Britney was upset after an interview given by Jamie-Lynn to promote her upcoming memories, Things I should say in which she claimed her sister once locked them in a room with a knife because she “didn’t feel safe”.
Jamie-Lynn discussed her memories of growing up with an avid pop star and claimed to have witnessed examples of her “wrong” and “spiral” behavior.
When host Juju Chang asked Jamie-Lynn why she would share such a vulnerable moment with Britney in public, she replied, “It’s important to remember that I was a kid at the time. I was scared.
“It was an experience I had, but I was also scared that I wanted to say something because I didn’t want to upset anyone, but I was also so upset that she didn’t feel safe.”
Britney, 40, responded by accusing Jamie-Lynn of trying to sell her book “at my expense.”
“I know it may sound silly to most people, but I wrote a lot of my own songs and my sister was a baby,” Britney wrote on Twitter. “She never had to work for anything, everything was always given to her.”
In a statement posted on Instagram, 30-year-old Jamie-Lynn has now said that the things claimed about her are “absolutely not true”.
She said she was forced to explain to her eldest daughter why the family was receiving death threats “because of their aunt’s vague and accusatory posts”.
“We know I could tell the truth and end it all in one second if I wanted to,” Jamie-Lynn wrote.

“Unfortunately, after being silent all my life, I realized that this will not be the reality, and I may have to stand up on my own to protect myself and my family’s well-being.”
She added that her memories are “not about” Britney: “I can’t help but be born as Spears too and that some of my experiences include my sister.”
“There’s no page and I don’t want drama,” Jamie-Lynn concluded, “but I’m telling my truth to heal my traumas so I can close this chapter and move on, and I wish my sister would do the same.
“No matter what comes, I will always love my older sister and be here for her. It’s time to end the unhealthy chaos that has controlled my life for so long. “
