Britney Spears called out her sister Jamie Lynn Spears in a lengthy Twitter post on Thursday, after the latter gave an interview on Good Morning America to promote her upcoming book Things I Should Have Said, in which she has opened up about their relationship and the pop star’s 13-year long conservatorship.
In a series of tweets, Spears wrote about how she watched her sister’s interview with a fever. “It was actually kind of nice having a fever so high cause I had to surrender to not caring,” she wrote.
Specifically refuting Jamie Lynn’s claim that her behaviour had been ‘erratic, paranoid and spiralling’ over the years, Spears wrote, “My sister said that my behaviour 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?”
“I know it may sound like a silly thing to most people but I wrote a lot of my songs and my sister was the baby. She never had to work for anything. Everything was always given to her,” she further stated.
During the interview conducted by ABC News’ Juju Chang, Jamie Lynn said that she had always supported her older sister and had tried to help her get out of the conservatorship. “I’ve always been my sister’s biggest supporter,” she had said. “So when she needed help, I set up ways to do so, went out of my way to make sure that she had the contacts she needed to possibly go ahead and end this conservatorship and just end this all for our family. If it’s going to cause this much discord, why continue it?”
Addressing her feelings towards her family, Spears wrote in her note that they had ruined her aspirations and had gaslighted her, clearly expressing her disgust for their actions.
Responding to these tweets, Jamie Lynn took to Instagram on Friday and said that “the things being said are absolutely not true.”
“I hate to break 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,” she continued.
Reiterating that she loves her sister and does not want any drama, Jamie Lynn concluded, “It’s time to put an end to the unhealthy chaos that has controlled my life for so long.”
