Britney Spears is on the verge of starting another legal battle very soon and that too with another family member – younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears.
Britney Spears is currently analyzing the potential legal actions that she can take against her sister over her new memoir release and its promotional tour which according to the pop diva’s lawyer are “misleading or outrageous claims’ regarding her.
Mathew Rosengart, the lawyer of Britney Spears, has already sent a cease and desist letter to Jamie Lynn Spears on Monday – merely a day before the memoirs of Jamie Lynn Spears “things I should have said” hit the bookshelves across the country.
“We write with some hesitation because the last thing Britney wants is to bring more attention to your ill-timed book and its misleading or outrageous claims about her,” reads the letter. “Although Britney has not read and does not intend to read your book, she and millions of her fans were shocked to see how you have exploited her for monetary gain. She will not tolerate it, nor should she.”
“You of all people know the abuse and wrongdoing Britney had to endure during the conservatorship, after initially growing up with a ‘ruinous,’ alcoholic father,” the letter continues, addressing Jamie Lynn Spears. “In fact, your own book reportedly states that your father ‘spent most of my life in that cycle of ruinous behavior. His bouts of drinking caused me periods of torment and sorrow.’ As I have previously stated, having endured a 13-year conservatorship that stripped her of civil rights and fundamental liberties, Britney will no longer be bullied by her father or anyone else. Britney was the family’s breadwinner and she also otherwise supported you. Publicly airing false or fantastical grievances is wrong, especially when designed to sell books.”
Jamie Lynn Spears responded by releasing an official statement on Friday stating that “the book is not about her.” Jamie has referred to her sister’s behavior over the years as “spiraling”, “paranoid” and “erratic.”The lawyers of Britney Spears have shunned Jamie Lynn Spears asking her to cease and desist all the references made to Britney in a derogatory way in the promotional claims. “If you fail to do so or defame her, Britney will be forced to consider and take all appropriate legal action,” said the letter.
