Pop star makes announcement on Instagram after her father agrees to withdraw as conservator of her $60 million fortune

“I can’t f***ing believe it,” Britney Spears wrote on an Instagram post, announcing she’s engaged to long-time boyfriend Sam Asghari. A video with the post shows the two hugging and mugging as Spears shows off the diamond ring she received from Asghari.

The announcement comes  three months after she told a Los Angeles judge that the conservatorship, led by her father, that has governed her life since 2008 was robbing her of the ability to make personal decisions. A week ago, Spears’ father, James, asked the court to allow him to withdraw as conservator of his daughter.

Brandon Cohen, a talent manager for Asghari, confirmed the engagement on Sunday night, the New York Times reported. “The couple made their longstanding relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,” Cohen said.
