Britney Spears’ boyfriend Sam Asghari is ‘a very positive influence on her’

Here are some photos of Britney Spears over the weekend. She’s been photographed out and about frequently in the past few months, we just haven’t had access to those photos here because they were always super-exclusive. These are not super-exclusive, which tells me that photo agencies expect to be seeing more of Britney in the weeks and months to come, and more Britney sightings will mean the price of those photos will be driven down (market forces!). Britney was out shopping with her boyfriend Sam Asghari this weekend, and she seemed sort of happy to see the paparazzi. The jeans tell me that Britney might not know what year it is.

For the last ten years, all of Britney’s boyfriends were thoroughly vetted by Jamie Spears. I tend to believe the guys were always told, upfront, what was allowed and what was not allowed. No talking about Britney in the press, no drugs, no drinking. Carefully staged dates, keep her happy, some overnight visits but no cohabitation. Going to the gym together is a plus. I also tend to believe that many of her boyfriends were getting paid, although I have nothing to back that up other than a general feeling. Sam was absolutely vetted by Jamie Spears when Sam and Britney started up three years ago. And Sam is sticking with Britney:

As Britney Spears continues to focus on her health, her boyfriend Sam Asghari is providing a strong shoulder to lean on. On Saturday, the singer, 37, stepped out for a dinner date with the model, 25, at Lure Fish House in Woodland Hills. And one day before, the couple picked up burgers at In-N-Out while shopping at an outlet mall.

“There is no question that Sam is great for Britney. He has a very positive influence on her,” a Spears family source tells PEOPLE exclusively. “He is very motivated to stay healthy and fit, and they often work out together.”

Asghari also often cooks healthy meals for the star, and “he is a wonderful boyfriend,” adds the source. As Spears’ mental health and long-held conservatorship has made its way back into the spotlight, Asghari has remained focused on the well-being of his girlfriend, who also spent time with her kids Sean, 13, and Jayden, 12, over the weekend.

“When Britney wasn’t doing well, Sam supported and encouraged Britney to seek help,” says the source. “It’s obvious that he really cares about her. Sam is such an important part of her life.”

I mean… maybe Sam isn’t so much looking for career opportunities as much as he’s playing a longer game – if Britney’s conservatorship is loosened or stopped, Britney will finally be able to legally marry. And that means Sam could… well, you know. I know I’m being harsh, ascribing all of this to him. CB believes he’s a good, decent guy who simply loves Britney and wants to help her, and he genuinely seems low-key and like he obviously sees Britney as the wounded bird she is. It’s more than possible that he genuinely cares about her and wants to see her healthy. But I have been warped by the general shadiness around Britney and the people in her life, and I can’t help but wonder there are many opportunistic hustlers around her at the moment.

    Let’s hope that Sam is a good guy. Britney deserves someone who truly cares about her.

  2. SuperStef says:

    I get a good feeling about this guy. He seems to be protective of her and I think she needs that. Plus they share a healthy lifestyle together. The age difference is interesting but Brit has always seemed a bit immature so maybe it works. He’s been around for a while now too. Love her, hope she’s well.

    • hunter says:

      Agree, whatever he’s up to he seems to be playing a clean game.

      I liked his body language in the video where she is coming out of the mental health unit. he was very protective. Seems older than 25 and that’s good too.

  3. L84Tea says:

    Maybe I’m just a negative Nancy, but she’s 37 years old, has two children, and is dealing with ongoing, years-long heavy medical and mental health issues, not to mention legal issues out the ying-yang. How is some 25 year old model supposed to be the sent-from-heaven positive force in her life? This has red flags all over it.

    • Emily says:

      I guess I’m negative, too. Handsome, young guy, but if what we’re learning about Britney’s conservatorship is true, when you boil it all down she’s essentially living like a teenager. What kind of man would want to date that?

    • Originaltessa says:

      I don’t think Britney herself deals with any of these issues and the people around her made it so that all she had to do was work out and do her shows. She visits with her kids, but isn’t raising them. A 25 year old could handle that. A more age appropriate man probably finds her very immature.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I think Britney herself is immature, she always came across like that to me. She seems stuck in her heyday particularly as she still dresses like she did back then.

