Britney Spears shows off huge new snake tattoo amid Sam Asghari divorce

The 'Toxic' singer debuted a new tattoo amidst separation from husband Sam Asghari

Britney Spears has revealed a new addition to her body amid her split from Sam Asghari.

The pair had been together for six years, tying the knot in a star-studded wedding last year.

Held at the California home, Asghari, 29, married Britney, 41, with A-listers such as Drew Barrymore, Madonna and Selena Gomez in attendance.

However, earlier in August this year, it was reported the Iranian-American model had filed for divorce from the Princess of Pop.

Asghari reportedly cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ for the split and told his Instagram followers that ‘after six years of love and commitment to each other' he and Britney 'have decided to end our journey together'.

And while there’s been all kinds of drama since from Asghari’s ‘jokes’ to sister Jamie Lynn Spears' ‘subtle reaction’, Britney looks to be living her best life online.

Social media posts from recent days alone show her riding horses topless in the desert and getting tattoos.

Britney got a tattoo of a snake.

The ‘Oops!... I Did it Again’ singer revealed a large, red snake on her lower back in an Instagram video.

Captioned simply with a snake emoji, Britney can be seen dancing in the video as she says: “My new snake tattoo guys! I’m so excited.”

She then shows footage of the tattoo being done at a home, while she wears white mini shorts and a yellow crop top.

Britney poses for the camera as she sits backwards on the chair and tells her followers: “It doesn’t hurt that bad, actually.”

The new addition to her back seems to be a red outline of the animal near her spine.

It sits just above her other lower back tattoo, of a fairy.

The snake could represent a number of things. Snake tattoos often symbolize power and strength, rebirth and healing and Japanese snake tattoos are often a symbol of protection against illness or bad luck.

Of course, however, snakes can also be regarded as untrustworthy or sly. So there’s a chance it could be a jab at her ex Asghari.

In another recent Instagram video, Britney wrote to her fans: “Just so you girls know!!! You are not defined by your phone or rectangle in your hands!!!

“It’s always good to stop and LOOK AROUND to see what’s going on around you!!! And there’s always therapy!!!”

Previously breaking her silence on the split, Britney wrote: “You’re supposed to be loved unconditionally … not under conditions !!!! So I will be as strong as I can and do my best !!! And I’m actually doing pretty damn good !!! Anyways have a good day and don’t forget to smile !!!"
