Britney Spears is unharmed despite an ex attempting to crash her wedding day, Mamas Uncut previously reported.
The Ventura Sheriff’s Department arrested Spears’ ex-husband Jason Alexander on an outstanding warrant this past Thursday as he trespassed at Britney’s private wedding venue just hours before her planned nuptials to fiancé Sam Asghari.
Britney Spears’ Ex-Husband Jason Alexander Was Reportedly Armed With a Knife While ‘Crashing’ Her Wedding
“She’s freaking out over this,” a source close to Spears, 40, tells PEOPLE.
Alexander, 40, live-streamed himself on Instagram as he roamed around the property, revealing their wedding decorations, which were still being arranged by party planners. He could be heard yelling her name and claiming to security that he was invited to the wedding.
“So, here’s the inside scoop, guys, of the bull— wedding. Jason Alexander, what’s up,” he said, greeting the workers and even shaking one’s hand.
“My name’s Jason Alexander. Britney invited me here,” Alexander claimed. “Britney Spears invited me here. She’s my first wife, my only wife. I’m her first husband. I’m here to crash the wedding.”
Spears’ assistant Vicky T, who was alerted to the trespassing by fans on Instagram, has since given an update, urging how Britney was not affected.
“I’ve done everything I can while being out of the country to keep everyone safe,” Vicky wrote on her Instagram Story. “Thank you to all the absolutely amazing and incredible fans for alerting me of so much. You are blessings. Thank you. Everyone is safe.” TMZ reports Alexander allegedly had a knife on his person as well.
Britney was married to Alexander, a childhood friend, for 55 hours in January 2004. They two eloped at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Previously, Alexander pleaded guilty in January to violating an order of protection and aggravated stalking against an unidentified woman, TMZ reported at the time. He was given 11 months and 29 days of probation.
Now, Alexander has been hit with a restraining order following his antics. “This was an outrageous security breach, which I am livid about, but fortunately Britney is safe and she was a stunning and happy bride,” Spears’s attorney Matthew Rosengart said in a statement.
Additionally, he was also booked for battery, trespassing and refusing to leave private property, and vandalism. Nonetheless, a source said the night turned out to be a fairytale for Spears and Asghari. “Britney walked herself down the aisle. She looked absolutely stunning in her main dress,” a source told PEOPLE. “She cried happy tears at some moments.”
Sources told PEOPLE earlier this week that Spears and Asghari, 28, were planning for an intimate wedding on Thursday after they announced their engagement in September.
“Britney started planning and dreaming about her wedding shortly after she got engaged in November,” a source told PEOPLE. “She has enjoyed the planning, but also felt stressed about it.”
“It’s a huge deal to her that she is finally able to get married. She wants it to be perfect. She is so excited that she feels overwhelmed. She is very emotional,” the insider added.
The two started dating in 2016 after he appeared in her “Slumber Party” music video.
