Britney Spears and Sam Asghari Are Officially Married | Couple Tied the Knot in an Intimate Ceremony

The wedding was disrupted when Britney Spears' ex-husband, Jason Alexander, attempted to gatecrash it.

Britney Spears is a married woman. The pop star said 'I do' to Sam Asghari, seven months after her 13-year-long conservatorship came to an end.

The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in California on June 9, 2022, according to PEOPLE. Around 60 guests witnessed Spears and Asghari, including Drew Barrymore, Madonna, Paris Hilton, and Kathy Hilton.

According to sources, Spears wore a gown by famed fashion house Versace and walked down the aisle to Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love."

"I am very ecstatic this day has come, and they are married. I know he wanted this for so long. He is so caring and supportive every step of the way," Asghari's manager, Brandon Cohen, told PEOPLE after the ceremony. "I am so grateful to have Sam in my life and can't wait for the future they will build together."

In fact, this was something Spears had been envisioning for close to a year, an insider revealed.



 

 

"Britney started planning and dreaming about her wedding shortly after she got engaged in November," the insider said. "It's a huge deal to her that she is finally able to get married. She wants it to be perfect."

Her sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, were not in attendance at the wedding but are "happy" for their mom, Kevin Federline's lawyer said. 

However, the festivities were disrupted when Jason Alexander, who was briefly married to the pop star in 2004, was arrested after allegedly gatecrashing, according to BBC. Before he was tackled, he went live moments before the ceremony, apparently from inside her home.

In the video, he could be seen walking through her home looking for her, before going into a marquee where the finishing touches were being put to a large display of roses. He claimed Spears had invited him, saying: "She's my first wife, my only wife."

Ventura County Sheriff's Department said that an altercation had taken place with security officers, which resulted in Alexander being charged with four misdemeanor offenses of trespassing, battery, and vandalism.



 

 

"He was able to find his way onto the property and was confronted by security," a police spokesman said. "An altercation occurred with the security officers and that's where the battery occurred... and during the altercation, an item was broken, so that's where the vandalism comes into play. And by being on private property, the trespass comes into play."

Alexander and Spears were married for a mere 55 hours before their wedding was annulled back in 2004.
