Octavia Spencer is saying sorry to the soon-to-be husband and wife, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari over her remark that the pop icon should “Make him sign a prenup.”
However, on Wednesday, the “Ma” actress shared her own post tending to the joke and taking note of that she has apologized to Britney and Sam.
“Y’all, a few days ago Sam and Britney announced their engagement and me being me I made a joke,” she captioned alongside a photo of the happy couple.
“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. We’re thrilled for her. So let’s show them love.👇🏽 #nonegativity,” Octavia proceeded as she alluded to the vocalist’s continuous fight in court with her dad, Jamie Spears over her conservatorship.
Sam just publicly responded to Octavia’s expression of remorse commenting, “You are very kind to clarify but i have no hard feelings whatsoever. Jokes and misconceptions come with the territory. 🙏 💯 ❤️”
“Thank you everyone is concerned about The prenup! Of course we’re getting iron clad prenup to protect my jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day,” the fitness enthusiast said.
The singer also deactivated her Instagram soon after her engagement announcement which sparked rumors that she did it as a result of the mind-boggling “prenup” jokes and remarks, but later clarified on Twitter on Tuesday that she’s just taking a little break from her social media account to fully celebrate her engagement and assured fans that she will be back soon.

@octaviaspencer that wasn’t a joke you said to @britneyspears it’s what we all want for her. If her dad can take her money in this bad situation. She needs to protect herself from anyone even a fiancé. ❤️ at least you spoke up and spoke truth.— Tami❤️ (@lvmuscfrevr) September 16, 2021
@octaviaspencer ask for no negativity when she started the drama spewing negativity. Now Britney’s fans are going after her she wants to change her tone.. this is not new in the climate we live in. No accountability. It was not funny to bring more negativity to other ppl— t.cat (@tcat94394028) September 16, 2021
