Britney Spears and Sam Asghari reach divorce settlement

Pop icon Britney Spears has reached a divorce settlement with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Sam Asghari, just days after settling with her father in court. The agreement for dividing their assets was filed in a Los Angeles court on Thursday, nine months after the couple separated.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed in detail, but it was noted that neither Spears nor Asghari will receive future spousal support. Any future disputes between the two will need to be settled in private arbitration. As they had no children together, no custody agreement was necessary.

Spears, 42, and Asghari, 30, married in June 2022 after seven years of dating, but ultimately separated in July and Asghari filed for divorce in August. The couple's marriage was seen as a significant moment in Spears' life following her highly publicized legal battle to end the conservatorship that had controlled her life for over a decade.

While Spears did mention in her memoir that she and Asghari had experienced a miscarriage before they married, the filing of the divorce settlement indicates that the couple has come to an amicable agreement regarding their separation.

With the judge likely to sign off on the settlement soon, both Spears and Asghari will soon be declared single. Requests for comments from their lawyers were not immediately returned. The resolution of these legal matters marks a new chapter for Spears as she continues to rebuild her life post-conservatorship.
