It took five years, a fierce legal battle and then a wild arrest on their big day, but we can finally formalize it:
Britney Spears and Sam Asgari husband and wife!
The couple exchanged vows at an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles on Thursday, committing to each other in front of well-known guests such as Drew Barrymore, Madonna, Paris Hilton and Kathy Hilton.
The singer and his client said that after they did so, Asgari’s manager confirmed the exciting news.
“I am just happy that this day has come, and they are married. I know he has wanted it for so long.
Brandon Cohen said in a statement, “He is very caring and supportive at every step.”
“I am so grateful to have Sam in my life and can’t wait for the future that they will make together.”
However, the event did not go well without a big and stunning push.
The Ventura Sheriff’s Department arrested Spears’ ex-husband, Jason Alexander, on Thursday on an outstanding warrant for breaking into a Grammy Award-winning private wedding venue just hours before his planned wedding to Asgari.
“My name is Jason Alexander. Britney has invited me here,” Alexander claimed in an Instagram livestream before his arrest.
“Britney Spears invited me here. She’s my first wife, my only wife. I’m her first husband. I’m here to break up the marriage.”
Completely and utterly crazy and scary, isn’t it?
Fortunately, Spears and Asgari were still able to get through their marriage.
According to insiders, Spears wore a Versace gown for the occasion and walked over to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

Surprisingly, sons Shawn Preston and Jaden James – who shared Britney with ex-Kevin Federlin – were not present at the wedding.
The newlyweds were spotted on the set of the artist’s “Slumber Party” music video.
Spears later explained in a 2017 radio interview that he and Asgari took about “five months” to reconnect after his video shoot.
“I was, ‘She was really pretty, this guy was really smart,’ so I called her,” Spears said again about digging up her phone number:
“He’s a really funny, funny person.”
From there, Asgari was on Britney’s side as she fought her father in court, aiming to end the maintenance that had been in place since 2008 … and which gave her father complete control over her finances and her career.
It also gave Jamie Spears control over her daughter’s personal life, Britney alleged, last summer telling a judge that her father would not allow her to remove her IUD and take the child.
Finally, in November, a judge terminated the reservation.
A few weeks before the bombing, Britney and Sam got engaged.
“I can’t believe it,” the pop star captioned an Instagram video of her and Asgari.
Fast forward to this past Wednesday and Spears took a look at the couple’s pre-wedding celebrations for fans via an Instagram story video.
The footage shows the two enjoying a glass of champagne in the back seat of a Rolls-Royce.
Earlier this year, meanwhile, Spears announced that she was expecting her third child, her first child with Asgari.
A month later, however, the two confirmed that Spears had had an abortion.
“We are deeply saddened to announce that we lost our miraculous baby early in pregnancy,” an image shared via Instagram on both of their profiles.
“It’s a devastating time for any parent.”
Asgari later mentioned that the couple planned to continue trying to expand their family.
“We feel your support,” she wrote via Instagram in May.
“We are taking things positively and moving forward with our future.
“It’s hard, but we’re not alone.”
