AceShowbiz - Jamie Lynn Spears has gotten emotional when talking about her strained relationship with her older sister Britney Spears. The actress-turned-author broke down in tears in a teaser for her upcoming sit-down with "Good Morning America", her first TV interview since her older sister's conservatorship ended.
Sitting down with Juju Chang to discuss her new memoir, "Things I Should Have Said", which focuses on her famous family, the "Zoey 101" alum's emotions flipped when Britney became the topic of conversation. Wearing a white blazer with matching trousers and a tight shirt, she grabbed a tissue and ruined her makeup while declaring, "I love my sister."
Juju intervened when she noticed Jamie Lynn's chin trembled. "But things have gotten complicated," the host stated, to which Britney's younger sister responded, "I guess so." The 30-year-old actress/author was also asked, "What has caused this rift?" She then immediately looked up as more tears fell from her face.
In the preview, Juju addressed Jamie Lynn's book title. The TV host said, "The book title is 'Things I Should Have Said'." She went on to dig deep on the topic as she asked the "Steel Magnolias" actress, "What do you regret not saying?"
Jamie Lynn herself has been the target of social media trolls since Britney called out their family for the pain they caused to the "Toxic" hitmaker during her conservatorship battle. Jamie Lynn was also recently unfollowed by her older sister on Instagram despite her attempt to fix their broken relationship.
Last October, Britney appeared to shade her sibling over her forthcoming memoir "Things I Should Have Said". The book was previously titled "I Must Confess", a lyric from her 1998 debut single, "…Baby One More Time".
"I'm thinking of releasing a book next year," Britney joked. She added, "But I'm having issues coming up with a title so maybe my fans could help !!!!" She continued, "Option #1 … 'S**t, I really don't know' Option #2 … 'I really care what people think' !!!! What do you guys think ????"
Of the situation, a source said at the time, "It's sad to say, but Britney isn't all that surprised that Jamie Lynn is using this opportunity with the media spotlight on their family to promote her own book." The insider went on to add, "All she ever wanted was to support her family before [the conservatorship] began. What saddens Britney the most is that Jamie Lynn isn't even using this opportunity to speak out in support of her."
