(news.yahoo.com ) - The wife of Britney Spear's paparazzi pal has filed for legal separation from him. Azlynn Elizabeth Berry cites irreconcilable differences with Adnan Ghalib for the split after four years of marriage, according to documents filed Friday in Superior Court.
Berry, representing herself in court papers, seeks spousal support, and for Ghalib to pay her legal fees, the filing said. Her phone number was not listed.
In recent weeks, Ghalib has been seen accompanying Spears on shopping excursions, restaurant outings and to the courthouse. Ghalib is said to work for the photo agency FinalPixx. An after-hours call to the agency was not answered Tuesday.
Ghalib told the syndicated television magazine show "The Insider" on Tuesday that he had photographed Spears for several years before they grew closer in late December. He said their relationship blossomed after Spears was released from a hospital following a standoff in her home when she refused to return her children to ex-husband Kevin Federline's bodyguard.
"We managed to spend a long time together, away from the media," Ghalib said.
In another interview with the TV show "Entertainment Tonight," Ghalib denied accusations that he was profiting from his relationship with the pop star.
"A lot of people perceive to know or understand her, she's the most photographed woman in the world," Ghalib said. "But if you take time to scratch the surface, then you can understand how amazing she is."
