Britney Weds, Annuls Marriage

Singer hitches and ditches in Vegas

By |

Britney Spears' label said she "took a joke too far" on Saturday morning when she married a childhood friend in a quickie ceremony in Las Vegas, only to file for an annulment a few hours later.

Spears, 22, was dressed in jeans and a baseball cap at the Little White Wedding Chapel on Vegas' famous Strip, where she wed Louisiana native Jason Allen Alexander, also 22. The bride was escorted down the aisle by the limousine driver, who drove her and Alexander from a bar at the Palms Casino and Hotel to the chapel.

The ceremony was held at 5:30 a.m., and the paperwork for the annulment was filed later that day. The annulment will be made official when the courts open this morning.

The marriage was the first for both.
