Britney Spears demands that sister Jamie Lynn Spears leave her from her book tour for her new memoir, "Things I Should Have Said".
Britney, 40, has asked her talented lawyer Mathew S. Rosengart to join the fight, and has issued a powerful termination letter, obtained exclusively by Page Six, to her younger siblings.
In it, "Stronger" singer Jamie Lynn, 30, lets it be known that she "will no longer be bullied" in favor of book sales.
"Dear Mrs Spears: As you know, I represent your sister Britney Spears, and I am writing at her request on the above matter. We are writing with some hesitation because the last thing Britney wants is to draw more attention to your poorly timed book. and its misleading or outrageous allegations about her, ”the letter begins.
“Even though Britney has not read and does not intend to read your book, she and millions of her fans were shocked to see how you have exploited her for financial gain. She will not tolerate it, nor will she. ”
The letter goes on to remind Jamie Lynn of the "abuse and transgression" that Britney has endured through her 13-year-old conservatory, established by the estranged father Jamie Spears to gain control of the singer's personal, medical and financial affairs.
"You of all people know the abuse and the misdeeds that Britney had to endure during the conservatory, after growing up with a 'destructive' alcoholic father. In fact, your own book reportedly says that your father spent most of my life in that cycle. of destructive behavior. His drunkenness gave me periods of pain and sorrow, '”the letter continues.
"As I have said before, Britney will no longer be bullied by her father or anyone else after enduring a 13-year-old conservatory that deprived her of civil rights and fundamental freedoms."
The letter is eager to point out the entertainer's role as "breadwinner" in the Spears family - and criticizes Jamie Lynn for "sending out false or fantastic complaints" to get publicity for her memories.
“Britney was the breadwinner of the family and she supported you otherwise as well. Public posting of fake or fantastic complaints is wrong, especially when it is designed to sell books. It is also potentially illegal and defamatory, ”the letter states.
"Michelle Obama famously said, 'when they go low, we go high,'" the letter continues, "and to Britney's great honor, that's exactly what Britney wants to do at the moment.
"You said recently that the book was not about her." She takes you at her word and we therefore demand that you stop mentioning Britney derogatoryly during your campaign. If you fail to do so or defame her, Britney will be forced to consider and take all appropriate legal action. "
Jamie Lynn has made a myriad of claims about Britney in her book, recently supported by a number of media appearances.
In a Twitter message sent over the weekend, Grammy winner Jamie Lynn asked to stop "telling lies" about her on her press tour.
In a follow-up message, Britney explained it she loved Jamie Lynn "unconditionally", though she still processes pain from what she sees as her sister's inaction to help her finish the conservatory.
Even after Jamie Lynn asked Britney to address their feud "privately" over the phone, the former "Zoey 101" star appeared on the "Call Her Daddy" podcast to post more private moments from the pop icon's life. (Part two of Jamie Lynn's "Call Her Daddy" podcast is scheduled to air Wednesday, though Britney's letter may prevent its release.)
During an explosive speech to the court in June 2021, Britney claimed that during her father's watch she was forced into a psychiatric institution, prescribed lithium and had a spiral contraceptive inserted, all against her will.
Jamie Lynn has claimed that she once provided Britney with "contacts" who could help end the restrictive legal arrangement, but claimed that the superstar refused her help. With Rosengart by his side, however, the Britney Conservatory was finally closed in November 2021.
Britney has previously said she would like to "sue [her] family "for their roles in her conservatory, sparing neither brother Bryan nor mother Lynne Spears - the latter of whom Britney has accused of giving Jamie the idea for the conservatory along with former business manager Lou Taylor.
Britney has also claimed she wants her father accused of "conservatism abuse" and sent to jail.
