At the same time, if you didn’t know, there is a viral #FreeBritney movement on social media, as many fans are concerned about Britney‘s well-being under a conservatorship managed by her father Jamie Spears since 2008.

“How about your sister’s OBVIOUS mental illness? Why don’t you speak on that?” a person wrote.

“You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters. She is a strong, badass, unstoppable woman, and that’s the only thing that is OBVIOUS,” Jamie Lynn hit back.

“You guys (the family) need to speak out and clarify all these assumptions. I love you, but around this sensitive situation some clarification is needed for both sides. People need to understand, not assume,” another fan wrote.

“I would never speak out just to clarify things to the public, when the person it pertains to does not want it to happen. I’d rather take all the hate, then speak about someone else’s personal matter, that they want to be kept private,” she responded.

Another fan expressed that “some of us are spimply [sp] interested in what is going on because…we care,” to which she said: “I really appreciate you reaching out in such a respectful way. Your love and support is very much appreciated from me and my family.”

Lynne Spears recently filed this paperwork to get involved in Britney‘s conservatorship.
