Jamie Lynn Spears On #FreeBritney Movement
The #FreeBritney movement has gained all-new traction now that Britney was able to finally speak freely to the Los Angeles courts about her conservatorship.
Her younger sister Jamie Lynn had stayed silent throughout all of the turmoil until now. On her Instagram stories, Jamie Lynn spoke candidly and said:
"I just want to take a second to address a few things. The only reason I hadn't before is because I felt like until my sister was able to speak for herself and say what she felt she needed to say publicly that it wasn't my place and it wasn't the right thing to do. But now that she's very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel I need to say."
"Since the day I was born, I've only loved adored and supported my sister. I mean this is my freaking big sister, before any of this bulls***. I don't care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has done so many times before, because I have nothing to gain or lose either way. This situation does not affect me either way, because I'm only her sister who's only concerned about her happiness."
Jamie Lynn has received criticism for not speaking publicly about the situation so she felt the need to defend her decision. Both Britney and Jamie's fans are expressing their appreciation and respect for this.
The Zoey 101 star explained: "I paid my freakin bills since I was 10 years old. Not that I owe the public anything, because my sister knows I love and support her. I'm not my family. I'm my own person. And I'm speaking for myself. Maybe I didn't support the way the public would like me to with a hashtag on a public platform but I can assure you that I support my sister long before there was a hashtag and I'll support her long after."
Speaking of Britney finally getting new lawyers not controlled by the conservatorship or chose by her father, Jamie said: "I'm so proud of her for using her voice. I'm so proud of her for requesting new counsel like I told her many years ago - oh, not in a public platform but just in a personal conversation between two sisters."
"If ending the conservatorship and flying to Mars or whatever the hell else she wants to do to be happy, I support that 100% because I support my sister; I love my sister. Always have, always will. As long as she's happy. So let's keep praying. That's all."
We will have to wait and see if the courts will be taking what Britney herself said about her strict and terrifying conservatorship that she said are even preventing her from marrying and having children and forcing her to work against her will.
