Britney Spears’ first ex-husband, Jason Alexander, isn’t convinced by his former wife’s engagement to Sam Asghari and he’s not exactly being quiet about it. Alexander sat down with “Inside Edition” on September 14 to chat about Spears’ news, telling the outlet, “If it’s real, it’s awesome.” When asked if he thought Asghari popping the question was “real,” he then replied, “No.” Yikes!
Though it’s not clear exactly why Spears’ ex doesn’t believe what he’s seeing, he’s claimed on more than one occasion to still be in touch with the pop superstar and even said he’d supposedly spoken to her on the way to the interview. He shared an update on how she’s doing amid her ongoing conservatorship battle, saying, “She’s good, she’s mentally stable, she’s fine,” but couldn’t get the star on the phone during the interview.
As for what Alexander thinks of Asghari? Well, it sounds like he’s not necessarily his biggest fan. Alexander told the outlet, “[Asghari is] really the only person that’s been around for a few years, so without him she would’ve been alone,” adding that he was “trying to be nice” about his ex-wife’s boyfriend.
Alexander also made it pretty clear he still has feelings for Spears all these years after their infamous Vegas wedding. “I’ve always loved her. I’m always going to love her. If she’s happy with Sam and that’s going to happen, I’m happy for her,” he said.
