Jamie Lynn Spears calls for end to death threats amid Britney backlash
Although they have recently expressed their support for her sister Britney Spears, Jamie Lynn Spears and her children appear to be receiving death threats – and she has had enough. The mom of Maddie, 13, and Ivey, 3, posted a story on Instagram on Friday, July 2, noting that while she respects the fact that “everyone has the right to speak up,” trolls must “please stop with death threats, especially death threats against children.” the Zoey 101 alum also recently turned off her Instagram comments to quell the online hatred she receives.
Days earlier, Jamie Lynn, who faced backlash for not talking more about Britney’s guardianship over the years, addressed her sister moving testimony in court on June 23 via Instagram. “Since the day I was born, I have loved, adored and supported only my sister. I mean, she’s my fucking big sister, before all this bullshit, ”Jamie Lynn said in a series of story videos on Instagram on June 28, explaining that she had waited to speak publicly until then. let everyone hear directly from Britney. “I don’t care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have millions of babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and take over the world like she has done so many times before, because I have nothing to gain or lose anyway.
Speaking in open court via video chat for the first time on June 23, Britney had passionately pleaded for Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny to end the “abusive” 13-year-old guardianship who granted his father, Jamie Spears, and his co-curators control his career, finances and personal life. Among the claims Britney made in her 20-minute speech, she was forced to have an IUD, prevented from getting married or having a child, and forced to take medication against her will. “This tutelage does me a lot more harm than good,” she said. “I deserve to have a life.” (A judge dismissed Britney’s months-old request to dismiss her father as curator on June 30 and, days later, granted Bessemer Trust Company’s request to step down as co-custodian of the estate.)
Although Britney never named Jamie Lynn in her testimony, the singer mentioned that her family had “done nothing” to help her, which led some #FreeBritney supporters to view the younger brother Spears as accomplice of the guardianship. Further fueling speculation, Britney told her followers in a June Instagram video that Frozen is his favorite Disney movie because she likes very much “the fact that the two sisters, their relation, and this one goes to a castle because she cannot take any more”.
Britney has not commented on the most recent attacks on Jamie Lynn and her nieces, although she posted a loving 30th birthday tribute to her sister in April. Calling Jamie Lynn a “beautiful soul,” Britney wrote on Instagram that she wished she was as smart as her little sister at 30. “It’s weird to say that I was basically your mom when you were younger and yes I’m even older but your soul is and always has been wise !!!!” Britney partially captioned the post, “I am truly and sincerely inspired by your path and the life you have created for your beautiful children and I am so proud to call someone so beautiful on the inside. that you my sister !!!! “
Now that Jamie Lynn has broken her silence, it remains to be seen if she will share more with fans, but the death threats must stop anyway.
