He was reportedly arrested outside Spears’ home after attempting to crash the wedding. A source told Page Six that Spears was “devastated” by the incident but refused to let it “get down”.
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari got engaged in September 2021, about five years after they became a couple. Last year, the singer won a legal battle with her family and was released from 13-year guardianship in November.
It is Spears’ third wedding: she was married to her childhood friend Jason Alexander for 55 hours in 2004 and to Kevin Federline (44) from 2004 to 2007. With Federline she had her two sons. For Asghari it is the first yes word.
