Britney Spears’ boyfriend Sam Asghari tested positive for Covid-19.
The 26-year-old fitness model credited his “healthy lifestyle” with helping him deal with the respiratory illness, as he revealed he had just one day of “common cold symptoms” after his positive test.
Writing on Instagram this week, he said: “2020 has been a crazy/twisted year for all of us. Recently I tested positive for Covid-19, I was lucky enough to catch the news before being around and infecting my loved ones (friends, family, significant other).
“I quickly isolated myself and started my quarantine process alone…
“This is where my healthy lifestyle helped a lot, I only had 1 day of common cold symptoms day 2 after testing positive but 24 hours later I was perfectly normal. I continued my workouts and clean nutrition at home as usual.”
Sam – who has been dating the ‘Toxic’ hitmaker since 2016 – revealed he “tested negative twice” after being in quarantine for 10 days, and insisted he wanted to “inspire” his social media followers to take care of their own bodies.
He continued: “10 days later I was no longer contagious, and tested negative twice and was cleared by doctors to end quarantine and return to my loved ones…
“I spend a lot of time cleansing And thinking about how important our health is in General even outside of Covid, at the end of our lives one of the most important things will be health, I will continue to do my best and inspire you guys to also live a healthy lifestyle. (sic)”
His post comes as Britney, 38, has spent most of this year in a legal battle with her father, Jamie Spears, over the terms of her conservatorship, which she has been under since her public breakdown in 2008.
Britney no longer wants her father in control of her life and career, but Jamie believes his daughter isn’t fit to make her own decisions.
Most recently, a judge in their case declined to suspend Jamie from his role in Britney’s conservatorship, but said she would consider future petitions for his suspension or removal.
