Pop star  Britney Spears  has announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari.

Spears broke the news on Instagram with the caption,” I can’t fucking believe it.”

Last week, Spears’ father, Jamie Spears filed a petition to end his daughter’s court-ordered conservatorship.

The filing comes weeks after Jamie Spears said he was prepared to step back from his role as conservator, and after repeated requests from the pop star to remove him from what she and her supporters say is a cruel and exploitative arrangement.

Britney, 39, rocketed to fame in her teens but suffered a highly public 2007 breakdown, attacking a paparazzo’s car at a gas station.

That led to her being placed under the unusual legal guardianship largely governed by her father.

She has repeatedly lashed out at her father over the conservatorship, claiming in court testimonies and social media posts the arrangement amounted to “cruelty,” and accusing him of profiting from the system.

Britney alleged in court that she had been prevented from having a contraceptive IUD removed, despite wanting more children, and was forcefully put on medication that made her feel “drunk.”

 

 

Jamie Spears’ removal has been a longstanding demand of devoted global fans campaigning under the #FreeBritney slogan.
