Sam Asghari is ending claims that he is now in control of his wife, Britney Spears, a year after her conservatorship ended.
When asked if he “controls Britney,” he told TMZ on Friday, “No, I don’t even control what we have for dinner.”
“You know, in the past a lot has happened, so I understand where [fans are] derived from.”
“They are just protective. On the contrary, they are good fans, ”added the 28-year-old model.
While Asghari said his wife, 41, is in control of her own life, several fans shared some interesting theories regarding the “Gimme More” singer’s recent behavior online, sparking the hashtag #WhereIsBritney.
After the pop star deactivated her Instagram earlier this month, her husband took to his own account and shared a message about how “traumatic” social media can be.
“Sometimes it’s good to take a break,” Asghari wrote on her Instagram Stories on December 7. “She has her voice and she is a free woman. I respect her privacy and protect her at all times. Thank you to all her protective fans.
After Spears reactivated her account, several TikTokers speculated that a lookalike of the “Toxic” singer had been used in new posts from her and Asghari.
Fans also questioned her new captions, which were extremely shorter than the long ones she usually posts.
Earlier this month, Asghari defended his wife from criticism for sharing nude images on social media.
“The only person in the world getting harassed for posting stuff like this,” he commented on Instagram at the time, while admitting how he really felt about NSFW posts.
“I personally preferred that she never published them, but who am I to control someone who has been under a microscope and controlled for most of their life,” the actor added. of “Lioness”.
Spears and Asghati tied the knot at the singer’s California home in June, eight months after her controversial conservatorship ended.
