Britney Spears’ Boyfriend, Sam Asghari, Slams Spears’ Dad Following Documentary
The New York Times released the documentary Framing Britney Spears last week, shining a light on the troubled life of Britney Spears.
Following the documentary debut, Spears’ boyfriend, actor Sam Asghari spoke out on his Instagram story in support of his girlfriend and against her father, Jamie Spears. Jamie has controlled Spears’ conservatorship since 2008.
“Now it’s important for people to understand that I have zero respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way,” Asghari wrote on his Instagram story Tuesday.
“In my opinion James is a total d—. I won’t be going into details because I’ve always respected our privacy but at the same time I didn’t come to this country to not be able to express my opinion and freedom,” he added.
Spears and Asghari met in 2016 on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video. They began dating soon after that.
Following the release of the documentary, Asghari showed support for his girlfriend and seemed optimistic about their future.
“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. “I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together.”
The New York Times documentary sheds light on Spears’ struggles with fame and about her ongoing conservatorship. Spears has been in an ongoing legal battle over removing her father’s control over her assets. Her conservatorship was supposed to end in Feb. 2021, but in Dec. 2020, the timeline was extended to Sept. 2021.
Framing Britney Spears also pleased Spears’ fans who have been promoting the #FreeBritney campaign for years. Spears’ legal team said she always appreciates the support her fans give her.