  4. Lenn says:

    It fascinates me how she sticks to the 90’s with her wardrobe.
    The guy seems fine but also not the most intelligent man on the planet.

    • Meg says:

      I always wondered if her casual day off style was out of date because she has limited access to the internet as part of her conservatorship like child safety blocks people with kids put on their family iPads and computers etc because I remember reading a magazine article that said she showed up atghe photoshoot with a stereo and old 90s CDs as opposed to an iPhone or iPod with older music in it. I fear she is extremely sheltered

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Apparently one of the restrictions put on her is that she’s not allowed a smartphone, for fear of what she’d do and who’d she’d speak to if she did. It came out in the recent press reports that she desperately wanted an iPhone but her father would not let her have one.

  5. manda says:

    I tend to take the position that this probably isn’t good for her. He might be a good person but what kind of person gets into a relationship like this? I don’t know all the details and because of that I am skeptical

  6. olive says:

    whew, those low-rise jeans – britney may be one of the few women who miss that trend. her fashion sense has always been stuck in the early 00s though.

    • Channy says:

      Serious question, are these considered low rise? Because my pregnancy jeans (which I’m still wearing 6 months post) look a lot like this and I’m 38… what’s in fashion now? Suddenly feeling old.

  7. ChillyWilly says:

    “The jeans tell me that Britney might not know what year it is.”
    Word! Britney has some serious arrested development going on.
    I don’t trust this guy either. I think he is being paid to be her companion/babysitter. I hope I’m wrong.

  8. stephanie says:

    If she is so low functioning that she has to be in a conservatorship, how is it okay for her to be in a sexual/romantic relationship with someone who is “normal” and high functioning? This seems extremely predatory. She can’t even take care of basic hygiene like brushing her hair and washing her face based on recent photos.

    I really think this “relationship” is a delusion on Britney’s end and this guy Sam is probably a paid bodyguard/platonic special needs aid.

    • Megan says:

      I think Brittney’s hair always looks terrible due to over processing and crappy hair extensions. The last time her hair looked healthy those jeans were in style.

  9. Aeval says:

    I wish her nothing but the best, but what in the 2001 hip-hugger hell is she wearing?

  10. blinkers says:

    I always felt like Britney had a hand in picking this guy. He’s much more her physical type/look than the other boyfriends before, they’re into the same things (fitness), and as a model he has a schedule that allows him to do his outside stuff but also be around for her schedule. Didn’t the other boyfriends basically drop their outside jobs? Anyway, hope it’s for real. It doesn’t seem like a crazy age difference to me.

  11. MrsPanda says:

    Oh Brit, with those jeans!! Totally 00′s jeans, I remember them well. I think a high rise pair would have looked lovely and modernised that outfit, giving her more length also. As for Sam, I’m also cynical of people around her but I get a calm vibe off him, he has a gentle face. Perhaps they could have an arrangement that works for them, I really hope he’s a good guy.

  12. Lea says:

    I’ve noticed that Jamie Lynn Spears has just started following him on Instagram and liking Britney’s posts with him in the picture so I think he must have recently proved that he was somewhat reliable, even to Lynn and Jamie Lynn.
    I think he was mostly motivated by money and fame, just like Kfed was. He is probably playing the long term game.

  13. ClaireB says:

    I don’t know anything about Britney and this guy, but I do know from my grandparents that sometimes people who are into you for your money can also love, care for, and be loyal to you. My step-grandfather was a younger man who married my grandmother (with a mother and a child in college to support) even though she was a word class passive-aggressive, demanding b****. He never worked at anything except his own race car hobby, and I don’t know how much money “they” poured into that. She brought in all the cash and they lived pretty well.

    And you know what? He cared about her and stuck with her through strokes, incapability, and finally death. I don’t begrudge him the money, because he put in the hard work in the rest of their lives and still tries to be a good grandfather to me. So I hope that even if Britney’s boyfriends are vetted or paid, this one still cares about her and wants to support her as best he can.

  14. Coincidental says:

    He seems nice! And he wasn’t always a model, he had a weight problem when he was younger. Maybe Britney was his dream girl back then, and he feels like his dreams have come true. He just has a kindness about him. I’ve been on his Instagram and while Britney makes the odd appearance it really doesn’t feel like he exploits her for attention. I’m typically very cynical but I can’t help it, I like him.
