Britney Spears' boyfriend Sam Asghari opens up about their relationship in Men's Health



Britney Spears' boyfriend and current boy toy Sam Asghari was born on March 4, 1994 in Tehran, Iran, and is the youngest of four (he has three sisters). He was a former football player, but was cut from The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Division his freshman year. Shortly after losing his scholarship, he was forced to move back to Los Angeles. No longer working out for football combined with poor eating habits, he got fat.

Sam Asghari on his poor diet at the age of 19 and depression: “I was eating Doritos for breakfast, fast food, sugar, candy, no protein, a lot of carbs, and drinking sugary sodas. My nutrition was extremely horrible. The stress and the fear of not going anywhere [in life] combined gave me my depression.”

Asghari's depression continued as well as his poor eating habits, and he ended up reaching 290lbs at his heaviest. In 2013, he knew something had to change. He started working out again and eating right and lost 100lbs in six months.

• The glow up was real and his healthy lifestyle changed his life that ultimately led him to modeling and acting. In 2016, he was cast as the male lead in Britney Spears' “Slumber Party” music video which featured singer iigoru Tinashe.

• “I was excited that I get to meet one of the biggest artists of all time. I had butterflies.” In between takes, to BreakTheIce.mp3 between him and Spears, he would joke around with her. “She said, ‘Hi, I’m Britney,' and I said, ‘I’m sorry. What’s your name again?’” [Laughs] “I tried to be funny. I don’t think anybody got it.” The two then exchanged phone numbers on set, which lead to a sushi dinner date. Spears and Asghari have been dating for nearly two years now.

• So what's Sam's favorite Spears tune, anyways? It's “Stronger.”
