The former husband of singer Britney Spears has spoken out about her long term use of cocaine, ecstasy, and “downers” such as valiums.
In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Mirror, Spears’ first husband Jason Alexander, 25, speaks about the time he had to save her from a possible overdose. According to Alexander, Spears’ took deadly MDMA capsules (otherwise known as pure ecstasy) before their whirlwind wedding in Vegas (which lasted 55 hours).
“I think we took too much.” explained Alexander. “We were taking capsules with pure MDMA inside. It wasn’t pressed up into a tablet. It was the purest of the pure. I am a pretty big guy and at the time I was weighing 220lb and was extremely fit. We took two of those things. And it knocked my d*ck in the dirt. Then it hit her and it hit her hard. In that situation, your body temperature heats up and you can die. She was sweating and overheating and her breathing was getting real slow. Other people were panicking. But we got her out the back and up to the suite.”
“I took her into the bathroom and threw her into the shower. She was unconscious. She tripped and fell. I was trying to hold her up and speak to her. She wasn’t moving. It scared me. I was f**ked up too and tripping out.”
“I couldn’t hold her up in the shower she was so f**ked up. She slipped and hit her head on the shower. I remember looking down at her all crumpled in the tub with the water coming down. She looked so white and lifeless I thought she was dead. I thought, ‘This b*tch is going to f**king die right here in front of me.’ “But I managed to get her colder and colder. I slapped her in the face and was shaking her.”
“Eventually, she came round and we were both just f**ked. So we lay there naked on the bathroom floor for hours just talking.”
According to Alexander, the drug use continued day and night.
“We used ecstasy at night to party and cocaine during the day to stay awake.” explained Alexander. “Then we would take downers like Valium or Vicodin to come down and rest. Britney stayed up three days straight over New Year. I couldn’t keep up. She definitely had a problem with drugs when we were together – and that was three years ago. She has got herself in a cycle which is hard to break.”
When asked about his thoughts regarding the recent events surrounding Spears’, Alexander replied:
“It freaked me out when I saw she had shaved off her hair – that was clearly a cry for help. The pictures have become increasingly disturbing. I have never said anything about Britney and drugs before but I am very, very concerned about her. She needs help. I don’t want to see her life come to an end. I am really worried that she will wind up like Anna Nicole Smith and be found dead.”
