The couple got married in June 2022 after first getting together in 2016 on the set of Spears‘ “Slumber Party” music video.

However, sources told PEOPLE in February that Spears’ close friends and family had “grown concerned.”

In March, there were rumours going around that the pair was having marital problems. However, Asghari’s representative, Brandon Cohen from BAC Talent, dispelled them at the time.

Cohen told PEOPLE that Asghari had taken off his wedding band because he was filming a movie, in response to pictures that appeared to show Asghari and Spears without them.

Asghari said in November that he had been cast in the television series Lioness, which is directed by Taylor Sheridan, albeit it was unclear what feature he was shooting at the time.

Asghari assisted the pop artist with her mental health treatment in 2019 prior to their marriage.

In April 2019, Spears entered a facility for “all-encompassing wellness treatment,” and Asghari became more involved in helping Spears navigate her father’s medical emergency.

According to a Spears family source who spoke to PEOPLE, “Sam is unquestionably fantastic for Britney. He’s had a really good effect on her. They frequently work out together since he is highly driven to maintain his physical fitness.”

Asghari has also stood behind Spears in her fight for conservatorship.

Following her remarks at a June 2021 conservatorship hearing in Los Angeles, the pop star called Judge Brenda Penny and spent thirty minutes saying, “I’m not happy.”

I have trouble falling asleep.

I’m feeling down. Before the hearing, Asghari shared a picture of himself wearing a #FreeBritney T-shirt on his Instagram Story.

The insider told PEOPLE that Asghari had been the singer’s “rock.” I cry every day.

For many years, Sam has been Britney’s rock. Regarding Spears’s boyfriend at the time, the insider claims, “He makes sure that she works out and eats well.”

“She depends entirely on him. He is as present as he can be, even if he works and leads a separate life.
