In an emotional interview with “Good Morning America” on Wednesday, Jamie Lynn Spears addressed her feud with sister Britney Spears.
“I love my sister,” the 30-year-old says through tears in a promo video for the rare sit-down, which was released on Tuesday.
“But things have gotten complicated,” ABC News journalist Juju Chang adds. Jamie Lynn, dressed in a cream suit, responds, “I guess so.”

Juju Chang will also inquire as to what “caused” the schism between the two sisters, as well as what the author of “Things I Should Have Said” regrets not saying.
Jamie Lynn is speaking out now because her tell-all memoir will be released on January 18. However, the book’s release coincides with the former Nickelodeon star’s and Britney’s parents, Jamie and Lynn Spears, facing backlash for their alleged abusive behavior toward Britney, 40.
The pop icon, who was recently released from a conservatorship that had controlled all aspects of her life for 13 years, stated in a June hearing that she intended to sue her family.
Britney Spears told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny at the time … “I really couldn’t even take up for myself. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad… I was scared. I’m not here to be anyone’s slave.”
Jamie Lynn Spears, in particular, was slammed for not publicly advocating for her sister while she was under legal restraints or for participating in the #FreeBritney movement.
However, immediately following the shocking court hearing, the mother of two defended herself in an angry Instagram post.
Jamie Lynn first said in a frustrated tone, “I think it’s extremely clear since the day I was born that I’ve only loved, adored, and supported my sister. I mean, this is my freaking big sister, before any of this bulls–t.
“I don’t care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has so many times before because I have nothing to gain or lose either way.”
Once Britney regained full control of her social media, the “Toxic” singer revealed her true feelings toward her younger sister to her fans. Britney slammed Jamie Lynn in July for remixing one of her songs without her permission at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards, calling her a “mean ass.”

She also slammed the aspiring author later for the title of her book, which was originally titled “I Must Confess” after Britney’s 1998 debut single, “…Baby One More Time.” Britney said in October that if she ever did an interview, the “Lord have mercy” on her family’s souls.
