Why hasn't Sam Asghari proposed to Britney Spears? Couple returns from Maui without ring
Britney Spears' conservatorship battle has been the talk of the year ever since the #FreeBritney brigade began. What had started with social media followers asking the pop star to wear a certain color of outfit to indicate if she was in danger, soon turned into a movement where media, fashion, and pop culture watchdogs campaigned for the singer to be released from her conservatorship of her father, Jamie Spears. The conservatorship doesn't allow Britney to even so much as drive, and as she told a judge at her most recent conservatorship hearing, a birth control device is being enforced on her allegedly.
Britney was denied freedom from her father's conservatorship, but since then, her father also denied the birth control claims, saying he has no say in her life when it comes to children or marriage. So when Britney and her boyfriend of four years, Sam Asghari, whisked away on a private jet together to Maui last week, speculation and anticipation were high about a proposal on the cards. Asghari has been with Britney ever since her return to popularity and is seen as one of the most beloved, supportive boyfriends in the entertainment industry. Alas, to fans' dismay, there was no ring dazzling on Spears' finger as she returned from Maui.

Sources with direct knowledge also told TMZ that Asghari not only didn't pop the question at their romantic getaway, but he is yet to even so much as attempt to get engaged. Of course, the couple has talked about it, sources told the outlet, but nothing ever materialized into a proper proposal. The couple are back in Los Angeles already but nary a ring in sight.
The timing of this vacation was perhaps why everybody speculated things would end in a romantic proposal where Asghari finally pops the question to the mother of two. It came right after Britney gave her near-20-minute-long testimony to the judge at her conservatorship hearing, where she alleged that her father, her manager, and even her shrink administered measures to keep her freedom at bay. Britney, who frantically spoke at rapid speed, told the judge that she had been living under their control for the last 13 years.
The bombshell allegations where Britney accused her father (by extension) of drugging her and forcing her to wear an IUD as birth control, have since been denied by him. TMZ reports conservators don't really have legal authority to stop their conservatees from marrying or having a baby. If that were the case, and Jamie is speaking the truth, one of social media's strongest grounds of sympathies for Britney and Asghari will stand refuted.
When Britney had made the appeal to the judge, social media's immediate takeaway from the IUD chapter was that her father is the reason why she and Asghari can't get married and be a family. But as her father's words come to light, and it seems like Asghari doesn't have any legal bindings stopping him from popping the question, Asghari might be put under closer scrutiny of her fans who are an ardent and loyal bunch indeed. Britney, however, is constantly gushing about her amazing boyfriend, and every time they make a public appearance, he looks smitten with her, so critics can back off a little. They seem beyond happy.
