It's a tumultuous time for pop icon Britney Spears and her soon-to-be ex-husband Sam Asghari as they navigate through a complex divorce after just 14 months of marital union. Even as tension looms, Asghari remains a pillar of support for Spears, albeit silently, as personal communications between the duo have reportedly halted.
In a recent display of solidarity, the 29-year-old Iranian-American model, Asghari, took a bold step by addressing Donald Trump Jr. directly on his Instagram Story. This was in response to the latter's attempt at humor, seemingly at the expense of Spears. “Bullying is unacceptable,” Asghari boldly stated on his platform, clearly highlighting his unwavering allegiance to the 'Toxic' singer.
Controversial Trump Jr. Post
Donald Trump Jr. had earlier posted a juxtaposed image of Spears. The image on the left portrayed a youthful Spears and was captioned "America under Trump." In stark contrast, the right-side image showed a capture from one of Spears' recent knife dance videos, creating an underhanded insinuation.
The said knife dance videos previously raised eyebrows and triggered concerns amongst fans and acquaintances alike. Some were alarmed to the extent of seeking a wellness check for the singer. However, Spears later clarified that the knives featured in her video were mere props and not real.
Amidst the circulating rumors, Asghari made it a point to debunk claims by TMZ a few months ago, which suggested that their marriage was on rocky grounds. Taking to Instagram, Asghari expressed his disappointment: “It's reprehensible how some, who were silent when she was voiceless, now tell her story as if it's their own.”
The romance between Spears and Asghari blossomed over a period of five years before they exchanged wedding vows in June of the previous year. But by August, Asghari had initiated divorce proceedings. Page Six highlights that the estranged couple has since limited their interactions, choosing to communicate solely through their legal representatives.
