Britney Spears’ first husband Jason Alexander has taken to Instagram to go on a rant and support the pop superstar following a weekend arrest at a Nashville airport.
Alexander, 39, married Spears in 2004 during a New Year’s trip to Las Vegas. The marriage between the pop icon and her childhood friend lasted just 55 hours before it was annulled.
The Louisiana native was arrested for a misdemeanor attempted air security violation on Sunday, USA Today reports. His bail was set at $2,500 and he was released sometime this week.
On Tuesday, he took to Instagram to post a live video from his inside his truck. While driving shirtless, he referred to the arrest as an “inconvenience.”
“What's happened to me should never happen to anybody,” Alexander maintained. “I did nothing wrong!”
Investigators claim Alexander left a secure area of the airport after going through security then returned the opposite way exit door without going back through security again, according to People.
"You end up in handcuffs for something stupid," Alexander added in his video. "The media and police are not your friends."
Also on Tuesday, Alexander posted on Instagram that Spears’ dad, Jamie Spears, is allegedly recording and intercepting the pop star’s phone calls.
In his video, Alexander referenced recent allegations that Spears struck one of her employees, saying “daddy [is] paying the media to smear campaign you basically. These outlets like Radar Online, TMZ - they get paid for these stories. I lived in Hollywood for 12 years.”
Alexander went on to say he is flying to Los Angeles this week to appear on Inside Edition. He has been a vocal supporter of the “Free Britney” movement; he also posted in July a photo of a 2006 cease and desist letter from Spears' lawyers after he was paid for a tabloid story. He also considered writing a book about her for half a million dollars.
"This is only one of many opportunities I lost bc of Britney s inc.." he wrote, along with the tag #FreeBritney
This weekend is not Alexander’s first brush with the law this year. He was arrested in Nashville in January for a DUI, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and possession or casual exchange of a controlled substance, Page Six reported.
He was also spotted present at the attack on the Capitol in January. He posted a selfie of himself wearing a Trump hat.
Alexander has not immediately responded to Oxygen.com’s request for comment.
