Lynne Spears was not on the guest list for Britney Spears’ wedding, but she shared a message about her estranged daughter and Sam Asghari’s big day.
Lynne Spears was not invited to her estranged daughter Britney Spears’ wedding to Sam Asghari, but she still had plenty to say about the nuptials.
After the singer shared some photos from the couple’s big day on June 9, her mom commented on one of her Instagram posts, saying, “You look radiant and so happy! Your wedding is the ‘dream wedding’! And having it at your home makes it so emotional and special! I am soooo happy for you guys! I love you guys!”
Lynne also liked a post from Sam’s sister Fay Asghari, who wrote on her Instagram page, “One of the most beautiful and emotional moments of my life was witnessing my brother’s wedding. I love you both so much @samasghari & @britneyspears.”
Also not invited to Britney’s wedding: Her father and longtime former co-conservator Jamie Spears, as well as her sister Jamie Lynn Spears.
Britney did not respond publicly to her sister’s or her mother’s social media responses. Many fans of the singer criticized Lynne for her posting. For more than a year, she and other members of the Spears family have been under fire from Britney’s supporters for allegedly not supporting her enough when she tried to end her legal guardianship, which the star had called abusive. The guardianship was terminated last November after 13 years.
Many fans also took to social media to point out that a week before Britney and Sam’s wedding, Lynne had liked an Instagram post by Jason Alexander, the singer’s first ex-husband. Jason Alexander was married to the pop star for 55 days in 2014 and was arrested for trespassing after allegedly crashing the star’s wedding. He had shared an article about how Lance Bass claims that there is “still a wall” around Britney, despite the termination of her guardianship.
In early November, a week before the guardianship ended, Lynne filed a petition requesting that Britney’s estate pay her legal fees and other costs totaling more than $660,000 incurred during the court battle. The papers say Lynne had discussed joining the guardianship, which until September was largely controlled by the singer’s father, as an interested party at length with the pop star, who reportedly “enthusiastically agreed.”
In April, Britney’s attorney filed a response stating, according to Billboard, “While [Lynne] had the right to hire her own attorney and pay from her own funds, this is indeed a matter between Lynne Spears and her attorneys, and there is no legal basis for placing Britney Spears in the middle of the matter.”
After Lynne filed her petition, Britney accused her mother on Instagram of “ruining” her life, claiming that she was the one who gave her estranged father the idea to take guardianship. Britney’s mother, who divorced Jamie in 2002, did not respond to her daughter’s post and her rep had no immediate comment when contacted by E! News.
