Britney Spears and Sam Asghari have finalized their divorce eight months after they went their separate ways.

The former couple maintained the terms of their prenuptial agreement, with Spears keeping “miscellaneous jewelry” and other personal items as well as earnings she made before, during, and after the marriage.

Moreover, there are additional property assets that will be divided according to their prenup.

The court documents were filed at a Los Angeles court late Wednesday night and will become official pending a judge’s signature.

“Britney is continuing to turn the page — the stories of her going broke are ridiculous and demonstrably false,” a source told the Page Six. “Although she does enjoy luxe travel as a result of her hard-earned freedom, she had a landmark book deal that she will be profiting from for a long time and the sky is the limit in terms of her earning power, including movie rights to ‘The Woman in Me’ … and fortunately an ironclad prenup.”

Last August, the pop superstar, 42, and the fitness trainer-turned-actor, 30, separated after 14 months of marriage amid claims she cheated.

An insider also told the outlet at the time that Asghari was attempting to renegotiate the terms of the former couple’s iron-clad prenup, though he ultimately did not contest it.

Asghari officially filed for divorce from Spears on August 16, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

He listed their date of separation as July 28 and requested that the Princess of Pop pay him spousal support and his attorneys’ fees. In late August, they were able to reach a custody agreement as to how they planned to divide the ownership of their five dogs.

Asghari became the sole owner of a doberman named Porsha, which he had purchased for the “Piece of Me” singer in October 2021 in order to “protect” her. Spears, meanwhile, got full custody of her four other dogs, including an Australian Shepherd named Sawyer and a Yorkie named Hannah.

The Grammy winner and the “Can You Keep a Secret?” actor did not have any children together and therefore did not have any issues regarding parental custody rights.

Spears and Asghari tied the knot in June 2022 after dating for nearly six years.

This was the “Oops!…I Did It Again” singer’s third union. She was previously married to Jason Alexander, a childhood friend from Louisiana, for an infamous 55 hours in January 2004, and then to backup dancer-turned-DJ Kevin Federline, who is the father of two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James. They were married from October 2004 to July 2007.
