Now that she’s free, fans have a new concern – will Britney Spears’ fiancé Sam Asghari be controlling her? The pop star’s lover is said to have taken on more responsibility now that her tenure is over, but some worry that he is “now her boss”.
Britney and Sam, a model and actress, met on the set of the music video for her single, “Sleepper Party,” in 2016. The couple announced their engagement in September 2021 after five years of dating. Now, after Britney’s guardianship is ended in November 2021, the 40-year-old singer is “heavy” reliant on her fiancé, according to an insider who spoke to Radar. “Sam is now the boss,” the source told the site on December 16, 2021. “Understandably, after all she’s been through, Britney doesn’t trust a lot of people and that’s why she’s so dependent on Sam.”
The insider continued, “When her father was removed, the whole team had it all around her. Britney is the most successful pop star in the world and she has no manager or people helping her run her business.” While the source notes that Britney once had over 150 people working for her when she was leading her own show in Las Vegas, now the star has only one person on her “team” – and that’s Sam. “Everything she has is toxic and that’s why everything goes through it,” the source explained. “Even minor press requests now pass through Sam.”
So, what does Sam think of this extra responsibility? Well, according to the insider, Sam tries not to let the power of being “the boss” get into his head. “Sam is a good man, but he wants to be her husband and not her manager,” the insider said, noting that the personal trainer sympathizes with anxious fans. “He understands the power of being involved with someone so powerful. Britney is a cash machine. After what happened with her dad, he knows why people are scared.”
