“Look familiar? Jason Allen Alexander is here!” a fan captioned a photo of the 38-year-old outside Stanley Mosk Courthouse on Wednesday, August 19. “Britney’s famous childhood friend turned 55 hour husband (remember her Las Vegas wedding?) is here to support the #FreeBritney movement and rally here in LA.”

Spears, 38, married Alexander in Las Vegas in January 2004, but the union was annulled a mere 55 hours later. She went on to wed Kevin Federline in October 2004. Although they divorced in July 2007, the exes share sons Preston, 14, and Jayden, 13. She has been dating boyfriend Sam Asghari since late 2016.

Alexander reflected on the nuptials in February 2012. “She just came out and asked me,” he told ABC News at the time. “She was like, ‘Well, let’s get married.’ And I was like, ‘Sure. You know, let’s do this.’”

Spears’ childhood friend considered the move heartfelt. “I went with my feelings,” he said. “I was in love with her. … I feel like she felt the same way.”

Now, the pop star has requested to have her father, Jamie Spears, removed as her conservator, according to court documents obtained by Us Weekly earlier this month. Her lawyer claimed in a filing that the Grammy winner is “strongly opposed” to her dad returning to the role after stepping back amid health concerns. The papers also allege that she does not want to end her conservatorship, despite the #FreeBritney movement.

However, a source told Us Britney has something else in mind for her future. “Britney does want the conservatorship of her as a person to end, but she was concerned that Jamie could attempt to have the temporary conservator removed,” the insider said. “There has been significant improvement in Britney’s overall medical treatment plan, which has been attributed to no longer having her father in charge of her personal life.”

Jamie, for his part, slammed #FreeBritney protestors earlier this month. “All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything,” the 68-year-old told Page Six on August 1. “The world don’t have a clue. It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.”
