On Thursday afternoon, June 9, Britney Spears’ wedding to fiancé Sam Asghari was disrupted when her first husband livestreamed himself crashing the reception at her California estate.
Officers responded to a trespassing incident about 2 p.m., according to Captain Cameron Henderson of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. Jason Alexander, the pop singer’s first husband, was arrested at the ceremony, according to him.
Alexander streamed himself approaching the back of Spears’ house on Instagram before being arrested.
Alexander was grabbed by security and pinned to the ground, as captured by a photographer.
“She’s my first and only wife,” Alexander stated, referring to his 2004 marriage to Spears, a childhood acquaintance. Their union only lasted 55 hours.
Officers realized Alexander had a warrant out for his arrest in another county, according to Henderson.
Following a handful of altercations with Britney’s security guards, the Ventura Sheriff’s Department has charged him with trespassing, vandalism, and two batteries.
In 2016, Spears and her new boyfriend, Sam Asghari, met on the set of a music video. They announced their engagement in September of last year, only a few months after Spears won a legal struggle with her family and was released from a 13-year conservatorship in November.
