Jamie Lynn Spears is starting to get fed up with internet trolls.
Following her sister Britney Spears’ bombshell testimony at her conservatorship hearing on Wednesday, June 23, Jamie Lynn is starting to speak her mind about the whole fiasco.
On Friday, July, 2, the Zoey 101 alum shared a message on her Instagram story, writing, “Hi, I respect that everyone has the right to express themselves, but can we please stop with the death threats, especially death threats to children,” she wrote before signing the message “JLS.”
The story post comes only a few days after Jamie Lynn originally broke her silence concerning her sister’s legal woes regarding and 13-year-long conservatorship.
“I think it’s extremely clear that since the day I was born I’ve only loved and adored and supported my sister,” she said in an emotional Instagram video on Monday, June 28.
“I mean this is my freaking big sister before any of this bull s**t. I don’t care if she wants to run away to the 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. I have nothing to gain or lose either way. This situation does not affect me because I am only her sister who is only concerned about her happiness.”
Fans and internet trolls have also questioned Jamie Lynn’s loyalty to her sister, especially after hearing Britney’s 23-minute testimony detailing the “abuse” she has suffered under her conservatorship.
But Jamie Lynn insists that she has always been there for her big sis. “Maybe I don’t support her the way the public would like me to with a hashtag on a public platform, but I can assure you I’ve supported my sister long before there was a hashtag,” she said in the clip. “And I’ll support her long after. Note that.”
Her older sister Britney has been under a conservatorship since 2008 following a public breakdown and divorce from baby daddy Kevin Federline. Since then, the “Toxic” singer has been unable to make major personal and financial decisions without approval from her father, Jamie Spears. (In 2019, Jamie temporarily stepped down as the conservator of Britney’s personal affairs; however, he and Bessemer Trust still have control over Britney'' finances.)
In her tearful testimony, the princess of pop opened up about her traumatic experience under the conservatorship for the first time.
"I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized. You know, fake it till you make it. But now I’m telling you the truth, OK? I’m not happy. I can’t sleep. I’m so angry it’s insane. And I’m depressed. I cry every day,” she told the judge.
Since then, Jamie Lynn has expressed how proud she is of the “Circus” singer. “I’m so proud of her for requesting new counsel like I told her to do many years ago,” Jamie Lynn said on Monday. “If ending the conservatorship or flying to Mars or whatever else she wants to do [will make her happy] — I support that, 100 percent. Because I support my sister. I love my sister. Always have, always will. As long as she’s happy. Let’s keep praying. That’s all.”
