She claimed in an interview with NBC News: He “100 percent was threatening me with my life.”

Alli, who currently lives in Louisiana, told the outlet she “misses” the hitmaker.

She said: “When I think about how long she has had to endure this and it being 13 years, it just makes me so sad for her. I really do hope one day she’s able to tell her story if that’s what she wants to do.
“If she does, get ready because there’s more to that story than I’m sure anybody could ever imagine.”
Jamie’s rep could not immediately be reached for comment.

According to Us Weekly, an incident – which allegedly had Jamie in an altercation with Sean – led to a protected order which saw Britney had less visitation rights for Britney.
An insider told the outlet at the time: “[Jamie] is the reason she has far less custodial time with her sons than she did before.
“The incident with Jamie and Preston changed everything. It was a major blow for Britney.
“She, Kevin, Preston and Jayden have all seen Jamie differently ever since.”
