The nonprofit organization that Jamie Lynn Spears pledged to support through sales of her upcoming memoir has declined to accept any money from her.
The group This Is My Brave announced yesterday that its team passed on an opportunity to receive proceeds from “Things I Should Have Said,” which is slated to hit stores on Jan. 18, 2022.
“We heard you. We’re taking action,” the mental health-focused charity said in a statement on Instagram.“We are deeply sorry to anyone we offended. We are declining the donation from Jamie Lynn Spears’ upcoming book.”
This Is My Brave further explained in the caption of the post that it had been “recommended to be a beneficiary organization for the proceeds” of the memoir, but ultimately “made the decision to decline the offer.”
While This Is My Brave did not provide a reason, Britney Spears’ fans likely played a role.
#FreeBritney supporters have been critical of Jamie Lynn since her pop star sister accused their family of being complicit in the conservatorship that has controlled Britney’s personal affairs, estate and medical care for the past 13 years.
Britney has also said that she wants to sue her family and see her estranged father, Jamie Spears, charged with “conservatorship abuse.”
While Jamie Lynn insisted in an Instagram video in June that she has “only loved, adored and supported” Britney, the siblings have publicly sparred several times in recent months.
