Pop superstar Britney Spears had planned to get married near Los Angeles on Thursday, a happy event somewhat marred by the break-in of her ex-husband who was invited to the ceremony, U.S. media reports.
The 40-year-old singer and her fiancé Sam Asghari, 28, were in full swing when the intruder showed up at their luxurious villa, according to entertainment and celebrity publications such as Variety or TMZ.
Jason Alexander, a childhood friend of Britney Spears to whom the star was briefly married in 2004 (for only 55 hours), broke into the property, where he was arrested by police.
Mr. Alexander was apparently filmed live on his Instagram account, where he can be seen telling a vigilante that he has been invited.
“Where’s Britney?” He says, before crossing the garden and entering a pink tent decorated with flowers, where he introduces himself under his name to people who appear to be finishing wedding preparations.
According to TMZ, an altercation broke out and police were called.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office reports that officers went to the scene and found out that the intruder was being investigated for crimes in another jurisdiction and therefore proceeded to arrest him, Variety said.
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari had remained very discreet about their marriage, the news of which had only recently leaked to the mainstream media.
The couple announced last month that the singer had a miscarriage. A few weeks earlier, Britney Spears had written on her Instagram account that she was expecting a baby.
The news came five months after U.S. justice in Los Angeles restored control of her personal life, ending her custody primarily by her father, Jamie Spears. The measure was decided in 2008 due to psychological disorders of the star, who described her as “abusive” and which, according to her, prevented her from withdrawing her contraceptive IUD despite her desire to have other children. .
The singer, revealed as a teenager by several planetary tubes including “… Baby One More Time”, already has two boys, Sean and Jayden, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
