Britney Spears Announces Engagement

Britney Spears and boyfriend Sam Asghari have announced their engagement. 

Asghari’s talent manager Brandon Cohen of BAC Talent confirmed in a statement to CNN as well as a video from the pop star herself on her verified Instagram account confirming the news. 

“The couple made their longstanding relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,” Mr. Cohen said.

Spears and Asghari have been together for five years and seemed elated to announce their engagement to the world. In the video the newly engaged couple can be seen smiling and laughing as Spears shows off her new ring. 

The ring was designed by New York-based designer Roman Malayev, according to Cohen.

The couple first met in 2016 when Asghari co-starred with Spears in the video to her single, “Slumber Party.”

Their posts come days after Britney Spears’ fight to end her court-ordered conservatorship took an unexpected turn on Tuesday when her father and the conservator of her estate, Jamie Spears, filed a petition to end the arrangement.

The elder Spears has served as conservator of his daughter’s estate since it was established in 2009. He was also the conservator of her person, overseeing her health and medical issues until he stepped aside in 2019. That’s when Jodi Montgomery was appointed the temporary conservator of Spears’ person.

Spears gave a statement in her case in June, sharing that she had been drugged, forced to work and prevented from removing her birth control device.

“I just want my life back,” Spears said. “I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. I don’t feel like I can live a full life.”

In her statement, Spears said that under the conservatorship she was not able to marry or have a child.

“I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” the singer said. “I was told right now in the conservatorship I am not able to get married or have a baby.”

The conservatorship has still not been lifted and may very well hinder the marriage from going forward.
