Britney Spears's boyfriend Sam Asghari thanks her fans as #FreeBritney movement builds

Britney Spears's longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, is making a rare public statement after the new documentary about her has amplified the #FreeBritney Movement.

“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 fitness trainer and actor told People magazine. “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.”

This is the first comment from the Family Business actor on the topic of the “...Baby One More Time” singer’s conservatorship, which is a focus of the New York Times Presents... documentary Framing Britney Spears. The film, which airs on FX and FX on Hulu, looks at the mistreatment the pop star faced from the media amid her stardom in the aughts, culminating in her public breakdown in 2008. That year, she was placed in a conservatorship reserved for incapacitated individuals — overseen by her father, Jamie Spears — and she has been trying to oust him as co-conservator of her business since last year.

While Spears is reportedly “aware” of the doc — which makes sense, as she presumably gave Asghari the green light to issue a statement — but she has not watched it.Since the release of the doc, many celebrities have joined the cry to #FreeBritney, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Andy Cohen. And viewers have called for many featured in the doc to apologize to Spears for past mistreatment of her, including her ex-boyfriend Justine Timberlake as well as Matt Lauer and Dianne Sawyer for shaming interviews.

Spears — who has two sons with ex-Kevin Federline — has been dating Asghari since soon after meeting on the set of her “Slumber Party” video in 2016. They frequently share photos with one another on social media, including vacations and workout sessions.
