Britney Spears isn't putting much weight or thought into her sister's tell-all interview with ABC News. In fact, the pop star is said to be "rolling her eyes" at Jamie Lynn Spears.
Brit's sister and one-time confidant spoke to ABC's Juju Chang to promote her upcoming memoir, "Things I Should Have Said." During that chat this week, Jamie spoke about her fractured relationship with Britney and even said the "Toxic" singer was "erratic" and "paranoid" leading up to her since-terminated conservatorship.
"Britney has been deeply hurt by her family, and this isn't helping matters," a source told Page Six. "Sure, Jamie Lynn has a book to sell, but things don't have to be so one-sided."
It's no secret that Brit and her family don't see eye-to-eye, and most of it stems from the 14-year conservatorship she was under, which was helmed by her father, Jamie Spears.
"Other than her court testimonies last summer, Britney really hasn't had a chance to tell her story," the source said. "Everything had to be so hush-hush under the conservatorship; that's why no one ever heard her talk about it until recently. Now that she's free, Britney wanted to share everything that she's been through when she was ready, but Jamie Lynn beat her to the punch."
Ironically, Britney had previously bemoaned that her family could always give press interviews and speak about her, but she wasn't allowed to speak to the press under the conservatorship.
Whether Britney watched Jamie Lynn's newest interview isn't known, but the source said the bride-to-be is "aware of it." Brit backers also scoffed at claims made in the interview and in the book.
"In her book, Jamie Lynn describes Britney as 'erratic' and 'paranoid' at her lowest point, but when Juju asked her to comment on present-day Britney, Jamie Lynn said it wouldn't be 'fair' to 'speak to anyone else's state of mind,'" one friend told Page Six. "What sense does that make?"
Jamie Lynn also spoke of one particular instance in which she said Britney screamed at her in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Jamie Lynn curiously left out what caused the fight," the pal said, but failed to go into detail. "It was a disagreement that should have never gone beyond the walls of the family's home. Who didn't have tension at home in the beginning of quarantine? Why even bring that up now, two years later?"
