The couple have been married for 14 months.

A divorce petition filed on Wednesday and seen by BBC News cited "irreconcilable differences" between Asghari, 29, and Spears, 41.

The couple were engaged in 2021.

They decided to marry in a small but star-studded ceremony in June 2022.

On his Instagram page, Asghari wrote: "After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together."

"We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always," he said.

"Asking for privacy seems rediculous so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful," he wrote on Instagram.

Britney's last Instagram post did not mention anything on the issue.

Instead, the singer said she was planning to buy a 'horse'.
