Britney Spears has taken aim at her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, following her recent interview in which she spoke about their relationship and defended her role in the pop star’s 13-year conservatorship.
In a series of Notes App screenshots posted to Twitter on Thursday, Britney, 40, wrote about how she watched the interview, parts of which aired on both Good Morning America and Nightline, while having a fever of 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius).
“It was actually kind of nice having a fever so high cause I had to surrender to not caring,” she wrote.
Britney then explained why she took issue with some of what her younger sister said in the interview, which was to promote her new memoir, Things I Should Have Said. This included Jamie Lynn describing her behaviour as “erratic” and defending her tribute performance at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards, during which she sang remixes of Britney’s songs.
“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 ???” Britney Spears wrote.
“Then where the lady mentioned why did she accuse you of doing remixes to her songs … I know it may sound like a silly thing to most people but I wrote a lot of my songs and my sister was the baby. She never had to work for anything. Everything was always given to her !!!
“I do remember asking my sister why she did that when she knew I was waiting to change my show and her only words were, ‘Well, it wasn’t my idea …'”
“Hope your book does well, Jamie Lynn !!!!” she added, going on to write more about her family as a whole. “My family ruined my dreams 100 billion percent and try to make me look like the crazy one while I have a 104 fever, not being able to move in my bed !!!! My family loves to pull me down and hurt me always so I am disgusted with them !!!!”
During the interview, which was conducted by ABC News’ Juju Chang, Jamie Lynn said that she had always supported her older sister and tried to help her get out of the conservatorship.
“I’ve always been my sister’s biggest supporter,” she said. “So when she needed help, I set up ways to do so, went out of my way to make sure that she had the contacts she needed to possibly go ahead and end this conservatorship and just end this all for our family. If it’s going to cause this much discord, why continue it?”
