Britney Spears took society’s center stage again yesterday. But this time it wasn’t over her conservatorship struggle. This time, she got engaged!
Britney Spears and her boyfriend Sam Asghari, whom she met in 2016 on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video, shared the news of their engagement on Instagram yesterday.
In a short video, Britney shows off her custom diamond ring. Asghari asks Britney if she likes it, to which she enthusiastically responds “Yes!”. Britney wrote in the caption, “I can’t f*cking believe it!!!!!”
Asghari worked with New York City jewelers Forever Diamonds to create the custom engagement ring. He “selected a 4 carat round brilliant stone in a platinum cathedral setting. He enhanced this timeless floating solitaire design with pavé detailing on the bridge and flush set diamonds on the prongs and basket, adding a sentimental touch by engraving ‘Lioness,’ his personal nickname for her, on the inside of the band.”
Forever Diamonds commented, “A ring worthy of the Lioness herself, we have named this stunning setting The Britney...On behalf of Roman Malayev and the Forever Diamonds NY team, we are thrilled to congratulate Britney Spears and Sam Asghari on their recent engagement. We couldn’t feel more honored to create this ring for such a special couple. Their journey together has touched people around the world and we're so excited to be a part of their Forever.”
Asghari also shared an engagement announcement on Instagram. He posted a photo of he and Britney kissing that features the ring in the foreground.
As the congratulations rolled in, so did the advice. The Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer commented on Britney’s post: “Make him sign a prenup.”
Asghari had a couple of things to say to that. He directly replied to Spencer with the 100 emoji.
But he also responded via his Instagram story with a bit of humor, writing, “Thank you everyone who is concerned about the prenup! Of course we're getting iron clad prenup to protect my jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day."
Britney’s engagement – and we’re assuming her soon-to-be nuptials – are likely in response to her father, Jamie Spears, filing to end the 13-year conservatorship that Britney has been fighting for several years now.
