Britney Spears' sister Jamie Lynn slammed for saying she supports popstar: 'You did nothing'
Britney Spears' sister, Jamie Lynn posted a series of videos on her Instagram stories, speaking in support of Britney, weeks after her conservatorship hearing. Jamie, 30, shared the videos on Monday, June 28. In the videos, Jamie explained why she remained silent post Britney's testimony at her conservatorship hearing and other grievances she has endured over the years.
Jamie started off by saying, "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." She added, "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." Britney Spears appeared in court and gave testimony regarding her controversial conservatorship for the first time on Wednesday, June 23.
Britney Spears calls for END to 'abusive' conservatorship, claims she wants to 'sue' family
Britney Spears conservatorship explained: How much does dad Jamie Spears earn and can she revoke his status?
During her conservatorship hearing, Britney spoke of her family and said, "They’ve done a good job at exploiting my life. So I feel like it should be an open court hearing and they should listen to what I have to say. A lot has happened since two years ago, the last time I was in court. I don’t think I was heard on any level when I came to court last time." She also added, "I would honestly like to sue my family, to be totally honest with you. I also would like to be able to share my story with the world, and what they did to me, instead of it being a hush-hush secret to benefit all of them."
Jamie, in her videos, did not address Britney's accusations on her family, but she insisted that she has “only loved, adored and supported" her. She said, "This is my freakin’ big sister before any of this bullshit. 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."Jamie Lynn further explained that she’s "made a very conscious choice" to "only participate in her life as her sister". She said, "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 that I have supported my sister long before there was a hashtag, and I’ll support her long after."
Jamie also addressed the accusations of living off Britney's conservatorship in all these years and said, "I’ve worked since I was 9 years old, I’ve paid my own freakin’ 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 like I told her to do many years ago." She continued, “If ending the conservatorship or flying to Mars or whatever the hell else she wants to do to be happy, I support that, 100 percent 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."
