Britney Spears, forever immortalized as a pop culture icon, is set to see financial gain from the re-release of her 2002 film 'Crossroads', against the backdrop of a high-stakes divorce with Sam Asghari.

Unveiled by Trafalgar Releasing, Sony Music Entertainment, and RCA Records, the fans' adored rom-com is hitting cinemas again this October worldwide. This re-release is ingeniously timed to coincide with the publication of Spears' much-awaited memoir, titled 'The Woman in Me', due in stores on October 24.

In 'Crossroads', Spears starred as Lucy, a young woman on a self-discovery journey alongside childhood friends, roles brought to life by Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning. The film grossed over $61 million during its inaugural run, an impressive feat considering its humble budget of only $12 million.

The refreshingly transparent deposition made by an insider to Page Six revealed that Spears will be earning from the "back end" of the internationally acclaimed film. This term essentially implies that she will secure a percentage of the profits from total earnings.

Such a financial agreement will undeniably assist Spears in affording her formidable legal team, brought on board to navigate her divorce proceedings from Asghari, a personal trainer turned actor. Spears is also said to be paying Asghari a "stipend" from her estimated $60-million estate, until their matrimonial financial matters are settled in court.

Asghari has reportedly moved into a plush LA apartment, costing a hefty $65,000 per month. According to reports he may potentially miss out on large divorce settlements due to a speculated loophole in their prenuptial agreement.
