Britney Spears' Fiance Sam Asghari Cheers Her Dad's Suspension as Conservator: 'Free Britney!'

Minutes after an L.A. judge granted Britney Spears' petition to suspend her dad, Jamie Spears, as conservator of her estate, the pop star's fiancé, Sam Asghari, took to Instagram to celebrate the news.

"Free Britney! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!" Asghari wrote Wednesday (Sept. 29) on his Instagram Story, later adding alongside a photo of a lioness, "She did this. Her fan base is called the army for a reason."

He posted another lioness photo on his IG feed too, with the caption: "The power of the lioness!!!!! #freebritney."

Asghari has been a fierce supporter of Spears' as she fights for an end to the conservatorship that has controlled her personal and professional lives for the past 13 years, including her desire for her dad to step down.

In February, the actor/model -- who asked Spears to marry him last month after five years together -- took aim at Jamie Spears via Instagram after the premiere of The New York TimesFraming Britney Spears documentary, writing on his Story: "Now it's important for people to understand that I have zero respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way. In my opinion Jamie is a total d---." Ahead of the June court hearing where Spears addressed the court in her conservatorship case for the first time, Asghari wore a "Free Britney" T-shirt and posted a lion emoji on his Instagram Story.

Asghari has also been vocal over the past few weeks about the barrage of new documentaries about Spears' conservatorship, explaining his thoughts on each one.

Spears and Asghari met on the 2016 set of her music video "Slumber Party" and got engaged to be married on Sept. 12.
