Britney Spears ha tenuto aggiornati i fan sui suoi piani di matrimonio mentre si preparava a sposare il fidanzato Sam Asghari. La coppia ha annunciato il fidanzamento a settembre 2021 quando la popstar ha pubblicato un video su Instagram in cui mostrava il suo anello di fidanzamento. “Non riesco a crederci”, ha scritto la Spears nella didascalia insieme a una serie di emoji ad anello. Il mese successivo, il cantante di “Toxic” ha detto ai fan che l’organizzazione del matrimonio aveva raggiunto un ostacolo. “Abbiamo una situazione difficile, un problema davvero grosso in questo momento. Non ho idea di dove voglio sposarmi”, ha detto in un video di Instagram pubblicato nell’ottobre 2021. “Non sappiamo se vogliamo sposarci in Italia , o in Grecia, Australia o New York City”, ha aggiunto Spears. Alla fine della clip, la Spears ha detto che avrebbe “chiesto aiuto ai fan” per scegliere un luogo.
As the big day approached, the "Mickey Mouse Club" alum teased details about her wedding. On May 8 she uploaded a photo to Instagram that gave a glimpse of her wedding dress. "And yes, this is the veil to my wedding dress," Spears wrote in the caption of a photo that saw a cat perched atop the veil. At the time it was unknown to fans just how quickly the wedding day was approaching.
On June 9, it was reported that Spears and Asghari were getting married that day in "an intimate ceremony," per TMZ. Later it was revealed, that the comparatively low-key affair would be missing a couple important guests.
Britney Spears' sons missed her wedding
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari's wedding was reported to have around 100 guests, but two important members of the singer's family would be noticeably absent. Neither of Spears's two sons — Sean Preston Federline, and Jayden Federline — would be attending her wedding, per TMZ. The information was confirmed to the outlet by Kevin Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan. "Although the boys will not be in attendance, Kevin and the boys are happy for Britney and wish her and Sam all the best going forward," the lawyer said on their behalf. The two boys were not the only members of the family that would be conspicuously absent from the big day, as neither of Spears' parents nor her sister Jamie Lynn Spears would be at the nuptials.
After a well-publicized battle to end her conservatorship, tensions remained high between Spears and certain members of her family. As the "Crossroads" actor and Asghari put the event together they decided to leave her family off the guestlist. "As of now, there will be none of her family who is invited to wedding," a source told Us Weekly in December 2021.
The "Stronger" singer wrote about her evolving relationship with her teenage sons on Instagram. "My boys' birthdays were last week ... and unfortunately they are growing up and want to do their own things," Spears wrote in September 2021. Earlier that year, in March 2021, a source said her two teenagers preferred "to stay out of the limelight," per Entertainment Tonight.
