Recently in an interview with daily MailIn this, divorce attorney Mark Goldberg talks about Spears’ 55-hour marriage to Alexander.
According to Goldberg, the couple married shortly after Spears took Alexander to Las Vegas to party with him and his friends. At one point during the night, the singer suggested that they get married, to which Alexander agreed.
“As I remember, the idea of getting married was Britney’s,” Goldberg told the outlet. “[Jason] They said they weren’t drinking or doing drugs – or at least they weren’t drunk.”
The lawyer continued, “He was clear, they weren’t…they really loved each other…Jason was confused because he loved Britney and he didn’t want to hurt her.”

By noon, an annulment petition has been prepared. Although Spears and Alexander didn’t want their marriage to be annulled, Goldberg says she was forced to sign the papers by Lynn Spears and the “Gimme More” singer’s management team.

Since he loved Spears and wanted to be in her life, Goldberg says that Alexander went along with the demands of Lynn Spears and the management team.
“[Jason] Very scared of her mother and management,” Goldberg shared. “This was no stranger he had just picked up. They had known each other for years. He thought that if he played the game and did what they said, she would come, and he and Brittany would be together.”

Although Alexander was optimistic, Goldberg was skeptical because he saw how much control Spears’ family had over his life.
“[Britney] He gave in to his mother’s demands. Honestly, I’m sorry for the girl, and I’m sorry for that [Jason],” Goldberg expressed. “But she has been in the dire hands of her parents all her life – her mother, then her father who has earned so much money from her. There’s no love, no respect. there’s nothing there.”
He continued, “I truly believe that this particular incident had a detrimental effect on Britney Spears’ life – the way she was handled and the toll it took.”

I thought that was the truth. They were still allowing Britney and me to have phone communications.”
