New court documents have revealed Britney Spears plans to sign a prenuptial agreement with her fiancé Sam Asghari.
The couple announced their engagement earlier this month, after five years together.
Shortly after they shared the happy news, fans urged the pair to sign a prenup – amid Britney’s ongoing legal battle over her controversial conservatorship.
Britney’s father Jamie Spears recently agreed to step down as her conservator, after she called for an end to her conservatorship during a bombshell court hearing in July.
In a supplemental filing on September 22, Britney’s lawyer called for the “immediate suspension” of Jamie from his position.
In court papers obtained by E! News, the pop singer’s attorney cited her recent engagement to Sam, and said she’s in the process of crafting a prenuptial agreement before they tie the knot.
“To all the reasons why immediate suspension always has been required, we now can add another essential one: as has been publicly reported, Ms. Spears recently became engaged,” the papers state.
“With Ms. Spears’s consent and pursuant to her instructions, Ms. Spears and the undersigned counsel are in the process of engaging a family law attorney to craft a prenuptial agreement.”
“The prenuptial agreement process will require communications with and cooperation from the Conservator of her Estate but, as referenced above and well-established in the record, given that Ms. Spears’ s relationship with that Conservator (her father) is broken, Mr. Spears’s continued involvement would impede the ability to negotiate and consummate a contract that all can agree is in Ms. Spears’s best interests.”
The news comes after Sam reassured fans he would be signing a prenup before marrying Britney.
In a post shared on Instagram, the 27-year-old wrote: “Thank you everyone who is concerned about the prenup!”
“Of course we’re getting iron clad prenup to protect my jeep and shoe collection incase she dumps me one day,” he added, alongside two laughing emojis.
The pop singer announced her engagement to Sam on September 12, by posting a video of her showing off her massive diamond ring.
She captioned the post: “I can’t f***ing believe it 💍💍💍💍💍💍❣️!!!!!!”
The news came just two months after Britney expressed her desire to get married and have another baby during her bombshell court testimony.
Calling for an end to her conservatorship, which has controlled her life since 2008, Britney said: “I want to be able to get married and have a baby.”

“I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby. I have an IUD inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant,” she alleged.
“I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children — any more children,” she claimed.
Britney’s father Jamie Spears has since filed a petition to end her controversial conservatorship after 13 years.
According to court documents obtained by E! News, Britney’s estate is worth $57.4 million – which includes $2.7 million in cash assets, and $54.7 million in non-cash assets.
The 39-year-old was placed under a conservatorship after she suffered an alleged breakdown in 2008.
A conservatorship is granted to those who are incapable of making decisions, such as people with mental disabilities.
The arrangement put her estate, financial assets, and some personal assets under the control of her father Jamie, and lawyer Andrew Wallet – who has since resigned from the role.
The pop star’s conservatorship has been under review since 2019 after she accused her father of forcing her to enter a mental health facility.
In November last year, the songstress tried to have her father removed as her conservator, but her request was denied.
Instead, a judge named wealth management firm the Bessemer Trust as co-conservator of her estate, alongside her father.
However, Bessemer Trust has since resigned from the role.
