This is My Brave announced on Monday that they refused to receive proceeds from Jamie Lynn’s books, “Things I Should Have Said”, which is expected to hit stores on January 18, 2022.
The charity, which focuses on mental health, posted a statement on Instagram stating, “We heard you. We’re taking action. We are deeply sorry to anyone we offended. We are declining the donation from Jamie Lynn Spears’ upcoming book.”
This Is My Brave also explained in their post’s caption that they were “recommended to be a beneficiary organization for the proceeds” of the celebrity’s memoir, however they “made the decision to decline the offer.”
The nonprofit organization didn’t mention their specific reason for declining the offer but there’s a possibility that Britney Spears’ fans are among those who influenced their decision.
The #FreeBritney supporters showed their unwavering support for Britney who has been under a conservatorship for the last 13 years. The 39-year-old singer claimed that her family had been complicit throughout her conservatorship. It’s no surprise that her fans criticized Jamie Lynn, 30.
Britney’s life has been under the control of her conservatorship, especially with her dad, Jamie Spears, who had served as her co-conservator until he was suspended last month.
As for Jamie Lynn, she shared a video on her Instagram Stories in June. She said, “The only reason I haven’t [spoken] before is because I felt like until my sister was able to speak for herself and say what she felt she needed to say publicly, that it wasn’t my place and it wasn’t the right thing to do. But now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel like I need to say.”
She added, “I think it’s extremely clear since the day I was born that I’ve only loved, adored and supported my sister. I mean, this is my freaking big sister, before any of this bulls–t.”
Jamie Lynn’s memoir was initially titled, “I Must Confess”, which is part of the lyric from her sister’s debut single, “…Baby One More Time”.
After receiving backlash from Britney’s fans, Jamie Lynn changed the title to “Things I Should Have Said.”
