Britney Spears Is Engaged! Get To Know Her Fiancé, Sam Asghari
She's been dating him for about five years before they got engaged
Everyone deserves a happy ending in love, and it looks like Britney Spears is finally getting hers.
Britney Spears and her fiancé, Sam Asghari, took to Instagram last September 13 to announce the happy news, both of their posts showcase Britney’s beautiful engagement ring designed by New York-based designer Roman Malayev. The pop star, however, has since deleted her Instagram account to take some time away from social media.
The couple dated for around five years prior to their engagement. They met on the set of Britney’s “Slumber Party” music video in 2016.
Britney has been making headlines this year due to her 13-year conservatorship which her father, James “Jamie” Spears, has been in charge of for over a decade. For Britney, this legally binding contract has caused her to suffer in both her personal and professional lives.
Just Last June, she requested a judge to end this “abusive” conservatorship so she could get married and have more children. In September 7, her father filed a petition to end their conservatorship agreement. Days later, here is Britney now, hoping to a build a peaceful future together with actor Sam Asghari.
