I’m free to wed! Britney’s £50k sparkler

- By Jennifer Ruby Showbusine­ss News Editor

BRITNEY Spears showed off a diamond ring to reveal she is engaged to her long-term boyfriend just days after her father asked to step down from controllin­g her estate.

The pop star, 39, had told a court that she had been blocked from getting married by the strict conservato­rship.

But, with the court anguish behind her, the jubilant singer flashed the large gem in an Instagram video and told her 34 million followers: ‘I can’t f ****** believe it.’ Her boyfriend Sam Asghari, 27, is thought to have spent around £50,000 on the four-carat solitaire with ‘Lioness’, his pet name for Miss Spears, engraved on the band.

The Iranian actor has dated the singer for four years and will be her third husband. Miss Spears, the mother of two teenage boys, fought a long legal battle to remove father Jamie, 69, as her conservato­r.

At one emotional hearing, she said she wanted to marry Asghari and have his children but was being stopped from doing so.
