Britney Spears is an American singer and performer. She is also known as “Princess of Pop” as she influenced the revival of the pop music genre in the late 90s. She first rose to fame back in 2000 after the release of her second studio album Oops!….I did it again. This album made her the best-selling teenage artist of all time. The pop artist has been in the news since last week after she accused a Catholic Church of not letting her and Sam Asghari get married there.
Britney Spears slams the Catholic Church
In a now-deleted Instagram post, the Toxic singer accused the church for not letting her have her wedding there. On Tuesday, she uploaded a picture of the inside of a church to her Instagram with the caption “This is where I originally wanted to get married during COVID“. The caption continued with her saying the church was closed for 2 years due to COVID. And now, when she went there to get married, they told her she had to be a catholic to get married there.
Spears then asked her 41.8 million Instagram followers “Isn’t church supposed to be open to all?“. While some of her fans tried to blast the church along with her, some tried to reason that at least one of the partners needs to be Catholic in order to get married in a Catholic Church.
The Church Issues a Statement
St. Monica Catholic Church issued a statement on Wednesday. A representative for the same spoke on Wednesday and revealed that Britney Spears never visited the church. On top of that, she never asked the church to host her nuptials as well. The rep did mention that at least one of the partners should be Catholic for the couple to get married in the House of Worship. It is a ‘ground rule’ across the board.
Britney Spears married Sam Asghari in the backyard of her mansion in June. The wedding was attended by many big names. Spears’ family didn’t attend the wedding due to the ongoing feud of her 13-year-long conservatorship.
