Who Is Sam Asghari, Britney Spears’ New Boyfriend?
Britney Spears‘ dating life has always made headlines but her most recent relationship has largely remained out of the spotlight.
On Sunday, Spears shared a video of her and her boyfriend Sam Asghari nodding their heads to J. Balvin and Willy William‘s song “Mi Gente.” While Asghari moves both his eyebrows up and down in a humorous way, Spears giggles saying that she can’t do it.
Spears, 35, and Asghari, 23, met during the filming of Spears’ music video for her song “Slumber Party,” off her 2016 album Glory.
In the video, Asghari, who is a model and an aspiring actor, stars as Spears’ love interest and the object of her affection.
The two are rumored to have started dating soon after the music video was made, primarily because Asghari posted a picture to of the two of them to Twitter. After fans began to wonder about the relationship, the model deleted the picture.
It wasn’t until March that Spears shared a photo of the couple online. Celebrating Asghari’s birthday, the “Toxic” singer posted a photo of the two of them on a hike, a birthday cake, and a photo of them fooling around on Snapchat. The tweet was captioned, “My baby’s birthday.”

After that initial post, the model soon became a fixture on the singer’s social media pages. Photos of the couple kissing have been posted on several occasions, including one showing Spears and Asghari dancing before the singer took the stage in Las Vegas.
Asghari is of Persian heritage and grew up in Iran, according to The Sun. He currently does work as a personal trainer. His sister, Fay Asghari, is a model as well.
Spears, who has released nine studio albums over the course of her career, just wrapped up a month long tour, during which she made stops in Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore, and Israel.
