In light of the “Free Britney” movement, and the exciting, long-awaited release of the vibrant star from her 13-year conservatorship back in November 2021, Britney Spears is taking back her voice and speaking out against the family that held her prisoner for years.
Britney’s latest post on Twitter comes in response to sister, Jamie Lynn Spears’s GMA interview announcing her tell-all memoir, “Things I Should’ve Said.” There have been a couple of back and forth tweets between the sisters leading up to the most recent response from Britney, where Britney sheds light upon the upsetting truth and pain that she has endured.
In the tweet posted, January 15, 2022, Britney admitted she had said some harsh things to Jamie Lynn. However, she expressed to Jamie, “…you obviously hurt me by the things you are making up about me.” Britney continues to go on and acknowledge that her sister has worked hard for her own life and done some amazing things; however, “the family has never been remotely as hard on [Jamie] as they have been on [Britney].”
Giving more validity to the excruciatingly terrible mistreatment of Britney, she expressed, “What Dad did to me, they don’t even do that to criminals … so for you to sit back and act completely aloof to what has happened to me is honestly insane to me.”
Britney delves deeper as she mentions she has worked grueling hours and put so much work into her career, only to be put away for 13 years and 4 months for no reason at all, as her family “treat[ed] [Britney] like [she was] nothing.” She directed her heartache toward Jamie as she expressed “[Jamie’s] loyalty is still with the people that hurt [Britney] most.”
The most heart-breaking part, and what Britney reveals to “make [her] the saddest” is that despite relentlessly trying to reach out to her sister, Jamie “did absolutely nothing” until Britney posted on Instagram, signaling she needed help. Britney reinforced that her family “should have been [there] way before” and “that makes [Britney] very sad.”
Will her family ever stop trying to ride the coat-tails of Britney’s success?
Despite all the pain and abuse that Britney has endured, she emerges as a bright light and perseveres as a strong, individual and an extremely influential force in the world. We look forward to seeing this new chapter for Britney as she radiates, thrives and enjoys the freedom she has always deserved!
