Previously believed to be ended after the realization of poor judgement, the 55-hour marriage between Britney Spears and Jason Alexander seems to have a new story.
According to the couple’s divorce attorney, Mark Goldberg, Spears and Alexander were forced to split immediately by Britney’s mother, Lynne, with the blessing of her management.
"It was the mother interfering in and inserting herself into her daughter's life," he expressed in an interview with Daily Mail. "She came to Las Vegas, threw Jason out and got him a plane ticket home."
According to Goldberg, Alexander sought advice following the annulment and had hopes Britney would come back around.
"Jason was looking for advice,” Goldberg shared. “He was very emotional and upset. Britney had called him to come to Las Vegas. She was there with friends as I recall, and she paid for his airfare to come. As I remember it, it was Britney's idea to get married. He said they hadn't been drinking or doing drugs – or at least they weren't drunk."
In a podcast interview, Jason opened up about the infamous 55-hour marriage.
"They told me if I would sign the contracts — the annulment — they would let me and Britney continue our relationship, and if we felt the same way in six months they would give us a proper marriage," he told Toxic: The Britney Spears Story Podcast. "So I had no reason to believe otherwise. I thought that’s what the truth was. They were allowing Britney and I to still have phone communication."
To Jason’s dismay, Britney wed Kevin Federline only months later.
Britney has most-recently made headlines for her court appearance last month as she spoke out for the first time regarding the legal conservatorship of her father.
After being denied freedom from her father’s conservatorship after her court appearance last month, Spears was informed last week that she has been granted permission to hire her own attorney.
Spears selected Mathew Rosengart, whose representation is the next major step in an attempt to remove her father as her conservator and ultimately terminate the conservatorship.
