Britney Spears is back in the headlines, but this time she’s talking openly about her messy divorce with Sam Asghari and how she’s dealing with it, seemingly a departure from her past mental health controversies. In a recent Instagram post on Saturday morning, the ‘Toxic’ hitmaker can be seen posing with her longtime friend and manager Cade Hudson.

In one of the snaps, the latter appears to lean in towards her for a kiss on the cheek. For the caption, Spears shared how she is coping with ending her third marriage and emphasized taking “one day at a time.” This comes within a week after the songstress sparked fear among fans when she performed a dangerous number with butcher knives. 

Spears insists she is a ‘beautiful place’

The ‘Gimme More’ singer began her caption with gratitude for her friends, writing, “I’m in such a beautiful location !!! l’m so lucky to have amazing friends !!! Positive affirmations are important to me at the moment !!!” Spears then talked about the emotional challenge of delving into her past while penning her upcoming memoir, ‘The Woman In Me,’ all while separating from her third husband.

“I say this because I’m going through a divorce and having to reflect my past in a book was … let’s just say not easy !!!” she further wrote. “I’m just saying !!! But I take one day at a time learning to breathe !!! Self love is so unbelievably important !!! I woke up and just cried because I felt grateful to be in such a beautiful place !!!”

Spears and Hudson have been BFFs for decades. The former CAA agent began working as her manager in 2022, soon after the departure of Spears’ former manager of 25 years, Larry Rudolph.

‘I couldn’t take the pain anymore honestly’

In an August Instagram post, the 41-year-old singer broke her silence following her divorce from Asghari for the first time. “As everyone knows, Hesam and I are no longer together … 6 years is a long time to be with someone so, I’m a little shocked but … I’m not here to explain why because its honestly nobody’s business !!!” she wrote in the caption. 

“But, I couldn’t take the pain anymore honestly !!! In some sort of telepathic way I have been receiving so many messages that melt my heart from friends and I thank you !!!,” Spears said, before adding, “I’ve been playing it strong for way too long and my Instagram may seem perfect but it’s far from reality and I think we all know that !!! I would love to show my emotions and tears on how I really feel but some reason I’ve always had to hide my weaknesses !!!” Spears concluded by noting that she is, in fact, doing “pretty damn good,” adding, “Anyways have a good day and don’t forget to smile !!!”

Spears was ‘copying Shakira’

In a recent Instagram post, Spears performed a dangerous dance routine with huge kitchen knives, raising concern among fans about her mental well-being. Despite, the songstress insisting that the knives were “NOT real,” the following day, she was seen with a cut on her thigh and a bandage wrapped around her arm. Spears then continued to assure her fans that the knives were merely props that her team had “rented from Hand Prop shop in LA.” She also explained that her dance routine was inspired by Shakira’s MTV VMAs performance from earlier this month.
