Britney Spears' family 'wants the best for her' claims Jamie Lynn's husband after singer's 'abuse' claims in court
BRITNEY Spears’ brother-in-law Jamie – sister Jamie Lynn’s husband – defended the rest of the Spears family against her claims in court.
The singer, 39, gave a speech during a court hearing on Wednesday about her conservatorship, where she slammed her family and said the whole thing was “abusive.”
After hearing what Britney had to say, fans blasted her sister Jamie Lynn for not being standing up for her and being supportive over the course of the past 13 years of conservatorship.
The Sweet Magnolias actress, 30, ended up turning her Instagram comments off, and while she has yet to speak out on it all, her husband Jamie did.
He defended his in-laws, telling The New York Post: “I can assure you her family loves her and wants the best for her.
“I wouldn’t be around people who weren’t. Who wouldn’t want to be in support of Britney?”
After her intense hearing on Wednesday, Britney jetted off with her boyfriend Sam Asghari for a little relaxation at a hotel in Hawaii.
She was all smiles as she soaked up the Maui sun, walking along the grassy property with her longtime beau and lounging in her bikini.
The pop star left for her trip on Thursday, one day after finally getting to speak out on her conservatorship for the first time since 2008.
During Wednesday's court session, the singer made a number of shocking claims during her virtual appearance, including that her family sent her to a $60K rehab at a small Los Angeles home.
She also compared the "abusive" conservatorship to sex trafficking: “The only similar thing to this is called sex trafficking, making anyone work against their will, taking all their possessions away, credit card, cash, phone, passport."
Additionally, the Toxic singer shared she wants to have children with her boyfriend Sam but said the "conservator won't let" her "take [her] IUD out and have a baby."
While sister Jamie Lynn didn't speak out in any interviews or on social media about Britney, some of her fellow Zoey 101 cast members did send their support.
Paul Butcher, 27, – who played Jamie Lynn’s little brother, Dustin, on the Nickelodeon series – shared an emotional post on Instagram begging for Britney to be able to “live the life SHE wants to live.”
He wrote in the lengthy IG Story: “It breaks my heart hearing what Britney had to say and hearing what she’s been through.
“From someone who’s known her first hand, I used to be in awe and look up to her as a kid in pure wonder. She always had the kindest heart and has always had a magic about her, a light.”
Jamie Lynn’s other Zoey 101 cast mate, Alexa Nikolas – who played the star’s outgoing PCA roommate, Nicole – shared several messages to stand up for the #FreeBritney movement .
“I support her,” Alexa, 29, wrote on her Instagram Story alongside an article about Britney’s bombshell court testimony earlier this week.
