As we all know that Britney Spears and her sister, Jamie Lyn are in a public feud. Recently, the singer send her younger sister a cease and desist letter. According to her lawyer, Jamie Lynn Spears is spreading lies through her book. Therefore, she should stop using her name to promote the book. It all began when the younger Spears sibling went on a promotional tour of her book, Things I Should Have Said.
During an interview with Good Morning America, Jamie Lynn Spears talked about Britney Spears.
In order to promote her upcoming book, Things I Should Have Said, Jamie Lynn went on GMA. During the interview she talked about her relationship with Britney Spears, her conservatorship and other stuff. At the same time, she claimed that her sister’s behavior had started to get out of control in 2002. Similarly, she narrated an incident when Britney Spears took a knife and locked them both in a room. In response to this, Pretty Girls singer called her sister out and asked her to stop spreading lies. She said:
“She was never around me much 15 years ago at that time. So why are they even talking about that unless she wants to sell a book at my expense??? REALLY???”
As expected, Britney Spears sister also took to social media to react to her statement.
Although Jamie Lynn have stated many incidents about Britney Spears, she claims the book is not about her. In a social media post, she responded to her sister’s criticism and said:
“I hate to burst my sister’s bubble, but my book is not about her. I can’t help that I was born a Spears too, and that some of my experiences involve my sister. 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.”
Furthermore, she said:
“There are no sides, and I don’t want drama, but I’m speaking my truth to heal my trauma, so I can close this chapter and move forward, and I wish my sister could do the same. No matter what comes, I will always love my big sister, and be here for her. It’s time to put an end to the unhealthy chaos that has controlled my life for so long.”
Recently, Britney Spears send her sister a cease and desist letter over her book.
After going back and forth on social media, Britney Spears have decided to take legal action against Jamie Lynn and her book. According to her lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, Jamie Lynn’s memoir is ill-timed and contains misleading claims against Britney Spears. Furthermore, he said:
“Although Britney has not read the book, she believes her sister has “exploited her for monetary gain. She will not tolerate it, nor should she. Publicly airing false or fantastical grievances is wrong, especially when designed to sell books. It is also potentially unlawful and defamatory. You recently reportedly stated that the book was ‘not about her.’ She takes you at your word and we, therefore, demand that you cease and desist from referencing Britney derogatorily during your promotional campaign. If you fail to do so or defame her, Britney will be forced to consider and take all appropriate legal action.”
So far, Jamie Lynn have not responded to the cease and desist letter. However, she will surely reply in a matter of time.
