Will Sam Asghari get spousal support from Britney Spears?
According to multiple news outlets, the document filed on Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court said that Sam will seek spousal support from his estranged wife.
It also said he is requesting that Britney pays for his attorneys' fees.
However, Asghari’s manager, Brandon Cohen, denied reports that the model was seeking to challenge the couple’s prenuptial agreement.
“There are many claims that Sam is challenging the prenup and threatening to exploit his ex-wife with videos,” he said, “However, all these claims are false, as no negative intention has ever been directed towards her and never will be. Sam has always and will always support her.”
How much money will Sam Asghari get from Britney Spears divorce?
It was previously reported by UsWeekly that Britney, 41, and Sam, 29, had signed an ironclad prenup that would tightly guard her $60 million (£47 million) fortune, meaning he wouldn’t be entitled to receive a penny of any money she made before their marriage.
It stated that Sam was to receive “$1 million per every two years” of their marriage, with a cap at $10 million after 15 years, according to a source, but as they got married in June 2022, he wouldn't receive the $1 million, as per these terms.
However, it's currently unclear whether the prenup states that Sam is entitled to any money Britney made after they got married, which would include her recent $15 million (£11.7 million) deal with publishing house Simon & Schuster for a tell-all memoir titled 'The Woman In Me', as well as newly released music.
What was included in Britney Spears and Sam Asghari’s prenup?
Britney and Sam’s prenup was put in place to protect the singer’s fortune before they wed, which is said to be an estimated $60 million.
Sam is also said to not have any claims to Britney’s music catalog and his name isn’t on the deed of their shared home.
