London, November 2 : Britney Spears has put her 55-hour former hubby Jason Alexander on the pay roll to be her butler, according to pals.
The pop icon, who has stunned all with her gradual return to stability, offered the job to her childhood pal after learning that he had squandered the 300,000 divorce settlement paid by the singer.
The 26-year-old is trying to help out buddy Jason who has been struggling with his acting and singer career and lived in a grimy flat since the couple split four years ago, according to her close friend.
"She's going to give Jason all the support she can and make sure he has a decent income so he can keep his dreams alive," the Daily Star quoted the friend as saying.
The pop princess, whose Las Vegas marriage to Jason ended in less than three days, is said to be happier with 'the butler' around.
The friend said: "He's proving to be a real tonic for her."
