Britney Spears’s former husband, Jason Alexander, whom she was married to for a swift 55 hours, has joined the #FreeBritney movement.

Jason, who married the popstar in the famous A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas in 2004, was seen marching with people holding placards demanding justice for Britney amid her conservatorship battle on Wednesday.

Free Britney is a fan-driven movement that’s gained momentum recently, calling for the star to be ‘freed’ from the order which controls many aspects of her day-to-day life.

His appearance comes as overnight it was reported Britney’s father Jamie would remain in charge of the superstar’s conservatorship, despite the singer allegedly requesting he be removed.

Now her ‘ex’ has waded into the battle, telling Us Weekly that he has been in touch with the star ever since their famous, albeit short-lived union, and that he’d be up for a reunion should Britney be keen.

He told the website: ‘Oh, yeah, definitely. If they would give us an honest chance, you know? And she really wanted that. I’d give it a shot.’

Jason – whose marriage to Britney was later annulled – went on: ‘I’d love to be back in her life some way or another, but this conservatorship is holding that back from happening.

‘We never were given a shot the first time around. If there’s feeling still there, maybe we see where they go but that’s not — you know that’s on her.’

The Toxic singer’s dad Jamie has been the co-conservator of her estate and finances since 2008, giving him total control over her career decisions. He was forced to briefly hand over the reins last year to the 38-year-old’s care manager, Jodi Montgomery, when he became ill.

Britney filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court, asking the court to remove her dad from the conservatorship, fighting for Jodi to be given full control.

With regards to Britney, her financial and medical affairs are handled by her father and a legal representative.

Britney was first placed under a conservatorship in 2008 after suffering a series of mental breakdowns requiring medical intervention, and while the legal constraints of her conservatorship suggest she has little control over her life, a lawyer for Britney insisted last year that this was not the case, saying: ‘She’s always involved in every career and business decision. Period.’

The star herself appeared to confirm this by telling fans on social media: ‘You may not know this about me but I am strong, and stand up for what I want!’
