Britney Spears and Jason Alexander failed to consummate their brief marriage, according to the singer's now ex-husband.

Alexander - who married childhood pal Spears in Las Vegas on Saturday morning (3JAN04) before having their union annulled just 55 hours later (5JAN04) - insists, although the pair share an attraction, they have never had and never will have a relationship.

He says, "There are definitely feelings between us and we have a good friendship, if nothing else.

"There has probably been some romance, but nothing like a boyfriend/girlfriend-type thing.

"It was more than just a friendship. It was a good, real relationship and it just led to a one-night marriage in Vegas.

"I guess it was fun. No, it was more than just fun."
