The singer, who met the backup dancer on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video, told AMP 103.7’s Fast in the Morning show that she hit up Asghari after finding his phone number in her purse. Though they weren’t clicking at first, Spears admitted they eventually found a connection when the two were “basically forced to talk to each other” on set.
“He doesn’t really know me as a person, and I have no idea who the hell he is, and we were just talking,” she said of the long hours of filming. “It was not even like a serious thing. It was one of those things that we were having a conversation to get through the experience, you know?”
“I kept his number, and it was so weird because it was like five months later that I found his number in my bag. I was like ‘He was really cute. This guy was really cute!’ so then I called him,” she recalled, explaining that they spoke about getting sushi together. “He is just a really fun, funny person.”
In December, Spears, 35, and Asghari sparked romance rumors when they were seen canoodling at a Los Angeles sushi restaurant. Later, they shared a selfie of them cuddling in what appeared to be a bed.
What a meet-cute!
