Following Jamie Lynn Spears’ announcement of her new memoir, Britney Spears seemingly threw a dig at her younger sister — details
Sending a message? After Jamie Lynn Spears announced her upcoming book, some fans have questioned whether Britney Spears was subtly calling out her sister’s new project.
Jamie Lynn, 30, took to Instagram on Monday, October 11, to reflect on her memoir, writing, “I can’t believe I finally finished writing my book!!! ‘THINGS I SHOULD HAVE SAID’ has been in the works for quite a longggg time now.”
The Zoey 101 alum recalled how she felt “a strong conviction” to share her story after her daughter Maddie, 13, was involved in an ATV accident in 2017.
“But there was a lot of personal work and healing that had to happen before I could share my truth the proper way,” she detailed in the social media post. “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.”
Jamie Lynn noted that she wants to prove that “you should never edit yourself or your truth to please anyone else” as she gets closure on the last 30 years of her life.
“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 …” the Sweet Magnolias star continued. “Last 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.”
Fans online were quick to point out that Jamie Lynn didn’t make any mention of Britney, 39, even though the synopsis for her book includes a section about their relationship.
“You’ve read the headlines, but you don’t know Jamie Lynn Spears. The world first met Jamie Lynn as a child star, when it was her job to perform, both on set and for the press. She spent years escaping into different characters — on All That, Zoey 101, and even in the role as Britney’s kid sister,” according to her… Brinkwire short summary.
