After publicly supporting his girlfriend following the release of Framing Britney Spears, Sam Asghari has called Britney Spears' father, Jamie, a “total d*ck” via Instagram amid her ongoing messy conservatorship battle — and alluding that he has been interfering in their relationship.
“Now it’s important for people to understand that I have zero respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way,” he wrote on his Instagram Story on Tuesday, February 9. “In my opinion Jamie is a total d*ck. I won’t be going into details because I’ve always respected our privacy but at the same time I didn’t come to this country to not be able to express my opinion and freedom.”
Spears has been under the control of her dad since 2008 following a series of infamous public meltdowns. Although the singer has requested that Jamie be removed as her conservator, he has not stepped down and a court has not ordered him to relinquish control. Her battle for independence is ongoing.
Asghari and Spears first met in 2016 on the set of her music video for the hit song “Slumber Party” and began dating later that year. Although Asghari usually remains tight-lipped on his relationship with the pop icon, he broke his silence after the debut of the docuseries Framing Britney Spears, which shined a light on her troubled life and conservatorship battle.
As OK! previously reported, Asghari showered his girlfriend with praise and support, saying: "I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves."
In a statement, the 27-year-old added, "I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together."
While the couple keep their romance private, Spears and Asghari have shared pieces of their relationship on social media. "Okay baby, we get it. It's your birthday. We've been celebrating for a month. Let's move on," Asghari said in an Instagram video on Spears’ birthday in December and shared an adorable photo from their Hawaii vacation.
