Jamie Lynn Spears claims to have received an apology from her estranged sister, Britney Spears - and shares the text message with the public in her new memoir.
"In a recent text message from my sister, she said to herself, 'I know it's not your fault, and I'm sorry I'm so mad at you. Even though I'm your big sister, I need you more. , than you need me and always have, writes the former "Zoey 101" star in "Things I Should Have Said".
Britney's representative did not respond when Page Six contacted to confirm the authenticity of the message.
The Spears sisters have been at loggerheads for years as Britney, 40, felt Jamie Lynn, 30, was not there for her during her conservatism fight.
Although it is unclear when the pop star sent the alleged mea culpa, the actress included it in the chapter of her book describing the bomb at the June 2021 court hearing, in which Britney said her family "should be in jail" to benefit from her almost 14-year-old conservatory, which was terminated in November.
"I pray for the day she shares these words with the world," Jamie Lynn writes of Britney's alleged apology. "I have no control over anything the media reports, and can not be held responsible for anything I have absolutely no control over."
While siblings may have repaired fences at some point, the release of "Things I Should Have Said" has reopened old wounds.
A source told Page Six exclusively last week that Britney "rolled her eyes" over Jamie Lynn, who talked about their split during TV interviews promoting her memoirs.
However, another insider said the "Sweet Magnolias" star "was not surprised by this reaction because it is the reaction she has received from her family all her life."
Britney, who did not follow Jamie Lynn on Instagram earlier this month, tried to end their feud with tweeting Saturday: "Come on !!! We're supposed to have each other's backs ... but what you say really confuses me !!! All I know is that I love you unconditionally !!! So go ahead and say what you want… it's so tacky for a family to fight in public this way !!! ”
Jamie Lynn, for his part, claimed to have "many times" tried to resolve their disagreements privately, writing on Instagram: "This is embarrassing and must stop."
