Jason Allen Alexander, who was married to Britney Spears, was arrested in Los Angeles, accused of failing to comply with a restraining order, in a new clash of the actor with the law.
Alexander, 40, was the singer’s first husband and became known for that fact and for his constant conflicts with the police. Now, it was learned that the man was arrested last December 30, allegedly for violating a restraining order. For the fact, he ended up in prison in Williamson County, Tennessee, United States.
The charges he is accused of are serious: harassment, violation of a restraining order, in addition to various charges of recidivism in these crimes.
His bail, which was $ 30,000, has already been deposited in court and thus, he was released on Tuesday, January 4, as confirmed Us Weekly. The same media also reveals that Alexander will have to appear for trial on February 17.
Jason Alexander, a childhood friend of Britney Spears and the singer’s first husband, accused of harassment.
A troubled man
This is not the first problem Jason Alexander has with the law. In January 2021, Britney Spears’ ex-husband was arrested for driving under the influence of illegal substances, in addition to the possession, use and distribution of drugs.
A few months later, in August, he was arrested again for attempting to break into the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) security zone at the Nashville airport. Both cases remain open and pending trial.
His name became known around the world on January 3, 2004, when he married Britney Spears, his childhood friend. The wedding took place during a night out at a casino from Las Vegas. But the marriage was more than fleeting, as the artist’s parents ended the abrupt union just 55 hours later, and the marriage was annulled.
Associated with one of the most difficult and controversial stages of the singer’s life, in the petition to the court, Spears’ family detailed that Britney “was not aware of her actions.”
He didn’t want to get away from her
Despite having been the result of a night full of alcohol and bad decisions, Alexander has always maintained that he never wanted to separate from the singer, and accused the artist’s environment of forcing him to get away from her and break that relationship under deceit.
“They told me that If I signed the annulment, they would let us continue our relationship, and that if we felt like getting married in six months, they would let us celebrate a proper wedding “, revealed Alexander, months ago, in an interview with the podcast Toxic: The Britney Spears Story.

“I had no reason to believe otherwise, I thought they were telling the truth. They let us have telephone contact and I thought they would let us continue talking and get married in the future, “he said. According to Alexander, after the annulment, the artist’s team changed Britney’s phone and cut off all contact with Alexander.
Despite his situation, Alexander reconnected with Britney, who later had another marriage to Kevin Federline, the father of her children, whom she also divorced.
However, the artist seems to have left those conflicting relationships behind and last year formalized her commitment to the actor Sam asghari, whom he plans to marry soon.
