Singer Britney Spears announced through her Instagram account that she will marry her personal trainer Sam Asghari. The American artist was shown in a video with her fiancé. “I can’t believe it!” Spears wrote with various ring and heart emojis at the bottom of the post.
Asghari also shared a photo with Britney kissing while the artist shows her ring in the foreground. The artist met her partner five years ago while filming her music video “Slumber Party.”
Spears ad arrives after her father, James Spears, stepped down from his role as legal guardian. Since 2008, the life and finances of the singer were controlled by man. The #FreeBritney campaign, in support of the singer to regain her autonomy, quickly became popular and was shared by various personalities from the world of music.
End of Britney Spears’ guardianship, after 13 years
Last Wednesday, Britney’s father petitioned the Los Angeles Superior Court end the legal guardianship that he has maintained over his daughter for 13 years, which will allow the 39-year-old singer to have complete control over her life and finances.
Jamie Spears filed a petition with Judge Brenda Penny, saying that recent events demonstrated that Britney “should have the opportunity” to control her own affairs. “If Ms. Spears wants to end the guardianship and thinks she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears thinks she should have that opportunity,” Britney’s father’s representative said after #FreeBritney.
The guardianship was established in 2008 after a series of personal problems triggered by the relentless persecution of the press, and as a consequence Britney lost custody of her children and control of her finances and different aspects of her own life.
But on June 23, in the midst of the boiling #FreeBritney movement, the singer explicitly asked in court to allow her to regain her guardianship: “I just want my life back”, She had claimed, in addition to saying that she was forced to use an intrauterine device to control her birth against her will.
