Jamie Lynn Spears is speaking out on the #FreeBritney movement and her older sister Britney Spears’s conservatorship for the first time.
In a series of video clips shared to her Instagram Stories, Jamie Lynn defended her choice to not speak out regarding Britney’s conservatorship in recent years, per People. The Zoey 101 actress said that she didn’t feel it was right to speak up when Britney was unable to do so for herself. Jamie Lynn’s comments come shortly after Britney appeared virtually in Los Angeles court for the first time to request that her conservatorship helmed by her father, Jamie Spears, be lifted, also saying that being under the conservatorship for the last 13 years has left her depressed and traumatized.
“The only reason I hadn’t [spoken out] before is because I felt like until my sister was able to speak for herself and say what she felt she needed to say publicly that it wasn’t my place and it wasn’t the right thing to do,” Jamie Lynn said in her statement. “But now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel I need to say.”
She continued, “Since the day I was born, I’ve only loved adored and supported my sister. I mean this is my freaking big sister, before any of this bullshit. I don’t care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has done so many times before, because I have nothing to gain or lose either way. This situation does not affect me either way, because I’m only her sister who’s only concerned about her happiness.”
