Beyond remaining fairly optimistic about her home gym situation, Spears shared that she missed her personal trainer boyfriend, Sam Asghari, and that she has had to work on weight loss training without him amidst quarantine.

"I have been quarantining since I got back from Louisiana weeks ago …. so basically I haven’t seen my boyfriend @samasghari in what feels like a lifetime!!!! I have actually lost weight from missing him …. now none of my pants or shorts fit!!!!! Guess that’s what missing someone can do…. who else is experiencing this ????!" She wrote to fans.


Although Spears and her boyfriend haven't been around each other for a good few weeks now, the star has been keeping busy in her own ways. Back in April, she spent some time with her family in Louisiana, but has since been quarantining by herself at home.

"She just wants to be safe in quarantine and doesn’t want to risk anything, so she’s just taking precautions," a source told E! News

"They are communicating daily on FaceTime [but] there isn’t a timeline yet for them to reunite," the source continued.
