Actor Sam Asghari is trying to find a "disguise" to hide from the paparazzi amid his divorce from Britney Spears.

On Wednesday, August 16, the 29-year-old actor filed for divorce from the Princess of Pop, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split in court documents obtained by The Blast. He listed July 28, 2023, as the date of separation, hinting that the split has been coming for a while.

Although his name has been splashed across headlines over the past several days, it seems that the actor is looking to keep a low profile amid the split.
