Britney Spears announces engagement to Sam Asghari

Britney Spears has announced her engagement to her long-term boyfriend, Sam Asghari.

The singer posted a video of the couple showing off the ring on Instagram.

Spears is fighting a legal battle to end her 13-year conservatorship, which controls both her personal life and finances.

She revealed that the terms of the arrangement were preventing her from marrying Mr Asghari or having more children.

The conservatorship arrangement was imposed in 2008 when concerns were raised over the singer’s mental health.

Mr Asghari posted a separate photo of the ring and the couple kissing.

His manager, Brandon Cohen, confirmed news of the engagement to People magazine.

“The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,” he said.

The couple met on the set of a music video in 2016.
