Britney Spears‘ wedding to Sam Asghari on Thursday 9 June was set to be an intimate affair with roughly 60 guests from the couple’s inner circle. However, one unexpected – and presumably unwanted – addition to the party showed up: Jason Alexander, Britney’s first husband to whom she was married to for 55 hours in 2004.
According to TMZ, Alexander crashed the event claiming that Britney had invited him and that she was his “first and only wife.” The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Variety that Alexander, who was Britney’s childhood friend, that the office was dispatched to Britney’s residence to investigate a trespassing complaint.
“After running a records check, Alexander was found to have an out of county warrant and was placed under arrest for that offense,” Variety reports. “Deputies are still on scene investigating what occurred, and then will determine if additional charges will be placed on Alexander in relation to the trespassing.”
Alexander reportedly live streamed as he crashed the event. Earlier in the day he also posted an Instagram sharing his theories around Britney Spears with the caption, “Follow the Money.”
Britney and Sam have not commented yet on the incident, and this story is still developing. We’ll update as more information becomes available.
It’s also unclear if this has affected Britney and Sam’s wedding plans or not. The couple, who met on the set of the singer’s “Slumber Party” music video and have been dating for about five years, announced their engagement in September 2021. Earlier this year they shared that Britney was pregnant; however, in early May they announced that Spears had miscarried. Sam later said in an interview with GQ that they still hope to have a child. “When the baby’s ready, it’ll be the right time,” he said.
In addition to Alexander, Britney was previously married to Kevin Federline, with whom she shares two children. They split in 2007.
