SAM Asghari is reportedly demanding a huge payout from Britney Spears despite their prenup.
The actor is allegedly threatening to spill the 41-year-old's "deep, dark secrets" after filing for divorce on Wednesday.
In his filing, Sam, 29, cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce and listed the separation date as July 28, 2023, according to TMZ.
The outlet reported that he's seeking spousal support and lawyer's fees.
Additionally, his lawyer, Neal Hersh, has suggested that Sam may contest his and Britney's current prenup.
However, the singer has aligned herself with a dream team of celebrity lawyers, according to Variety.
The document maintains Britney's assets as separate property, not marital assets.
His recent divorce filing, however, states: "[Sam] has yet to determine the full nature and extent of the separate property and assets and obligations of each party."
It also says: "There are various items of community and quasi-community assets and debts, the full nature and extent of which are unknown to [Sam] at this time."
The actor is said to be seeking a massive payout from the award-winning musician, according to Page Six.

A source told the outlet that Sam is "attempting to negotiate concessions beyond his prenup and threatening to go public with extraordinarily embarrassing information about Britney unless he gets paid."
They added: "So that's what Sam is focused on."
It has yet to be revealed how much the Family Business actor is seeking or whether their current prenup permits disclosures of negative information.
A separate insider told Page Six that Britney's team has "protected" her and that the "parting will be respectful."
That same source added: "It's blackmail and it'll never happen."
Sam and Britney signed a prenup leading up to their wedding.
The music video performer confirmed that he and his then bride-to-be were signing "an iron-clad prenup" in September 2021 – shortly after they got engaged.
He wrote on his Instagram at the time: “Thank you, everyone, who is concerned about the prenup!”
The fitness professional then joked that they’d “of course” have an “ironclad prenup” because he needs to make sure “to protect my jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day.”
TYING THE KNOT
Britney and Sam were married in a star-studded ceremony in Los Angeles in 2022.
The bride walked down the aisle in a custom Versace dress in a gorgeous backyard wedding attended by the couple's famous friends Drew Barrymore, Madonna, Selena Gomez, and more.
Britney's ex-husband Jason Alexander gatecrashed the event, held at Britney's home – and was detained by cops on the scene.
Despite the drama, the superstar singer was all smiles in a classic white Versace gown, paired with jewelry by Stephanie Gottlieb and makeup by Charlotte Tilbury.
An eyewitness at the extravagant affair exclusively told The Sun that the princess of pop entered in a fairytale horse-drawn carriage.
She walked down the aisle to the Elvis classic I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You, an insider revealed.
