Britney Spears’ ex-husband arrested at home during singer’s third wedding
Britney Spears’ ex-husband Jason Alexander has been arrested at the singer’s Los Angeles home as she prepares to wed partner Sam Asghari.
Officers from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department responded to a trespassing incident at the address and later arrested Alexander, 40. A department spokesperson confirmed to the PA news agency that Alexander was arrested on an out-of-county warrant and was transported from the scene to a police station following the incident.
It is understood that the intimate wedding ceremony between the singer, 40, and her fitness trainer partner, 28, was due to take place on Thursday. Shortly before the incident, her former partner Alexander posted an Instagram Live story near the property, in which he said he was there to “crush” the wedding.
Spears and Asghari got engaged in September last year, with the singer joking that the proposal was “way overdue”. A 13-year-old conservatorship that had controlled his life was terminated by Los Angeles Superior Court in November last year. A source quoted by the American publication People had indicated that the ceremony on Thursday was to bring together around “60 guests from their close entourage”.
Spears has two children, Sean and Jayden, with ex-husband Kevin Federline. It will be the singer’s third trip to the altar, having divorced Federline in 2007 and Alexander in 2004 following their marriage earlier that year.
In May, the singer announced the loss of her “miracle baby in early pregnancy.” She had revealed she was pregnant a month earlier, saying she had taken a test after Asghari teased her about being “food pregnant”.
According to TMZ, Spears’ brother Bryan will attend the ceremony but his sister Jamie-Lynn and her parents will not be present. Spears was separated from her family members after being placed under a controversial conservatorship in 2008, which controlled many aspects of her life, including her finances, amid drug addiction and mental health issues.
