In fact, a source familiar with the situation told NBC News, “They’re separated and it’s best for Britney.”
E! News reached out to Britney and Sam’s reps for comment on the split but hasn’t heard back.
The pop star and the fitness trainer’s breakup puts an end to their seven-year love story, which began when the pair first met on the set of her 2016 music video, “Slumber Party.”
“I kept his number, and it was so weird because it was like five months later that I found his number in my bag,” Britney told CBS radio station AMP 103.7 in January 2017. “I was like ‘He was really cute. This guy was really cute!’ so then I called him. He is just a really fun, funny person.”
In the following years, Sam stood by Britney’s side as she navigated legal battles related to her conservatorship, with a source telling E! News in June 2021 that the Black Monday actor had been her “rock throughout this entire ordeal since she decided to speak up.”
