Who is Britney Spears’ partner, Sam Asghari?
Sam Asghari is a 27-year-old model, personal trainer, and actor. Asghari and 39-year-old Spears first crossed paths on the set of her music video for "Slumber Party" in 2016 and soon became an item thereafter. As an actor, he's made cameos in "Black Monday" on Showtime and "Hacks" on HBO Max, to name a few.
Asghari is originally from Iran but migrated to the U.S. at 12 years old to join his father, who had moved to Los Angeles, according to Men's Health. Unfortunately, this caused him to leave behind his mother and sisters—an understandably difficult move.
It's not uncommon to see snaps of Britney pop up on his Instagram feed. From COVID-19 vaccination appointments to hiking trips and beach visits, the two seem to tackle everything together.

Sam Asghari Free Britney: How is he supporting her?
According to Page Six, Asghari never hesitates to help Spears through this difficult journey. He assures her that she is loved and supported, and even makes subtle nods to her situation online.
He shared a photo of a lioness in his stories following Britney's court hearing on June 23rd, signifying her strength for speaking her truth. He, like many fans, even donned a Free Britney shirt during an Instagram Story ahead of her anticipated court appearance.
Following the release of the viral Britney Spears documentary on Hulu, Asghari spoke out to say that he was in her corner. "I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves," he told People.
Britney Spears IUD and her future with Sam
For 13 years, Britney's father Jamie Spears has been in control of her $60 million estate. Under the conservatorship, Britney is not entitled to make any decisions concerning her life, wellbeing, career, or even relationships.
Per her court-hearing reveal on June 23rd, Britney stated that she is not allowed to have control over her schedule—which affects when she sees Sam and her sons—she has been forced to perform and take medication against her will, and perhaps most frighteningly of all, she cannot make decisions about marriage or conceiving children, per The New York Times.
"I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told right now in the conservatorship I am not able to get married and have a baby," Spears said. "I have an IUD inside of myself right now, so I don't get pregnant. I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won't let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don't want me to have children—any more children."
That's all now changed because the singer and Sam are now officially engaged!
