Although they were married for only 55 hours–Britney Spears’ childhood pal, Jason Allen Alexander, has been thrust into the public spotlight. Speaking to both Access Hollywood and Inside Edition from his home in rural Kentwood, Louisiana the 6’2″ junior at Southeastern Louisiana University said his wedding on Saturday (January 3) began while he and Spears were watching the movie the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in their Palms Casino Hotel room in Las Vegas. He also insisted they were both sober. “We were just chilling in the room, about 3:30, and we had so much fun, just looking out at the city and the lights, and we were, ‘We’re in Las Vegas, let’s do something. Let’s go get married,'” Alexander told Inside Edition. He added, the decision to get a quickie annulment was mutual and came to them the very next day.
Alexander said he and Britney remain close, though pals are saying that Alexander is actually hurt that Britney didn’t take the marriage seriously. Jared Prescott, described by the New York Post as Alexander’s best friend, claims that Alexander, who reputedly had been secretly dating Britney, meant what he said in his marital vows. “No one gets married as a joke, that would be stupid,” Prescott told the Post.
In the annulment papers filed by Spears’s lawyers (and made public by the Smoking Gun Web site), it says, in part: “Plaintiff Spears lacked understanding of her actions to the extent she was incapable of agreeing to the marriage because before entering in the marriage, the plaintiff and defendant did not know each others’ likes and dislikes, each other’s desires to have or not have children, and each others’ desires as to a state of residency.” The papers also stated that Spears is not pregnant and there is no property to be divided.
