Britney Spears reportedly had a meltdown at a LA restaurant on Friday, prompting her husband, Sam Asghari, to leave.
According to witnesses, the pop icon, 41, was “manic” and began speaking gibberish at Joey in Woodland Hills, Califonia, on Saturday.
Britney was also being recorded by patrons inside the restaurant at the time, which reportedly irritated the “Hold Me Closer” singer.
The singer was seen holding up a menu to shield her face from the camera in a video obtained by the outlet.
According to sources, Asghari, 28, was “visibly upset” and “stormed out” of the establishment without his wife.
Spears reportedly walked out two minutes later, and her bodyguard allegedly picked up the bill.
A manager at Joey’s revealed that they are unable to “disclose any information” or confirm the couple’s presence.
Britney Spears has openly admitted to struggling with mental health issues, which she attributes to the stresses of her 13-year conservatorship.
She was reportedly diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but she has spoken out on social media and in court about allegedly being held against her will in a mental health facility and forced to take medications.
Despite her difficulties, Spears and Asghari were able to marry in a fairytale wedding at the Grammy winner’s home in California in June 2022, with celebrity guests including Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Madonna, and others.
The “Toxic” singer and “Family Business” actor are usually very private, but they have put on a united front on social media on occasion.
For Spears’ birthday in December, Asghari shared a video on Instagram of all the special things he did for his wife, including taking her out to eat and showering her with gifts and balloons.
Later that month, he refuted critics’ claims that he “controls” Spears, telling TMZ, “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 several times that their relationship is not without challenges.
