Britney and Jamie Lynn are escalating their family drama.
Britney’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart just sent a cease and desist letter to Jamie Lynn as she continues to promote her new memoir, “Things I Should Have Said.”
Jamie Lynn must stop making derogatory references to Britney in her promotional campaigns, the letter states. Britney could be threatened if Jamie Lynn continues to make derogatory comments about Britney during her promotional campaign. “be forced to consider and take all appropriate legal action.”
Jamie Lynn was on the podcast this week “Call Her Daddy.” The host read a disturbing excerpt from the new book.
“Britney said to me, ‘Baby I’m scared.’ And she took a large knife from the kitchen, pulled me along to my room and locked us both inside,”The excerpt was.
Jamie Lynn responded, “That was really scary and hated that that happened, but also she must have been in pain, too. But I was a kid. I didn’t know what to do.”
The podcast and Jamie Lynn’s entire publicity tour is infuriating Britney, who posted an expletive-filled rant on social media.
“You selfish little brat! F*** you Jamie Lynn. You shut me out when I needed you the most!”Britney wrote.
Royal Oakes, legal analyst, tells Inside Edition how a cease and desist notice like that sent to Jamie Lynn can be used. “pretty much doomed to failure.”
“Either it’s just going to just generate more interest in the sister’s book. Or, if it winds up in court, Britney would lose, because you have to show malice. You have to show you absolutely knew you were lying and trying to hurt somebody’s reputation — almost impossible to do,” Oakes said.
Jamie Lynn claims that she loves her big sis despite all the drama.
“I love my sister. I’m her biggest fan. But guess what, sisters are sisters, or whatever, you know,” Jamie Lynn said.
Britney Spears claims that the incident with the knife never happened.
Her father is being accused by her legal team of taking more than $6 million from her earnings. He has not commented, but said in the past he has always acted in Britney’s best interest.
