What Sam Asghari Really Thinks Of Britney Spears' Father

As the world watches Britney Spears following the release of The New York Times: Framing Britney Spears documentary, it's clear that the people closest to her have a lot to say. Just a few hours after he issued a statement of support to his girlfriend of four years, Sam Asghari had more to share about his thoughts on Spears' conservatorship.

In the documentary episode, viewers watch as the songstress slowly loses her freedom after being harassed by paparazzi and suffering from a "breakdown" after which her father takes control of her finances and her person through a conservatorship. Yesterday, Asghari released a somewhat neutral statement to People, saying, "I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves." He continued, "I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together."

The actor and personal trainer met Spears while filming her "Slumber Party" music video in 2016 and the pair quietly began dating a year later, the outlet notes. Now, he's letting the world know how he really feels.

Sam Asghari says Jamie Spears is trying to control their relationship

In his Instagram stories, Asghari expressed his dismay over his girlfriend's father and his ability to control her life. "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 dick," he wrote (via Refinery 29). The Iranian-born actor also referenced his birthplace in the message, saying, "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."

The first time anyone close to Spears has revealed their true feelings about the situation, Asghari's comments seem to underpin the singer's claims that she is "scared of her dad," Rolling Stone reports. Fans have also speculated that Spears' Instagram posts serve as codes as to what's really going on in her world. The outlet reports that on Super Bowl Sunday, Spears wrote, "The moment we've all been waiting for last week...the Super Bowl," possibly referencing the documentary that has everyone talking.

As the #FreeBritney movement continues to gain steam, we'll see if Asghari finally gets to spend the quality time with his girlfriend that he wants — uninhibited by her father.
