Britney Spears might be going through “the hardest years” of her life, but it sounds like she has a pretty good partner to lean on. On Wednesday (Aug. 25), Spears took to Instagram to praise her boyfriend of five years Sam Asghari — while also jokingly calling him a “cute a–hole.”
“Not only has this cute a–hole been with me through the hardest years of my life but he happens to be an extremely good cook!” she wrote in the caption. “Fast & Furious franchise, don’t miss out on your next star!!!!”
Asghari was in on the joke, responding in the comments with a cry-laughing emoji: “Yes … F that a–hole.”
Spears and Asghari met on the 2016 set of her music video “Slumber Party” and the couple have been dating ever since.
The actor/model has been one of Spears’ biggest champions as she fights to end the conservatorship that has controlled her finances and personal life for the last 13 years. In February, he took aim at Britney’s dad and conservator Jamie Spears via Instagram after the premiere of The New York Times’ Framing Britney Spears documentary, writing on his Story: “Now it’s important for people to understand that I have zero respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way. In my opinion Jamie is a total d—.” Ahead of the June court hearing where Spears addressed the court in her conservatorship case for the first time, Asghari wore a “Free Britney” T-shirt and posted a lion emoji on his Instagram Story.
