The wife of paparazzo and Britney Spears
's latest flame, Adnan Ghalib, filed for legal separation from the photographer on Friday, court documents show.
Azlynn Elizabeth Berry cites irreconcilable differences for the split. She asks that Ghalib pay spousal support and her attorney's fees.
Documents show they were married on Dec. 18, 2003, and separated on Jan. 18 – the same day the papers were filed. They have no children together, the papers say.
Spears, 26, and Ghalib, 35, who's photographed the singer for years, have until recently been inseparable. Ghalib's photo-agency employer has described him as Spears's boyfriend
and says Ghalib had been separated from his wife for more than a year.
