NO HARD FEELINGS

The actress also said that the pop singer's fans have already seen her through a lot of pain and now that she has found happiness, everyone is "thrilled" for her.

Despite the heartfelt apology, Asghari reacted to Spencer's Instagram post by saying she was very kind for clarifying her position but that there are no hard feelings between them.

The 27-year-old wrote that "jokes and misconceptions come with the territory," ending his message with 3 emojis - praying hands, a 100, and a heart.

Following news of the engagement, talks of a prenup filled the internet, but Asghari didn't take them to heart and even took the opportunity to show his funny side by saying:

“Thank you for your concern about the prenup! Of course, we’re getting iron-clad prenup to protect my Jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day.”

5 YEARS TOGETHER

Spears and Asghari have been dating since 2016, with the actor serving as her rock through some troubled times, mostly due to all the drama involving her father, Jamie Spears, and her conservatorship.

It has been reported that Spears is allowed to tie the knot while under a conservatorship unless a judge determines that she is in no condition to do so.

According to the Iran-native, he just wishes to make her happy, which directly contributes to his own happiness, bringing back the old "happy wife, happy life" saying.
