Jamie Lynn Spears Gives Her Two Cents On Sister Britney’s Conservatorship Appeal
Britney Spears has been on an uphill battle petitioning for the end of her conservatorship for years, and recently came before a court in Los Angeles last week with an official statement appealing for her freedom.
In the midst of it, her younger sister, Jamie Lynn, has finally broken her silence and expressed her thoughts on the situation via her Instagram stories on Monday (28th June) saying that the only reason she’s kept silent throughout this whole ordeal was because she felt that until her sister was ready to speak for herself publicly, it wasn’t her place and it wasn’t the right thing to do and that she wants nothing but happiness for her sister.
“Since the day I was born, I’ve only loved adored and supported my sister. I mean this is my freaking big sister, before any of this bull****. I don’t care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has done so many times before, because I have nothing to gain or lose either way,” said the 30-year-old.
Jamie goes on to state that she has “nothing to gain or lose either way” and is “only concerned about her happiness.”
“I’m so proud of her for using her voice. I’m so proud of her for requesting new counsel like I told her many years ago – oh, not in a public platform but just in a personal conversation between two sisters.”
The famous pop star raised before the judge several issues concerning the abusiveness of conservatorship including preventing her from having a baby, leaving her house freely, forcing her to take medication prescribed to her through the judgement of her therapist at the time and meeting with her boyfriend.
The legal arrangement was instated in 2008 after the 39-year-old star suffered a mental breakdown. She would go on to make her comeback a year later, recording a new album and performing live up until late 2018.
In 2020, Spears began the legal process of removing her father, Jamie Spears, from being the sole decision-maker for her personal affairs, dictating her medical care and who would be allowed to visit her at her villa just outside Los Angeles.
