In November it was reported that she and Asghari had a ‘friendly’ relationship and she pays him around $10,000 a month to live in a high-rise apartment in Los Angeles.
Britney used prominent divorce attorney Laura Wasserman to handle her side of the divorce settlement.
In the early stages of negotiations, both exes were said to no longer speak to each other, and instead communicated only through their lawyers.
It was originally reported that Sam planned to challenge the prenuptial agreement he and Britney signed, even though Wasserman was known for her rock-solid prenuptial agreements.
The Black Monday actor is said to be considering speaking out about his experiences while married to the Toxic singer, although the current state of negotiations seems to have softened him.
The two filed for divorce in August, citing irreconcilable differences.
While they’re not at each other’s throats right now, it’s unclear how much communication is going on between Britney and Sam, or how much of a support he can be to her going forward.

After cutting off contact early in their divorce process, sources close to Britney were concerned that it could have a detrimental effect on her mental health, as she had cut off most of her family members and Sam had previously been her biggest support.
Spears previously gushed about her ex in her 2023 memoir, The Woman in Me.
‘I have an appreciation for how stable he is. I love that he doesn’t even drink,’ she wrote of Asghari, who she met in October 2016 while shooting the music video for her hit track, Slumber Party.’
The mother-of-two also tells readers that she ‘knows’ she wants him in her life ‘immediately’.
‘The chemistry with us at the beginning was insane. We couldn’t keep our hands off each other,” she recalls.
Moreover, she called him “a gift from God.”
