Stronger together! It was love at first sight when Britney Spears And Sam Asghari met in October 2016 on the set of her music video “Slumber Party”.
“I was delighted to have [would] meet one of the greatest artists of all time,” the personal trainer recalled to men’s health in July 2018. “I had butterflies.”
But when Asghari tried to break the ice, he nearly ruined his chances with the Grammy winner. “She said, ‘Hi, my name’s Britney,’ and I said, ‘I’m sorry, what’s your name again?'” he told the magazine. “I tried to be funny. I don’t think anyone understood that.”
Luckily, Spears was charmed by the fitness model and they started chatting about one of their favorite foods, sushi. They continued to talk throughout filming and exchanged phone numbers at the end so they could arrange a suitable first date. And the rest, as they say, was history.
“I found his number in my bag. I was like, ‘He’s really cute. This guy is really cute,” the Princess of Pop shared in a January 2017 radio interview. “So I called him, and ever since then he’s just been a really fun, funny person.”
Since then, Asghari has been a huge support system for Spears in her personal and professional life. He was a fixture in the audience during his A part of me residency in Las Vegas and helped her emerge stronger than yesterday (pun intended) after spending 30 days in a mental health facility in the spring of 2019.
“Sam has been an absolute dream come true for Britney,” a source says We Weekly exclusively in May 2019. “He’s such a positive light in her life.”
The “Toxic” singer was previously married to her childhood beau Jason Alexander for 55 hours in 2004, and substitute dancer Kevin Federline from 2004 to 2007. She co-parented sons Preston and Jayden with K-Fed.
Asghari proposed to the “Womanizer” singer in September 2021 after nearly five years together.
“The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love shown to them,” their manager said. Brandon Cohensaid We via a statement at the time.
