- It’s thought that the prenup features an ‘extensive confidentiality clause’ that prohibits Sam from discussing his relationship with Britney
American singer, Britney Spears has been forced to shell out $10,000 a month on her estranged husband Sam Asghari’s new apartment.
The singer, 41, split from the actor, 29, earlier this month after just a year of marriage, with sources claiming he’s unlikely to receive much from their union due to an iron-clad prenuptial agreement.
Spears is still footing apartment’s bill
Now, it’s claimed that despite his decision to file for divorce, Britney is footing the bill for Sam’s new apartment, which is one of the most high-end new buildings in LA.
A standard unit in the building is $10,000 per month, but according to TMZ, Sam has organised a better deal.
It’s thought that Britney’s team suggested the gesture as they navigate divorce proceedings.
Sam reportedly misses out on any money in the event of a divorce, as he and Britney were only married for 14 months, and their iron-clad prenuptial agreement stated he would get $1 million for every two years that they were married.
However, sources previously told TMZ that while the prenup prevents Sam from receiving any spousal support, he could receive a one-off cheque from Britney to prevent him from sharing any ’embarrassing information’ about their marriage.
It’s thought that the prenup features an ‘extensive confidentiality clause’ that prohibits Sam from discussing his relationship with Britney.
Sam was reportedly planning to contest the prenup by requesting spousal support and attorney’s fees, though he has denied this.
He also allegedly waived any claims to Britney’s music collection, and his name is not listed on the deeds of their shared home in Thousand Oaks, California.
The couple splashed out $11.8 million on the property, though a vast chunk of that came from Britney’s fortune.
According to the prenup, Britney and Sam agreed to put the house into a limited liability company or LLC in the event of a divorce.
It’s claimed that Britney and Sam’s lawyers will negotiate, and it’s likely that the singer will write a one-off cheque for several hundred thousand dollars to keep the confidentiality clause in place.
If Sam were the violate the agreement, he would have to return the money. Sam had denied claims he’s planning to contest his $10 million prenuptial agreement with Britney.
His representative Brandon Cohen told THR: ‘There are many claims that Sam is challenging the prenup and threatening to exploit his ex-wife with videos.
‘However, all these claims are false, and no negative intention has ever been directed towards her and never will be. Sam has always and will always support her.’
Sam broke his silence on the divorce last Friday by sharing an emotional statement to his Instagram.
‘After six years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together,’ the hunky actor wrote.
