Britney Spears' Assistant

Husband Files for Divorce

After Ugly Dress Controversy

4/14/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears
' infamously ugly bridesmaid dress at her assistant's wedding last year did NOT help keep the marriage intact -- because TMZ has learned, the assistant's husband has filed for divorce.

Britney famously appeared at her assistant Brett Miller's wedding in January 2011 -- sporting a notoriously hideous blue bridesmaid dress (above) -- and now, Brett's husband, reality TV producer Frank Lionetti, has filed a petition to end the marriage ... citing "irreconcilable differences."

According to the docs, Brett and Frank were married on January 28, 2011 -- and separated on February 14, 2012. They have no children.

And there's this -- Frank wants spousal support and attorney's fees from his estranged wife (reminder: she's an assistant).

It's unclear if Britney's dress was directly involved in the split.

Of COURSE the dress had nothing to do with the divorce (but I also know YOU know that but the joke fell flat). Has ANYONE ever worn a spectacularly beautiful bridesmaid dress? I think it's an oxymoron. I have been in about 7-8 weddings and the dresses are just inherently ugly but you smile and wear it because you were asked to be part of a special friend's special day and even if the dress is horrendously ugly, suck hit up. And Britney did so good for her!

This is one of the dumbest non stories I have ever heard.

The man is a bully, trying to protect his assets. So he makes threatening demands in order to end up with ALL his stuff. Jan28 to 14 February? Should it even be listed as a valid marriage? The woman is better off without this jerk!

TMZ calls Britney's dress ugly but yet goes on and on about how wonderful those fat, disgusting Kardashian tramps look all the time? Does Kriss Jenner have you on her patroll?
