Britney Spears 'working to feel compassion' to sister Jamie Lynn
Britney Spears says she’s ‘working to feel more compassion than anger’ to sister Jamie Lynn as she claims Zoey 101 star told her to ‘stop fighting conservatorship’
Britney Spears says she is ‘working to feel more compassion’ towards sister Jamie Lynn after they feuded for years.
The pop icon, 41, who will release explosive memoir The Woman In Me on October 24 – also claims in her tell-all tome that Jamie-Lynn, 32, told her to ‘stop fighting’ her controversial conservatorship which ran from 2008-2021.
In excerpts obtained by People, Spears writes: ‘She will always be my sister, and I love her and her beautiful family. I’m working to feel more compassion than anger toward her, and everyone who I feel has wronged me. It’s not that easy.’
The star said her younger sister ‘ruled the roost’ at their home in Kentwood, Louisiana, leaving Britney feeling like a ‘ghost child’ to her parents Jamie and Lynne.
She writes: ‘I can remember walking into the room and feeling like no one even saw me. Jamie Lynn only saw the TV. My mother, who at one time had been the person I was closest to in the world, was on another planet… I’d listen to her spew these hateful words, and I’d turn to my mother and say, “Are you going to let this little witch talk to you like that?” I mean, she was bad.’

Released October 24: Spears’ memoir, The Woman In Me, has unleashed a series of bombshells
Spears, who has previously accused her sister of doing ‘nothing’ to help her during her conservatorship, also claims when she was placed in a mental health facility in 2018, she texted Jamie asking for her help.
She alleges Jamie responded: ‘Stop fighting it… There’s nothing you can do about it, so stop fighting it.’
Spears wrote: ‘This will sound crazy, but I’ll say it again because it’s the truth: I thought they were going to try to kill me. I didn’t understand how Jamie Lynn and our father had developed such a good relationship. She knew I was reaching out to her for help and that she was dogging me. I felt like she should have taken my side.’
DailyMail.com has contacted Jamie-Lynn’s representatives for comment.
The star also addresses her famous confrontation with Jamie’s Zoey 101 co-star Alexa Nikolas – acknowledging she has since learned Nikolas was ‘innocent’ and offering an apology.
In 2022, Nikolas revealed that the singer had yelled at her on the set of Zoey 101 after Jamie had accused her of bullying. Nikolas added that Britney had since ‘personally apologized’ for the incident
In another shocking excerpt, the pop superstar called Jamie Lynn a ‘total b**ch’ — even though she was describing her sister when she was just 11 years old.
Britney recalled being fed up with her sister’s allegedly terrible behavior when she returned home from her tour in 2002, a source shared with Us Weekly on Thursday.

The catty excerpt leaked just days after an excerpt leaked in which Britney claimed that she had an abortion after getting pregnant at just 19 because her then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake ‘wasn’t ready to be a father.’
In the newest nugget from her memoir, the songstress lambasted Jamie Lynn’s behavior at their family home due to her poor treatment of their mother, who was struggling in the wake of her split.
Jamie Lynn and the rest of the Spears family were not invited to her 2022 wedding to Sam Asghari.
In a July interview with Variety, Jamie Lynn said she has ‘absolute love’ for Britney but admitted that the backlash she received from the ‘Free Britney’ movement as well as her big sister’s scathing posts were ‘hard’ for her to deal with.
‘I have nothing but absolute love for every single one of my family members. If I learned anything from last year, being so open and feeling like I had to defend myself at times, I don’t feel like there’s anything else that I need to say,’ she told the outlet of her relationship with Britney.
‘I just have to leave it where it is because those conversations are meant to be personal. All I can focus on now is my girls, my husband and the work that I’m doing.’
Another major instigator of one of their fallout was Jamie Lynn’s tell-all memoir, in which she accused the singer of once seizing a knife and locking herself in a room with her because she ‘didn’t feel safe.’
At the time, Britney slammed her sibling for spreading ‘crazy lies’ about her in the book, and a public war of words raged between the pair.
Britney also revealed that she wasn’t happy when Jamie Lynn used her music in a performance at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. “I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes,” she wrote. “My so-called support system hurt me deeply!!!!”

She recently reconciled with Jamie Lynn, revealing in an Instagram post uploaded on June 21 that she had a ‘nice’ visit with her younger sibling on the set of the latter’s film Zoey 102.
This came as a shock to fans as Britney had been putting Jamie Lynn on blast as recently as January when she slammed her for saying ‘it was hard’ being her sibling.
Their mother Lynne Spears had reportedly been ‘begging’ Britney to meet with Jamie Lynn in the weeks leading up to their reunion.
