Jamie Lynn Spears Not Going On A Book Tour After Claiming Tell-All Is 'Not About' Sister Britney Spears
Jamie Lynn Spears will reportedly not be embarking on a book tour for her upcoming memoir.
The bombshell tell-all Things I Should Have Said is expected to hit shelves Tuesday, January 18, and will cover everything from the Zoey 101 alum's childhood trauma, her daughter's near-fatal accident, and of course, her relationship with older sister Britney Spears.
Despite the anticipation surrounding her memoir, Jamie Lynn will not be setting off for a book tour to promote her story, TMZ reported.
The 30-year-old actress appears to be less concerned with book sales and more focused on sharing her truth and healing from her past, according to the outlet. She is also planning to donate a percentage of the proceeds to a series of unnamed charities.
The news comes just days after the Sweet Magnolias actress tried setting the record straight about her book, writing, "I hate to burst my sister's bubble, but my book is not about her," via Instagram on Friday, January 14.
"I can't help that I was born a Spears too, and that some of my experiences involve my sister," she continued in her lengthy statement. "I've worked hard since before I was even a teenager, and I've built my career in spite of just being someone's little sister."
Following Jamie Lynn's bombshell Nightline interview with Juju Chang last week, Britney didn't hesitate to call out her younger sister for trying to "sell a book at my expense."

The Princess of Pop also accused Jamie Lynn of never having "to work for anything," while insisting her family still tries to make her "look like the crazy one," following her controversial conservatorship, which she was placed under in 2008.
"My family loves to pull me down and hurt me always so I am disgusted with them!," the 40-year-old expressed in a Twitter statement last week. "Psss lesson learned from all this don’t trust people or anyone … make your cats and dogs your family and take care of your own dam self!"
In response to Britney's statement, Jamie Lynn said her sister's comments were "absolutely not the truth," despite her "vague accusatory posts."
Most recently, the former Nickelodeon star tried asking Britney to handle the ongoing rift "privately like sisters should," in an Instagram post on Sunday, January 16. "In the meantime, please stop continuing the narrative that I haven't been there for you or that I'm making things up."
Jamie Lynn also told Chang during last week's interview that she "took no steps" to be a part of Britney's conservatorship despite the "Toxic" singer's previous claims. The younger Spears sister even claimed she tried to give the pop icon a way out of her restrictive conservatorship, but to no avail.
"I'm happy to share how many times I've reached out to you, supported you and tried to help you," Jamie Lynn added in her Instagram post, concluding: "This is embarrassing and has to stop. love you."
