Britney Spears' ex Jason Alexander charged with stalking, trespassing after crashing her wedding

Britney Spears' ex-husband Jason Alexander was charged Monday with felony stalking after showing up at the pop star's wedding to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari.

Alexander, pleaded not guilty in Ventura County court to the charge, along with misdemeanor counts of trespassing, vandalism and battery.

The three misdemeanor charges stemmed directly from Alexander's attempt to get into the wedding, which he livestreamed on Instagram.

The stalking charge involved repeated incidents over time, Spears attorney Mathew Rosengart said.

“He’s going to — I hope, and I pledged my support — be very vigorously prosecuted," Rosengart said outside the hearing. “It’s a very serious matter. This was more than just a quote ‘wedding crash.’ This was an intrusion.”

A judge issued a restraining order requiring Alexander, who appeared in court via video conference from jail, to stay at least 100 yards from Spears for three years. The judge set his bail at $100,000 and scheduled a Wednesday hearing on the issue.

Alexander was Spears' first husband. The two were married for less than three days in 2004 before an annulment.

Deputies responding to a trespassing call detained him, and he was arrested when they learned he had a warrant for his arrest in another county, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office said.
