Jamie Lynn Spears, 30, wants to make peace with her sister Britney Spears, 40. The Zoey 101 alum responded to the “Toxic” singer’s latest letter — where Brit said she loves her sister “unconditionally” and knows Jamie Lynn’s “real heart” — despite being hurt over allegations in JL’s new book and GMA interview. “Britney — just call me,” Jamie Lynn began her Instagram story letter on Saturday, January 15.
“I have attempted many times to speak to you directly and handle this privately like sisters should, but you still choose to do everything on a public platform,” the youngest Spears sibling added, referencing Brit’s numerous posts calling out Jamie Lynn by name or seemingly through cryptic posts. In the next portion of the note, Jamie Lynn insisted she has “been” there for her sister and defended some of the claims she made in both her book and sit-down chat.
“In the meantime, please stop continuing the narrative that I haven’t been there for you or that I’m making things up,” Jamie Lynn begged. “I’m happy to share how many times I’ve reached out to you, supported you and tried to help you. This is embarrassing and has to stop. Love you,” she signed off.
In her book Things I Should Have Said, Jamie Lynn discussed Britney’s 13 year long conservatorship, which went into place when Jamie Lynn was only 17 and pregnant with daughter Maddie, now 13. The conservatorship also came up during her emotional interview with Juju Chang, where Jame Lynn said she “didn’t know” why she and Britney were in their current situation. The now 30-year-old recalled Britney’s behavior as “erratic, paranoid and spiraling” around the time of the conservatorship coming into place.

Jamie Lynn also alleged that at one point a “scared” Britney took Jamie Lynn into a bathroom with a knife. Despite beliefs by fans and accusations seemingly made by Brit, Jamie Lynn also insisted she made “no effort” to become a part of the legal arrangement. “I love my sister,” she said through tears.
The love appears to be mutual: after an initial message calling Jamie Lynn a “scum person” who had “stooped to a new low,” Britney returned to Twitter with an open letter for her little sister. “All I know is I love you unconditionally !!! So go ahead and say whatever you want … it’s so tacky for a family to fight publicly like this !!!” the Crossroads actress wrote. “You say you love me … yet your loyalty is still with the people that hurt me most….I know your real heart.”
