However, Sam also spoke to a photographer on Sunday and explained that his wife was “frustrated” that fans were trying to take pictures of them out at dinner.
“People get a little excited to see my wife, so everyone is filming and doing whatever they want,” he explained. But you know how it is, fame comes with the area and I went to get the car to get the hell out of there, and people thought I left, but it didn’t. So this is what a person is.
Asked if Britney – whose term was terminated last year – had been frustrated by the situation, Sam added: “Yes, exactly – I was frustrated and disrespected.”
