Britney Spears’ boyfriend Sam Asghari took to social media on Wednesday (Dec. 23) to share that he recently came down with, and recovered from, a mild case of COVID-19.
“2020 has been a crazy/twisted year for all of us,” the fitness model captioned the lengthy Instagram post. “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.”
After ensuring followers he hadn’t passed the virus along to Spears, Asghari credited his “healthy lifestyle” with helping him bounce back and make a full recovery, adding that he had even kept his stringent fitness routine while ill.
“I only had 1 day of common cold symptoms day 2 after testing positive but 24 hours later I was perfectly normal,” he continued. “I continued my workouts and clean nutrition at home as usual. 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,” he concluded, promising his 1.5 million followers, “I will continue to do my best and inspire you guys to also live a healthy lifestyle.”
Back in November, Asghari jetted off to Hawaii on an early birthday trip for Spears, who celebrated turning 39 on Dec. 2 amid the ongoing legal drama with her father, Jamie Spears, over the status of her controversial conservatorship.
