Jamie Lynn Spears’ husband weighs in on Britney Spears after singer said she wanted to ‘sue’ family

The husband of Britney Spears‘ sister Jamie Lynn broke his silence following the Toxic singer’s scathing testimony against her dad and the family on Wednesday June 23. 

Jamie Watson, Jamie Lynn’s husband of seven years, assured the New York Post on Friday that the family ‘wants the best’ for Britney — despite her saying at the hearing: ‘I would honestly like to sue my family.’ 

Throughout the course of her 23-minute testimony at a Los Angeles court, Britney had said that the family did ‘nothing’ to help her amid dad Jamie Spears’ ‘abusive’ conservatorship over the last 13 years.

Watson seemed to defend the whole family in his statements while speaking to their character.     

‘I can assure you her family loves her and wants the best for her,’ he said. ‘I wouldn’t be around people who weren’t. Who wouldn’t want to be in support of Britney?’ 

His statements seemed a far cry away from Britney’s very coherent detailing of the family’s alleged lack of action when it came to her very desperate situation, and even accusations they all had profited off of her. 

She claimed that her father would force psychological evaluations, therapy, rehab and even forced her to work against her will. Spears said he took her credit card, passport, possessions and cash away, and forced her to live under 24-7 surveillance. 

‘The control he had over someone as powerful as me, as he loved the control to hurt his own daughter 100,000%. He loved it,’ she maintained.

Best interest? 'I can assure you her family loves her and wants the best for her,' he said. 'I wouldn't be around people who weren't. Who wouldn't want to be in support of Britney?' Watson said

She also hit out against the whole family, however, telling the judge: ‘I would honestly like to sue my family, to be totally honest with you.’

‘Not only did my family not do a goddamn thing, my dad was all for it. Anything that happened to me had to be approved by my dad,’ she said. 

Britney continued to say: ‘I also would like to be able to share my story with the world, and what they did to me, instead of it being a hush-hush secret to benefit all of them.

‘I want to be able to be heard on what they did to me by making me keep this in for so long, it’s not good for my heart. I’ve been so angry and I cry every day, it concerns me, I’m told I’m not allowed to expose the people who did this to me.’  

Though she hit out against her ‘family’ in vague terms, it was unclear if Jamie Lynn, her brother Bryan or Watson were included in that, or if it was just her mom Lynne and her dad.

Legal action: 'My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship and my management who played a key role in punishing me — ma'am, they should be in jail' Spears told the judge

The Zoey 101 star, 30, had previously spoken out about her sister’s mental health. ‘You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters,’ she replied.

But in Britney’s plea to have the conservatorship revoked without an evaluation, she continued to speak on her distrust of the family, saying they had ‘lived off’ the conservatorship.

‘Considering my family has lived off my conservatorship for 13 years, I won’t be surprised if one of them has something to say going forward, and say, “We don’t think this should end, we have to help her.” Especially if I get my fair turn exposing what they did to me,’ she warned.   

She also continued to get serious as she told the judge that anyone involved in the conservatorship ‘should be in jail.’ ‘My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship and my management who played a key role in punishing me — ma’am, they should be in jail.’  

Amid her in-person testimony and the support she has received from Hollywood and the #FreeBritney movement — many of whom have been protesting outside of courthouses — her music and album sales have continued to thrive. 

According to TMZ even deep into her conservatorship in 2017 she was still at the top of her game and topping charts, and the added buzz around her conservatorship seems to have continued to help her music.
