Jamie Lynn Spears Hits Back At Britney Spears, Says Book is ‘Not About Her’

Jamie Lynn Spears has hit back at her sister Britney Spears, after the pop star challenged claims made in her new memoir, Things I Should Have Said.

Singer Britney Spears had taken to Twitter on Thursday to reveal that she had watched her younger sibling’s interview on Good Morning America, which was first broadcast on Wednesday, as she also accused her of selling “a book at my expense.”

Hours later, former Zoey 101star Jamie Lynn Spears shared a statement on her Instagram account, in which she said that the book is “not about” her sister.

“Last thing I want to be doing is this, but here we are… It’s hard to see these posts, as I know the world also feels,” the mother of two wrote. “I just wish her well. Brit, I am always here, you know behind the scenes I have always been here.

“It’s becoming exhausting when conversations, and tests we have in private don’t match what you post on social media. I know you’re going through a lot and I never wan to diminish that, but I also can’t diminish myself.”

She continued: “Quite frankly, the things being said are absolutely not the truth, and I have to clarify that, because now it’s getting harder for me to rationalize to my oldest daughter why our family continues to get death threats, as a result of their aunt’s vague and accusatory posts, especially when we know she could tell the truth, and put an end to all of it in one second if she wanted to.”

Jamie Lynn Spears went on: “Sadly, after a lifetime of staying silent, I have come to realize this isn’t going to be a reality, and I may have to set the record straight myself in order to protect mine and my family’s well being.”

“That being said, I hate to burst my sister’s bubble, but my book is not about her,” she continued. “I can’t help 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.”

She concluded: “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.”
