American Singer, Britney Spear’s Ex Is In Serious Legal Trouble.
A U.S. court on Monday charged Britney Spears’ ex-husband with one count of stalking after he tried to sabotage the pop princess’ wedding in Southern California, which he had live-streamed on Instagram.
Spears and her longtime partner Sam Asghari were preparing to get married Thursday at her home in Thousand Oaks, California, when the proceedings were halted.
Jason Allen Alexander, a childhood friend with whom the 40-year-old singer was very briefly married to her in 2004. He tried to screw it up.
According to documents filed in Ventura County court, Alexander was charged with one count of stalking, as well as misdemeanor trespassing, vandalism and battery.
The 40-year-old Louisiana native – who appeared in court via Zoom from jail – pleaded not guilty to the charges, and the judge issued a restraining order requiring Alexander to stay 100 yards away from Spears.
His bail was also set at $100,000 and a hearing is scheduled for next Wednesday.
Spears’ attorney, Mathew Rosengart, told reporters he was “pleased” with the way the sheriff’s office responded to Alexander’s trespass.
“This is a serious matter, this is not a ‘wedding crash’ – this was an infiltration, as we all shockingly saw,” Rosengart said outside the courthouse.
According to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, Alexander also has an open warrant for embezzlement and possession of stolen property.
Spears’ wedding to Asghari was not widely followed, with news of the nuptials appearing in trade publications just hours earlier.
The star-studded affair was followed by celebrities such as Madonna, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton and Donatella Versace – who had designed her dress.
