Pop star Britney Spears marched down the aisle in Las Vegas, marrying a childhood friend from Louisiana, according to news reports.

The 22-year-old singer married Jason Allen Alexander of Kentwood, La., early Saturday at the Little White Wedding Chapel on the Strip, according to, the Web site for People magazine.

But an unnamed source close to singer told the Web site that the wedding was a joke that went too far and Spears is planning an annulment.

Calls to Spears’ representatives were not immediately returned.

The bride wore jeans and baseball cap, according to, and had a hotel bellman walk her down the aisle.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on its Web site that Spears and Alexander, 22, were granted a marriage license, citing an affidavit of Application for Marriage License filed Jan. 3. reported that Spears and Alexander journeyed to the Little White Wedding Chapel after a stop at the Ghostbar, a club in the Palms Casino Hotel. It reported that the chapel staff told the couple that they couldn’t get married without a license, so they were reportedly taken by the limo to the Clark County Marriage Bureau office in the downtown Las Vegas courthouse. They applied for and were granted the marriage license, then driven back to the chapel, where they were married.

Spears released her fourth album “In the Zone” in November. It debuted at the top of the album charts. She begins a concert tour March 2 in San Diego.
