Sam Asghari has broken his silence following his split from Britney Spears. The 29-year-old actor spoke out for the first time on Thursday, one day after filing for divorce from the music superstar, issuing a statement on his Instagram story. “After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together. We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always,” he began. He went on to speak more candidly acknowledging the public attention surrounding the news. “S**t happens. Asking for privacy seems rediculous [sic] so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful,” he added. Sam filed for divorce on Wednesday, according to court documents obtained by Access Hollywood. Per the docs, he listed his and Britney’s separation date as July 28 and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.
