Deeply sorry nonprofit declines donations from Jamie Lynn Spears memoir – Page Six

The nonprofit organization that Jamie Lynn Spears pledged to support through sales of her forthcoming memoir has declined to accept any money from the beleaguered star.

In yet another blowback for the controversial book, the 501(c)(3) This Is My Brave announced Monday that its team passed on an opportunity to receive proceeds from “Things I Should Have Said,” which is slated to hit stores on Jan. 18, 2022.

“We heard you. We’re taking action,” the mental health-focused charity said in a statement on Instagram. “We are deeply sorry to anyone we offended. We are declining the donation from Jamie Lynn Spears’ upcoming book.”

This Is My Brave further explained in the caption of the post that it had been “recommended to be a beneficiary organization for the proceeds” of the memoir, but ultimately “made the decision to decline the offer.”

Jamie Lynn’s business manager, Lou Taylor, did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

While This Is My Brave did not provide a reason, the growing battle cries of Britney Spears’ fans likely played a role.

#FreeBritney supporters have been critical of Jamie Lynn, 30, since her pop star sister, 39, accused their family of being complicit in the conservatorship that has controlled Britney’s personal affairs, estate and medical care for the past 13 years.

The “Toxic” singer has also said that she wants to sue her family and see her estranged father, Jamie Spears, charged with “conservatorship abuse.”

While Jamie Lynn insisted in an Instagram video in June that she has “only loved, adored and supported” Britney, the siblings have publicly sparred several times in recent months.

The Grammy winner most recently took issue with the former “Zoey 101” star initially planning to call her memoir “I Must Confess,” a lyric from Britney’s 1998 single, “…Baby One More Time.”

After Jamie Lynn changed the title of her tome earlier this month, Britney quipped on Instagram that she was “thinking of releasing a book” of her own next year.

“I’m having issues coming up with a title so maybe my fans could help !!!!” she wrote. “Option #1 … ‘S–t, I really don’t know’ Option #2 … ‘I really care what people think’ 😂🙄🤷🏼‍♀️ !!!! What do you guys think 🤔🤔🤔 ????”

Jamie, 69, was suspended as the conservator of Britney’s estate in September. A court hearing is set for Nov. 12 to decide whether to terminate the conservatorship altogether.
