Britney Spears and Sam Asghari’s Relationship Timeline Is Full of Ups and Downs Amid Divorce

Britney Spears and her husband, Sam Asghari, have been linked since late 2016, made things Instagram official in January 2017 and progressed in their relationship for the years to follow. He stayed by the singer’s side through her conservatorship battle, and the pair got married in June 2022.

In Touch confirmed they split and were planning to divorce more than one year later.

“Britney wants out of her marriage. A divorce is in the works,” a source exclusively told In Touch on August 16, 2023. “Even though she’s pushed Sam to the brink with her erratic behavior, he would probably keep enduring it, but she’s adamant.”

Before their separation, the model said he and Britney really hit it off right from the start. The duo met in October 2016 on the set of her music video “Slumber Party.”

Sam said of the experience, “A good friend of mine was working on the music video at the time. They told the casting director, ‘You should cast this guy,’ and then they sent my pictures to my [future] girlfriend and she picked it. She said, ‘I want this guy.’ And that’s how it was.” 

“At the music video, we connected, we talked,” the personal trainer added. “We talked about, ‘What do you like to eat? Sushi.’ … And then [exchanged] text messages and, next thing you know, a date. Just like a normal couple.”

A source told In Touch exclusively in August 2021 that Britney is “really optimistic” about her future with Sam and “has put together a beautiful vision board of her dream wedding and future plans.”

“She got creative and cut out images from magazines and is using photographs and drawings,” the insider added before he officially popped the question. “She adds to the vision board most days.”

Fast forward one year and  Sam finally popped the question. “I can’t f–king believe it!!!!!!” Britney wrote via Instagram alongside a video showing off her dazzling new diamond ring on September 12, 2021.

They got married less than one year later in a magical backyard wedding with celebrity guests Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez and Madonna.
