Jamie Lynn Spears claims to have received an apology from her estranged sister, Britney Spears and includes the text message in her new memoir.
“In a recent text from my sister, she stated herself, ‘I know it’s not your fault and I’m sorry for being so angry at you. Although I’m your big sister, I need you more than you need me and always have,‘” the former “Zoey 101” star writes in “Things I Should Have Said.”
Britney, 40, felt Jamie Lynn, 30, was not there for her during her conservatorship battle, and the sisters have been at odds for years.
While it is unclear when Britney sent the alleged mea culpa, the actress included it in the chapter of her book that details the shocking June 2021 court hearing in which Britney stated that her family “should be in jail” for benefiting from her nearly 14-year conservatorship, which was terminated in November.
“I pray for the day she shares these words with the world. I have no control over anything the media reports and cannot be held responsible for something I have absolutely no control over,” Jamie Lynn writes of Britney’s alleged apology.
While the siblings may have patched things up at some point, the release of “Things I Should Have Said” has reopened old wounds.
A source claimed last week that Britney Spears was “rolling her eyes” over her sister, Jamie Lynn talking about their issues during TV interviews promoting her new book.
While another source disagrees … saying that the pop superstar was “not surprised by this reaction because this is the reaction she has received from her family her entire life.”
Britney, who unfollowed Jamie Lynn on Instagram earlier this month, attempted to put an end to their feud on Saturday by tweeting, “Come on!!! We’re supposed to look out for each other…
“But what you’re saying completely perplexes me!!! All I know is that I adore you without condition!!! So feel free to say whatever you want… It’s so tacky for a family to fight in public like this!!!”
