“I hate to burst my sister’s bubble, but my book is not about her. I can’t help that I was born a Spears too… I’ve built my career in spite of just being someone’s little sister.”

By now, you’ve likely seen that the feud between the Spears sisters has reached new heights.

The discord between Britney and Jamie Lynn — which has been playing out in the public eye since last June — was exacerbated this week, after the Zoey 101 star appeared on Good Morning America for a lengthy interview about the conflict.

If you missed it, Britney accused Jamie Lynn of doing “nothing” to help her throughout her conservatorship — which saw her life and finances controlled by her father and lawyers from 2008 until Nov. 2021 — during an explosive court hearing last year.

Jamie Lynn refuted Britney’s claim shortly after the testimony, and instead maintained that she’s always “loved” and “supported” her sister.

Ever since, the two have been caught up in a brutal ongoing Instagram feud — which only escalated on Wednesday, when Jamie Lynn publicly spoke out about the drama for the first time on GMA.

“I love my sister,” Jamie Lynn said. “I’ve only ever loved and supported her, and done what’s right by her. And she knows that. So I don’t know why we’re in this position right now.”

“When [the conservatorship] was put into place I was a 17-year-old. I was about to have a baby, so I didn’t understand what was happening,” she said. “Nor was I focused on that. I was focused on the fact that I was a 17-year-old about to have a baby. I understand just as little about it then as I do now.”

Despite claiming that she didn’t “understand” the conservatorship, Jamie Lynn went on to allege that she provided Britney with resources to help her while under its control — something that she said “did not end well” for her.

“There was no me overseeing funds or something like that, and if that was, it was a misunderstanding,” she claimed. “Either way, I took no steps to be a part of it.”

“I went out of my way to make sure that she had the contacts she needed to possibly go ahead and end this conservatorship, and just end this all for our family,” she said. “If it’s gonna cause this much discord, why continue it?”

“If she wanted to talk to other people … I set that up. I even spoke to her legal team … previous legal team, and that did not end well in my favor,” she added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Jamie Lynn defended the Spears family patriarch, Jamie Spears, who has been accused of abusing his former role as Britney’s conservator. Not only did the “Toxic” singer claim he “should be in jail” during her devastating testimony back in June, but Jamie was also suspended entirely from the conservatorship ahead of its termination.

“It’s messy, and I’m working through it,” Jamie Lynn said of her current relationship with her father. “I have good days and bad days.”

“I think the relationship stands as that he’s still my father, and I have to acknowledge that in a responsible way,” she explained.
