Jason Alexander was married to Britney Spears for 55 hours. In 2004 the short marriage was annulled. Now he’s in the headlines again: this time because he was arrested in front of the singer’s house.
American Jason Alexander, 40, who was briefly married to Britney Spears in 2004, was arrested Thursday outside the pop singer’s home in California. This was confirmed by the police in the Ventura County district at the request of the German Press Agency. The police received a call that a man had entered the singer’s property without permission. Alexander was held in custody on an outstanding warrant on a separate matter, Sheriff Jason Karol said.
Alexander is said to have tried to disrupt preparations for the wedding of Spears, 40, and her fiancé Sam Ashgari, 28, US media reported. The couple are said to have married on June 9th. The celebrity portal “TMZ.com” posted a video that Alexander is said to have published as a live stream on Instagram. It shows him walking through the property’s house and garden, telling staff that Britney invited him. “I’m her first husband,” he said in the video, according to the Guardian. “I’m here to storm the wedding,” Jason Alexander continued. Preparations for a celebration are apparently underway on the site, and a large tent has been set up.
Britney Spears engaged since September 2021
Spears (“Baby One More Time”) and fitness trainer Asghari have been engaged since September 2021. There was initially no official confirmation of the wedding date on Thursday from the singer’s spokesperson.
It would be Spears’ third wedding. The singer was married to childhood friend Jason Alexander in 2004, but only for 55 hours. The marriage was annulled. In 2004 she married her dancer Kevin Federline. She has two sons with him, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15. The couple split in 2007.
