Britney Spears and dancer Sam Asghari announced the engagement. In a video posted on Instagram, Spears unveiled a sizeable diamond ring. They have been a couple for five years, but previously it was not possible due to the singer’s guardianship.
“I can’t f … believe it,” wrote Britney Spears on Instagram, who until recently could not think about getting married or having children because of her father’s tutelage. The artist praised her engagement shortly after the announcement that James Spears had filed in a court in Los Angeles application for the resignation of 13 years of guardianship over the daughter.
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari got engaged
39-year-old Britney Spears and 27-year-old Sam Asghari from Iran met in 2016 on the set of the music video for the song “Slumber Party”. Asghari – as Spears emphasized – was a support for her in the fight for independence.
“The couple has made their long-term relationship official and they are both deeply touched by the support, devotion and love they have been shown,” said Brandon Cohen, the dancer manager, to CNN.
Asghari also shared a photo showing Britney’s ring on Instagram. Cohen told CNN that the ring was designed by New York jewelry designer Roman Malayev.
The 39-year-old singer has already been married twice. In 2004, she became engaged to childhood friend Jason Alexander, but their marriage was annulled after only a few days.
In the same year, the artist married a dancer Kevin Federline. The relationship broke up after three years. The ex-couple has two sons.
In 2008, Spears’ father and his attorney at the time, Andrew Wallet, gained control of all aspects of Britney’s life, including her $ 60 million in fortune. The artist was then struggling with mental difficulties and addictions.
The singer has not been able to enjoy complete freedom for 13 years. At that time, she released platinum albums, performed, among others on TV and in Las Vegas, but she had no financial control over any of these projects.
