In the comments section of a post about how the actor was allegedly "threatening to go public with extraordinarily embarrassing information about Britney unless he gets paid," Spencer wrote, "extortion is illegal."

This is not the first time The Help star advised Spears and Asghari. In September 2021, when the formerly married couple got engaged, Spencer took the comments section of one of the chart topper's posts to warn, "make him sign a prenup."

After the small remark made headlines, Spencer clarified what she meant in her own post, writing alongside the pair's picture, "My intention was to make them laugh not cause pain. I've reached out to this lovely couple privately to apologize and now want to restore just a smidge of happiness they were robbed of."

"Britney's fans have seen her through a lot of pain, and she's found happiness," referring to Spears' 13-year conservatorship that ended November 2021. "We're thrilled for her. So let's show them love. #nonegativity."

"After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together," he wrote on his Instagram Story. "We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always. S–- happens."
