Britney Spears’ third marriage ends with her divorce from Sam Asghari

Britney and Sam got married last year at the former’s home in Thousand Oaks, California. The event was intimate but star-studded, with celebrities including Paris Hilton, Madonna and Drew Barrymore in attendance. With Britney’s divorce from Sam, her third marriage ends.

Britney married her childhood friend Jason Alexander for 55 hours in Las Vegas in 2004 before it was annulled. Jason tried crashing Britney’s wedding with Sam, and was previously also seen participating in the pro-Trump riot at the US Capitol in Washington DC in January 2021. He was subsequently charged with trespassing, vandalism and two counts of battery.

Britney then married rapper Kevin Federline, and their marriage lasted from 2004 to 2007. Kevin and Britney share two children, Jayden James and Sean Preston, who are under the sole custody of Kevin.

Britney is now preparing to publish her memoir, ‘The Woman in Me,’ in October. The website britneybook.com says of the memoir, “The Woman in Me is a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope.”
