Britney Spears‘ first husband has claimed that he was misled by the singer’s team about his relationship with the singer.
Jason Alexander – who was married to the Toxic hitmaker in 2004 for just 55 hours after a 4am Las Vegas wedding – was made to sign legal documents with the impression that they would stay together and eventually marry in the ‘right way’ in the future.
He said: ‘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.

‘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. So we were talking every day and I still believed the story I was told, that they were going to let us continue to talk and then we would have this marriage, right, in the future if we felt the same way.’
Jason tried to make contact with Britney after 30 days but the line had been disconnected.
Speaking on the podcast Toxic: The Britney Spears Story, Jason added: ‘Literally the day after, like, the 30 days was up, I remember trying to call the number I had for Britney and it was like, “Beep, beep, beep [like it had been disconnected]”. I’m like, “F*** they got me! Motherf******!’ So that was it.”

Jason previously spoke out about Britney’s conservatorship following her bombshell court testimony in June where she complained of the ‘abusive’ arrangement which left her feeling depressed.
Twitter account @FreeBritneyLive posted what they claimed to be an exclusive statement from Jason, where he allegedly said that Britney’s testimony ‘didn’t even scratch surface’ of the abuse that has gone on over the years.
The person purporting to be Jason wrote in the message that he was ‘forced to sign an NDA but cannot in good faith stay silent about the things I saw happening.’
The message reads: ‘Even back in the day we all saw signs of Jamie’s greed. He had his daughter on a tight chain then just like he does now.’
‘I don’t want to get into it too much because it ain’t my story to be telling but when Britney does finally do any interview or write a book or whatever she chooses to do if she chooses to do that, I can say with fact the things she reveals will be bone chilling to the core.
‘Her testimony last week doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of everything she’s been had to endure and it goes beyond the 13 year conservatorship,’ it went on.’
Meanwhile, Britney is said to be feeling optimistic about ending her conservatorship.
Jason and Britney are seen here at their 4am wedding in 2004. Afterwards, Jason claims her team made him sign the annulment with the promise the could keep dating. ‘Literally the day after, like, the 30 days was up, I remember trying to call the number I had for Britney and it was like, “Beep, beep, beep [like it had been disconnected]”.’
A judge approved the 39-year-old singer’s request to hire her own private attorney for the first time since her conservatorship began 13 years ago and Britney is hopeful that she will soon be in charge of her own affairs again.
A source told E! News: ‘Britney’s doing great. She really does feel like she’s on her way to freedom. All she wanted was a lawyer who believed in her and will fight for her,” the insider explains.
‘She just wants to get out of the conservatorship and for the first time she feels like that actually may happen. She’s very happy right now.’
Britney has appointed former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart as her attorney.
In her corner: Jason is pictured here at a Free Britney rally in 2020. Earlier this month, a person claiming to be Jason spoke out about the conservatorship after Britney’s bombshell court testimony, saying: ‘Even back in the day we all saw signs of Jamie’s greed. He had his daughter on a tight chain then just like he does now.’
And she was so excited that she shared a video of herself doing cartwheels.
She wrote: ‘Coming along, folks … coming along !!!!! New with real representation today … I feel GRATITUDE and BLESSED !!!! Thank you to my fans who are supporting me … You have no idea what it means to me be supported by such awesome fans !!!! God bless you all !!!!! Pssss this is me celebrating by horseback riding and doing cartwheels today !!!! #FreeBritney (sic)’
Britney’s boyfriend Sam Asghari commented: ‘Internet is about to explode #freebritney (sic)’
Britney had previously been represented by court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham since her conservatorship began in 2008, but he resigned on July 6 after the singer claimed she was never informed she could try to end the conservatorship.
