Britney Spears is coping well with her divorce from Sam Asghari, according to a close friend of the pop star. Paul Richard Soliz, who works as a housekeeper and a rumored boyfriend for Britney, spoke to Us Weekly about her current state of mind.
Britney is ‘a phenomenal woman’
Soliz, who appeared in court on Tuesday for allegedly violating probation, praised Britney as “a phenomenal woman” and “a good person”. He said that she is “doing great” despite the messy split from her husband of 14 months.
Soliz also had positive words for Asghari, calling him a “great guy”. He did not reveal any details about his relationship with Britney, but said that he was there to support her.
Britney and Sam filed for divorce last month
Britney and Sam shocked fans when they announced their divorce in August, citing “irreconcilable differences”. Asghari, a 29-year-old model and actor, asked for spousal support and payment of legal fees from Britney, who has an estimated net worth of $60 million.
The couple had been together since 2016, when they met on the set of her music video for “Slumber Party”. They tied the knot in January 2022, after Britney was freed from her 13-year conservatorship that controlled her personal and financial affairs.
Britney has been posting cryptic messages on Instagram
Since the divorce news broke, Britney has been posting concerning messages on Instagram, where she has over 34 million followers. She has also gotten some new tattoos, including one that says “I am enough” on her wrist.
Some of her posts have hinted at betrayal and lies, while others have expressed gratitude and optimism. She recently shared a video of herself dancing to “Trick Me” by Kelis, wearing a leopard print one-piece and a push-up bra. She captioned it: “I couldn’t take the pain anymore … so I said f*** it !!!”
Britney will keep four of their five dogs
One of the major decisions in the divorce has been settled: who will keep their five dogs. According to TMZ, Britney will keep four of them: Sawyer, an Australian Shepherd; Hannah, a Yorkie; and two other small dogs. Sam will get custody of Porsha, a Doberman he bought her two years ago as a protection dog.
Britney does not have any children with Sam, but she has two sons with her ex-husband Kevin Federline: Sean Preston, 17, and Jayden James, 16. They live in Hawaii with their father, who is reportedly asking for more child support from Britney.
