Britney Spears’ ex-husband arrested after ‘accidentally’ trying to get married
Jason Alexander, Britney Spears’ ex-husband of 55 hours, broke into the singer’s home ahead of her wedding to Sam Asghari on Thursday. Alexander was detained by home security personnel and arrested on an outstanding felony warrant, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department confirms to rolling stone.
Deputies responded to a call from an intruder at Spears’ home on Thursday afternoon. When deputies arrived, security personnel had already arrested Alexander, who had gone on Instagram Live from inside Spears’ home.
Henry Wolfford, a spokesman for the Napa County Sheriff’s Department, said Alexander has two active warrants for grand larceny worth more than $400 and purchasing or receiving stolen property. Both crimes allegedly took place on August 1, 2015 and the warrant for his arrest has been active since 2016.
Alexander could be moved to a Napa County jail. His bail is set at $20,000, Wolfford said. Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Commander Eric Buschow said rolling stone that it is unclear whether Spears or her fiancé Asghari will press charges for misdemeanor trespassing.
Alexander went live on Instagram as he ran and walked into Spears’ property. He was seen going upstairs to the house and confronting security personnel who kept asking him to “leave”. Security personnel could be seen holding a gun as they attempted to escort the intruder out of Spears’ home.
At one point, Alexander walked into what appeared to be the wedding venue – complete with pink decorations and roses – as Alexander said to the camera: “Here’s the scoop, guys, of the bullshit wedding. . . I’m Jason, first husband, here to crush her.
Spears is set to wed Asghari on Thursday, with celebrity friends including Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow in attendance, according to People.
