Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Pop music icon Britney Spears and her husband, model Sam Asghari, are divorcing after 14 months of marriage, according to multiple media outlets.

TMZ broke the news Wednesday, stating Asghari, 29, moved out of the marital home after becoming frustrated with 41-year-old Spears' erratic behavior and accusing her of cheating on him.

Advertisement also confirmed the separation with numerous unnamed sources, stating Asghari filed for divorce Wednesday.

"They're separated and it's best for Britney," NBC News cited one unnamed insider as saying.

E! News said their representatives have not responded to requests for comment.

Spears met Asghari in 2016 on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video and exchanged wedding vows in June 2022.
