Britney Spears's husband has said the pair have decided to "end our journey together" in a statement confirming their split.
Sam Asghari, 29, has filed for divorce and is seeking financial support from Spears, 41, after just over a year of marriage.
In his filing to Los Angeles County Court, Asghari said the pair separated nearly three weeks ago and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the break-up.
Posting on Instagram, Asghari wrote: "After six years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together.
"We will hold on to the love and respect that we have for each other and I wish her the best always. S*** happens. Asking for privacy seems ridiculous so I will just ask for everyone including media to be kind and thoughtful."
His divorce filing lists the couple's separation date as 28 July, though reports of the split did not emerge until Wednesday.
It says he will try to get financial support from her - while blocking her from getting any from him.
Asghari is also trying to get the singer to pay for his divorce lawyers, according to the filings.
The filing says the value of Spears and Asghari's assets, and those they own jointly, is yet to be determined.
The couple married at a star-studded ceremony at the US singer's home in Los Angeles in June 2022.
They originally met on the set of the Slumber Party music video in 2016, and became engaged in September 2021 as her controversial conservatorship - the legal arrangement that controlled her life and finances - looked to be coming to an end.
Spears has not publicly addressed the break-up.
After several US outlets reported the relationship was ending on Wednesday, she posted a photo of herself on Instagram riding a horse on the beach.
In her Instagram post, the Toxic singer wrote: "Buying a horse soon! So many options it's kinda hard!
"I can't make up my mind. Should I join the camaraderie and put a pink cowboy hat on?"
After Asghari released his statement, she shared two posts featuring artwork, including one with the caption: "Sometimes you see more with your eyes closed."
Spears has been married three times - her first being a 55-hour "spur-of-the-moment" marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander in January 2004.
The pair wed in Las Vegas, but a then 22-year-old Spears annulled the nuptials two days later, reportedly on the advice of her management team.
In September 2004, she married the rapper and dancer Kevin Federline in Los Angeles, after a two-month engagement.
The pair, who have two children together, split in 2006, with Spears citing "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce papers.
