Just when you thought you’d seen it all from Britney Spears, the pop princess, 22, has gotten married — at a little Vegas chapel, wearing a baseball cap, to a childhood friend, sources close to the singer say. A hotel bellman walked her down the aisle. But before you make any plans to send wedding gifts, a source close to the pop star insists it was all a joke that went too far, and that Spears is already making plans to annul the marriage.
Says someone close to Spears: ‘I don’t know what’s going through her mind.’
Spears’s husband — at least for the time being — is named Jason Allen Alexander, and, like the singer, is from Kentwood, La. The two tied the knot early Saturday morning in Las Vegas at the Little White Wedding Chapel on the Strip, sources tell PEOPLE.
The wedding plan was apparently hatched Friday night while Spears and Alexander were partying at Ghostbar, the hip club in the Palms Casino Hotel. The club’s bouncers got word that Spears wanted a limo. One of the hotel’s lime-green limos was provided, being driven by a hotel bellman, who shuttled the couple to the Little White Wedding Chapel, a famous quick-hitch place where everybody from Dixie Chick Natalie Maines to Bruce and Demi have tied the knot.
Chapel staff told the couple that they couldn’t get married without a license, so the pair was taken by the limo to the Clark County Marriage Bureau office in the downtown Las Vegas courthouse at some point after 12:30 a.m. on Saturday. They applied for and were granted the marriage license, then rode back to the chapel, where they were married.
Spears wore jeans and a baseball cap. Alexander had on a casual shirt. The bellman walked Spears down the aisle. There were no friends or family in attendance.
The whole thing was videotaped by the chapel, and Spears has been showing the world’s craziest wedding video to friends.
‘I don’t even know if she loves him,’ says a source.
The honeymoon, such as it was, took place back at a luxury suite at the Palms immediately after the wedding. Then, Saturday night, Spears dined with her manager, her brother, Palms owner George Maloof and a couple of friends at a hotel steakhouse.
Little is known about Alexander. A source says that he and Spears were childhood friends who recently hooked up — then hitched up. They had spent New Year’s Eve together at the hotel’s Rain nightclub, then retired to the suite.
Spears released her fourth album, ‘In the Zone,’ last November. It debuted at No. 1 on the album charts. Her concert tour begins in San Diego on March 2.
Well, I really don’t know what to think about this, although I’m not happy about it. I just pray that this isnt true, because this is a really dumb thing to do. We’ll find out soon in a statement from Jive, lets just hope its today!!
Britney Spears is doing Justin Timberlake one better in her new video. Where her real-life ex just stalked his cheating lover in his clip for “Cry Me a River,” Spears takes a more lethal approach in her recently shot “Toxic.”
In the Joseph Kahn-directed video, Spears plays a femme fatale who’ll do just about anything to procure a poisonous potion so she can kill her cheating ex, played by actor Martin Henderson (“The Ring,” “Windtalkers”).
Spears discovers his indiscretions when she climbs up a wall and sees Henderson with another woman, leading her on a mission of revenge that lands her in precarious James Bond-esque situations where not everyone is what they seem, thanks to masks and other disguises, according to a rep for the director.
In one scenario, Spears pretends to be a stewardess and picks out a sizable guy on an airplane for a bathroom interrogation that has some mile-high-club innuendo — only to have him turn out to be a well-cut model in disguise (played by the masseur from Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom” video). She ends up getting the potion on this flight, but still must chase Henderson through European locations, which were recreated on soundstages in Los Angeles during the shoot last week. Model Tyson Beckford assists the singer with a lift on his motorbike in one Paris setting.
Besides the flight-attendant wear, Spears also sports a black cat suit, and at one point wears nothing but pasted-on diamonds in the video.
Henderson co-stars with Ice Cube in Kahn’s upcoming debut feature film, “Torque,” which opens January 16 (see “Ice Cube Switching From Barber To Biker For Next Flick”).
“Toxic,” the second single from Spears’ In the Zone, premieres January 13 on “Making the Video” at 6:30 p.m. ET.
Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera aren’t exactly in the same Mickey Mouse Club anymore.
The pop stars, who planted separate kisses on Madonna a few months ago during a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, are now trading insults about each other’s careers and personalities.
In the December issue of Blender magazine, Aguilera said of Spears, ”She seemed very distant, even during rehearsals. Every time I tried to start a conversation with her — well, let’s just say she seemed nervous the whole time. … She seems to me like a lost little girl, someone who desperately needs guidance.”
Spears responds in the magazine’s January issue, ”I can’t believe Christina said that about me.”
Then Spears relates a story about seeing Aguilera, her former friend and fellow Mouseketeer, for the first time in two years: ”She comes up to me in a club in front of all these people and tries to put her tongue down my throat!
”I say, ‘It’s good to see you,’ and she goes, ‘Well, you’re not being real with me.’
“I was like, ‘Well, Christina, what’s your definition of real? Going up to girls and kissing them after you haven’t seen them for two years?’
”A lost girl?” Spears says. ”I think it’s probably the other way around.”
