Sam Asghari threatening to release ‘extraordinarily embarrassing’ Britney Spears info if
He’s pleading, “Gimme more.”
Sam Asghari allegedly wants his estranged wife, pop superstar Britney Spears, 41, to pay him more than what their prenup provides in return for keeping 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 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 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 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.”

The “Crossroads” actress previously paid $20,000 a month in child support, but the former backup dancer demanded an increase to $60,000 a month in May 2018.
Federline, 45, moved his and Britney’s sons to Hawaii earlier this month, which many believed was an attempt to extend child support payments.
Hawaiian law allows payments to continue until age 23 if the kids attend an accredited college, university, vocational or trade school full-time.
The father of six, who was married to the “Circus” singer from 2004 to 2007, denied the claims in June, telling a paparazzo at the time, “A lot of people say a lot of stupid things.”
Now it appears that Asghari is the latest to try to come after Britney’s fortune amid their split: Page Six can confirm that the couple is headed for divorce.
Sources told TMZ earlier Wednesday that Asghari called it quits after he allegedly found out that Britney had cheated on him, noting it was “only a matter of time” before he filed.
The victim narrative, however, paints a much different story than our source’s claims.
