    When did Jamie Lynn write her book?

    On October 11, 2021, Jamie Lynn announced she had finished writing her memoir, Things I Should've Said.

    She took to Instagram to say: "I know I still have ALOT of learning to do, but I feel like finishing this book gave me closure on this '30 year long' chapter of my life, and hopefully helps anyone else out there who forgot their worth, lost their voice, or is trying to break an unhealthy cycle in their life.

    "Which is why, I’m so happy to announce that a portion of my book proceeds will be going to @thisismybrave, because I know how scary it can be to share personal struggles, especially if you don’t feel you have the support or a safe space to do so, and they are doing amazing work to support and encourage people as they bravely share their experiences."

    Were Britney and Jamie Lynn close?

    Britney Spears and her younger sister have had a tumultuous relationship amidst drama surrounding Britney's conservatorship.

    Strained relationship, continued

    Jamie Lynn then opened up about her involvement in the conservatorship, sharing that Britney asked her if she "could be the person who assured that her boys got what they needed.”

    Britney shares two sons, Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Federline, 43.

    Jamie Lynn then said she "didn't want to be part of" her sister's conservatorship and wanted to wait to help her until it was over.

    She continued: "There was no, like, me overseeing funds or something like that and if that was, then it was a misunderstanding.

    "But either way, I took no steps to be a part of it.”

    After calling herself Britney's "biggest supporter," Jamie Lynn claimed she tried to give her the resources to get out of the conservatorship.

    She said: "When she needed help, I set up ways to do so.

    "Went out of my way to make sure she had the contacts she needed to possibly go ahead and end this conservatorship and end this all for our family.”

    The sisters' strained relationship

    Britney and Jamie Lynn had a strained relationship as the pop star fought her family in court amid conservatorship drama.

    In interviews this week, Jamie Lynn opened about how her sister's conservatorship legal win.

    When asked for her "reaction to when the conservatorship was dissolved," Jamie Lynn said she was “happy."

    She continued: "When it was put into place, I was a 17-year-old.

    "I was about to have a baby, so I didn't understand what was happening nor was I focused on that.”

    "I was focused on the fact that I was a 17-year-old about to have a baby.”

    Jamie Lynn speaks out, part two

    Jamie Lynn also revealed that her family had sent her away to a remote cabin, where she had no contact with the outside world for weeks.

    "It felt like I was suffocating… I felt like what was I going to do, I was just a kid," Spears told Chang when asked about why her story makes her emotional all these years later.

    "Maybe this isn't my best interest and maybe this is what I'm supposed to do because of course I don't want to be hounded by the paparazzi or the tabloids and allow them to control my narratives but it felt like I was really being alienated," she continued.

    Jamie Lynn speaks out

    Jamie Lynn Spears gave her first public interview since her sister's conservatorship ended on January 12, 2022.

    During the Good Morning America interview, she addressed her falling out with Britney as well as her upcoming memoir.

    What is a conservatorship?

    Legal and financial conservatorships are arranged for people who cannot make their own decisions in their own best self-interest.

    One example could be an elderly adult or someone with some cognitive impairment.

    Since 2008, Britney has been under conservatorship due to a series of public meltdowns after apparently suffering a mental health crisis.

    Who was Britney previously married to?

    In 2004, the pop star was married to her childhood friend, Jason Allen Alexander, for only 55 hours. The marriage was annulled following a petition to the court alleging that Britney did not understand her actions.

    Later that year, Britney got married to dancer Kevin Federline, and they had two sons together. Britney filed for divorce from Kevin in November 2006, just two months after the birth of their second son, Jayden James, and the divorce was finalized in 2007.

    Britney lost custody of her two sons to Kevin in October 2007.

    The pop star is currently engaged to personal trainer Sam Asghari, who she's been linked to since 2016.

  • Jennifer Korn

    Who is Britney's fiancé?

    Sam Asghari is engaged to Britney Spears.

    He is a personal trainer from Iran. The 27-year-old has been linked to Britney since 2016.

    "I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves," Asghari said previously in a statement to People.

    "I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together."

  • Jennifer Korn

    Does Britney want more children?

    Spears said that she wants to marry and take out her IUD to have another baby.

    However, the singer, who has been in a relationship with boyfriend Sam for years – claimed she was unable to grow her family because her "conservator won't let her."

    Speaking via audio during a previous court proceeding, Spears said: “I want to get married and have a baby.  

    “I wanted to take the IUD out and have a baby but conservator won't let me because they don't want me to have a baby.”

    Spears' conservatorship was terminated in November, and she has since been engaged to Sam.

    Britney's shocking claims, continued

    Britney said her silence over the years has mistakenly been interpreted as complicity, stating: “I’ve lied and told the whole world, ‘I’m okay, I’m happy.’ I’ve been in denial, I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized.“

    Additionally, Britney claimed nurses watch her every move and she’s not allowed to change her clothes in private.

    She added her father was controlling and “enjoyed” the power over her.

    “I cried on the phone for an hour and he loved every minute of it,” the singer said. “The control he had over someone as powerful as me, as he loved the control to hurt his own daughter 100,000%.”

    Britney's shocking claims

    During a past hearing in June, Britney made a number of shocking claims regarding the conservatorship.

    Britney gave a sensational testimony in front of a court and pleaded with a judge to end the arrangement, saying it is “doing me way more harm than good.”

