ALL THE LAME BRITNEY HEADLINES ARE TAKEN


Sorry for posting this, but check out the quotes. This shit should not be allowed to get into print. The quotes are so clearly lies.
Talk about whirlwind. The two might have performed the quickest marriage-to-annulment escapade in the history of Sin City.

“That was fast,” said attorney Brian J. Steinberg, who practices family law in Las Vegas. “I’m not even sure they had time to have sex.”

Clark County Family Court Judge Lisa M. Brown signed the annulment order at 12:24 p.m. at the behest of prominent Las Vegas attorney David Chesnoff.

“There is no marriage now,” Chesnoff told The Associated Press. “Jason agreed to this completely. They’ve made a wise decision. I know they care about each other. They are friends.”

It took the judge about two hours to act on the “complaint for annulment” filed in Family Court shortly after 10 a.m.

Plaintiff Spears lacked understanding of her actions to the extent that she was incapable of agreeing to the marriage,” the annulment petition said.

Spears married Alexander — who hails from Spears’ hometown of Kentwood, La. — about 5:30 a.m. Saturday at a Las Vegas wedding chapel. She was not intoxicated during the ceremony, according to a friend who spoke to her several hours afterward.

She woke up that morning a “little stunned” that she tied the knot, according to the friend, who spoke on condition of anonymity.


Of course, the emphasis was mine. The AP doesn't bold words in its copy.

update 18:59 I didn't even see this in the original story, but AP just sent a name-check correction down.

The correction: Eds: CORRECTS Justin to Jason in lead; ADD penultimate graf with Spears sneaking out of the Palms hotel early Monday morning
