Britney Spears’ ex-husband Jason Alexander has opened up to DailyMail.com about his motives for crashing his ex-wife’s wedding in June.
Jason, 40, says he didn’t believe Britney, 40, was marrying Sam Asghari, 28, and had to see it with his own eyes.
‘I couldn’t let her get married with the conversations we’ve had over the last two years,’ he said. ‘I wasn’t there to cause harm.’
He said when they spoke just a few days before the wedding she didn’t mention anything about getting married to Asghari and he feared she was being forced into it. Jason said he had to make sure this is what Britney wanted.
‘It’s all for show. A Hollywood script,’ Jason said of the wedding, adding that he had to ensure Britney was doing what she wanted, especially after spending the last 13 years under a conservatorship.
DailyMail.com caught up with Jason, who showed off his buff physique and scrolled through is ex’s Instagram, while on a hike less than two miles from Britney’s California home. He is currently wanted by police after failing to appear in court for allegedly stealing his landlady’s $2,000 diamond tennis bracelet in 2015.
Childhood friends Britney and Jason wed in Las Vegas in 2004, but the marriage only lasted a total of 55 hours before annulment.
In a scene straight out of a Hollywood movie, Jason scaled a fence to gain entry to Britney’s home on her wedding day and was tackled by the singer’s security guards.
He was convicted of trespassing and battery last month and faces up to five years in prison.

‘I spoke to her the Monday leading up to the wedding and she didn’t mention anything about getting married,’ he says. ‘We talked about the people she hangs out with that calls her her friends. Business associates that profit off of her.’
‘Most people aren’t aware of what’s been happening in the background,’ he says.
Jason says he doesn’t think Britney looks happy now that she’s married and out of her conservatorship
The conversation lasted around 30 minutes and Jason tells DailyMail.com that he and Britney agreed that she would reach out to him on WhatsApp, but he became worried when he never heard from her.
Upon seeing news of the wedding in the media, he was felt inclined to go to her home to find out himself.
‘I wanted to see it for myself,’ he said.
Jason is adamant that he had no intention to hurt Britney and was only looking out for her best interest.
He insists that if he actually saw Britney that day, he never would have been arrested and the ‘outcome would have been different.’
However, if he had run into Britney’s now-husband Sam Asghari, Jason says, ‘I don’t know what would have happened, but that would have been interesting.’
‘No, I don’t think she looks happy. That whole thing is not real,’ he says.
‘It’s all for show. A Hollywood script.’
Jason admits that his appearance at the wedding was a jarring scene, saying, ‘It could look a little scary if you don’t know the history.’
When asked if he wants too see her perform again, he says without without skipping a beat, ‘I want to see her happy.’
‘I want her making her own decisions on who she can be friends with and who she can see,’ he says. ‘I was her making her own decisions, feeling like she has the freedom to choose what she does with her time.’
Shockingly, Jason appears to defend Britney’s family, despite the pop star herself bashing them.
‘We all make mistakes and family is family. Forgiveness is something we have to learn to do in our heart,’ he says.

Spears’ first husband filmed himself crashing the pop star’s fairytale wedding armed with a knife and dressed in a white prison jumpsuit.
He was initially charged with felony stalking, refusing to leave private property, vandalism and battery.
Cops said he gained entry to the private ceremony – whose star-studded guest list included Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Madonna and Drew Barrymore – by scaling a fence into the exclusive gated community where Spears’ home is situated.
He then climbed down a rocky slope to get onto the singer’s 20-acre property.
Running toward Spears’ 12,464-square-foot Italian-style villa while capturing it on his cellphone camera, he screamed: ‘I’m Jason Alexander. The first husband. I’m here to crash the wedding.’
He would then enter the wedding tent where the nuptials were soon to be held, shouting: ‘She’s my first wife, she’s my only wife.’
Jason can be seen in aerial footage being escorted off the property. He has been charged with two counts of battery, one of vandalism and one of trespassing

After fighting with Britney’s security guards, he was wrestled to the ground and later arrested – an altercation a guest was able to capture on his own cellphone camera.
After the attack, Britney was granted a restraining order against her former beau, after she and Asghari told cops that Jason was carrying a knife when he was arrested.
One of Britney’s security team also said Alexander entered had tried ‘multiple times’ to open the singer’s locked bedroom door on the second floor of the mansion, with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department later confiscating a box cutter and other items from Jason.
One of the security guards involved in the incident was also granted a restraining order against Alexander.
Following his arrest, a judge ordered that he would not be allowed ‘to contact, annoy, harass,’ Spears and her new husband, a personal trainer from Iran, and not to come within 100 yards of them for the next three years.
He was locked up on $100,000 bail.
