The Blackout singer explained that she had sent the church to her wedding planner when she was coordinating everything for her special day with Sam. “I hired a wedding planner who has done Madonna’s wedding and plenty more. He was extremely expensive and yes my first request was to get married in that church pictured,” she wrote. “I was told 6 weeks later… I could not get married there.”

Aside from the wedding, Britney explained that she had planned to pop in at the church, but she was told not to “due to the pandemic.” Even though she seemed annoyed at the church’s response, she seemed to easily brush it off. “It’s not a big deal, but I don’t like being called a liar when their church says I never asked,” she wrote.
