Spears may be head over heels for Asghari, but there’s one person in her life who may not approve of her new man: her dad, Jamie. And, unfortunately, this is no small thing. After agreeing to a conservatorship following her infamous breakdown, the hitmaker has not legally been in control of her own financial, professional, and personal affairs since 2008 — her father has.
“Britney’s dad does not like this guy at all,” a source told Radar Online in December 2016. According to an insider’s report to the British magazine Heat, Jamie “has some reservations and is worried that [Asghari] may be after her money” (via the Belfast Telegraph).
As to be expected, Spears is reportedly upset at both her father’s control of her finances and his opinion of her boyfriend. “Brit’s getting fed up of being told what she can and cannot do. The conservatorship was put in place when she was very sick, but that was over 10 years ago,” Heat‘s insider said. “Her dad might not be too sure about Sam’s intentions, but Britney is.”
