A public feud between Britney Spears and her second ex-husband led to a legal victory during Britney's first divorce. In 2004, he was married to the singer but annulled after 55 hours after a surprise wedding.
Following his arrest after attempting to crash the pop star's wedding to third husband Sam Asghari at their former Southern California home, Jason Alexander has been found guilty of aggravated misdemeanor trespassing and battery, the Ventura County, California, press release states. District Attorney's office.
Alexander pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to the office. The Ventura County Sheriff's Office said that deputies responded to the residence of Britney Spears on June 9, 2022, after Alexander gained uninvited access to her property and entered her residence on the day of her wedding.
As a result of his refusal to comply with verbal commands to leave the premises, Alexander damaged a door and battered a security guard who attempted to remove him from the residence. Alexander will not have to serve any additional jail time as a result of the charges.
The press release stated that he was sentenced to receive credit for time served. His next court appearance is scheduled for November 9. Additionally, as a result of Alexander's plea, a criminal protective order was issued prohibiting him from coming within 100 yards of both victims. The incident that led to Britney and Sam obtaining a three-year restraining order against him had previously occurred.
Records indicate Alexander remains in police custody after being jailed on the day of his arrest. As of 2016, he has two outstanding out-of-county felony warrants for grand theft and buying and receiving stolen property arising from an unrelated case in Northern California in which a woman's bracelet was suspected of being stolen and pawned.
He was sentenced just a day after Kevin Federline, who was married to Britney from 2004 to 2007, uploaded old videos on Instagram showing the couple arguing with their sons, Sean, now 16, and Jayden, now 15. According to the caption he included with the since-deleted videos, "I cannot sit back and let my sons be accused in this manner based on what they have gone through.
As much as we were hurt, we decided to post these videos as a family." As Britney's lawyer responded, "Whether Federline realizes it or not, he has not only violated the privacy and dignity of the mother of his children but also undermined the privacy of his own children, who he should protect." Furthermore, the lawyer stated that "Federline's ill-advised decision to post an old video of his 11 and 12-year-old children was cruel and bottom-of-the-barrel stuff.
