Britney Spears may be free from her conservatorship, but that doesn’t mean the drama is over. As of late, the former pop princess’ younger sister, Jamie Lynn, has been making headlines for her explosive new memoir, “Things I Should Have Said,” in which she calls Britney’s behavior “paranoid” and “erratic” growing up.
Despite claims to the contrary coming from Britney, in a recent interview while promoting the tell-all book on “Good Morning America,” Jamie Lynn said, “I’ve always been my sister’s biggest supporter.” The 30-year-old mom-of-two, who is 10 years younger than Britney, also insists she had nothing to do with her sister’s 13-year conservatorship, which was terminated late last year.
Furthermore, while Jamie Lynn denies profiting off of Britney’s stardom in any way, the “Toxic” hitmaker declared in her June 2021 court hearing that her whole family makes money off of her. In July, Jamie Lynn addressed speculation that she was on her sister’s payroll with a post on social media. The actress shared a screenshot of a headline that read: “Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn shares photos of her home life…after it’s revealed she is the ONLY family member not on the singer’s payroll.” Alongside the screenshot, she wrote: “Facts…now leave my broke ass alone.” It was reported that Britney is the actual owner of Jamie Lynn’s $1 million condo in Destin, Fla.

Forbes claims that the “…Baby One More Time” singer is worth $60 million after selling concert tickets and albums for decades. In 2002, the publication named her the world’s most powerful celebrity, with an estimated $40 million at the time.
