YES they do! Britney Spears (39) and Sam Asghari (27) want to get married.
The pop princess and actor announced their engagement on Instagram on Sunday. The two have been together for four years and met in 2016 on the set of Spears’ music video “Slumber Party”.
Spears posted a video on Instagram on Sunday in which she winks, kisses a smiling Asghari on the cheek and proudly presents a ring. She answered his question whether she liked the diamond ring with “Yes”. She writes: “I can’t believe it!”
Overjoyed, the singer kissed her boyfriend and stretched the new ring towards the camera. “Take a look at that,” Asghari then said and asked: “Do you like it?” Britney could only comment on THAT with a tender “yes”.
Asghari’s manager Brandon Cohen told CNN and the Hollywood Reporter, “The couple today made their long-term relationship official and are deeply touched by the support, devotion and love they have received.” Spears’ new ring is from the New Yorker Jeweler Roman Malayev was designed and is unique. The word “lioness” is engraved on the inside of the ring.
The couple met on the set of their music video “Slumber Party” in 2016, in which he played their lover. On New Year’s Day 2017, the “Gimme More” singer officially announced her relationship with Asghari on Instagram. Spears recently shared a couple’s photo with Asghari, stating that he had “lived through both the toughest and best years of my life” with her. Asghari himself announced in February that he would continue to support Spears in following her dreams and creating the future she desires and deserves. He is looking forward to a normal, wonderful future together. “
The moment for the engagement couldn’t be more appropriate. It takes place amid Spear’s troubled battle for guardianship. Just a few days ago her father, Jamie Spears, filed a motion to end his 13-year guardianshipafter his daughter accused him of using his position to completely control her – including her love life!
For Spears, this is another significant step on the way to a self-determined life. In June, in an emotional court hearing, she said she would like to get married and have another child, but that she had not been allowed to see a doctor to remove her IUD. Spears has two teenage sons from her 2007 divorced marriage to Kevin Federline.
Britney Spears has been under her father’s tutelage since 2008 after she collapsed mentally due to personal and professional problems. Initially, James Spears managed his daughter’s wealth and private affairs. In 2019 he stepped down, but remained responsible for finances. Co-guardian Jodi Montgomery is responsible for the singer’s personal concerns, including medical concerns.
