Octavia Spencer may have managed to steal the show from a very famous bride-to-be.
The Oscar-winning actress reacted to Britney Spears’ Instagram announcement that the singer and Sam Asghari are getting married – with a frowning warning. The post itself has generated nearly 3 million likes, but Spencer’s advice is what gets people talking.
“Get her to sign a marriage contract, ”Spencer wrote in the comments.
This brief piece of wisdom has gained nearly 25,000 likes and hundreds of responses, including one from Asghari himself.
“@octaviaspencer 💯,” he wrote.
Asghari also proved he has a sense of humor when he recognized Spencer’s remark in his own Instagram story.
“Thank you to everyone who is concerned about the marriage contract! ” he wrote. “Of course we get an iron clad marriage contract to protect my jeep and shoe collection in case she ever dumps me.”
In 2004, Spears married his childhood friend Jason Alexander, but that union was called off soon after. Later that year, she married Kevin Federline, with whom she has two sons, Sean, 15, and Jayden, 15.
Spears, 39, revealed the news of her engagement on Sunday.
“I can’t f —— believe it 💍💍💍💍💍💍❣️ !!!!!” she captioned the clip.
Asghari, 27, also announced the engagement on Instagram, with a photo of the singer showing off her ring, blocking both of their faces.
“@britneyspears,” he captioned the post, complete with the king and queen emoji.
Spears has been in the headlines in recent months for his efforts to regain control of his estate from his father, who filed a petition to cease control of his guardianship last week.
