Britney and Sam split this summer, with Sam filing for divorce in August 2023, citing 'irreconcilable differences.'

When did Britney Spears and Sam Asghari get married?

Britney and Sam said 'I Do' during a fairytale ceremony at their Los Angeles home on June 9, 2022 – however, the event was crashed by Britney's ex-husband Jason Alexander, who was subsequently arrested.

Jason – who the star wed back in 2004 for just 55 hours before it was annulled – was charged with one count of misdemeanour vandalism, one count of misdemeanour trespassing and two counts of misdemeanour battery.

Despite the scary incident, it seemed the wedding was still a magical day for the newlyweds after a delay due to the intrusion.

Famous faces such as Selena Gomez, Paris Hilton, Drew Barrymore and Donatella Versace were in attendance at the couples' dream nuptials – and by the looks of Instagram, everyone had a blast!

In one of Britney's posts, she gushed over the special day: "WE DID IT !!! WE GOT MARRIED!!! Gggggeeeeezzzzz !!! It was the most spectacular day [sic]."

The 'Toxic' hit-maker has always made it crystal clear on social media that she wants children with Sam – growing her family as she already shares sons Sean and Jayden with ex Kevin Federline.

In her court appearance in June 2021 for her conservatorship hearing the ‘Baby One More Time’ singer said: “I want to be able to get married and I want to have a baby.”

Britney and Sam met on set of her ‘Slumber Party’ music video in October 2016 and they began dating shortly after.

Sam has remained a key support system in Britney’s life.

He also sweetly calls her his 'lioness' for her constant strength.
