BRITNEY Spears’ fiancé Sam Ashgari has responded to hilarious remarks that he was a young autograph hunter in an old video.
Footage of a young boy asking for the singing sensation’s signature back in 2000 went viral as fans likened the child in the video to Sam, 27.
The personal trainer took to his social media to shut down speculation that he had gone to meet Britney, 39, in his younger years.
Sam posted the video of the young boy sitting on the lap of the Toxic singer and getting an autograph signed to his Instagram stories.
“You want a picture with me? I just want to pinch you!” Britney can be heard asking the young boy. “Look at the camera and say cheese!”
The videographer goes on to zoom in on the child’s smiling face as Britney asks him: “Can you call me when you’re older? Do you promise?”
Fans likened the sweet boy to her current fiancé Sam – but he was quick to clear up any rumours it could be him in the clip.
“Just want to clear things out, this is not me,” he wrote alongside laughing emojis. “I had facial hair, I was 6’2 and spoke 5 different languages at this age.”
Admitting he could see a likeness, he went on to share a screen shot of the young boy alongside a childhood photo of himself at the same age.
“But seriously wtf?” he captioned the follow-up snaps, in which he clarified which boy was “me” and “not me” for reference.
Sam and Britney announced their engagement news on social media as the star showed off her huge diamond ring earlier this month.
The Circus singer jokingly slammed her “a**hole” fiancé for his “way overdue” proposal but admitted it was “worth the wait.”
The Toxic singer shared a sexy snapshot of her hunky fiancé as he posed shirtless and showed off his ripped muscles for Men’s Health magazine.
She cheekily pointed to the Men’s Health photo and gushed that the “beautiful f**king man in that picture is MINE!”
After five years of dating, the Crossroads actress mentioned that their engagement “was way overdue” but “definitely worth the wait.”
Recently, a source exclusively told The Sun that Sam “did not ask permission to propose to Britney from her dad Jamie.”
The insider alleged that he had spoken: “with her attorney, Mathew, to make sure legally, it was something that would not hurt Britney.”
The source mentioned that he “essentially got Mathew’s approval,” which referred to Mathew Rosengar – Britney’s newly-appointed attorney.
It comes after Britney won a major victory in her conservatorship war with Jamie Spears, 69, so she could get married after years of allegedly being banned from doing so.
Her father officially filed to step down as her conservator after about 13 years of having control over her estate and personal matters.
Jamie asked the judge to terminate the conservatorship without another mental evaluation.
SORTING THE PRENUP
Meanwhile, Britney’s legal team have turned their attentions to “drafting a prenup” just days after her engagement news was announced.
Sources told TMZ that Britney has already taken the steps to work on a prenup to protect her net worth, which is reportedly around $60 million.
While she’s not making nearly as much as she did while she was performing, the Toxic singer is still raking in a considerable income that she will want to protect.
Sources told the outlet the singer’s attorney Mathew Rosengart is involved, although it’s unlikely he’ll write the prenup and will instead end up with a family law attorney.
