Britney Spears announces engagement to Sam Ashgari
Britney Spears has revealed she is engaged to partner Sam Asghari after more than four years together.
The pop superstar, who recently celebrated a legal victory in the conservatorship that controls her life and career, shared a video of her wearing a diamond ring.
She wrote on Instagram, “I can’t f*****g believe it” alongside diamond ring emojis and a love heart.
The video featured an emotional-looking Spears, 39, showing off the ring while Iranian actor and fitness instructor Asghari, 27, asked if she is pleased with it.
“Yes!” Spears replied. She also planted a kiss on his cheek.
The couple met on the set of a music video in 2016. Spears recently praised Asghari for his support during her “hardest years”.
Asghari’s manager, Brandon Cohen, confirmed the engagement to People.
He said in a statement he is “proud to celebrate and confirm the engagement”.
He added: “The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them.”
The engagement news comes after Spears’ father Jamie petitioned a court in Los Angeles to consider terminating her conservatorship.
The singer’s personal affairs and money have been controlled by a complex legal arrangement since 2008 after she suffered a series of mental breakdowns.
Spears had been demanding the conservatorship be brought to an end and accused her father of being abusive in his role overseeing her estate.
At a hearing in June, Spears alleged it was preventing her from marrying Asghari and starting a family together.
