Jamie Lynn Spears claimed in a rare TV interview on Wednesday that she tried to help end the controversial tutelage of her sister Britney Spears.
“I’ve always been my sister’s biggest supporter, so when she needed help I put some means in place to do it,” Jamie Lynn, 30, said on “Good Morning America” Wednesday.
“I went out of my way to make sure she had the contacts she needed to eventually go ahead and end this trusteeship and just end it all for our family,” he said. she continued. “If this is to cause so much discord, why continue?” “
The “Zoey 101” alum did not disclose what “contacts” she gave to Britney, 40, or if the pop star had contacted them before.
Jamie Lynn did share, however, that she had a conversation with Samuel D. Ingham III, who a Los Angeles judge appointed as Britney’s lawyer when she was hospitalized in involuntary psychiatric detention in February 2008 at the start of guardianship.
Ingham resigned in July 2021 after Britney asked to hire a lawyer of her choice, Mathew Rosengart, who has represented her ever since.
“If she wanted to talk to other people then I did [help]. I organized this, ”Jamie Lynn told ABC News’s Juju Chang when promoting his upcoming memoir. “I even spoke to his previous legal team, and it didn’t end well in my favor.”
When asked whether or not she was okay with the tutelage, which controlled everything from how Britney spent her money to the color of her kitchen cabinets, Jamie Lynn replied, “It wasn’t. not to agree with the guardianship. Everyone has a voice, and it must be heard.
Britney said in court in June 2021 that her family “had done nothing” to help her when her father, Jamie Spears, allegedly placed her in a mental health facility against her will in early 2019.
The “Toxic” singer also told the judge presiding over her case that her family “should be in jail” for benefiting from her “abusive” guardianship, which the New York Times said generated at least $ 6 million for Jamie during his tenure. legal guardian of the eldest daughter.
Jamie, 69, was finally suspended from his post in September and the trusteeship was completely removed in November.
A newly released Britney ditched Jamie Lynn on Instagram earlier this month after repeatedly swapping beards on the social media platform.
However, the “Sweet Magnolias” star tearfully insisted on “GMA” that “the love is always there” between her and Britney, adding, “I never loved and supported her.”
