Did Britney Spears’s Sister Take $50 Million From Her? New Records Make Fans Wonder
Jamie Lynn Spears and her husband are on record with a hefty mortgage from 2020, while Britney was still under her conservatorship.
Britney Spears’s little sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, has tried to make a name for herself in Hollywood since she was a child actress back in the early 2000s. In the case of Britney’s conservatorship, she’s been a serious subject of debate: whose side is she really on? New evidence may have emerged to show that those closest to Jamie Lynn could have been taking advantage of Britney’s controlled finances during her 13-year conservatorship.
“My so-called support system hurt me deeply!!!!” Britney wrote in an Instagram post from July 2021. “This conservatorship killed my dreams.” Since then, the pop star has been hot and cold with her sister, declaring how proud she is of Jamie Lynn in some Instagram posts, while criticizing her in others.
Fan account @BritneyTheStan posted an image of public records from the Tangipahoa Parish Clerk of Court system, which lists property acquisitions in the area of Louisiana where Jamie Lynn and her husband, James “Jamie” Watson, currently live. The information appears to contain a legal mortgage from 2020 in the value of $50 million, which the fan account noted was “nearly 5 times their reported net worth!”
Mortgages can be secured in multiple ways, but we’re pretty sure that the cash isn’t coming from Jamie Lynn’s book deal.
Jamie Lynn was previously noted as one of Britney’s trustees during the conservatorship, with her father, Jamie Spears, as the main appointee. These roles included decision-making on matters especially related to Britney’s finances.
Jamie had also reportedly taken a cut of Britney’s earnings to supplement his work during the conservatorship. According to an interview with The Daily Mail, Jamie is currently living with his youngest daughter in what is assumed to be the home financed by the $50 million mortgage loan.
It’s not exactly ethical, but the retrieval of funds from Britney’s accounts allocated in various ways is certainly not out of the question. And yes, this also means three Jamies are living together under one roof (yikes!).
How Britney’s money may or may not have been used under her conservatorship is a constant source of debate amongst fans. A website called Exhale even has an entire forum dedicated to “following the money trail” of Britney’s earnings pre- and post-conservatorship.
While Jamie Lynn is gearing up for the premier of her latest media series, Special Forces, she took time out during the holidays to spend quality time with her family. She recently shared some photos on her Instagram page of festive activities with her husband and children.
If an abuse of legal rights is present, #FreeBritney fans will ensure justice is served. But for now, we really want to know: What does a $50 million mortgage in a sleepy Louisiana town really get you??
