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.
â€œThe couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,â€ Cohen said.
Spears and Asghari each shared posts on Instagram to announce the engagement and to show off Spearsâ€™ ring.
Cohen said a New York City jeweler, Roman Malayev, designed the ring.
The engagement came just days after lawyers for Spearsâ€™ father, James Spears, wrote in a filing, â€œIf 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.â€
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.
â€œI just want my life back,â€ Spears said. â€œI truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. I donâ€™t feel like I can live a full life.â€
