Britney Spears’s husband is seeking financial support from the singer while trying to block her from getting any from him, after he filed for divorce.
Sam Asghari, 29, and Spears, 41, have been married for just over a year.
In his divorce filing to Los Angeles County Court, Asghari says the pair separated nearly three weeks ago and cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
The document lists the couple’s separation date as 28 July, though reports of the split did not emerge until Wednesday.
It says he will try to get financial support from her – while blocking her from getting any from him.
Asghari is also trying to get the singer to pay for his divorce lawyers, according to the filings.
The filing says the value of Spears and Asghari’s assets, and those they own jointly, has yet to be determined.
The couple married at a star-studded ceremony at the US star’s home in Los Angeles in June 2022.

They originally met on the set of the Slumber Party music video in 2016, and became engaged in September 2021 as her controversial conservatorship – the legal arrangement that controlled her life and finances – looked to be coming to an end.
Spears posted a photo of herself on Instagram riding a horse on the beach on Wednesday, after several US outlets reported the relationship was ending.
In her Instagram post, the Toxic singer wrote: “Buying a horse soon! So many options it’s kinda hard!
“I can’t make up my mind. Should I join the camaraderie and put a pink cowboy hat on?”
