Sam Asghari has released a statement on social media after filing for divorce from Britney Spears.
The two only got married in June last year and had been dating for five years prior to their big day.
However, it appears they want to go their separate ways.
The Iranian-American fitness model and actor has lodged an application to split from his pop star wife.
He has cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for breaking up.
There had been some rumblings that the two weren't doing too well in the last few months and TMZ claims they recently had a 'nuclear argument' that sparked the divorce.
It's alleged Sam confronted Britney with allegations of infidelity, however the nature of those rumors haven't been revealed or confirmed.
Asghari has now posted a statement on his Instagram that confirms they are breaking up.
"After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end out journey together," he said.
"We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.
"Asking for privacy seems rediculous [sic] so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful."
Sam Asghari is reportedly threatening to release ‘extraordinarily embarrassing’ information about his estranged wife if their prenup is not renegotiated.
A source has told Page Six that Asghari wants the 'Gimme More' singer pay more than what they agreed in their prenup agreement 'in order to keep her secrets'.
In the lead up to their star-studded wedding last summer, Spears and Asghari signed a prenup agreement that Page Six revealed was in 'favor' of the singer.
The source claimed: “Any money she made before the wedding is protected."
Spears’ attorney Mathew Rosengart, who helped terminate spears from conservatorship allegedly helped work out her 'ironclad' premarital agreement.
