Could love be on the horizon for Britney Spears in 2017? The pop princess recently posted a sweet shot with her rumored new beau Sam Asghari to Instagram, stirring up even more speculation that the pair are an item.
“Happy New Year,” she simply captioned the photo of Sam with his arm around her.
ET has learned the could-be couple snapped the shot at LA hotspot, Catch LA, where the duo rang in the New Year and enjoyed a romantic dinner -- and a midnight kiss!
A source tells ET Britney and Sam looked incredibly happy, enjoying laughs in between their meal. They noshed on the restaurant’s NYE specials, ‘Surf & Turf Skewers’ and the ‘Over Roasted Dorade.’
Our source says the two were rather private and kept to themselves but seemed “super cozy” throughout the night and were in great spirits leading up to their midnight kiss!
The pair met on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” music video and first sparked romance rumors back in November. They have since been spotted on each other’s social media accounts several times.
In fact, last week when Sony Music’s social media accounts were hacked, declaring that Spears had died in an accident, it was Asghari’s Snapchat with the pop star in bed that calmed many fans’ fears.
And whether or not the romance rumors are true, Spears seems to be excited for the upcoming year.
She took to Instagram on Monday to share several upbeat pics of herself from a photo shoot.
“#CurrentMood Feeling good about 2017,” she captioned one photo.
Spears’ last longterm relationship was with Charlie Ebersol, whom she split from in the summer of 2015.
