The annulment of Britney Spears’ marriage to childhood sweetheart Jason Alexander was the first insight into the singer’s powerlessness over her own life and has had a devastating impact on it ever since. This is the view of now retired divorce attorney Mark Goldberg who is speaking out for the first time in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com.
The Pittsburgh based lawyer has revealed how a distraught Alexander turned to him after he was kicked out of Britney’s life following their now infamous 55-hour marriage.
He has revealed that neither Britney nor Alexander wanted the annulment which, he said, was forced on them by the singer’s mother and management. And he has recalled how Alexander reached out to him in a series of emotional phone calls seeking advice after the singer’s mother threw him out of their Las Vegas hotel suite and his new bride’s life less than three days after their marriage in January 2004.
According to 80-year-old Goldberg the case stuck with him even though Alexander did not go on to retain his services because he, ‘felt sorry for the kid,’ who, he told DailyMail.com, was clearly in love with Britney and hopeful that they might have a future together.
Britney made headlines with her bombshell testimony in an LA court last month when she blew the lid off the conservatorship in which, she claims, she has been imprisoned for the past 13 years.
In a lengthy and passionate address, she furiously demanded to have her father Jamie, 69, removed as her conservator and claimed that, among other things, the conservatorship has prevented her from marrying her boyfriend of five years, Sam Asghari, 27, or even removing her IUD so that she can have children with him as she wants.
