Los Angeles [US]: Singer Britney Spears has called out a church in Los Angeles for refusing to host her wedding.
Britney shared a since-deleted Instagram of an unidentified couple getting married in the church, with a caption claiming her original plans were to get married there, Fox News reported. “I wanted to go every Sunday… it’s beautiful and they said it was temporarily shut down due to COVID!!!! Then 2 years later when I wanted to get married there they said I had to be catholic and go through TEST,” she wrote.
According to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, there is a required preparation course engaged couples must take before getting married in the Catholic church. And according to the Archdiocese of New York, one person in the couple must be a baptized Catholic to get married in the church.
