Jason Alexander, the ex-husband of US pop icon Britney Spears, has been booked with vandalism and battery charges after he attempted to gate-crash his ex-wife’s wedding, on Thursday.
Britney Spears ex-husband jailed for gate-crashing her wedding
Alexander went live on Instagram to film his attempt to interrupt nuptial proceedings at the home of his ex-wife in Thousand Oaks, CA. Spears, as reported by TMZ, was getting hitched to her long-term personal trainer, 28-year-old Sam Asghari when her ex-husband scaled the fence of her property with every intention to disrupt the occasion.
In the live video, Alexander approaches security at the entrance, and identifies himself as Spears’ “first and only husband.”
“I’m Jason Alexander. The first husband. I’m here to crash the wedding!” he exclaimed.
Alexander, ignoring repeated warnings from security to get off the property, breaches the entrance and dashes to the house, hurling out the 40-year-old’s pop star’s name.
He makes it through the house and onto the backyard, where a tent decorated with roses and seats for guests, was erected.
Alexander can be heard scoffing the decor, and repeatedly identifying himself to a number of people at the tent as Britney’s husband.
By then, security had caught up to the ex-husband and before he could get the attention of a person named Kate, he was taken down. The video of the scuffle was caught on camera and you can watch it below:

Neither Sam nor his soon-to-be wife Spears has released a formal statement addressing the bizarre events that unfolded at the Thousand Oaks home.
According to reports, Alexander was jailed and charged with trespassing, vandalism and two counts of battery.
“I am personally working with the sheriff’s department to ensure Mr. Alexander is aggressively prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Spears’ lawyer Mathew Rosengart said.
