Britney met Sam in 2016 while shooting for the music video of her single, Slumber Party. She announced their engagement earlier this week with a video where she flaunted her ring. “Look at that. Do you like it?” he asked her, to which she enthusiastically said yes. “I can’t f***ing believe it,” her caption read.
Meanwhile, Britney has been in the midst of an ugly legal fight with her father, to end her court-ordered conservatorship, handled by her father Jamie Spears. She has been under conservatorship since 2008. In June, Britney told a Los Angeles court that the 13-year-old conservatorship, controlled by her father was abusive, saying “I just want my life back.” She also called out her support system for ‘hurting her deeply’. “I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes !!!!! My so-called support system hurt me deeply !!!! This conservatorship killed my dreams … so all I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill … yet people still try !!!!”
