Star Report

Jamie Lynn Spears attends the 64th Annual BMI Country awards on November 1, 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Jamie Lynn Spears has broken her silence, following her husband's vocal support of the Spears family and Britney simultaneously.

30-year-old Jamie Lynn posted to her Instagram stories today (June 28) saying, “Hey everybody I just wanted to take a second to address a few things: the only reason I haven’t before is because I felt like until my sister is able to speak for herself to say what she felt like she needed to say publicly, that wasn’t my place — that wasn’t the right thing to do.”

“But now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel I need to say,” the former Zoey 101 star said. “I think like it’s extremely clear since the day that I was born I’ve only loved, adored and supported my sister. This is my freaking big sister, before any of this bulls—. I don’t care if she wants to run away to a rain forest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere or if she needs 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.”

“This situation does not affect me either way because I am her sister who’s only concerned with her happiness. I made a very conscious choice to only participate in her life as her sister, as an aunt to those boys,” she said wiping away tears. “Maybe I didn’t support her the way the public would like me to, with the hashtag on a public platform, but I can assure you that I’ve supported my sister long before there was a hashtag and I’ll support her long after. Note that.”

“I am not my family, I am my own person. I am speaking for myself. I’m so proud of her for using her voice. I’m SO proud of her for requesting new council, like I told her to do many years ago,” she noted not by using a “big public platform,” rather with a “personal conversation between two sisters.”
