Britney Spears and her younger sister Jamie Lynn have been in the limelight since they were young, but who are their parents?
From a very young age, the Spears sisters have been in the public eye. Now, in 2023, both of them are still receiving media attention. Britney recently published a revealing autobiography and Jamie Lynn is making a name for herself in reality TV.
Britney Spears published her autobiography, 'The Woman In Me,' in October. In it, she talks about her early career and her experience under a conservatorship that her father imposed on her. One section of the book touches on her relationship with her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears, who is currently a contestant on the reality TV show, I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!. Britney and Jamie Lynn haven't always seen eye-to-eye, and their long-standing conflict has been widely reported on over the years.
Jamie Lynn, who got her name from her folks Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears, has appeared on three massive reality television shows in 2023. These include Dancing With The Stars, Special Forces: World's Toughest Test, and currently I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
Britney and her father are currently not on good terms, and she's reported to be attempting to repair her relationship with her mother. On the other hand, Jamie Lynn has not publicly spoken out against her parents. So, who exactly are the individuals who raised two hugely successful stars? Let's take a closer look at what we've been able to uncover.
Parents Of Britney And Jamie Lynn Spears?
The folks of Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears are Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears. Furthermore, they possess an elder sibling, Bryan Spears, who has the same biological parents as them.
Jamie and Lynne tied the knot in 1976 and Bryan Spears, their firstborn, arrived the following year. However, Lynne initiated divorce proceedings in 1980. Despite this, they reconciled in 1981 and had their eldest daughter, Britney. Another ten years passed before Jamie Lynn was born. She's the youngest of the brood.
It is known that they got a divorce in 2002. However, they reignited their love and got married again in 2010 while Britney was under guardianship.
Who's Jamie Spears?
Jamie Spears is the dad of Bryan, Britney, and Jamie Lynn. He's been married to their mom Lynne since 1976, except for a period of time between 2002 and 2010 when they were not together.
Back in 2008, Britney Spears was placed under a court-sanctioned conservatorship with Jamie and attorney Andrew Wallet acting as her conservators. From then until 2021, Jamie and Andrew were responsible for managing all aspects of Britney's life, including her financial affairs. The conservatorship was eventually terminated in 2021.
During the court proceedings, Britney expressed feeling sad while being under the control of her father. However, Jamie stated that he was taking care of his daughter. In an interview with the Daily Mail, he mentioned that he understands not everyone will support his actions, but he has done what he thinks is best for Britney. Despite all the challenges, he still loves his daughter deeply and values their relationship. Additionally, he pointed out that without the conservatorship, it's hard to say where Britney would be right now, and he doesn't know if she would even be alive.
Jamie made a career out of being a conservator, earning an impressive salary of $130,000 (£104,000) per year. There isn't much information available about his past work experience, but Britney revealed in her book, 'The Woman In Me', that her father worked several jobs while she was growing up and also dealt with alcohol dependency.
Britney and Jamie are no longer communicating because the pop star accuses her dad of "abuse" during the time she was under the conservatorship. We don't know if Jamie Lynn has a good relationship with her dad, but she did deny rumors that he was staying with her in 2023 after leaving rehab.
Britney Spears is beaming with joy as she posts a video on Instagram to celebrate the termination of her conservatorship.
Who Exactly Is Lynne Spears?
Lynne Spears is the maternal parent of the famous vocalist Britney in the song 'One More Time' alongside her two other brothers and sisters, Jamie Lynn and Bryan. Her life partner is known as Jamie Spears.
Lynne relocated to New York City in 1991 along with Britney and Jamie with the hope of assisting her eldest daughter in accomplishing her singing aspirations. Britney was enrolled in a performing arts institution during their stay in the city.
Prior to Britney's ascent to fame, Lynne was a teacher and managed a child care center. As per the MailOnline, Lynne had to resume her teaching job in 2023 due to financial challenges.
Lynne and her daughter Britney had a publically close bond until the conservatorship was about to end. Britney, who sang 'I'm A Slave 4 U', stated in an Instagram caption, which has since been deleted, that her mom advised her dad to initiate a conservatorship. According to PEOPLE, Britney said: "Psst, my dad may have started the conservatorship 13 years ago...but what's not known is that my mom was the one who came up with the idea!!!"
Nonetheless, during May of 2023, the duo appeared to be resolving their conflicts, as Britney expressed on Instagram: "Yesterday, my darling mother appeared unexpectedly at my home following a 3-year long absence … it has been a considerable amount of time … as is the case with family, there are always matters that require addressing … but the passing of time mends all grievances!!!"
It appears that Lynne is continuing to be involved in Jamie Lynn's life. She was seen with her grandchildren, Maddie and Ivey, attending Jamie Lynn's performance on Dancing With The Stars in September 2023.
