Some takes don't age well. This one tho...

Folks were hopeful that Spears listened back then.

It's just common sense, really.

Spears likely would have gotten a prenup anyway, some suspected.

Meanwhile, others were remembering how Spencer got backlash for even pointing out that Spears might want to get a prenup.

Even now, Spencer has continued her helpful commentary on Spears' and Asghari's divorce proceeding, warning Spears that Asghari's threats right now count as extortion.
