Who is Jason Alexander? Britney Spears’ ‘shaken’ after ex-husband's arrest at her wedding
Even as Britney Spears officially and happily became the wife of her longtime beau Sam Asghari in an intimate function on Thursday, June 9, their fairytale wedding day also saw an unexpected incident. As the two love birds were getting ready for their special day, Spears’ first husband, Jason Alexander, who was also her childhood friend tried to interrupt it.
The 40-year-old singer’s former husband reportedly trespassed on her Thousand Oaks, California home, and also shamelessly started live streaming from there. He said in the video, “I'm here to crash the wedding because nobody is here except Sam. Where the f**k is the family? So here's inside scoop of the bulls**t wedding.” Alexander also allegedly claimed that Spears “invited me here,” before adding: “She’s my first wife. My only wife.”

However, before things got worse, he was captured by police. The Ventura County Sheriff's Department said: “They placed him under arrest for the warrant, and the deputies and investigators are investigating what occurred at the residence to determine if any criminal violations occurred. Eventually he will be booked at the Ventura County Jail.” Later, the US Weekly reported that Alexander “had been arrested for three misdemeanors: trespassing and refusing to leave the property, battery, and vandalism. His bail is set at $22,500.”
Besides, it has been said that his arrest has left the ‘Womanizer’ singer “shaken”. An insider told E! News, "Britney expressed she's a bit shaken up after the incident that happened.” Another source added: “Britney and Sam spent majority of the day apart but once he heard about Jason, he wanted to console Britney. He's always making sure he is there for her and is very supportive. They have both expressed that they are excited to have this special moment and to make their love official.”
Who is Jason Alexander?
Alexander and Spears were childhood sweethearts and the two exchanged vows on January 3, 2004, at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, their marriage couldn’t survive since it was annulled 55 hours later, and Alexander blames the songstress’ mother, Lynne, for that.
He spoke with Access Hollywood soon after the annulment and said: “We were on a high. We consummated the marriage in the limo on the way back to the hotel. It was just crazy, man. And we were just looking at each other and said, 'Let’s do something wild, crazy. Let’s go get married, just for the hell of it.’”
Also, on an episode of the ‘Toxic: The Britney Spears Story’ podcast, he recalled: “They told me if I would sign the contracts — the annulment — they would let me and Britney continue our relationship, and if we felt the same way in six months, they would give us a proper marriage. So I had no reason to believe otherwise. I thought that’s what the truth was. They were allowing Britney and I to still have phone communication,” as he went on to state: “Literally the day after, like, the 30 days was up, I remember trying to call the number I had for Britney, and it was like, 'Beep, beep, beep,'" he continued. "I’m like, ‘F**k they got me! motherf**kers!' So that was it.”
Alexander had also added, “The men in black swooped in, along with her mum and other family members, and they made us sign paperwork under duress to end our marriage. We didn’t want to annul it. They lied to us. It was always about controlling Britney and controlling her money.”
Though bad happened with Alexander and Spears as claimed by him, the man’s history is reportedly not quite good. Fox News reported that early this year, he was arrested for DUI in Nashville, Tennessee, and “was booked on three misdemeanor charges: driving under the influence, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and possession or casual exchange of a controlled substance.”
Also, in August last year, Alexander was reportedly held in custody at a Nashville airport for a security violation. Then months later in December, he was again “arrested for aggravated stalking and violating a protection order. Alexander was booked into the Williamson County Jail and was released on Jan. 4, 2022,” Fox News added.
