Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney Spears’ 30-year-old sister, has spoken out after the pop singer testified in court on Wednesday about a “abusive” conservatorship.
Britney claimed in court that her family had “lived off of” her conservatorship for the past 13 years, among other things.
Jamie Lynn’s fans took to social media to accuse him of living off Britney and doing nothing to aid her.
Now, the younger sister has spoken up, speaking for almost two minutes on Instagram stories on Monday night.
“Hello everyone,” Jamie Lynn began, “I just wanted to take a moment to address a few things.” “The only reason I haven’t done so previously is because I thought it wasn’t my place or the appropriate thing to do until my sister was able to speak for herself and say what she felt she wanted to say publicly. But now that she’s spoken openly and said what she needed to say, I feel comfortable following her lead and saying what I need to say.”
The younger Spears stated that she has “loved and supported” her sister since the day she was born, and that she doesn’t care “whether she wants to run away to the rainforest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere or if she wants to come back and dominate the world like she has so many times before.”
Britney made numerous severe charges against her conservators, one of which is her father, Jamie Spears, during the court session.
Her conservators, according to the 39-year-old, would not allow her to see a doctor to have her IUD removed so she can have another child. She also claimed that she was coerced into performing.
Britney maintained that her family did little to assist her and that her conservators had a strong grip over her life. “And, to be completely honest with you, I’d want to sue my family,” she continued.
While people speculated about Jamie Lynn’s absence from her sister’s life, saying she profited on Britney, Jaime Lynn stated that this is not the case.
“I’m just her sister, and all I care about is her happiness,” Jamie Lynn explained. “I’ve made a very deliberate decision in my life to just be involved in her life as her sister and as an aunt to those guys.” Jamie Lynn has two children, Maddie and Ivey, and Britney has two sons, Jayden and Sean.
Jaimie Lynn, who featured on Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101” as a youngster, remarked, “I mean, I’ve worked to pay my own freakin’ bills since I was 10 years old.” “Not that I owe anything to the public; my sister knows I love and support her, and she is the only person to whom I owe anything.”
Jamie Lynn also stated that she had supported her sister “long before there was a hashtag,” implying that she was referring to the #FreeBritney campaign.
“I’m very proud of her for speaking up. I am extremely proud of her for seeking fresh legal advice, as I advised her to do many years ago” Jamie Lynn expressed her thoughts. “Oh, not in front of a large crowd, but in a private chat between two sisters. As a result, I’m really proud of her for taking that move.”
Britney’s colleagues and fellow pop artists have also been chastised online for failing to express their support during her continuing court struggle to remove her conservators. Christina Aguilera, who co-starred with Britney on “Mickey Mouse Club,” issued a message on Instagram and Twitter on Monday night.
“I’ve been thinking about Britney and all she’s going through these past few days,” Aguilera said, with a photo of herself and Britney as youngsters. “It is intolerable that any woman, or human, who wishes to be in charge of her own destiny may not be permitted to do so.”
Every woman should have the right to her own body, reproductive system, and privacy, according to the singer. “While I am not inside the closed doors of this extremely complex & intimate but public debate,” she added, “all I can do is speak from my heart on what I’ve heard, read, and seen in the media.”
The day after she testified in court, Britney released a statement on social media. She said, “I apologize for faking like I’ve been OK for the past two years,” presumably referring to her prior social media statements.
“I did it out of pride and because I was embarrassed to disclose what had happened to me, but who doesn’t want to have a good time on Instagram?”
“I’m bringing this to people’s notice because I don’t want people to believe my life is wonderful,” she added. “And if you’ve seen anything about me in the news this week, you already know it’s not true!!!!”
