Britney Spears hits out at sister Jamie Lynn: ‘My so-called support system hurt me deeply’
Britney Spears has hit out at her sister Jamie Lynn Spears and her father in a furious Instagram post that explains why she won’t be touring anytime soon.
“For those of you who choose to criticise my dancing videos… look I’m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do or think,” Britney Spears wrote.
“I’ve done that for the past 13 years… I’d much rather share videos YES from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas where some people were so far gone they couldn’t even shake my hand and I ended up getting a contact high from weed all the time.”
She said she refuses to “put on heavy make up and try try try on stage” while she’s not allowed to be “the real deal”.
Britney Spears suggested that she has wanted to perform remixes of her songs as well as new music on tour for years, but claimed her conservatorship has not allowed her to do so.
She continued: “I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes!
“My so-called support system hurt me deeply! This conservatorship killed my dreams… so all I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill… yet people still try!”

Spears went on to reflect on the recent documentary Framing Britney Spears, which looked back at the star’s mistreatment at the hands of the media in the years leading up to her breakdown.
“I didn’t like the way the documentaries bring up humiliating moments from the past… I’m way past all that and have been for a long time!” she wrote.
Britney Spears tells fans: ‘You’re lucky I post anything at all’
Britney Spears also used the post to hit out at women who think it’s “weird” she still has “hope for fairytales”.
“Go f**k yourself,” Spears wrote. “As I said… hope is all I have right now… you’re lucky I post anything at all… if you don’t like what you see, unfollow me!
“People try to kill hope because hope is one of the most vulnerable and fragile things there is! I’m gonna go read a mother f**king fairy tale now!”
Spears closed her post: “Psss if you don’t want to see my precious ass dancing in my living room or it’s not up to your standards… go read a f**king book.”
The singer’s latest post comes just hours after she slammed her loved ones for “ignoring” her when she needed them the most.
Britney Spears shared an image on Instagram on Friday night (16 July) that read: “Never forget who ignored you when you needed them and who helped you before you even had to ask.”
She captioned the post: “There’s nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support.
“There’s nothing worse than that!!! How dare the people you love the most say anything at all… did they even put a hand out to even lift me up at the TIME?” Spears wrote.
Many fans speculated that Spears’ comments were about her sister Jamie Lynn.
Jamie Lynn has generally remained quiet on her sister’s conservatorship over the years, but she finally broke her silence in June after Britney said the legal arrangement was “abusive” in a court appearance.
Speaking on Instagram after Britney’s court appearance, Jamie Lynn said she hadn’t spoken out about the conservatorship before because she felt that it wasn’t her place to do so until her sister was able to “speak for herself”.
Jamie Lynn later said she had been receiving death threats from furious Britney fans over the singer’s comments about the conservatorship.
Meanwhile, Britney was granted permission on Wednesday (14 July) to hire her own legal counsel for the first time since 2008.
Hollywood attorney Mathew Rosengart will represent her going forward in her battle to be freed from her conservatorship.
