Jamie-Lynn Spears breaks down as she opens up about Britney rift
It's her first time speaking out.
Jamie Lynn Spears has publically spoken about her rift with sister Britney Spears in her first interview since the conservatorship ended.
The former Zoey 101 star appear on Good Morning America to promote her new memoir Things I Should Have Said, which Britney has made clear she isn't happy about.
Clearly emotional as she spoke, Jamie Lynn can been heard saying in a clip released by GMA: "The love is still there, 100 percent. I love my sister. I’ve only ever loved and supported her and done what’s right by her.
"And she knows that, so I don’t know why we’re in this position right now."
Presenter Juju Chang then asked: "But things have gotten complicated?"
Jamie Lynn then replies: "I guess so."

Speaking about Britney’s mental state, Jamie Lynn clearly didn't want to let too much slip, adding: "I can’t really speak to anyone else’s state of mind, I don’t think that’s fair."
In the interview, Jamie Lynn also spoke about her now strained relationship with Britney, claiming that she has always tried to support her sister despite Britney claiming otherwise.
She said: "I’ve always been my sister’s biggest supporter, so when she needed help I set up ways to do so.
"I went out of my way to make sure that she had the contacts she needed to possibly go ahead and end this conservatorship and just end this all for our family. If it’s going to cause this much discord, why continue it?
"It wasn’t about agreeing [or disagreeing] with the conservatorship. Everyone has a voice and it should be heard, so if she wanted to talk to other people, then I did, I set that up."
Jamie Lynn's memoir is set to be released later this month and will take a deep dive into her struggle with mental health and being a teen mom.
