The #FreeBritney movement has been making headlines for years, and some of Britney Spears’ boyfriends, including David Lucado, have been vocal about her conservatorship.

In 2016, and even though Lucado and Spears were no longer a couple, he admitted the pop icon no longer needed people controlling her estate, finances, and life altogether.

Lucado pointed out that if people knew the “real Britney” and could see her interactions with her children, Sean and Jayden, they would understand that a conservator was unnecessary.

LUCADO’S LIFE BEFORE SPEARS

For those who don’t remember David Lucado, he was Britney Spears’ boyfriend for a year and a half. He was born and raised in Virginia and was a very talented golfer in high school.

According to his coach back then, Jim Eanes, Lucado could have played college golf. Some of his golfer friends confessed he was a Top-two or Top-three golfer at their school.

Another friend revealed Lucado was known as “Lucky” because he could pull out some difficult shots. Spears' ex-boyfriend didn’t attend college, though, so he couldn’t pursue a career in sports.

His kind personality and golf skills attracted Jim Wilmouth’s attention. Wilmouth, the former owner of a carwash, was one player short to complete a foursome in a competition, so he invited 14-year-old Lucado over.

Lucado kept helping and treating an elderly man respectfully throughout the day, so Wilmouth considered he needed a person like him in his business and hired him. Wilmouth said:

"When he worked for me, I always wished my kids could be like him. He put a friendly face on [and] was a great employee. I learned a lot from him."

LUCADO AND SPEARS’ RELATIONSHIP

Britney Spears and her ex-boyfriend David Lucado began dating in 2013, and during their time together, they were spotted in different places, including at church.

In March 2013, the former couple was photographed attending Easter service with Spears’ mother and son in Louisiana. That August, they were seen leaving the church in Thousand Oaks, California.

Before 2013 ended, Spears confirmed what many fans already knew: she was “in love” with Lucado. The singer confessed she loved that he was a simple man, funny, and “really passionate.” She added:

“I like the fact that he's very stubborn, and he's stuck in his ways. […] I love the fact that anything he's involved in he's passionate about, and it's contagious.”

THEIR SEPARATION

Unfortunately, their romance didn’t stand the test of time. In August 2014, Spears revealed she and Lucado were no longer an item by tweeting, “Ahhhh the single life!”

Britney Spears’ ex-boyfriend was recorded dancing and kissing another woman, a video that her father and conservator Jamie purchased to avoid public embarrassment.

David Lucado eventually addressed the situation. Instead of alleging a set-up or claiming the man on the video was not him, he confirmed the accusations.

However, he said he never cheated on Spears because they were “on a break.” Lucado revealed he received a text from Spears in early August that read, “I’m done with you.”

Britney Spears’ new boyfriend is Sam Asghari, a personal trainer-turned-actor who has been in a relationship with the Princess of Pop since 2016.

Asghari, who met Spears after she hired him to be her love interest in a music video, has been very supportive throughout her ongoing attempts to break free from her supposedly “abusive” conservatorship.

He once said he had no respect for Jamie as he wanted to control their relationship and was constantly “throwing obstacles” their way. If that wasn’t enough, Asghari has been seen wearing a #FreeBritney T-shirt.

Britney Spears’ conservatorship case seems far from over, but knowing that people so close to her consider she no longer needs to be under control might be a good sign.
