Britney Spears and Sam Asghari split over the summer

The couple split over the summer after just over a year of marriage, and though there was a lot of tension between them for a while, the pair are said to have now resolved their differences and their relationship is amicable once again.

Sources told TMZ the fitness trainer is currently living in a Los Angeles apartment, which Britney is paying $10,000 a month for, and the 'Toxic' hitmaker is preparing to hand over a "low six-figure" sum to settle their split, with speculation Sam's lawyer was set to contest their pre-nuptial agreement failing to come to fruition.

The 'Baby One More Time' hitmaker - who was initially married to childhood friend Jason Alexander for a period of 55 hours in early 2004 but went on to have sons Sean, 18, and 17-year-old Jayden with second husband Kevin Federline - met Sam on the set of her 2016 music video 'Slumber Party' and the pair dated for just under six years.

But when they split over the summer, Britney admitted that she was "shocked" that her marriage had suddenly come to an end.

She wrote on Instagram: "As everyone knows, Hesam and I are no longer together … 6 years is a long time to be with someone so, I’m a little shocked but … I’m not here to explain why because its honestly nobody’s business."

Sam recently shared his pride in Britney following the success of her memoir, 'The Woman In Me'.

He told TMZ: "I already read it. I'm very proud of her. She put a lot of work into it, and it was very hard. I'm definitely excited and I'm extremely proud of her. It was a really tough one ... I'll be the first one in line to buy it."

Earlier this year, an insider explained that Sam was "thrilled" that his estranged wife had finally had the chance to put her story on paper and felt it will be an opportunity for her to address things she has been unable to do until now.

A source told 'Entertainment Tonight': Sam is thrilled that Britney finally has the opportunity and freedom to speak her truth with her book. He sees it as an opportunity for Britney to open up about what she has felt the need to address for far too long without being silenced or filtered."
