Britney Spears would be a happily married woman if only she’d stayed with her first husband — aka the one who lasted 55 hours. At least, that’s what Jason Alexander‘s father believes.

“Who knows what their lives could have turned into together? I bet for Britney, it would have been a lot less drama in her life for the last eight years,” Denny Alexander told Celebuzz.

In one of Tinseltown’s most short-lived marriages, Denny’s son famously got to be Mr. Britney Spears, albeit briefly, after a Las Vegas ceremony in Jan. 2004. Just 55 hours later, the singer had the marriage annulled.


Now Jason’s dad says he only wishes Spears’ handlers had left the childhood friends-turned-lovers alone to figure out their own future.

“If no one got involved and interfered, I have a feeling they would have played it right together,” Denny said. “They should have just let them two kids alone when they got married.”


Since calling it quits with her first hubby, Spears has been unlucky in love. In September 2004, the 31-year-old married back-up dancer Kevin Federline; they divorced just two years later and currently share custody of their two children, Sean Preston, 7, and Jayden James, 6.

After a well-publicized breakdown — during which she shaved her head and attacked paparazzi with an umbrella in 2007 — the “Oops!…I Did It Again” singer seemed to get back on track, hooking up with William Morris Endeavor agent Jason Trawick in 2009. The two were  engaged in Las Vegas in Dec. 2011, but called it off on Jan. 11.


The news came as a surprise to fans — but not to the Alexander clan.

Said Denny: “Jason told me, “I know Britney, and I knew that wasn’t going to last.”
