly thereafter.
According to a new report from TMZ, Spears is “estranged from her entire family,” and her only friends are paid staff members.
“She has one confidant, [her manager] Cade [Hudson],” one source tells the outlet.
“Then there’s her security team, and after that her support system falls off a cliff.”
Insiders say Brit and Sam parted ways following a blowout fight in which he accused her of cheating on him.
It seems the fight and allegation were just the final nails in the coffin, however, as Sam had reportedly been fed up with Britney’s “erratic” behavior for the past several months.
Spears and Asghari just tied the knot in June of 2022, so the marriage went downhill rather quickly.
News of the split came as quite a blow to Britney fans who had hoped that Sam was the embodiment the singer’s much-deserved happy ending.
After all, Britney has been through an awful lot in recent years.
Spears spent several years under the control of a conservatorship that was headed by her domineering father.
It was only through years of legal wrangling that she eventually able to extricate herself.
Sam stood by her side throughout that process, but now, it looks as though he’s abruptly exited Britney’s life.
Asghari cited “irreconcilable differences” in his divorce filing, and he listed the separation date as July 28.
Sam has reportedly found a new place to live, and Britney has already been spotted out and about without her wedding ring.
So, yeah — it’s really happening.
Insiders say that Asghari intends to contest the terms of the prenup he signed before the wedding, so this split has the potential to become very messy.
Fans had hoped that the divorce would go smoothly for the sake of Brit’s mental health, but that seems unlikely at this point.
And it sounds like Britney will be forced to go through the ugliness ahead with minimal support.
Her fans are always there for her, of course, but kind words from millions of online strangers might feel like very cold comfort at the moment.
