Who is the man that has caught Britney's heart?
Meet Britney Spears' Boyfriend Sam Asghari
Sam Asghari was born and raised in Tehran, Iran until he and his father moved to the US when he was 12 years old. He loved participating in sports like football and soccer and studied criminal justice at Pierce College before focusing on personal training. It was his dedication to fitness that led him into modeling and being cast in countless music videos like Fifth Harmony's "Work From Home".
Britney Spears first met Sam Asghari onset of her October 2016 music video "Slumber Party." He portrayed her gorgeous love interest and told Men's Health that he immediately had "butterflies" in his stomach. He apparently tried to make her laugh with a few bad jokes.
"She said, 'Hi, I'm Britney' and I said, 'I’m sorry. What’s your name again?' I tried to be funny. I don’t think anybody got it." Luckily, he still was able to charm the artist ad the pair went on a sushi date after shooting.
On New Years Day of 2017, the pair went Instagram official with Britney posting a photo of the pair together. Britney said Sam had slipped his phone number into her bag after filming their music video and she thought he was "really cute" and "fun."
Later in the year, Britney brought Sam along to a Lakers game with her two sons Jayden and Sam she has with Kevin Federline. The photos of the modern family riled up her fans who were ecstatic for the superstar. Britney began bringing Sam along to countless red carpet events like the GLAAD Awards and movie premieres.
Then in 2019 when she went to a mental health facility after burnout from working 7 days a week at her Las Vegas Residency. Sam was instantly supportive, posting on social media saying "It isn't weakness, it's a sign of absolute strength, people should only be inspired by this, at least I am #stronger."
Britney Spears, Sam Asghari, and #FreeBritney
As the pandemic began to strike, the pair were able to spend more time together. Both shared their workout videos together and sweet prank videos. During the pandemic, the #FreeBritney movement was getting a lot of attention and details surrounding the incredible restrictions of Britney's conservatorship were beginning to surface.
Both Britney and Sam had been silent about the movement and conservatorship and all information was being positively spun by her father Jamie Spears. When Framing Britney first aired, Sam shared to Instagram saying, "Now it's important for people to understand that I have zero respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way. In my opinion, Jamie is a total dick."
He said, "I won't be going into details because I've always respected our privacy but at the same time I didn't come to this country to not be able to express my opinion and freedom."
Britney Spears Is Not Allowed To Get Married and Have a Child
Now that Britney has finally opened up to the Los Angeles Court about the extent of her suffering at the hands of her father and the conservatorship. The 39-year-old explained that she is not allowed to get married or have another child.
"I was told right now, in the conservatorship, I'm not able to get married or have a baby. I have an IUD [intrauterine birth control] inside of myself right now so I don't get pregnant. I wanted to take the IUD out, so I can start trying to have a baby. But this so-called team won't let me go to the doctor to take it out, because they don't want me to have children, any more children."
She said she is not even allowed to ride in her boyfriend's car without supervision. "So, basically, this conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life. I worked my whole life, and I deserve to have a two, three-year break and just do what I want to do. I wish I could stay with you on the phone forever, because when I get off the phone with you, all of a sudden all I hear are no's. 'No, no, no.'"
A friend of the pair told Entertainment Tonight, "She is beyond exhausted. She is ready to live her life. She is ready to love freely on her own terms. Britney and Sam basically live their life as a couple under curfew. She wants to be free of all the restrictions and she is ready to fight for her life because that is what this is."
"Their love is often childlike and fun, but it is also deep and serious. They have overcome so much, which has balanced them out, but also showed them that they can do anything together. They're stronger than ever and ready to take on whatever challenge comes their way including business, personal, everything else in between. It's Britney and Sam as a unit, period."
Will Britney and Sam finally break free from Jamie Spears' chains and make a family? We will have to wait and see.
