For the past few days, rumors about Britney Spears and Sam Asghari’s troubled marriage have been doing the rounds on social media. The two celebs have now added fuel to the fire by ditching their wedding rings.
Spears, who is currently on vacation in Mexico without her husband, was seen not wearing her diamond wedding ring as she was snapped outside an airport on Tuesday. Two days later, Asghari was also spotted without his wedding band in Los Angeles. Read on to know more about the development.
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari Seen Without Wedding Rings Amid Separation Rumors
Spears, 41, is on a trip to Mexico with her longtime manager and friend, Cade Hudson. The pop star arrived at LAX airport on Tuesday, March 28, and was photographed by the media while getting into an SUV with a teddy bear to travel to Cabo. At the time, a wedding ring was nowhere to be seen on her hand.
The Womanizer singer also ditched the ring in several of her Instagram posts. On March 30, her husband, Sam Asghari, who is in Los Angeles, was also photographed not sporting his ring as well. The Iranian-American model and fitness trainer was leaving a Thousand Oaks gym in a black t-shirt and camo pants when he was captured by the cameras.
Insider Reveals the Relationship Status of the Couple
A source close to the couple has now revealed that, contrary to the reports, they are very much together, and there are no issues in their marital life. A rep for Asghari has also stated that he was not wearing the ring as he was shooting for an upcoming film.
The 29 year old also posted a selfie on his Instagram Story on Thursday, which featured him sitting in a plane with the wedding ring visible on his finger. The photo is said to be the actor’s response to the rumors of his separation. Meanwhile, Spears’ reps have not yet commented on the reports.
Spears and Asghari Got Married in June 2022
The couple met on the sets of Spears’ music video Slumber Party in 2016 and began dating shortly after. They got engaged in September 2021 and tied the knot in June 2022. Ever since, the couple has had to shoot down reports of their separation multiple times.
In December last year, Asghari denied the accusations that he had been controlling his wife. “No, I don’t even control what we have for dinner. You know, in the past, there has been a lot of stuff going on, so I understand where [fans are] coming from. They’re just being protective. If anything, they’re being good fans,” he said at the time.
Last month, he once again spoke about his wife, revealing that she was in ‘full control’ of her life when reports emerged that her friends were planning an intervention for the singer. “My wife is in full control of her life and will continue to make all decisions involving her care regardless of circumstances,” he stated.
Spears, who was in conservatorship from 2008 to 2021, was married twice before finding love with Sam Asghari. Her marriage with childhood friend Jason Alexander lasted less than a year in 2004, after which she tied the knot with dancer Kevin Federline before divorcing him in 2007. The former couple shares two sons, Sean, 17, and Jayden, 16.
