Britney Spears announces engagement to longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari

Britney Spears has announced that she is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, three months after she told a Los Angeles judge that the conservatorship that has governed her life since 2008 was robbing her of the ability to make personal decisions.

Brandon Cohen, a talent manager for Asghari, confirmed the engagement on Sunday night.

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

Spears and Asghari each shared posts on Instagram to announce the engagement and to show off Spears’ ring.

Cohen said a New York City jeweler, Roman Malayev, designed the ring.

The engagement came just days after lawyers for Spears’ father, James Spears, wrote in a filing, “If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance.”

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.”
