Britney Spears’ ex-husband Jason Alexander has refuted her claims that they only got married because she was “very drunk” and “bored with her life.”
The 64-year-old American actor and comedian claimed the couple were “very much in love” and didn’t drink before they tied the knot in Las Vegas in 2004.
The former couple, who had been friends since childhood, were married for just 55 hours before the marriage was annulled.
In her new memoir, The Woman In Me, Britney, now 42, describes getting drunk in Sin City on a New Year’s trip with her friend Paris Hilton.
She wrote: “He and I were fucked up.” I don’t remember the evening at all, but as far as I know he and I were sitting around in the hotel room staying up late watching movies – “Mona Lisa Smile” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” – and then had the brilliant idea of going there “A little white chapel at 3:30 in the morning.”

Claims: The American actor and comedian, 64, has insisted the couple were “very much in love” and did not drink before they decided to tie the knot in Las Vegas in 2004
Britney added, “People have asked me if I love him.” To be clear, he and I were not in love. “I was just honestly very drunk – and probably, in a more general sense, very bored at that time in my life.”
But since the publication of their autobiography, Jason has denied their claims and insisted they had not been drinking, something their officer also described as such.
Jason told TMZ, that he still loves and cares for Britney, but would only accept a signed copy of her book so he can sell it to the highest bidder.
The marriage, which took place on January 3, 2004 at A Little White Wedding Chapel, was annulled three days later on January 5.
Britney detailed her family’s reaction to her Vegas wedding – which she described as “innocent fun.”
She said: “They made way too big a deal out of innocent fun.” “Everyone has a different perspective on it but I didn’t take it seriously.”
Adding: “Everyone has a different perspective on it, but I didn’t take it too seriously.” “I thought a crazy wedding in Las Vegas was something people might do as a joke.”
“Then my family came and acted like I had started World War III.” “I cried the rest of the time I was in Las Vegas,” the star said.

Britney added that her family was “so against the wedding” that she “started to think maybe I had accidentally done a brilliant act.”
She said: “Because I realized: Something about me being under their control and not having a stronger connection to anyone else had become very, very important to them… Maybe it’s worth mentioning that I was supporting them financially at that point. “.’
In 2008 – four years after her Las Vegas wedding – Britney was placed under conservatorship for 14 years – until a judge ended it in 2021.
In 2022, Jason attempted to derail Britney’s wedding to Sam Asghari by livestreaming his attempt on Instagram.
He was convicted of assault and aggravated trespassing for the incident, which occurred almost twenty years after their wedding.
