Although Asghari — who is a SAG-AFTRA member — was reportedly not actively working on any projects at the time that the strike was called, sources claimed he is now determined to throw himself into acting and even dabble in potential hosting gigs when he gets the chance to go back to work.
Aside from dreaming about future goals, the actor has also been spending a lot of time with his family since his messy breakup with the pop princess. A source spilled that he's been taking care of his mother ever since she was released from the hospital several weeks ago after suffering an injury.
Asghari filed for divorce on Wednesday, August 16, listing their date of separation as July 28. As OK! previously reported, the "Toxic" singer's allegedly "erratic behavior" pushed him to the edge prior to their split.
"Sam has put up with a lot," an insider claimed. "But Britney now thinks that he was always using her, that she was his meal ticket and that Sam never truly loved her."

"Britney would switch from hot to cold. One minute she loves and adores Sam, and the next he’s the enemy," the insider added. "She’s accused Sam of everything — spying on her, cheating, talking to her family behind her back. The end of the conservatorship had a lot to do with it."
However, another source claimed it wasn't only Spears to blame for their marital woes. Asghari allegedly "really didn’t like her hanging out with other men," and was rumored to be jealous of her relationship with longtime friend and manager Cade Hudson.
