Britney Spears’ ex-husband Jason Alexander tried to ruin the pop star’s marriage to Sam Asghari at her home in Thousand Oaks, California, on Thursday.
Alexander, 40, was stopped outside by event security before police officers showed up, according to TMZ.
Alexander documented his break-in live on Instagram, reaching the second floor of Spears’ home and even her wedding tent.
In the footage, he spoke to security at the event and told them Spears had invited him to the wedding. After some resistance, Alexander threatened to ruin her big day. A physical struggle ensued before his phone froze and went out.
Vidak For Congress can confirm that the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department has responded to a search of Spears’ home.
“Jason Alexander has been handcuffed, detained and arrested. I thank the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department for their prompt response and good work,” Spears’ attorney, Mathew Rosengart, told Vidak For Congress exclusively.
“And we will try to ensure that Mr Alexander is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” added the former federal prosecutor.
Although Alexander showed public support for Spears during her controversial conservatorship battle — notably attending several #FreeBritney rallies — he has an alarming history of lurking outside the homes of the singer’s family.
Spears’ relatives were “disturbed” after learning that Alexander was visiting their homes unannounced in January, a source told Vidak For Congress exclusively at the time.
“They find it incredibly inappropriate and downright weird,” the source told us.
“It’s bad enough that the family has to deal with fans getting too close for comfort, but they would like to think they can expect more from Jason, who still claims to have so much love and respect for Britney,” added the source to it.
Alexander appeared at Britney’s mother Lynne Spears’ Serenity estate in Kentwood, La., and posted two videos and a photo of the exterior to his private Instagram account.
“Daddy Spears is hiding behind gates @britneyspears,” he captioned the post, referring to Britney’s estranged father and former curator, Jamie Spears, who has been separated from Lynne, 66, since 2002 and now lives in a campervan near Serenity.
At the time, Alexander revealed plans to visit Britney’s childhood home, which Jamie, 69, sold for $275,000 in February 2021, as well as the motor home in which Britney’s uncle Willie Spears lives. It remains unclear whether he ever did.
Alexander was previously arrested for violating a protection order and stalking an unidentified woman in December 2021. He pleaded guilty to the charges on January 4 and was sentenced to nearly a year’s probation.
It was Alexander’s third arrest in 13 months. He had been arrested by police in January 2021 for drink-driving and violating safety protocols at an airport in August.
Alexander, a childhood friend of Britney, was married to the Grammy winner for just 55 hours in 2004. In October of that year, she married now ex-husband Kevin Federline, with whom she shares sons Sean Preston (16) and Jayden. James, 15.
Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told Vidak For Congress that Britney’s children were not present at her wedding to Asghari, although they wish their mother well.
“They think the focus of the day should be on Britney and Sam, and they’re really happy she’s moving forward,” Kaplan said.
