Sam Asghari is speaking out one day after filing for divorce from Britney Spears.

“After 6 years if love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together,” Asghari, 29, wrote via an Instagram Story statement on Thursday, August 17. “We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.”

Asghari — who wed Spears, 41, in June 2022 — noted in his statement, “S—t happens,” before concluding with a message to the public. “Asking for privacy seems rediculous [sic] so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful,” he wrote.

According to a new report by the outlet, Sam reportedly told friends that the Toxic singer would attack him during their seven years together.
