Los Angeles: Singer Britney Spears who is in the midst of a divorce from Sam Asghari is reportedly getting therapy. According to reports, the pop icon is a 'little shocked' that Sam had filed a split from her on August 16, citing irreconcilable differences. The two have been married for six years.

Her friends, however, said she has a strong support network to keep her going, including a counsellor and her heavyweight celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser.

"Britney is strong, she's feeling like, 'Woah', like you would in any break-up when you've been with someone for six years, but she's very clear headed. She's not holed up all alone crying," said a source.

Another source told the outlet: "I think Britney gets a bad rap, she's a true artist, in the way that she processes things, in the way that she creates. But she's doing incredibly well under the circumstances."

Britney's divorce lawyer Ms Wasser, 55, charges $1000-an-hour and has represented a string of A-listers over her near 30-year law career including Angelina Jolie, Heidi Klum, Kris Jenner, Ryan Reynolds, Christina Aguilera, Hilary Duff, Stevie Wonder, Patricia Arquette, Kate Walsh, Johnny Knoxville and Kevin Costner.
