VENTURA, Calif.— A California judge ruled there was enough evidence to hold Britney Spears’ ex Jason Alexander to answer to a felony stalking charge, two weeks after he crashed the pop star’s wedding and demanded to speak to her.
Ventura County Senior Deputy District Attorney said Alexander could face a maximum five years in jail if he is convicted of the charges, which includes three other misdemeanor counts, including trespassing, refusing to leave private property, vandalism and battery.
Richard Eubler, a security guard, testified at the hearing that he saw Alexander enter Spears’ house as preparations for the pop star’s nuptials to model and actor Sam Asghari were taking place. Eubler said Alexander was able to get to the second floor of the house and tried to open Spears’ bedroom door, which was locked.
Spears was inside the room at the time and initially didn’t know that Alexander was in her home, the security guard testified.
“I was just at the staircase and that’s when he backed up and started reaching out of his right hand pocket,” Eubler said.
Not knowing what Alexander had in his hand, Eubler said he reached for his weapon. Eubler said Alexander then went into a gameroom.
Eubler said he then shut the gameroom door behind him, leaving just Alexander and himself inside.
“He was just yelling for Britney,” Eubler said. “He said, ‘Fuck it. I’m going back inside the way I came.’”
The two struggled inside the gameroom and that’s when Alexander allegedly elbowed and then punched him as Alexander tried to open the gameroom door and get back inside the main part of the house, Eubler testified.
Alexander ended up breaking the door handle, Eubler said.
In footage he posted to Instagram and played during the hearing , Alexander could be seen inside the pop star’s home and even showed viewers a tent in the backyard where she was set to marry Asghari.
Alexander conducted a livestream in what looked like Spears’ home on her wedding day, and claimed he had been invited to the celebration. A physical struggle ensued before his phone camera cut out.
Spears previously was granted a protective order against Alexander, who was ordered not to contact Spears and Eubler. Those orders were extended to June 13, 2025 by a judge.
Alexander can’t contact Spears or the security guard through any form of communication, including texts, calls or social media, the judge said.
Asghari was not granted anything because he didn’t request it, Meister told The Post.
Alexander remains on $100,000 bail and is set to appear again in court on July 12.
Eubler also testified that the wedding incident was not the first time Alexander had tried to enter the property. He said he had also seen and recorded Alexander trying to access the property on May 28 through a public hiking pathway that surrounds the back of Spear’s home.
“I said, ‘Hey, Jason! Stay away from the property. You’re being watched,” Eubler said of the May incident.
Ventura County Sheriff’s Deputy Jose Torres, who also testified during Monday’s preliminary hearing, said Spears’ talent agent told him the pop star was distraught after she found out that Alexander had been in her home.
“I asked him what he observed and he described her (Spears) as distraught, crying, shaking, panicked,” Tores said. “She was asking security what happened and that Alexander was just outside her bedroom door. He described her as being very scared.”
Torres said the agent told him that Spears was so scared that she and Asghari left the house to “try to calm down” but returned later to prepare for the wedding.
