On Thursday night, the wedding of Britney Spears and Sam Asghari took place in Los Angeles. It was an eventful evening with many celebrities like Madonna, Drew Barrymore, and Paris Hilton present.
Spears first met Asghari on the set of her music video for “Slumber Party,” a song off of Glory, in 2016. They quickly started dating after bumping into each other.
The couple’s marriage is Spears’ third and Asghari’s first. The pop star was married to her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander for only 55 hours in 2004, then annulled him. Not long after, she wedded Kevin Federline the same year.
In 2007, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline separated. They shared two children from their marriage: Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden, 15.
Hours before the event, Spears’ former husband attempts to crash their ceremony. He was held by authorities and told them that he got permission from her, all in an Instagram live.
“She’s my first wife, my only wife. I’m her first husband. I’m here to crash the wedding,” he stated in a clip shot by TMZ.
Spears and Asghari’s wedding happened following a chaotic but hopeful whirlwind of events for the Grammy winner over the past few months. Thirteen years after living under a conservatorship, a jury’s verdict ordered the termination of the legal arrangement in November 2021, giving Spears the control over her estate and finances again.
After the ruling, Spears took to social media to express her gratitude to fans, writing, “I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!! Best day ever.”
“History was made today,” he wrote on social media, also celebrating the legal victory as he has been supporting Spears during the court hearings. “Britney is free!”
In the middle of last year’s court hearings, Spears and Asghari revealed their engagement in September. In addition, they announced early this year that they were expecting a baby together.
However, in a joint Instagram statement in May, the couple said they had lost their “miracle baby.”
“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” it said. “This is a devastating time for any parent.”
“Our love for each other is our strength,” the statement concluded on a hopeful note. “We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support.”
