A little over two months since Britney Spears' conservatorship ended, her sister Jamie Lynn Spears discusses her alleged role in the matter.
The Zoey 101 star recently sat down with Good Morning America. In addition to discussing her family's "complicated dynamics," Jamie Lynn also shared how she felt about the termination of the pop star's conservatorship last November.
"I was happy," she told host Juju Chang during the interview, which aired on Jan. 12. "First off, I don't understand–when it 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, 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."
In November of 2021, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny announced the termination of Britney's conservatorship after 13 years.
Days after following the news, Britney took to Instagram to celebrate her newly found freedom, writing:
"I'm so happy my lawyer Mathew Rosengart came into my life when he did…he has truly turned my life around…I'm forever thankful for that!!!! What a sight, seeing so many people celebrating my victory….I love my fans so much…so thank you!!!!"
In her upcoming memoir, Jamie Lynn recalled a request she claimed her sister made to her amid the conservatorship but denied playing an active role in the process, which she also recalled to Good Morning America.
"There was a time where my sister asked me, of her trust and will, if I would be the person who assured that her boys got what they needed," Jamie Lynn told Juju of her sister's two sons with ex Kevin Federline. "Whether she's in a conservatorship or not, that was a very normal thing, I thought. Once I realized that, you know what, she's in a conservatorship, I felt like I just didn't want to be a part [of] it until maybe she was out of a conservatorship. So, there was no like, me overseeing funds, or something like that. And if that was, it was a misunderstanding, but either way, I took no steps to be a part of that."
Most recently, fans have noted the ongoing rift between the sisters seems to be continuing, with Britney unfollowing Jamie Lynn on Instagram in January.
