Britney Spears has really been going through it. Last year, her dad had to have surgery for his ruptured colon which caused her to cancel her Domination Las Vegas residency. Then, she announced that she would be taking an indefinite break from her career to focus on her father.
While taking care of her father, Spears checked herself into a wellness facility to make sure that her own mental health stayed in a good place during such a trying time.
Though she is undergoing treatment, Spears recently checked herself out of the facility to spend Easter Sunday with a certain special person, her boyfriend, Sam Asghari.
Which left people wondering who exactly was this man that the singer would check out of treatment to spend time with?
Who is Asghari?
Asghari is a fitness trainer who was born in Iran on Mar. 4, 1994. The 25-year-old moved to LA in 2006 to be with his father.
The decision to move wasn’t an easy one to make.
“I had to leave my friends and family who I was very close with, and I knew I was moving away and never coming back,” he once told Men’s Health.
Since moving to Los Angeles, Asghari has become a model and fitness trainer. He has been featured in a number of music videos, which is actually how he met Spears.
Besides dating the famous singer, he has risen to fame by posting workout videos to social media.
“The exercises, I come up with them, but the videos are because of my better half,” Asghari told the outlet. “She’s the video director. She motivates me more than anyone. It’s crazy how I can be humbled by a person like her. If I could be that humble when I’m that high in life, that would be the best thing. She is another blessing that happened to me.”
How did Asghari and Spears meet?
Asghari met the Toxicsinger in 2016 on the set of her Slumber Party music video.
“We were shooting and we were doing this scene where I was doing the walk scene through the hall to go through the door to go to the bedroom, and we were sitting there and we were waiting and waiting together for 20 minutes at a time,” Spears told AMP 103.7’s Fast in the Morning with Nathan Fast and Sybil Summers of meeting her now boyfriend.
“So we were basically forced to talk to each other and he has no idea—I mean, he knows my name—but he doesn’t know me as a person. He’s like ‘What is this girl like?’ and I have no idea who the hell he is,” she said.
The pair have been together publicly since 2017.
What did Asghari and Spears do over Easter?
After checking out of her treatment facility, the pair were seen leaving the
Montage Resort and Hotel in Beverly Hills on Sunday.
“Britney is still receiving treatment but had a short break this weekend to enjoy Easter. She spent time with Sam,” a source close to the Spears family told People.
Guests at the treatment facility are encouraged to continue their normal routines, according to the outlet.
