Britney Spears, newly freed from her conservatorship, has been quick to use social media as a means of calling out her family on how she’s been treated. Apparently, Spears is not a fan of her sister Jamie Lynn’s new memoir, Things I Should Have Said, nor her promotional interviews.
On Thursday, January 13, Spears called out Jamie Lynn in a lengthy Twitter post, after Jamie Lynn’s Wednesday Good Morning America interview, in which she discussed their relationship. The singer wrote that she watched the interview with a fever of 104°F, and that “it was actually kind of nice having a fever so high cause I had to surrender to not caring.”
“The 2 things that did bother me that my sister said was how my behavior was out of control,” Britney Spears wrote in a Twitter thread. “She was never around me much 15 years ago at that time …. so why are they even talking about that unless she wants to sell a book at my expense??? REALLY???”
Spears’s airing of grievances continued, “Then where the lady mentioned why did she accuse you of doing remixes to her songs … I know it may sound like a silly thing to most people but I wrote a lot of my songs and my sister was the baby. She never had to work for anything. Everything was always given to her!!!”
It’s not the first time Spears has called out her sister on social media, but this time Jamie Lynn responded. She wrote an Instagram post of her own, responding to Britney’s claims: “Quite frankly, these things that are being said are absolutely not the truth.” She mentioned it was getting too hard to explain the death threats her family is receiving to her kids, hence why she’s breaking her silence on the matter.
“Brit, I am always here, you know behind the scenes I have always been here,” Jamie Lynn wrote in her post. “It’s become exhausting when conversations, and texts we have in private don’t match what you post on social media. I know you’re going through a lot and I never want to diminish that, but I also can’t diminish myself.”
JLS continued, “That being said, I hate to burst my sister’s bubble, but my book is not about her. I can’t help that I was born a Spears too, and that some of my experiences involve my sister. I’ve worked hard since before I was even a teenager, and I’ve built my career in spite of just being someone’s little sister. There are no sides, and I don’t want drama, but I’m speaking my truth to heal my traumas, so I can close this chapter and move forward, and I wish my sister could do the same. No matter what comes, I will always love my big sister, and be here for her. It’s time to put an end to the unhealthy chaos that has controlled my life for so long.”
