Jamie Lynn Spears is speaking up to address her sister Britney’s emotional plea in court to terminate her conservatorship.
Jamie Lynn broke her silence on the matter and shared that all she wants is “happiness” for her older sister and that she will always support her. “I just want to take a second to address a few things,” Jamie Lynn began in the video message on her Instagram stories.
“The only reason I hadn’t 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. But now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel I need to say.”
“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 bulls-. 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,” she continued. “This situation does not affect me either way, because I’m only her sister who’s only concerned about her happiness.”
Jamie Lynn continued by explaining she had made a “very conscious choice” to “only participate” in Britney’s life as a sister ever since she was a child. “I paid my freakin bills since I was 10 years old. Not that I owe the public anything, because my sister knows I love and support her… I’m not my family. I’m my own person. And I’m speaking for myself,” she said.
Jamie expressed that she’s “very proud” of Britney for speaking up and added that she has always supported her sister in her own way. “Maybe I didn’t support the way the public would like me to with a hashtag on a public platform but I can assure you that I support my sister long before there was a hashtag and I’ll support her long after,” she said.
“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,” she continued.
To conclude the message, she said, “If ending the conservatorship and flying to Mars or whatever the hell else she wants to do to be happy, I support that 100% because I support my sister; I love my sister. Always have, always will. As long as she’s happy. So let’s keep praying. That’s all.”
