Mental health nonprofit declines donation from Jamie Lynn Spears

A mental health nonprofit organization announced on Monday that it had declined a donation from Jamie Lynn Spears.

This Is My Brave, which supports individuals recovering from mental illness and addiction, said in an Instagram post that it had decided to “decline the offer of receiving proceeds from the book sales” of Spears’ upcoming new book “Things I Should Have Said.”

When announcing her new book, Spears had said she intended to donate part of the proceeds to This Is My Brave.

“We hear you. We’re taking action,” the organization said. “We are deeply sorry to anyone we offended. We are declining the donation from Jamie Lynn Spears’ upcoming book.”

 
After Jamie Lynn Spears announced her new book, Britney Spears appeared to mock and criticize her, writing on Instagram, “I’m thinking of releasing a book next year but I’m having issues coming up with a title so maybe my fans could help !!!! Option #1 … ‘Shit, I really don’t know’ Option #2 … ‘I really care what people think.'”
 
During her bombshell testimony decrying the conditions of her conservatorship, Britney Spears did not specifically name her sister Jamie Lynn Spears as one of the individuals who took advantage of her, but did express a desire to sue her family as a whole.
 
“I would honestly like to sue my family, to be totally honest with you,” Britney Spears said to Judge Brenda Penny in June.
 
Many of her fans took this as a tacit condemnation of Jamie Lynn Spears as well, though she herself denied being among those who contributed to her sister’s discontent with the terms of her conservatorship.
 
The elder Spears later directly criticized Jamie Lynn Spears, saying on social media that she did not like that her younger sister had performed her songs during an awards ceremony.
“I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes !!!!! My so-called support system hurt me deeply !!!! This conservatorship killed my dreams,” Britney Spears wrote in the caption of an Instagram post that read “Take me as I am or kiss my ass eat shit and step on Legos.”
