There Is Palpable Concern About Britney Spears’s (Possible) Prenup


Britney Spears got engaged to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari over the weekend—something she said she wished for but couldn’t do while still under her father, Jamie’s, conservatorship. “I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” Spears told a judge during an emotional hearing in June. Fittingly, the engagement came just days after Jamie Spears filed to end his daughter’s 13-year-long conservatorship in court last week—but the news was not roundly met with jubilation.

Mixed with the sense of hope that Spears would finally be free to live her life came palpable concern from fans that the pop star protect her assets with a prenuptial agreement. Among those urging caution was Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, who bluntly commented on Spears’s engagement Instagram: “Make him sign a prenup.” (The comment was liked more than 83,000 times). Another commenter, riffing on the Britney bop “Lucky,” said: “This is a story about a girl named Prenupney.”

Prenups have long been stigmatized as cold and unromantic; a sign the asking party isn’t confident the marriage will last. In reality, prenups simply add a layer of protection against contentious divorce battles over property and other assets, especially when one partner is disproportionately wealthier, as is the case with Spears and Asghari. (And anyway, if you’re so confident you’ll never break up, there should be no harm in drafting a prenup you’ll never use.) Obviously, Spears, 39, is a generational pop queen with a net worth once estimated at around $60 million, according to Forbes, but diminished by her father’s long reign of control, according to Spears’s attorney. Asghari, 27, Spears’s boyfriend of more than four years, is a personal trainer and owner of an eponymous fitness business that crafts workout and meal plans for clients. He’s also a model and actor who recently played a sexy Santa on Hacks and had a recurring role on Showtime’s Black Monday.


Yet the stigma around prenups may be fading: According to one Business Insider article, the agreements are growing more common among millennials who are getting married later and with more assets—and, particularly for children of divorce, are more clear-eyed about the realities of marriage. Asghari himself seems secure enough to laugh off the bubbling prenup talk, joking on Instagram: “Of course we’re getting an ironclad prenup to protect my Jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day.” But the passionate, visceral concern for Spears seems timely given the long battle she’s waged for freedom, financial and otherwise. Spears is worth more than her attachment to any man, even the good ones.

Spears alleges that her father’s conservatorship robbed her of agency, that her labor and earnings have been exploited, and that she hasn’t had the ability to make her own reproductive health choices; forced to keep an IUD inserted despite wanting to have a baby with Asghari. The thought that not signing a prenup could put Spears at risk of losing more of her assets, right at the moment when she seems to be be regaining control of her life, has elicited understandable concern from fans invested in her fight. People has reported that Spears is indeed seeking a prenuptial agreement, though it seemed rich that Jamie Spears himself is apparently “working on finding a lawyer to do the prenup” because “it involves finances and he’s still officially Britney’s estate conservator”—a reminder that Spears isn’t free of her father’s influence quite yet. Here’s hoping she’ll be celebrating not only her engagement but her freedom.
