L.A, 2022-01-12 12:18:54. Jamie Lynn Spears opens up about strained relationship with sister
Jamie Lynn Spears opens up about what led to her strained relationship with her older sister, pop star Britney Spears.
The younger Spears said there was a misconception about her 13-year court-ordered role in Britney Spears, which ended last year after a judge removed the couple’s father, Jamie Spears, from overseeing her financial affairs and medical decisions.
“When the (guardianship) was put in place, I was 17, and I was about to have a baby,” Jamie Lynn Spears, 30, told JoJo Chang on ABC’s Good Morning America. “I didn’t understand what was going on and didn’t focus on it… I understand as little about it at the time as I do now.”
“I wasn’t overseeing the money or something, and if there is (this perception), it’s a misunderstanding, but either way I didn’t take any steps to be a part of it.”
The actress and singer best known on Nickelodeon’s hit show, “Zoey 101,” said Jamie Lynn Spears has gone above and beyond to help Britney Spears, now 40, explore options to get out of guardianship. New book, The Things I Should Have Said.
“I’ve always been my sister’s biggest supporter,” Jamie Lynn Spears told GMA. “So, when she needed help, I set up ways to do it, and went so far as to make sure she had the contacts she needed to move forward and end this guardianship and end all of this for our family. If it is going to cause such a great quarrel, why does it continue?”
“I’ve even spoken to her legal team, … her former legal team, and that didn’t end well in my favor,” she added. “I’ve taken steps to help. How many times can I take steps without… you have to walk through the door.”
Britney Spears testified twice last year that guardianship was “abusive,” claiming she was forced to perform, use contraceptives, and take medications against her will.
The Grammy winner has blamed her family for the guardianship Instagram posts since her termination. The “Baby One More Time” singer also recently unfollowed Jamie Lynn Spears on Instagram.
“That love is still there 100 percent, I love my sister,” younger Spears said on Wednesday. “I just loved her and supported her and did what was right with her. And she knows it. So, I don’t know why we’re in this situation now.”
