Britney Spears’ younger sister Jamie Lynn has announced she is releasing her first ever memoir.

The former Zoey 101 star revealed the news on Monday, amid her pop star sister’s ongoing court battle to officially end her controversial conservatorship.

Taking to Instagram, the Sweet Magnolias actress revealed that the book would be released on January 18.

‘I can’t believe I finally finished writing my book!!!’ she wrote. ‘“THINGS I SHOULD HAVE SAID” has been in the works for quite a longggg time now.’

The actor and musician explained: ‘Back In 2017, after Maddie’s life changing accident, I felt a strong conviction to share my story, but there was a lot of personal work and healing that had to happen before I could share my truth the proper way.

‘I’ve spent my whole life believing that I had to pretend to be perfect, even when I wasn’t, so for the first time I am opening up about my own mental health, because this process challenged me to have to be painfully honest with myself, and face a lot of hard things, that I normally would have just glossed right over, like I was taught to.’

The mother-of-two continued: ‘I owe it to myself, my younger self, and to my daughters to be an example that you should never edit yourself or your truth to please anyone else.

‘I know I still have ALOT of learning to do, but I feel like finishing this book gave me closure on this “30 year long” chapter of my life, and hopefully helps anyone else out there who forgot their worth, lost their voice, or is trying to break an unhealthy cycle in their life.’

She continued: ‘Which is why, I’m so happy to announce that a portion of my book proceeds will be going to @thisismybrave ,because I know how scary it can be to share personal struggles, especially if you don’t feel you have the support or a safe space to do so, and they are doing amazing work to support and encourage people as they bravely share their experiences.’

‘Last but certainly not least, I want you all to know, YOU matter, YOUR story matters,YOU are enough, and don’t ever let this world try to convince you otherwise,’ the country musician concluded.

Meanwhile, Toxic hitmaker Britney will return to court on November 12, where it will be decided whether the conservatorship can finally be removed. 

Britney had previously claimed in June to claim the conservatorship was ‘abusive’ and September saw her father Jamie Spears removed as a conservator by a court.
