The pop star said she saw Jamie Lynn’s “Good Morning America” interview and was bothered by the comment that her behavior was out of control.
“[Jamie Lynn] was never around me much 15 years ago at the time, ”Britney said. “So why are they talking about it at all unless she wants to sell a book at my expense?”
Jamie Lynn addressed an alleged rift between the sisters and told the talk show that she “had only ever loved and supported” Britney, “so I do not know why we are in this position right now.”
She apparently referred to Britney’s unhappy reaction after Jamie Lynn performed a medley of remixed Britney songs at the 2017 Radio Disney Awards.
“I know it may sound like a stupid thing to most people, but I wrote a lot of my songs and my sister was the baby,” Britney said in her statement. “She was never supposed to work for anything. Everything was always given to her !!!! ”
Last year, Britney slapped her sister on social media, suggesting she had played a role in the conservatory, largely controlled by their father, which limited Britney’s authority to control her own life and finances. The conservatory was terminated in November. Britney reportedly not followed Jamie Lynn on Instagram earlier this month.
Jamie Lynn has just published the memoir, Things I should have said, which deals with the work of Nickelodeon, her teenage pregnancy and the media survey she received as a child star.
