Britney Spears is one of the most iconic pop stars in Hollywood and is widely loved. She has given so many chartbusters and is no doubt a sensation even today.
However, the star’s struggle with her conservatorship and the long legal battle gained her even more empathy and support from her loyal fans and feminists around the world. She finally had support after suffering for years because of her own family.
Britney’s relationship with her family has always been strained and toxic. Her baby sister Jamie Lynn Spears is no exception. There have often been statements about how Jamie never stood up for her sister.
Well, having no support within your family wrecks you. We can only imagine what it must be like to be a superstar and yet be in control of your toxic family. let us dive deeper into Britney’s dark days and her sister’s lack of support as claimed by Britney.
Britney and Her Toxic Conservatorship
To those who are unknown of the concept of conservatorship, its a legal structure in which a person’s personal, economic, and legal decision-making power is ceded to others. Called guardianship in most states, the arrangement is intended for people who cannot take care of themselves.
As per what we know, Britney had toxic parents who were in a toxic marriage. They saw talent in their second child and decided to make her big. They took her to auditions and competitions and soon enough, Britney was on a path to success.
Having worked since 16, and constantly being under the harsh and relentless scrutiny of the media, Britney’s mental health started taking a toll. She had two sons and was battling postpartum depression.
Her mental health was going downhill and she was checked into a mental institution. (According to many, she was forced to do so).
Given Britney’s mega-star status and star-studded lifestyle, her family thought to take over control of her life given her state. Hence, the conservatorship which initially was meant for a few days was imposed.
However, what was meant for days, turned into weeks, to months, to become something permanent.
Since the establishment of Spears’s conservatorship, she had released four albums, headlined a global tour that grossed hundred and thirty-one million dollars, and performed for four years in a hit Las Vegas residency.
Yet her conservators, who included her father, Jamie Spears, had controlled her spending, communications, and personal decisions.
She speaks about how she was refused to present new songs, remixes, or even the privilege of having a baby! That is surely brutal and no wonder it worsened her mental health.
She finally gathered courage and raised her voice against the toxic arrangement that destroyed her self-esteem. The pop star has often stated that she “feel like I was dead,” and also “like I didn’t matter.”
Spears, while stating her side in court broke down while saying, “All I want is to own my money, for this to end, and for my boyfriend to drive me in his fucking car.”
Even though this is even horrible to read about, it was even more painful for Britney as she had no one to speak for her. Even her mother and her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, never really stood up for her. That has surely tainted the bond between both sisters.
The Feud Between The Spears Sisters
While Britney had to suffer due to her toxic conservatorship, her mother and sister never took a stand for her. This has made her salty about it. The wound on her heart was still not very healed.
There has been no direct proof of Jamie Lynn Spears being involved in Britney’s conservatorship, however, she was a trustee of Britney’s SJB Revocable Trust. The trust was established in 2004 to protect Britney’s financial assets for her children. It made Jamie Lynn responsible for distributing funds from the trust to Britney’s sons in the event of the singer’s death.
Despite never directly speaking against Britney to the media, there have been several instances where Jamie has declined to have taken part in #freebritney rallies. She has also never actively spoken up about her sister’s sufferings.
Jamie Lynn has also been accused of utilizing Britney’s properties for her own vacations. She was also accused of creating false stories about Britney and spreading them.
Britney and Jamie constantly engage in online wars, where both the sisters keep shading and calling out each other. Looks like it is pretty exhausting for Birtney to see Jamie playing all aloof to her sufferings.
Jamie is the youngest child and was given a childhood with comfort, love, and leisure time to enjoy and relax. However, Britney has always been under the pressure of performing and working and creating a name.
This all has severely traumatized the pop star.
Britney Being Salty About Her Mother And Sister
Britney led a long battle to free herself of her conservatorship. She finally won the battle on November 12, 2021, when the singer was finally free to make her own choices.
She was finally free of the toxic clutches of her family.
She has time and again stated how her family destroyed her and she wishes to sue them all for it, without stating their actual names. Britney has time and again mentioned and hinted at her family’s toxic dynamic.
When her mother and sister posted about celebrating Britney’s freedom and victory, she took to Instagram and posted, “the people closest to you who never showed up for you.”
She has constantly posted and called out her sister about abandoning her and never caring about her issues. She has often claimed about how her sister only acts as if she cares online while she was never actually there for her.
As time went by, the feud has only gotten nastier and the sisters are in a worse spot than ever. There was even an instance where Brtiney stated about Jamie:
“I wish you would take a lie detector test so all these masses of people see you’re lying through your teeth about me,” Britney wrote. “I wish the almighty, Lord would come down and show this whole world that you’re lying and making money off of me !!!!”
She concluded: “You are scum, Jamie Lynn.”
Britney Spears’ fame and her traumatic experiences has destroyed the pop star’s life. She wished to be normal, but chaos and pain is all she ever got. Amidst this, her sister never taking a stand for her has left her heart sour.
She also hates how Jamie acts all caring for the Instgram while in reality she never really cared.
Looks like the sisters’ relationship has only worsened with time and there is no road visible to the path of rebuilding it. Whatever might be in the future for the sibling duo, we wish Britney never has to deal with any type of pain ever again.
