His stint on the television show is the first big role that he has had since he and Spears broke up in August 2023. The reason for the split was listed as irreconcilable differences and was the third marriage for Spears.

Previously, they married in June 2022 and were wed in front of several famous faces like Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton and Madonna. The couple suffered a miscarriage before their marriage. In her book, The Woman In Me, Spears revealed that she had a miscarriage about a month before they tied the knot.

However, Spears did go on to praise Asghari in her book. She shared that he was supportive during a key hearing that helped to end her years-long conservatorship, according to the Associated Press.
