Earlier in the video, Alexander could be seen walking through the "Toxic" singer's property, opening doors and continuously asking where Spears was located.
Spears and Alexander were married for a mere 55 hours in 2004 after a quickie marriage in Las Vegas before the union was annulled.
Following the shocking turn of events, an insider revealed the bride was a bit freaked out by the break-in. "Britney is shaken but doesn’t want to let this get her down," a source dished about Spears. "Everyone is thankfully safe, and Jason [Alexander] is no longer on the property."
Despite the scary situation, the chart topper's wedding appeared to be a star-filled event with guests like Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow in attendance. Spears rocked a stunning gown designed by Donatella Versace, who was also at the ceremony.
