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."
