In January 2004, Britney Spears married her childhood friend from Louisiana, Jason Allen Alexander, at The Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. However, Spears was advised to file for an annulment after just 55 hours of marital bliss. Though sources claim Spears was drunk when the two decided to get hitched, George Maloof Jr., owner of the Palm Casino Resort, told the AP, "I was with her the whole night. None of those reports were accurate. She was just having a good time."
