Britney Spears Is Granted Restraining Order Against First Husband, Who Allegedly Tried To Crash Her Wedding
Britney Spears has been granted a restraining order against Jason Alexander, whom she was married to for 55 hours in 2004, after he tried to crash her wedding to Sam Asghari.
Pop icon Britney Spears has been granted a restraining order against her first husband after he allegedly tried to crash her recent wedding.
Her lawyer Mathew Rosengart told People this week that her restraining order against Jason Alexander, 40, "was granted."
The attorney also stated that Alexander, who was married to Spears for 55 hours during a trip to Las Vegas in 2004 before the marriage was annulled, “was charged with felony stalking and is incarcerated."
Alexander was arrested on Thursday for allegedly breaking into Spears’ Thousand Oaks, California home while live streaming on Instagram.
Ventura County Sheriff Office Capt. Cameron Henderson previously told Oxygen.com that “Jason Alexander [...] was on the property without permission and there was an altercation between him and the security team that was on scene there.”
In the alleged livestream, Alexander stated, “I’ve been coming for three weeks up here, I’ve been scoping this s--- out,” according to NBC News.
At one point, Alexander appears to be inside Spears’ home. An an apparent security guard approached him, he said “I’m here to crash the wedding, brother.”
The footage also shows Alexander roaming into a backyard tent with an archway of roses, where people were setting up for Spears’ wedding to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari. The incident occurred just hours before the pair exchanged their vows.
Rosengart previously said in a statement to Oxygen.com that he is hoping Alexander is "aggressively prosecuted and convicted" and thanked the sheriff's office for their "prompt and good work."
"This was an outrageous breach, which I am livid about, but fortunately Britney is completely safe and was a beautiful bride," he said.
During a court hearing on Monday, Alexander entered a not guilty plea, the outlet added. In addition to the felony stalking charge, Alexander has been charged with misdemeanor counts of trespassing and refusing to leave private property, vandalism, and battery. His bail is set at $100,000. He has also been charged with an out-of-county warrant for grand theft embezzlement and receiving stolen property, which tacked on an extra $20,000 in bail.
Alexander, who Spears has known since childhood, was also arrested last year for a DUI, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and possession or casual exchange of a controlled substance. Months later, he was arrested at a Nashville airport on a misdemeanor attempted air security violation charge; afterward, he took to social media to go on a rant in which he discussed his support for Spears amidst her conservatorship battle. Last year, Alexander also posted in a photo of a 2006 cease and desist letter from Spears' lawyers after he was paid for a tabloid story.
