Britney Spears’ exes love to act a fool. It’s wild.

Model, actor, and fitness trainer Sam Asghari, who is only actually recognized for being in a former relationship with Spears, filed for divorce in August 2023 citing irreconcilable differences. Spears and Asghari had been dating since 2016, when they met while recording her music video for “Slumber Party.”

On Monday, Dec. 18, Asghari shared an Instagram story of himself in a music recording studio. In the post, he is seen wearing sunglasses, having headphones on, and standing right in front of the mic. “What’s happening here,” Asghari wrote in the post.

Trolls will be trolling, but it’s clear that Asghari is trying to tease some kind of a music career or some other audio project that he might be involved in. For everyone’s sake, we really hope that this man isn’t working on releasing original music or narrating an audiobook about his life.

Asghari being in a music recording booth and sharing footage of that on social media is a pretty shady and ironic thing given that Spears’ other ex-husband, Kevin Federline, literally attempted to launch a music career for himself in 2006 while getting divorced from Spears.

Federline’s first two music releases included the god-awful “Y’all Ain’t Ready” and his remix of a Brazilian funk song, “Popozão,” which he called “a real ass-shaker” in an interview. Spoiler alert: Federline’s remix is pretty horrible.

Sure you've listened to Kevin Federline's terrible new single

Given the massive success of Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River,” which followed his breakup with Spears and painted her to be the villain of the story, these men seem to think that it’s so cool and totally hilarious to be advancing their music careers (or making jokes about those past incidents) after ending their relationships with Spears.

In the past, when Federline talked badly about Spears to the press and she was still married to Asghari, he strongly defended her and clapped back at Federline. Now, we’re seeing Asghari either do literally the exact same thing that Federline did after his breakup with Spears, or he’s creating some weird parody of Federline’s music career attempts, which isn’t funny, either.

In the wise words of Cara Cunningham: please leave Britney alone.
