On Friday, July 9, it was announced that the Zoey 101 alum, 30, is reportedly set to release a memoir titled I Must Confess: Family, Fame, and Figuring it Out in January 2022. The title includes a nod to the "I must confess" lyric from Britney’s 1998 hit single "…Baby One More Time.”

However, a page for the publisher's website that previously described the book's contents — and title — has since been removed.

Meanwhile, a description for the book on Amazon notes, "Southern Roots will reveal the details behind Jamie Lynn’s highest and lowest moments. She shares never-before-heard stories that are at times funny, inspiring, messy, and uncomfortable. Like having her mom’s credit card declined at Limited Too when her sister was on the radio. How it feels to have inspired16 and Pregnant with her own life story. Why her daughter’s ATV accident caused her to reevaluate and redirect her life. And why her family is just like any other family." (It's unclear whether or not the book will be titled I Must Confess: Family, Fame, and Figuring it Out or Southern Roots.)

The announcement of Jamie Lynn’s upcoming book comes just days after the New Yorker revealed she is the only person in Britney's immediately family to not receive a monthly paycheck from the pop star. Following the revelation, Jamie Lynn later took to Instagram to share a screen grab of an article with the headline "Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn shares photos of her home life…after it’s revealed she is the ONLY family member not on the singer’s payroll,” in which she wrote alongside the shot, “Facts….now leave my broke-a** alone.”

The topic of who in Britney’s brood profits off of the “Toxic” singer has come into question amid the controversy surrounding her conservatorship. On June 23, the former pop star shared an impassioned testimony during a court hearing in which she alluded that she believed her loved ones would prefer that the 39-year-old remain in the "abusive" arrangement. "Considering my family has lived off my conservatorship for 13 years, I won’t be surprised if one of them has something to say going forward, and say, 'We don’t think this should end, we have to help her,’" Britney said. "Especially if I get my turn exposing what they did to me."

Britney and Jamie Lynn’s father Jamie reportedly receives a monthly salary of $16,000 as a co-conservator of the Crossroads star’s $60 million estate, according to The New York Times.

Following Britney’s bombshell testimony, her younger sister took to Instagram to make it clear she supported Britney “long before there was a hashtag,” saying, "I don't care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has so many times before, because I have nothing to gain or lose either way."

Meanwhile, Jamie Lynn's upcoming book isn't the only way she's putting food on the table. On Thursday, July 8, the actress took to Instagram Story to celebrate wrapping up filming a project. Though she didn't reveal which project it was, Deadline reported in May that she was promoted to a series regular in the second season of Netflix's Sweet Magnolias.
