Britney Spears’ ex Hesam “Sam” Asghari seeks advice on paparazzi disguises as singer reveals her ‘pain’

With divorce imminent, Britney Spears’ ex is probably not on her radar — but he might be on someone else’s.

Hasem “Sam” Asghari – who only married Spears in July 2022 – took to social media to joke about his circumstances and urged his followers to choose his disguise for his eventual run-in with the paparazzi.

“Help me choose,” Asghari wrote of three filtered photos showing the actor with different hairstyles, facial hair, and accessories. He added a reply box for users to reply.

Some people on social media found the actor’s joke inappropriate given Spears’ recent announcement that she “couldn’t take the pain” of their relationship anymore.

“Sam Asghari’s attempt to get fans involved in his decision to dress up as paparazzi shows a lack of sensitivity to his ongoing divorce from Britney Spears. It’s disappointing to see him trivialize such a serious matter for personal gain,” one Twitter user wrote.

“He should be enjoying his two seconds of fame now before he completely falls off and [remains] In [B]Ritney’s shadow,” shared another person.

On Friday, Spears chose a well-known way to break her silence by sharing a video of her dancing on Instagram. She captioned the post: “As everyone knows, Hesam and I are no longer together… 6 years is a long time to be with anyone so I’m a little shocked but… I’m not here, to explain why, because honestly, it’s nobody’s business,” she exclaimed.

“But honestly I couldn’t take the pain anymore!!! In a kind of telepathic way I have received so many messages from friends that have melted my heart and thank you!!! “Too long and my Instagram may seem perfect but it’s far from reality and I think we all know that,” she wrote, paying tribute to her fans.


“I’d love to show my feelings and tears about how I really feel but for some reason I’ve always had to hide my weaknesses!!! If I wasn’t my father’s strong soldier, I would be sent to places where I need repairs by doctors!!! But that’s when I needed family the most!!! Thou shalt be loved unconditionally…not on conditions!!!! So I will be as strong as I can and do my best!!! And I’m actually doing pretty well!!! Anyway, have a great day and don’t forget to smile,” she concluded.

According to court documents obtained by Fox News Digital, Asghari cited “irreconcilable differences” when he filed for divorce on August 16, despite a July 28 separation date.

The ‘Special Ops: Lioness’ actor has asked for spousal support and legal fees to be covered. After negative rumors circulated suggesting a more controversial split, his rep told Fox News Digital: “There have been many allegations that Sam is challenging the prenup and threatening to exploit his ex-wife with videos. However, all of these claims are false and nothing negative.” The intent was ever aimed at her and never will be. Sam has always supported her and will always support her.

Asghari was the first to speak out about the divorce, sharing a statement on Instagram.

“After six years of love and dedication to each other, my wife and I have decided to end our journey together. We will hold on to the love and respect we have for one another. And I always wish her the best.”

“S— happened,” he wrote, refraining from elaborating on it. “Asking for privacy seems ridiculous to me, so I ask everyone, including the media, to be kind and considerate.”

The couple originally met on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” video in 2016 and married last summer at their Thousand Oaks home.