    She told the court she wants to marry her boyfriend Sam Asghari, 27, and have a baby, but that the conservatorship won’t allow it.

    The couple have since become engaged.

  • Jennifer Korn

    Did Britney choose the conservatorship?

    No. The pop star was involuntarily placed under her conservatorship in 2008.

    She was placed under the conservatorship following her admission to a psychiatric ward, which came after police suspected the pop star was under the influence of an unidentified substance.

  • Jennifer Korn

    When did Britney's conservatorship begin?

    Jamie first became in control of his daughter’s estate when Los Angeles Supreme Court granted him as her conservator in February 2008. 

    In addition to the singer’s dad gaining control of her assets, the judge has also ruled that Britney needed to get permission from her father prior to making any financial decisions. 

  • Jennifer Korn

    Free Britney movement, continued

    "Britney’s situation is truly horrible and is a violation of human rights. There’s no reason why she should continue to be under a conservatorship. She doesn’t even have control of her own finances or children," a fan wrote on Twitter last year.

    Fans even went as far as to start a petition, which demanded to allow Britney to choose her own lawyer in her conservatorship case, which she won in October 2021.

    "Since 2008 Britney Spears has been held in a conservatorship, this gives her conservator, Jamie Spears, full control over her life, body and finances/estate," the petition writes.

    "Conservatorships are typically used for SEVERELY mentally ill individuals or people in comas. Having been on 4 world tours with dangerous flying and fire stunts, it’s safe to say she is sane enough to feed and clothe herself."

    "With this conservatorship she is unable to properly fight for her freedom as she isn’t legally allowed to hire her own lawyer. We need this petition so that Britney can hire her own lawyer and live a normal life as a 38 year old woman with two kids."

  • Jennifer Korn

    What was the Free Britney movement?

    Fans of Britney Spears say the 39-year-old superstar was being manipulated and controlled under the grounds of her conservatorship.

    In 2021, under the hashtag #freebritney, they began to call for the end of her conservatorship.

    The calls only got louder after Britney herself said she wanted the legal arrangement to be terminated.

    Britney had no legal control over her estate or her assets – those rights were granted to her father and a lawyer over a decade ago.

    She is said to be worth $59million.

    The singer's conservatorship was terminated in October 2021.

    Britney's father Jamie's net worth

    Even now, Britney remains one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, which means that she's also one of the wealthiest.

    Recent estimates suggest that the pop star's net worth is in the neighbourhood of $60million (£48million).

    There aren't any publicly available estimates about Jamie's net worth, but based on his daughter's income, there are ways to speculate how much money he has made.

    In 2016, it was reported that Jamie was taking home an annual salary of roughly $130,000 (£104,000) for his role of taking care of his daughter's finances and overseeing her mental health.

    On top of that, it was also reported that he made 1.5 percent from performances and merchandise related to Britney's Las Vegas residency.

    He married Britney's mother Lynne in 1975.

    As well as Britney, the couple have two other children, Bryan James, born in 1977, and Jamie Lynn, born in 1991.

    When Britney lost custody

    With the creation of her conservatorship, she was then given 50/50 custody with Federline.

    However, this changed in September 2019 when he was granted 70 percent, with Spears getting just 30.

    When Britney lost custody

    The star lost custody of the two boys in 2007 after a breakdown which saw the distressed star shave her own head before attacking a photographer's car with an umbrella.

    A judge granted full custody to Federline, much to Spears' distress.

    In 2008, Spears was then arrested after locking herself in a bathroom with Jayden, who was one year old at the time.

    The drama ended with her being stretchered away from her home in an ambulance after a four-hour standoff.

    After this, Spears was granted two visits and one overnight stay per week.

    How many kids does Britney have?

    Britney has two children, Sean, 16 and Jayden, 15.

    Their father is Kevin Federline, one of Spears’ former backup dancers.

    The former couple met in 2004 and after three months of dating, the pair announced their engagement in July 2004 and got married in September in Studio City, California.

    The following year, Spears’ first son Sean was born and 363 days later, she gave birth to Jayden.

    Fan reactions, continued

    Another fan wrote: "Yes Britney!! You speak your truth and let them have it. Enough is enough. She is jealous because all her life she had to hear about you and she need the attention now…"

    Britney's heated response comes just a few days after Jamie Lynn's interview on ABC.

    While speaking to JuJu Chang, Jamie Lynn alleged Britney once grabbed a knife and locked them both in a room.

  • Brittney Donovan

    Fans react on social media

    Plenty of fans were quick to react, as one person in the comments section wrote: "Beginning to think her sister is doing this to earn money and shame her because she’s not earning money off her anymore."

    Another chimed in and backed up Britney: "None of us believe the lies in this book and we support you 100%. I am so sorry you have to be dealing with this. It is not fair at all."

  • Brittney Donovan

    What else did Jamie Lynn say?

    The 30-year-old claimed there were even more incidences of altercations throughout her and Britney's childhoods.

    While reflecting on the alleged incident, Jamie Lynn said: "I was scared. That was a moment I had.

    "I also was fearful to really say anything because I didn't want to upset anybody, but I also was so upset that she didn't feel safe."

    In her new memoir, Things I Should've Said, the actress also claimed that Britney's behavior over the years has been "erratic, paranoid and spiraling."
