LOS ANGELES (AP) – Britney Spears’s former husband crashed into her Southern California wedding venue, authorities say.

Ventura County Sheriff’s Capt. Cameron Henderson said officers responded to a trespassing call after 2 p.m. Thursday. He says the pop singer’s first husband, Jason Alexander, was detained at the site of the ceremony.

Henderson says Alexander was arrested after officers noticed he had a warrant for his arrest in another county.

Alexander went live on his Instagram as he approached event security. In what appeared to be a mostly empty but decorated room, he told them that Spears had invited him.

“She’s my first wife, my only wife,” said Alexander, who was briefly married to Spears — his childhood friend — in 2014. Their marriage lasted only 55 hours.

“I am her first husband,” he continued in the video. “I’m here to crash the wedding.”

Spears was previously married to Kevin Federline, with whom she shares two sons, ages 14 and 15.

Spears and her fiancé Sam Asghari were set to get married on Thursday. The couple announced their engagement nearly nine months ago after Asghari proposed to her with a four-carat diamond ring.

The couple met on the set of the “Slumber Party” music video in 2016.

A Spears representative did not immediately return a request for comment.

Authorities are still investigating the reported break-in.
