After Jamie Lynn Spears faced considerable backlash for not speaking out against the conservatorship that her elder sister, Britney Spears, has had to endure for years, Jamie has now revealed that her children are getting death threats. 

Jamie, 30, took to Instagram Friday, July 2, and claimed that she and daughters Maddie, 13, and Ivey, 3, had received death threats after the 'Toxic' singer's bombshell testimony about her conservatorship in court last week, where she called the conservatorship 'abusive'. She begged for the threats to stop. “Hi, I respect that everyone has the right to express themselves, but can we please stop with the death threats, especially the death threats to children. – JLS,” she posted on IG stories. She also took the time to explain why she had not spoken out sooner. “The only reason I haven’t [spoken] before is because I felt like until my sister was able to speak for herself and say what she felt she needed to say publicly, that it wasn’t my place and it wasn’t the right thing to do,” the actress said.

She added: “I think it’s extremely clear since the day I was born that I’ve only loved, adored and supported my sister. I mean, this is my freaking big sister, before any of this bulls–t. I don’t care if she wants to run away to a 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, because I have nothing to gain or lose either way,” Jamie Lynn said. “This situation does not affect me either way because I am only her sister, who is only concerned about her happiness.”

Regardless of Jamie explaining her stance when it comes to her sister's conservatorship, she continued to be slammed by the 'Free Britney' movement on Twitter. One of the users wrote, "@jamielynnspears stop playing the victim. Your sister is the victim. Her kids are the victims.. You are NOT a victim. You're a horrible greedy person with no talent. Everything you have is bc of Britney. If it weren't for her you'd be flipping burgers for minimum wage." Another said, "Fake eyebrows, no lips...she looks like her dad. Nothing compared to Britney. She's jealous of her sister. #FreeBritney"

A third commented, "ALSO can we all please take the time to laugh at Miss Jamie Lynn Spears thinking she was ever anything other than Britney Spears' little sister? Poor hun I think she's lost someone direct her to delusionalville!!!!! #FreeBritney #LockupJamieLynn." The next noted, "For 13 years Britney Spears has been forceably under a conservatorship. With separation from her children and denied human rights as people steal money and manipulate her for personal gain. Jamie Lynn, a family member has failed to actively speak against the conservatorship." A commenter tweeted, "@jamielynnspears Shame on you and your family for putting Britney threw so much. Karma is doing its thing and Britney will be free!! #FreeBritneyNOW" A person reacted with, "Now Jamie Lynn Spears tries to act like she's in support of Britney,I don't buy it one bit because remember,the devil knows how to cover his tracks and hide. #FreeBritney"







However, there were some who understood Jamie's plight and agreed with her request that the death threats against her family should stop. "I don’t agree or endorse in anything that includes death threats. Jamie Lynn Spears is a bad person but sending her death threats won’t help Britney, please know better than to stoop that low. This movement is for Britney and her abusers will be held ACCOUNTABLE! #FreeBritney," one said, while another wrote, "Nah, I think Britney’s silence after Jamie Lynn spoke out saying she was always supportive of Brit and is now receiving death threats, and Brit not speaking on it says everything!" One more remarked, "The talented @jamielynnspears covering her sister Britney's 'Baby One More Time'. Just read that she and her kids received death threats from Britney fans. I hope they stop. Jamie Lynn said she advised Britney to change counsel years ago."
