Britney Spears' ex-husband, Jason Alexander, reportedly appeared at her wedding to Sam Asghari on Thursday (June 9) and was arrested by police.

Alexander, who married his childhood friend Spears for 55 hours in 2004, went live on Instagram ahead of the event, in screenshots taken by TMZ and videos uploaded to Twitter by fans. According to the publication, he approached event security and told them that Spears had invited him, and that she was his first and only wife.

According to Variety, the Ventura County Sheriff was sent to the Spears residence to complain of misconduct. Alexander later had an out-of-state warrant and was detained for the offence, although he was reportedly still at the scene.

Spears' attorney, Mathew Rosengart, said: "I am deeply outraged by this outrageous criminal intrusion and I am working closely with law enforcement to ensure that it is brought to justice in a full and aggressive manner. I thank the Ventura county sheriff's office for their quick and kind work."

Earlier in the day, it was confirmed that Spears and Asghari would be holding their wedding ceremony on Thursday (9th June). The couple met in 2016 on the set of the singer's "Slumber Party" music video, and got engaged in September 2021.

In July 2021 Alexander guested on the podcast Tox: The Britney Spears Story, where he claimed that a team of pop stars produced legal documents for their short marriage. "They told me if I was going to contract - award - they would let me and Britney continue our relationship, and if we were going to feel the same way in six months, they would be us a proper marriage," he said. "So I have no reason to believe otherwise. I think that's the truth. They allowed Britney and I to keep in touch by phone. So we talk every day and I still can't believe the story that was told to me, that they would let us keep talking and then we would get married, right, in the future if we felt the same way."

Spears and Asghari have not been free to comment on their marriage or events with Alexander.

Mantan suami Britney Spears, Jason Alexander, dilaporkan muncul di pernikahannya dengan Sam Asghari pada Kamis (9 Juni) dan ditangkap oleh polisi.

Alexander, yang menikah dengan teman masa kecilnya Spears selama 55 jam pada tahun 2004, melakukan siaran langsung di Instagram sebelum acara tersebut, dalam tangkapan layar yang diambil oleh TMZ dan video yang diunggah ke Twitter oleh penggemar. Menurut publikasi, dia mendekati keamanan acara dan memberi tahu mereka bahwa Spears telah mengundangnya, dan bahwa dia adalah istri pertama dan satu-satunya.

Menurut Variety, Sheriff Ventura County dikirim ke kediaman Spears untuk menyelidiki pengaduan pelanggaran. Alexander kemudian ditemukan memiliki surat perintah di luar wilayah dan ditahan karena pelanggaran itu, meskipun petugas melaporkan masih berada di tempat kejadian.

Pengacara Spears, Mathew Rosengart, mengatakan: “Saya sangat marah dengan intrusi kriminal yang keterlaluan ini dan saya bekerja sama dengan penegak hukum untuk memastikan bahwa dia diadili secara penuh dan agresif. Saya berterima kasih kepada kantor sheriff county Ventura atas kerja cepat dan baik mereka.”

Sebelumnya pada hari itu, telah dikonfirmasi bahwa Spears dan Asghari akan mengadakan upacara pernikahan mereka pada hari Kamis (9 Juni). Pasangan itu bertemu pada 2016 di lokasi syuting video musik penyanyi "Slumber Party", dan bertunangan pada September 2021.

Pada Juli 2021, Alexander menjadi tamu di podcast Toxic: The Britney Spears Story, di mana ia mengklaim bahwa tim bintang pop membuatnya menandatangani dokumen hukum untuk membatalkan pernikahan singkat mereka. "Mereka memberi tahu saya jika saya akan menandatangani kontrak - pembatalan - mereka akan membiarkan saya dan Britney melanjutkan hubungan kami, dan jika kami merasakan hal yang sama dalam enam bulan, mereka akan memberi kami pernikahan yang layak," katanya. “Jadi saya tidak punya alasan untuk percaya sebaliknya. Saya pikir itulah kebenarannya. Mereka mengizinkan Britney dan saya untuk tetap berkomunikasi melalui telepon. Jadi kami berbicara setiap hari dan saya masih percaya cerita yang diceritakan kepada saya, bahwa mereka akan membiarkan kami terus berbicara dan kemudian kami akan menikah, kan, di masa depan jika kami merasakan hal yang sama.”

Spears dan Asghari belum secara terbuka mengomentari pernikahan mereka atau insiden dengan Alexander.
