Britney Spears’ first ex-husband, Jason Alexander, is claiming the singer’s new engagement to Jason Trawick is fake, the Huffington Post is reporting. Alexander reportedly blames Spears’ management team for the annulment of their marriage, and is looking to cast doubt on her engagement.
The childhood friend to Spears said “if you look at all the pictures between (Spears and Trawick) there is no connection. They look like they are going through the motions. It seems like an answer to the court thing.” Alexander, who married Spears in 2004 in Las Vegas and received an annulment 55 hours later, was referring to the conservatorship Spears’ father, Jamie, assumed over her in 2008. If the singer marries, the conservatorship will likely end.
While currently training for the World of MMA fighting competition, Alexander added “Sort of a nice way to sew it all up, she marries her handler. I think it’s fake and I think people are afraid to say it.”
However, Spears’ second ex-husband, Kevin Federline, who is the father of her two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, said he’s happy for her. “I think (Trawick) is a great guy. She’s happy; she doing really well. I want to say she’s in a good place.” Federline added the engagement is “a good step in the right direction.”
