The Blast is told Britney and Sam were in communication via phone Tuesday despite her checking into a mental health facility last week.
The pop star is currently seeking treatment after her emotions spiraled following her dad's illness. As we reported, Jamie Spears nearly died after his colon ruptured last year and Britney postponed her Vegas residency to take care of him. Sources close to the situation say he's much worse and Spears was unable to cope, but they insist she's not in a hospital.
Fans have questioned whether Spears and Asghari were still together ever since Brit took a 3-month break from social media this year. She also pulled back on sharing her relationship with the actor, and fans began to think they had split.
We're told that despite the social media absence, the two are still very much dating.
As we reported, since Spears has been receiving treatment, baby daddy Kevin Federline has taken “90% custody” of the former couple’s two children, Sean and Jayden. We've learned K-Fed is planning to take the pop princess back to court for more money now that he's taking the lead on time with the kids.
