Britney Spears‘ younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears has broken her silence on the singer’s bombshell court testimony.
As reported, the Pop icon shared a harrowing account of her experience under conservatorship – a legal agreement that has governed her personal and professional life for thirteen years
Spears’ remarks shocked many, whose jaws were left ajar upon hearing her articulate that she has been “lying” about being happy. Instead, she stressed that she feels “depressed” and “cries every day” because of the conservatorship – which she describes as “abusive.”
Insisting that she is no one’s “slave,” she unpacked a version of events that alleged medical impropriety, unfathomable levels of control exerted over her, and a diminished relationship with her family (who she says she wants to sue).
Naturally, it’s placed an intense spotlight on said family – with those who haven’t spoken out being just as scrutinized as those who have.
After being swarmed on social media, Jamie Lynn has issued a statement.
Her words below…
Sharing a video message via Instagram Stories, the 30-year-old declared her and love and support for Britney:
“I felt like until my sister could speak for herself and say what she felt she needed to say publicly, it wasn’t my place and it wasn’t the right thing to do. But now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel I need to say.
I think it’s extremely clear that since the day I was born that I’ve only loved adored and supported my sister. This is my freakin’ big sister before any of this bulls—. I don’t care if 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 the way she has so many times before. I have nothing to gain or lose either way. This situation does not affect me either way because I am only her sister who is only concerned about her happiness.
I’ve made a very conscious choice in my life to only participate in her life as her sister. Maybe I didn’t support her the way the public would like me to with a hashtag on a public platform. But I can assure I have supported my sister long before there was a hashtag, and I’ll support her long after. Note that. I’ve worked since I was 9 years old, I’ve paid my own bills since I was 10 years old. Not that I owe the public anything because my sister knows I love and support her. That’s the only person I owe anything to. I’m not my family — I’m my own person. I’m speaking for myself. I’m so proud of her for using her voice. I am so proud of her for requesting new counsel.
If any of the conservatorship is flying to Mars or whatever the hell else she wants to do to be happy, I support that, 100%. Because I support my sister. I love my sister, always have, always will, as long as she’s happy. So let’s keep praying. That’s all.
With that, what are…
