It's time for some well-deserved R&R. The day after sharing her truth in court, Britney Spears set off for a Hawaiian vacation to unwind with her boyfriend.

The "Lucky" singer and trainer Sam Asghari flew on a private jet to Maui in the morning on Thursday, June 24, an eyewitness exclusively tells E! News.

"Britney looked very happy and excited to be going back to Hawaii," reveals the witness. "She was giddy and all smiles as she landed on the island."

The couple headed to her favorite resort on the island for check-in, and then they went straight to the pool. Per the witness, they had fresh fruit juice in their hands and "looked relaxed and happy." 

Britney, 39, and Sam, 27, sat side-by-side on chaise lounges at the pool, while they talked and laughed at their conversation. At one point, Britney closed her eyes to take a nap.

The source continues, "They thought about heading down to the beach, but it looked very crowded so they stayed at the pool. Britney looked like she was in her happy place in a pink bikini at the pool getting some sun."

Britney Spears & Sam Asghari: Romance Rewind

They stayed for about an hour before going back to their room for the rest of the day, the insider adds. 

Just one day before, Britney appeared at a virtual court hearing, where E! News was present, as she told all about her "abusive" conservatorship. "I haven't done anything in the world to deserve this treatment," she testified. "It's not OK to force me to do anything I don't want to do."

She also said she wants to get married and have a baby, presumably with Sam, but is prohibited from removing her birth control. "I haven't done anything in the world to deserve this treatment," she told the judge. "It's not OK to force me to do anything I don't want to do." 

In response, a lawyer for her father, Jamie Spears, who is co-conservator of her estate, read the statement: "Mr. Spears is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain. Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much." 

On the day Britney set off for Hawaii, she penned a letter on social media, apologizing for "pretending" to be fine all these years. 

As the pop star wrote, "I don't want people to think my life is perfect because IT'S DEFINITELY NOT AT ALL … and if you have read anything about me in the news this week … you obviously really know now it's not !!!!" She went on, "I apologize for pretending like I've been ok the past two years... I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me … but honestly who doesn't want to capture there Instagram in a fun light."

For his part, Sam took to Instagram to share funny videos of the couple on their flight to the Aloha state, as they posed with dog filters. "You're welcome," the fitness mogul wrote

In addition to being her travel partner, Sam has been by Britney's side throughout her court battle. He made his stance known ahead of the hearing, when he posted a selfie in a Free Britney T-shirt. 

A separate source close to Sam told E! News this week, "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."

The pair first met in 2016 on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video.
