Is Britney Spears getting dumped by her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, while she's in a mental health facility? That's the claim being made by one of this week's celebrity magazines. Gossip Cop, however, can exclusively bust this falsehood. We're assured it's "incorrect."
According to the National Enquirer, Spears' boyfriend "wants out" of their relationship. Playing off one of the singer's hits, the supermarket tabloid contends her and Asghari's "romance has turned 'Toxic.'" To make its tale seem credible, the often debunked publication alleges it has an "insider" who shares, "Sam's not thrilled with the prospect of nurse-maiding Britney back from the brink again." "He's also feeling in over his head by taking on the responsibility of helping to raise her two sons," adds the supposed source.
After noting how the two met on the set of Spears' music video for "Slumber Party" back in 2016, the outlet has its anonymous and unaccountable "insider" maintain, "They moved very fast and they've had their ups and down." "Brit's been a lot for Sam to handle and he's looking to get off this rollercoaster," concludes the questionable tipster.
There are so many flaws in the outlet's article it's difficult to know where to begin. In no particular order, the frequently discredited publication, which now claims their relationship is a "rollercoaster" and that the fitness model is "looking to get off" of it, swore up and down a little more than a year ago that Spears and Asghari were planning a wedding in Las Vegas. In that phony report, the magazine insisted the two were in the process of "writing their vows."
That, of course, brings us to traditional wedding vows in which grooms and brides promise to support and love each other "in sickness and in health." And while the outlet previously asserted Asghari was so in love with Spears that he was going to marry her, regardless of any other issues, now the tabloid does an about-face and states their romance has been nothing less than a "rollercoaster" and he "wants out." Just days later, the Enquirer's sister publication, Star, went further and (wrongly) announced Spears and Asghari had gotten engaged. And by the end of the year, its other sister magazine, OK!, alleged Spears and Asghari were imminently getting married in Louisiana.
Of course, none of the marriage talk was true. Also 100 percent false is the narrative about Asghari not wanting to take on the "responsibility of helping to raise her two sons," Sean Preston and Jayden James. It would never fall on Asghari. As she remains in treatment, in the wake of her father's ailing health, Spears' kids are being taken care of by their dad, Kevin Federline, with whom she's co-parented for years.
It seems the tabloid was so hellbent on pushing its phony premise about the model wanting to dump Spears, that it left out some key facts, including how Federline is the boys' father and often their primary caregiver. More significantly, the singer's boyfriend has remained extremely committed to her. Two weeks ago, Asghari shared on Instagram how he was "inspired" by Spears checking into a wellness center. And last Saturday, Asghari posted on Instagram a series of videos of him kissing Spears to celebrate International Kissing Day, confirming his unwavering love and support for her.
Notwithstanding all the provably inaccurate elements in the magazine's article, Gossip Cop still checked in with a longtime Spears confidant, who's also grown to know Asghari over the past two-plus years, and we're assured the entire story is "incorrect." The only ones who should truly be dumped at this point are the tabloid's Spears sources for continuing to feed it completely wrong information about her and her boyfriend.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
