Inline math block with asterisks being interpreted as format delimiters if in formatted paragraph

Steps to reproduce

Write an italic sentence and in the middle add an inline formula with asterisks, for example

*(This is a sentence in italic and some useful math: $Re(z)=1/2 z + z^*$ it should still be italic here)*

Expected result

The block math chars should be isolated from the formatting ones and not taken into account

Actual result

In the reading view, the characters inside the math block get rendered as formatting characters.
It doesn’t happen in the live preview.
