AceShowbiz - Jamie Lynn Spears has responded to Britney Spears' cease and desist letter with the help of her lawyer Bryan Freedman. In a new letter, the former "Zoey 101" star's attorney blasted the "...Baby One More Time" singer's "intimidating" social media posts.
In the document obtained by TMZ on Wednesday, January 19, Bryan insisted that Britney's letter, written by her lawyer Matthew S. Rosengart, doesn't show any mistruth on Bryan's client's part. "As an initial matter, in your Letter you state that Britney is going to take the 'high road.' However, just today your client posted vile statements on social media concerning Jamie Lynn," wrote Bryan.
"These include, but are not limited to, statements such as Britney should have 'slapped you and mamma right across your f**king faces!!!' and 'Whipped your a**' and 'Popped the s**t out of your a**,' " Bryan further detailed. He added, "As you know from previous social media posts, Jamie Lynn has had her children violently threatened, and we have no doubt that these new intimidating and threatening social media posts will lead to similar threats of violence."
Bryan went on to highlight that Britney's harsh social media posts, which cause death threats to Jamie Lynn and her family, are neither the "high road," nor "anything that will be tolerated." The attorney also wondered why Matthew claimed that Jamie Lynn's book is "potentially unlawful, defamatory, misleading and has outrageous claims in it" while Matthew and Britney admitted that they haven't actually read "any portion" of the book.
"Frankly, it is impossible to understand what you are requesting my client to cease and desist from doing since the Letter fails to specify any legal wrongdoing whatsoever," Bryan stressed. He then concluded his letter, "Jamie Lynn hopes that there will no further postings or inflammatory letters being sent to the media," adding that the "Sweet Magnolias" actress "supports Britney" and hopes her big sister "can get the healing, peace and freedom she rightfully deserves."
Britney and his legal team sent Jamie Lynn a forceful cease and desist letter on January 17. Just days after sharing that Britney would like to take the "high road" as she believed Jamie Lynn's memoir "Things I Should Have Said" is potentially "defamatory," Britney called her younger sibling "selfish little brat" in an Instagram post, in which she also slammed her mother Lynne Spears.
