'You look radiant': Britney Spears' mom Lynne, sister Jamie react to her wedding despite snub
Britney Spears' mother Lynne Spears and sister Jamie Lynn Spears have publicly responded to the singer's star-studded wedding to Sam Asghari despite being excluded from the guest list. On Thursday, June 9, Spears, 40, and Asghari, 28, married at their Los Angeles residence. The singer's pals Paris Hilton, Madonna, Selena Gomez and Drew Barrymore were among the many celebrities who made it to the grandiose wedding.
In an Instagram message on Saturday, Lynne expressed her public support for the pair. "You look radiant and so happy! Your wedding is the "Dream" wedding! And having it at your home makes it so sentimental and special! I am soooo happy for you! I love you!"
Jamie Lynn also showed her subtle support for Britney's marriage by liking one of E! News' recent Instagram posts about Britney and Sam's wedding. The post featured an image of the "Circus" singer, Drew Barrymore and Selena Gomez all laughing and hugging one another while out on the dancefloor.
Aside from excluding her mom and sister, Britney also snubbed her father Jamie Spears following her consevatorship drama. Britney's teen sons — Sean and Jayden — also skipped her wedding. But that was because "they didn't want to take the spotlight away from their mother", a lawyer for her children's father, Kevin Federline, told People.
Britney's brother Bryan was the only member of her family she invited, and despite seeing him dressed up with his partner just hours before the wedding, he didn't show up. Britney has been on the outs with her parents and sister since her battle to end the conservatorship heated up last year. Mathew Rosengart, the singer's lawyer, is currently attempting to get Jamie Spears to take a deposition.
Britney looked stunning as she walked down the aisle in a mesmerising custom Versace gown which was personally designed for her by Donatella Versace and reportedly took over 700 hours to make.
“Designing Britney and Sam’s wedding outfits came naturally to me. A tremendous amount of love was poured into every detail. Together with our Atelier, we created a gown and tuxedo that exudes elegance and glamour. They look just perfect together!” the designer wrote on Instagram, adding that Britney “has always had a very special place in my heart. Seeing her free, happy, and now getting married puts a smile on my face.”
Donatella also revealed that the dress was crafted in a delicate white silk cady. It featured a portrait neckline that wraps around the shoulders and comes together with a stream of pearl buttons. The gown’s fitted bodice was pleated in the front with the bottom half featuring a thigh-high slit.
For the reception festivities, she went a more classic Britney route. She kicked off the event in a black blazer-style mini dress, which showed off her butt, to dance the night away. The pop star later revealed via Instagram on Saturday that she wore her “first diamond thong.”
“LIVING IS GIVING … pssss don’t worry I had my first diamond thong underneath my jacket … hope I didn’t offend anyone !!!,” she captioned a clip of the newlyweds busting a move during the wedding reception.
According to Vogue, she then changed into a “two-toned outfit” before her final outfit of the night: a sassy red fringed mini. Asghari complemented her in a black wool tuxedo with his Versace jacket featuring silk satin details. It was teamed with a white shirt, black loafers and black silk bow tie.
