The Britney Spears conservatorship controversy has had further repercussions for her sister as Jamie Lynn Spears has been blocked from making a donation to a mental health organisation.
Jamie Lynn has a new memoir, Things I Should Have Said, on the way, but it’s not going swimmingly. On Monday, October 18th, the mental health organisation This Is My Brave revealed that they wouldn’t be accepting a donation from the star after her memoir received criticism online.
“We hear you,” the organisation stated on their Instagram. “This Is My Brave was recently recommended to be a beneficiary organization for the proceeds from Jamie Lynn Spears’ upcoming book. We have made the decision to decline the offer of receiving proceeds from the book sales.”
Jamie Lynn had previously revealed on October 11th that This Is My Brave would be the beneficiaries of proceeds from her memoir. “I’m so happy to announce that a portion of my book proceeds will be going to @thisismybrave, because I know how scary it can be to share personal struggles, especially if you don’t feel you have the support or a safe space to do so, and they are doing amazing work to support and encourage people as they bravely share their experiences,” she wrote back then.
Yet her decision to even publish a memoir has not been well received online. Britney even joined in, making a joke that she would be publishing her own book. “I’m thinking of releasing a book next year,” she said. “But I’m having issues coming up with a title so maybe my fans could help !!!! Option #1 … ‘Sh–, I really don’t know’ Option #2 … ‘I really care what people think’ !!!!’ What do you guys think ????”
Britney, of course, blamed her family for her awful conservatorship. She told judges in June, “I would honestly like to sue my family, to be totally honest with you. I also would like to be able to share my story with the world, and what they did to me, instead of it being a hush-hush secret to benefit all of them.”
