Britney Spears' Aunt Calls Brother Jamie Spears 'Barbaric': 'He Caged Her'

“He’s barbaric. Who gets to do that to someone? She was just manipulated and used. And he wants to say he protected her?” she said. “No. He caged her! He caged her.”

She added, “He swooped in at the perfect moment, when she was at her most vulnerable, to take control. I don’t think he was the hero. I think that he manipulated the situation, and that he has benefited from this situation for [over] a decade.”

Leigh Ann discussed why the other members of the Spears family never stepped in to stop what was happening to Britney.

“I don’t know what anyone could’ve done,” she said. “I do know this: I know that if Lynne [Britney’s mom] could’ve done anything, she would’ve.”

“She wants away from Jamie, she wants to be free, she wants to get married, she wants to have kids,” she said of her niece. “I don’t know if [Jamie] can be prosecuted for anything, but he needs to be held accountable.”

Britney recently put her family on blast in a scathing new Instagram post.
