It’s courtroom chaos in Britney Spears’ world as her estranged husband, Sam Asghari, was nowhere to be found during a critical court hearing this week, and now, their divorce hangs by a thread.

According to the exclusive court documents that got its hands on, a November 15 hearing was set to address the stalemate in their divorce proceedings. Britney, who’s been through quite a rollercoaster, expressed her “shock” over the split.

Back in October, the Los Angeles Superior Court judge in charge of the case warned Sam that if he didn’t get his act together, which included serving Britney with the necessary legal paperwork, the divorce would get the boot.

Fast forward to this week, the hearing took place, but guess who was MIA? That’s right, Sam! The court minutes tell the tale: “Petitioner failed to appear. Matter is placed off the calendar.” The judge, keeping us all on the edge of our seats, hasn’t spilled the beans on whether Sam will get another shot at this.


As previously reported, Sam filed for divorce from Britney back in August, and since then, the two haven’t been spotted together. In his divorce filing, Sam marked the separation date as July 28, 2023, while they tied the knot on June 9, 2022.

Insiders have spilled the tea that Britney and Sam had an “ironclad” prenup safeguarding the pop star’s fortune. So, while Sam might get a hefty lump sum, it looks like he won’t be cashing in on ongoing support.

According to the prenup terms, Sam will walk away with any cars in his possession and any gifts he received during their seven-year journey.

In her upcoming memoir, Britney showers Sam with praise for being her rock during trying times with her family. But in the courtroom saga, it seems Sam isn’t moving things along, leaving the divorce proceedings in a state of suspense.

Britney and Sam’s last public appearance together was back in 2022. They met on the set of a music video in 2016, and Britney couldn’t help but gush, “We couldn’t keep our hands off each other.” She even called him a “gift from god.”

When asked about Britney’s shoutout, Sam voiced his pride and added, “I hope she takes over the world.” But in the real world of legal battles, Sam seems to be dropping the ball, failing to serve Britney properly.

As for Britney, she took to Instagram to share her feelings about the split, making it clear that while she’s no longer with Sam, the reasons behind it are her own business. Drama, drama, drama!

What do you think might be the reasons behind Sam Asghari’s absence from the critical court hearing regarding his divorce from Britney Spears? How do you think this will impact their ongoing legal proceedings? Leave us a comment.
