If you haven’t been following this story about the Spears’ family drama through Britney’s now-infamous conservatorship, here’s the bit of info that essentially explains why a non-profit would refuse to take Jamie Lynn’s money. Long story short, there’s been some beef between the sisters through this whole ordeal. Although Jamie Lynn has publically expressed her support for Britney, the older sister seems to think that she was on her dad’s side this whole time. That’s why Britney’s legion of fans has it out for Jamie Lynn Spears!
Jamie Lynn Spears recently announced that she would like to donate proceedings from her upcoming book to “My Brave.” A non-profit organization focused on mental health. Jamie’s book “Things I Should Have Said” is planned to launch on January 22.
My Brave shared a post on Instagram as it was World Mental Health Day, but the comment section got filled out with comments from supporters of Britney, lashing out at Jamie and boycotting her donation offer, referring to Britney Spears’ conservatorship battle.

The organization put up another post after that, announcing that they would “decline the offer” of receiving proceeds from Jamie Lynn’s book sales.

Jamie had positive expectations from “My Brave,” showing her support for the organization; she mentioned, “They are doing amazing work to support and encourage people as they bravely share their experiences,” she wrote. “Lastly but certainly not least, I want you all to know, YOU matter, YOUR story matters, YOU are enough, and don’t ever let this world try to convince you otherwise.”
But My Brave’s response came as a totally unexpected shock. My Brave issued a statement, “We hear you. This Is My Brave was recently recommended to be a beneficiary organization for the proceeds from Jamie Lynn Spears’ upcoming book. We have made the decision to decline the offer of receiving proceeds from the book sales. We heard you. We’re taking action. We are deeply sorry to anyone we offended.”
Britney has publicly criticized and spoken against Jamie, in fact, her entire family for the 13-year old conservatorship case. Britney is now hinting that she could sue her family for “conservatorship abuse”. With Jamie Lynn being included in the lawsuit. The sisters even sparred over the name of Jamie Lynn’s new book. She wanted to call it “I Must Confess”, but Britney wasn’t on board because she thought that was a rip-off of lyrics to her song, “Baby One More Time”.
As per the Insider, “Jamie Lynn has suffered abuses in her life as well and that’s what people aren’t understanding — she has her own things she’s gone through. She can’t help that she’s Britney’s little sister. Her life is only spoken about in relation to her family even though she has also been dealing with mental health issues for the better half of her life. This just reinforces the entire trauma — that her story doesn’t matter.”
After Jamie Lynn revealed the book cover — and proposed charitable donation — Britney, 39, mocked her sister’s project. She wrote on Instagram that she’s considering releasing a book next year, “But I’m having issues coming up with a title so maybe my fans could help!!!! Option #1 … ‘S—t, I really don’t know’ Option #2 … ‘I really care what people think.”
Britney also openly spoke out about her sentiments for her feeling; during her bombshell testimony decrying the conditions of her conservatorship, Britney Spears did not specifically name her sister Jamie Lynn Spears as one of the individuals who took advantage of her but did express a desire to sue her family as a whole. Previously stated, “I would honestly like to sue my family, to be totally honest with you. I also would like to be able to share my story with the world, and what they did to me, instead of it being a hush-hush secret to benefit all of them.”
Jamie claims to open up about her own personal battles, stating, “My truth the proper way. I’ve spent my whole life believing that I had to pretend to be perfect, even when I wasn’t, so for the first time I am opening up about my own mental health, because this process challenged me to have to be painfully honest with myself, and face a lot of hard things, that I normally would have just glossed right over, like I was taught to,” she wrote on Instagram earlier this month.
Jamie also expressed her concerns about opening up and letting others know about her personal life; she said, “I know how scary it can be to share personal struggles, especially if you don’t feel you have the support or a safe space to do so.”
“I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes !!!!! My so-called support system hurt me deeply !!!! This conservatorship killed my dreams,” Britney Spears wrote in the caption of an Instagram post that read, “Take me as I am or kiss my ass eat shit and step on Legos.”
