Britney Spears is leaning on her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, as her conservatorship hearing nears.
The singer will face the judge and directly address the court this week to voice her feelings about the conservatorship she has been under since 2008. Britney is reportedly feeling “anxious” about her upcoming virtual appearance — and it’s Sam who has been putting her mind at ease.
“Sam has been a huge support for Britney. He helps boost her confidence and assures her that everything will go well,” a source told Page Six.
“He has been following the #FreeBritney movement online for a while now and always tells Britney how much she’s loved and supported by fans.”
The virtual hearing will take place at the Los Angeles County Superior Court and will also be attended by Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, who has been at the helm of the conservatorship since its inception. Britney is petitioning to remove her dad as sole conservator and has nominated independent trust company Bessemer Trust to manage her finances full-time.
“Britney is feeling anxious but prepared going into the hearing,” the source said. “People see her as this world-renowned pop star who commands the stage, but she is actually a shy person in real life, so she’s a bit nervous to face the judge.”
Due to the terms of her conservatorship, all of Britney’s personal and professional affairs are controlled by her father so it’s “a very sensitive and serious matter” for the singer.
“She wants everything to go according to plan,” the source said. “It’s very important to Britney that her voice is heard after 13 years of having other people speak for her.”
Britney has been dating Sam, a backup dancer and personal trainer, since 2016 after they met on the set of her ‘Slumber Party’ music video — and he has been her source of support ever since.
In February, Sam slammed Britney’s dad for being too controlling of his daughter.

“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,” Sam wrote.
“In my opinion, Jamie is a total d–k. I won’t be going into details because I’ve always respected our privacy but at the same time, I didn’t come to this country to not be able to express my opinion and freedom.”
