Britney was freed from her conservatorship last week, over a month after her father Jamie was suspended as conservator of her estate. 

While speaking to Variety this week Sam shared: ‘I am so happy for her and I’ve been a backbone for her as much as I could, but this is all on her.’

He added: ‘She’s been a rock. She inspires me. She loves her fans. So you know, all the fans and her effort, kind of make this become, you know, possible.’

Sam was ‘absolutely’ certain she would prevail, saying: ‘It’s amazing for me to feel the love for her and for her to see how many people love her because of the love that she gave other people. They’re just giving it back to her.’

Sam wore Versace to the House Of Gucci premiere and said there that Donatella has been ‘so kind,’ adding: ‘Britney loves her.’ 

He and Britney have been engaged since at least September, when they took the news public, and he is slated to become her third husband.

Her first husband was her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander whom she was married to for just 55 hours before they split up.

Britney’s second ex-husband is the rapper Kevin Federline with whom she shares her two sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15.

According to a TMZ report this week her former conservator of person Jodi Montgomery has put together some advice for Britney as she returns to normal life.

The guidelines, which Jodi assembled with the help of medical professionals, are just suggestions and Britney can choose not to take them.

One proposal is that she not drink, yet she revealed on Instagram that last weekend she enjoyed her ‘first glass of champagne’ – reportedly in 14 years.

Jodi has also advised that Britney be careful while driving, noting that in September the Toxic singer was caught going 62 mph in a 40 mph zone.

The California Highway Patrol confirmed to TMZ that they did indeed pull Britney over for speeding, but apparently she was let off with a warning.

Britney’s driving privileges were restored to her this July after being almost totally rescinded when her conservatorship began in 2008.

Before that she was photographed driving with her infant son in her lap, caught on camera running red lights and accused of running over a paparazzo’s toes. 

Britney’s conservatorship lasted 13 years, dating back to her notorious breakdown that occurred in 2007 and 2008.

During that period she infamously shaved her head completely bald and whaled on a on a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella.

The situation came to a head when the authorities and paramedics arrived at Britney’s house one day in January 2008 because she was defying a court order to turn over her young sons to their father Kevin Federline.

A standoff reportedly took place during which Britney was alleged to have barricaded herself in a bathroom with one or both of her children.

The following month Jamie succeeded in obtaining an emergency temporary conservatorship that was made permanent later in the year.

Since her legal victory over her father this September, Britney has accused her mother Lynne of having been the true mastermind behind the conservatorship.

Last week she posted and then deleted a blistering Instagram post telling her mother: ‘You know exactly what you did.’

Britney claimed: ‘Pssss my dad may have started the conservatorship 13 years ago … but what people don’t know is that my mom is the one who gave him the idea !!!!’
