Britney Spears’ first husband has been convicted of trespassing and battery after turning up unexpectedly at the singer’s wedding in June.

Jason Alexander, 40, accepted the charges. A judge sentenced him to 64 days – the time he has already served.

BBC says he was tackled by security after gate-crashing the wedding between Spears and her long-time partner, Sam Asghari.

In 2004, Alexander married the superstar, a childhood friend. However, the union was called off after 55 hours.

Spears, 40, and Asghari, 28, married on June 9 in a private ceremony at her home in Ventura County, California.

However, Alexander’s arrival disrupted the preparations.

He had previously posted an Instagram Live story in which he stated his intention to “crash” the wedding.

His video showed him walking through Spears’ house looking for her before entering a marquee where a large display of roses was being finished.

He claimed Spears had invited him, saying: “She’s my first wife, my only wife.” Alexander was arrested and taken to a local jail.
