Spears and Asghari began dating in 2016 after meeting on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video. After going public with their relationship the following year, Asghari has shown his support for Spears time and time again.
“Several people in Britney’s life were iffy about Sam in the beginning of their relationship and worried that he was a fame-seeking opportunist and an enabler,” an insider exclusively told Us Weekly in February 2021. “They kept a very close eye on Britney at first to make sure that was not the case.”
Following her public mental breakdown and split from Kevin Federline after two years of marriage, Spears was placed under a conservatorship in February 2008. Her father, Jamie Spears, was made the primary conservator in 2019 after attorney Andrew Wallet abruptly stepped down from his duties. Jamie temporarily relinquished his role later that year to licensed fiduciary Jodi Montgomery due to health issues.
In the wake of the New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears in February 2021, Agshari spoke out in Spears’ defense and slammed her father for being a “total dick.” He also claimed that Jamie has tried to “control” the couple’s relationship. Spears was released from the conservatorship in November 2021.
Asghari proposed to Britney in September 2021 after five years of dating. The pair wed in June 2022 but called it quits after just 14 months of marriage. Asghari filed for divorce in August 2023. Despite their split, Asghari shared via his rep at the time that he “has always and will always support” Spears.
