Jamie Lynn Spears has hit back at her older sister Britney, after she criticised her tell-all interview on Good Morning America.
The 30-year-old appeared on the show to promote her forthcoming memoir ‘Things I Should Have Said’, and spoke about Britney’s conservatorship battle.
After the interview aired, the pop singer slammed her sister on social media, and claimed she’s “never had to work for anything”.
Britney also accused Jamie Lynn of selling her book “at my expense”.
The Zoey 101 star has since responded to Britney’s comments in a statement shared on Instagram.
Jamie Lynn wrote: “Last thing I want to be doing is this, but here we are… It’s hard to see these posts, as I know the world also feels. I just wish her well.”
“Brit, I am always here, 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.”
“I know you’re going through a lot and I never want to diminish that, but I also can’t diminish myself.”
The 30-year-old continued: “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.
“Sadly, after a lifetime of staying silent, I have come to realize this isn’t going to be a reality, and I may have to set the record straight myself in order to protect mine and my family’s well being.”
“That being said, 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,” she wrote.
“There are no sides, and I don’t want drama, but I’m speaking my truth to heal my traumas, 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,” Jamie Lynn added.
