Britney Spears’ ex-husband Jason Alexander has said he was misled by his team into agreeing to sign an annulment ending their marriage.
Jason, who married Britney in Las Vegas in 2004 before their union was called off just 55 hours later, claimed he was made to feel like they would stick together and get married “properly” at the future if he signed the papers.
He said on the podcast Toxic: the story of Britney Spears: ‘They told me that if I signed the contracts – the cancellation – they would let me and Britney continue our relationship, and if we felt the same in six months, they would give us a real marriage.
“So I had no reason to believe otherwise. I thought it was the truth. They allowed Britney and I to still have phone calls.
“So we were talking every day and I still believed in the story I was told, that they were going to let us keep talking and that we would have this wedding, right, in the future. if we felt the same. “
Jason claims that when he tried to contact Britney after 30 days the line was disconnected, adding: “Literally the next day like, the 30 days were 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 ** k, they got me! Holy shit! ”So that was it.
Jason had appeared on the podcast after traveling to Los Angeles to participate in a Free Britney rally amid his ongoing battle to remove guardianship.
It comes after Britney celebrated a judge granting her the right to appoint her own lawyer in her trusteeship case, following the resignation of her court-appointed representative, Sam Ingham.
She posted a video of her riding a horse and cartwheeling as she wrote, “Come on people… come on !!!!! New with real performance today… I feel GRATITUDE and BLESSED !! !!
‘Thanks to my fans who support me… You have no idea what it means for me to be supported by such awesome fans !!!! God bless you all !!!!! Pssss it’s me celebrating by riding and cartwheels today !!!! #FreeBritney. ‘
The Toxic star is campaigning for an end to the rule, to which she has been subjected since 2008 after her public break-up, allowing her to regain control of her personal and financial decisions after 13 years.
