Britney Spears has said yes for the third time. The singer married her fiancé Sam Asghari at her estate. There were numerous celebrity friends of the 40-year-olds. Her first husband caused a scandal.
Singer Britney Spears has married her fiancé Sam Asghari at their California estate. The couple got engaged last September after five years of dating. Around 60 guests were invited to the ceremony at Spears’ mansion in Thousand Oaks, 50 kilometers northwest of Los Angeles. Including numerous celebrity friends of the singer who supported her during her guardianship fight against her father Jamie Spears.
Hotel heiress Paris Hilton, a longtime companion of Spears, arrived with her husband Carter Reum and mother Kathy Hilton. Actress Drew Barrymore, singer Selena Gomez and presenter Maria Menounos were also on the guest list. Superstar Madonna did not miss the festival either. She and Britney Spears caused a scandal by kissing onstage at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. During the guardianship dispute, the 63-year-old publicly advocated for Spears last year. Madonna wrote on Instagram at the time: “Give this woman her life back. Slavery was abolished so long ago. It’s a violation of human rights!”
Donatella Versace designed the wedding dress for Britney Spears
Designer Donatella Versace played a special role. Not only was she invited to the wedding as a celebrity friend, she also designed Britney Spears’ wedding dress. Spears walked down the altar to Elvis Presley’s song “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, reports the US magazine “People”.
Britney Spears’ parents and sister, with whom the singer is deeply at odds, were not invited. Spears’ older brother Bryan is said to have appeared. Her two sons Sean Preston and Jayden James from her marriage to Kevin Federline missed the wedding. “They’re so happy for their mother and hope Sam and Britney have a great future together. It’s their night and they didn’t want to take it away from them,” Federline’s attorney told People magazine.
Spears’ first husband Jason Alexander caused an awkward moment. He showed up at the singer’s estate and claimed to have been invited. The 40-year-old streamed live on Instagram as he walked across the property and attempted to storm the event. Eventually he was stopped by security personnel and arrested for trespassing, vandalism and assault.
Spears and Alexander married in Las Vegas in 2004. The marriage was annulled just two days later. That same year, the singer married Kevin Federline. In 2007, after three years, the divorce followed. 28-year-old Sam Asghari is now Britney Spears’ third husband.
