Britney Spears Breaks Instagram Silence Amid Sam Asghari Divorce

Britney Spears has broken her silence on social media following news that Sam Asghari has filed for divorce amid their recent separation. While she didn’t address divorce reports, Britney hopped onto Instagram and revealed that she’s thinking about buying a horse soon, writing:

“Buying a horse soon 🐴 !!! So many options it’s kinda hard !!! A horse called Sophie and another called Roar 🐎 ??? I can’t make up my mind 🙈 !!! Should I join the camaraderie and put a pink cowboy hat on 😜 ??? Either way I think I found my sweet spot with Roar 😘 !!!”

TMZ dropped the news last night that Britney and Sam had “separated after a nuclear argument” that involved cheating allegations. Just hours later, news dropped that Sam had filed for divorce and cited “irreconcilable differences.”

According to the outlet, Sam “confronted Britney” over unverified “rumors” that she “stepped out on him,” and then moved out of their shared home after a big argument.

Unfortunately, things are reportedly getting messy behind the scenes, and a source who spoke to Page Six alleges that Sam is “attempting to negotiate concessions beyond his prenup and threatening to go public with extraordinarily embarrassing information about Britney unless he gets paid. So that’s what Sam is focused on.”

However, another insider says Britney’s team has “protected” her and that the “parting will be respectful,” noting that “It’s blackmail and it’ll never happen.”

Page Six reports that Britney has hired “lawyer to the stars” Laura Wasser to represent her.
