Following the FX docuseries The New York Times Presents airing its Feb. 5 episode "Framing Britney Spears," Sam Asghari released a statement to People to express his hopes for their future and to thank fans for sending well-wishes.
"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," the statement read. "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."
The harrowing episode focused on the situation surrounding the 39-year-old music superstar having been under the conservatorship of father Jamie Spears since 2008, meaning he has legal control of her personal and financial decisions. Despite the burgeoning #FreeBritney movement, a judge in November 2020 refused Britney's request to have Jamie removed from the conservatorship.
This has spurred a number of music stars and celebrities to voice concern and support for the "Piece of Me" singer in recent days, including Miley Cyrus, Kacey Musgraves and Hayley Williams.
Sam has been dating Britney for years since meeting her in late 2016 on the set of her music video for "Slumber Party." The 27-year-old personal trainer told E! News in January 2020 that the pair have strengthened their bond by exercising together.
"We work out a lot together. We run, we do a lot of yoga, we really challenge ourselves to do different types of exercises," he shared. "A lot of the yoga moves that she does I just can't do. She is a natural born athlete and she pushes herself, combining dancing along with various workouts."
