Tim Kash of MTV UK spoke with JC Chasez on Monday (February 19), where the former *NSYNC star came to the defense of his friend Britney Spears. “This poor girl is in the middle of a divorce,” Chasez argued. “There is no denying it. I’ve known her since she was 12 years old. She is one of the sweetest people you have ever met. She has a heart of gold. A divorce at 25 is never going to be easy. The one person that she trusted more than anybody in the world now, is not with her. It’s a transition and I genuinely feel bad for her. I mean sure she goes out with a beer and cigarette in her hand and everybody flips out. She is 25 kids! It’s not illegal.” Download and watch at JC-Source.net.
