Britney Spears is certainly stronger than yesterday.

The "Lucky" singer spoke ​to a superior court judge on June 23, about the mistreatment she has allegedly endured during her 13-year conservatorship led by father, Jamie ​Spears, 68. Britney powerfully stood her ground in a lengthy speech about why she believes she does not need a conservator anymore.

And, it turns out, her personal trainer boyfriend Sam Asghari, 27, has been right by Britney's side the whole time, empowering her to speak up.

One source close to Sam exclusively revealed to E! News, "Britney feels like the weight of the last decade or so is slowly but surely lifting off of her shoulders. She feels empowered beyond words, and a large part of that is Sam, who empowers her in every way and has been her rock throughout this entire ordeal since she decided to speak up. She is eternally thankful to have him in her corner."

Despite Sam's efforts, there are still "restrictions in their relationship," per the source.

"They are both fed up," the insider detailed. "Marriage is definitely something they have talked about and Sam would marry Britney immediately, if they were allowed. They are truly in love and Sam will always be there for her. They do have plans for the future but the first step is getting Britney out of the conservatorship."

Following Britney's comments in her hearing, Jamie's attorney said, "Mr. Spears is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain. Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much."
