Kanye West once sang, “If you’re not a punk, holla, ‘We want a marriage contract! We want a marriage contract! ‘ That advice apparently stuck with Octavia Spencer.
After Britney Spears revealed she was engaged to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari over the weekend, fans showered her with their best wishes for the impending nuptials.
At least one fan, however, took the opportunity to offer some advice.
Actress Octavia Spencer slipped into Spears’ Instagram comments section to suggest a prenuptial agreement.
“Get her to sign a marriage contract,” wrote Spencer, who won an Oscar for his role in “The Help.”
The comment garnered over 44,000 likes.
Asghari responded to the suggestion in an Instagram story on Monday, thanking “anyone concerned about the marriage contract!”
“Of course we get an iron clad marriage contract to protect my jeep and shoe collection in case it ever dumps me,” he wrote alongside a few laughing emojis.
Spencer’s comment might be pretty solid advice, given Spears’ long struggle to regain control of his finances.
For the past 13 years, aspects of his life and fortune have been governed by a trusteeship run in part by his father Jamie Spears, who finally agreed to step down as curator last month.
Jamie Spears wrote in a court petition this month that her daughter “has the right” to ask the court to reassess the need for guardianship and said the grounds for the arrangement “may no longer exist.”
