Sam Asghari is setting the record straight on how he really feels about his wife, Britney Spears, posting nude photos of herself on social media.
“The only person in the world that gets bullied for posting things like this,” the “Lioness” actor, 28, commented on Instagram Friday before admitting, “I personally preferred she never posted these but who am I to control someone that’s been under a microscope and been controlled for most of her life.”
Asghari shared his stance after Spears, 41, posted on Instagram a series of topless photos of herself with only either emojis or her hair covering her naked breasts.
“Stop! Please stop! Freedom is not when you take off your clothes. Dress up and speak for yourself with a calm mind,” one critic wrote.
Another added in the comments section, “Something is not ok! Who is handling this account? And isnt there another court date soon? Someone is messing with her. Not normal. Why does Sam say ‘the media can be very traumatizing’ yet you’re ok with this?”
Asghari’s honest comment is the first time he has hinted at any discontent over Spears’ half-naked pics.
When Kevin Federline previously claimed his teen sons with the pop icon, Sean Preston, 17, and Jayden James, 16, had not seen their mother in months due to her racy photos, the former fitness trainer came to her defense.
“Even if there was truth to her kids being ashamed of their mothers [sic] choices and positive body image they wouldn’t be the 1st teenagers emberrassed [sic] of their parents,” Asghari wrote in an Instagram Story in August. “The mere presence of a parent can humiliate a teenager.”ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
