Britney Spears acts ‘manic’ after Sam Asghari leaves restaurant
Britney Spears reportedly had a meltdown at an LA restaurant Friday that caused her husband, Sam Asghari, to leave the establishment.
People who allegedly witness the incident told TMZ on Saturday that the pop icon, 41, was “manic” and began speaking gibberish.
Spears was also being recorded at the time by patrons inside the restaurant, which reportedly upset the “Hold Me Closer” singer.
In a video obtained by the outlet, Spears could be seen holding up a menu to shield her face from the camera.
Sources claim Asghari, 28, was “visibly upset” and “stormed out” of the place without his wife.
Just two minutes later, Spears reportedly walked out herself and her bodyguard allegedly picked up the bill.
Reps for Spears did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment. Asghari’s rep declined to comment.
The “Toxic” singer and “Family Business” actor are newlyweds as they have only been married since June 2022.
They tied the knot in a fairytale wedding at Spears’ home with celebrity guests, including Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Madonna and more.
The couple are typically very private but have occasionally shown a very united front on social media.
For Spears’ birthday in December, Asghari posted a video on Instagram of all the special things he did to commemorate his wife on her special day, including taking her out to eat and showering her with gifts and balloons.
Later that month, he debunked skeptics’ claims that he “controls” Spears, telling TMZ at the time, “No, I don’t even control what we have for dinner.”
“You know, in the past, there has been a lot of stuff going on, so I understand where [fans are] coming from,” the model added. “They’re just being protective. If anything, they’re being good fans.”
However, the couple has hinted a few times that not everything is smooth sailing in their relationship.
Spears admitted in November that she wasn’t totally “present” during her wedding to Asghari and the Iranian-born actor has also said that he is not a fan of his wife’s topless photos on social media.
