Britney Spears’ mother begged fans to “stop” criticizing her and the star’s sister, Jamie Lynn Spears.
The ‘Toxic’ singer is trying to get her father, Jamie Spears, removed from her role as co-curator and recently called the tutelage she has been under since 2008 “abusive”, and after her supporters have repeatedly targeted relatives for allegedly not showing their support, Lynne Spears has had enough.
Lynne had shared a photo of a huge spider web outside her house on Instagram, prompting trolls to crack jokes about her youngest daughter Jamie Lynn Spears.
One of them wrote: “Awww cute! Jamie Lynn decorated her new place. Sorry I couldn’t help myself.”
Another commented: “Oooh look at that! It’s Jamie Lynn and his busy house.”
A few minutes later, Lynne responded to the two posters by simply saying “stop”.
The matriarch – who is seen as an interested party in the case, although she doesn’t have a formal role in the conversation like her ex-husband – then added a lengthy comment urging people to be better informed before they go. attacking his family.
She wrote: “I do [speak up] using my lawyer and the court system from day one and NO [by] via social networks or the press! You have to do your research! Sorry, you are so misinformed! Have a nice day and try positivity! (sic) “
Lynne has supported Britney’s candidacy for Jamie to be removed from office and recently told the courts that her ex-partner was “unable to put my daughter’s interests ahead of his professionally and personally” and so ‘he continues to be her. co-curator is “not in the best interests of my daughter”.
Her defensive Instagram comments came just days after Jamie Lynn shared an audio clip of her three-year-old daughter, Ivey, comforting her while she cried.
In the short clip, Ivey said, “It will be fine, mum. It must be fine, mum.”
Her tearful mother replied, “Thank you, baby.”
Jamie Lynn first shared the audio on a black screen, then shared it again with a GIF that encouraged his followers to turn on their “sound” in order to hear the exchange.

Jamie Lynn had shared mirror selfies on his account with the caption: “Peace of the Lord be with you and your spirit [peace and heart emojis] (sic) “
And soon after, Britney shared her dance video with her own religious message.
She wrote: “May the Lord wrap your wicked ass in joy today… it’s Bad Guy part 2… same new dance song… if you don’t like it… don’t watch it !!!!! (sic) ) “
After Britney’s post, Jamie Lynn deleted the caption from his own selfies, leaving only the emojis.
