He’s pleading “gimme more.”
Sam Asghari allegedly wants his estranged wife, pop superstar Britney Spears, to pay him more than what their prenup provides in order to keep her secrets following their split, Page Six has exclusively learned.
A source tells us exclusively Wednesday that the “Family Business” actor, 29, is “attempting to negotiate concessions beyond his prenup and threatening to go public with extraordinarily embarrassing information about Britney unless he gets paid.”
The insider sniffs, “So that’s what Sam is focused on.”
It is unclear how much money Asghari, 29, wants or whether the current prenup permits disclosures of negative information. Reps for both did not immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.
However, a separate source adds that Spears’ team has “protected” the “Piece of Me” singer and that “parting will be respectful.”
“It’s blackmail and it’ll never happen,” the insider also tells Page Six.
Spears and Asghari tied the knot in a star-studded wedding at the “Toxic” singer’s home in California in June 2022.
Leading up to the big day, Spears and Asghari signed a prenuptial agreement that Page Six was told at the time was in the Grammy winner’s “favor.”
“Any money she made before the wedding is protected,” our source said.
Spears’ attorney Mathew Rosengart, who helped free the “Overprotected” singer from her 13-year conservatorship in November 2021, was involved in working out the terms of the prenuptial agreement.
After Asghari proposed to Spears, 41, with a custom ring in September 2021, the former federal prosecutor ensured that same month that Jamie Spears, his client’s father and former conservator, did not impede on the prenup’s terms.
Rosengart noted in court papers obtained by Page Six at the time that a prenup would typically require communication with the conservator of an estate — who was Jamie, now 71.
However, the high-powered lawyer argued that given that Britney’s relationship with her dad was “broken,” Jamie’s continued involvement would “impede the ability to negotiate and consummate a contract that all can agree is in Ms. Spears’s best interests.”
Those issues were ultimately resolved as Jamie was suspended within days of the filing and the “Oops! … I Did It Again” singer’s conservatorship was terminated less than two months later.
Britney reportedly has a net worth of $70 million, much of which has been spent on legal fees and child support for her two kids with Kevin Federline: Sean Preston, 17 and Jayden, 16.
