Jamie Lynn Spears cancels book tour after sister Britney slams moneymaking stunt
Jamie Lynn Spears has cancelled her book tour, stating that she did not write the book to make money. She claims that the book is about her own childhood experiences that she wished to share with the rest of the world. Some of the stories in her book 'Things I Should Have Said' may seem unnecessary, but she believes they are necessary for her to bare to the world so she can move on with her life.
Britney has publicly slammed her sister's new book, which she says Jamie is selling at her expense as Jamie has highlighted certain incidents which might portray Britney in a bad light. "It was actually kind of nice having a fever so high cause I had to surrender to not caring. I just couldn't give a f**k but my head hurt so bad," Britney wrote on Twitter. "The 2 things that did bother me that my sister said was how my behavior was out of control. 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?"

Jamie Lynn Spears responded to this with a statement, saying that, "Brit, I am always here for you, you know behind the scenes I have always been here. It's become exhausting when conversations, and texts we have in private don't match what you post on social media." The statement continues, "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 added, "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." To conclude her statement, Jamie Lynn said: "There are no sides, and I don't want drama, but I'm speaking my truth to heal my trauma, 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."

After all this mess, Britney made her own statement on Twitter saying, “Jamie Lynn…I don’t think your book is about me at all…I said some harsh things because you obviously hurt me by the things you are making up about me!” Britney often acknowledges her sister's hard work and she has spoken openly about how her father, James Spears, treated her while she was young. She wants Jamie to accomplish what she wants and she concluded by saying “Say whatever you want to say, just know I do know your real heart more than anyone!” Britney wrote on her Twitter. “It’s your life and you deserve a beautiful life!”

Even after all of this, Jamie made her intentions regarding this book clear from the start. This wasn't a money making project for her, and she believes it is more vital for her to spend time with her children rather than go on a book tour. She just wants the book to be a breakthrough moment after everything she's been through and allow her to move on.
