Britney Spears has issued a cease and desist letter to her sister Jamie Lynn.
Britney's lawyer Mathew Rosengart has stated in the letter that his client will file a lawsuit against her sister, if she continues to talk "derogatorily" during a press campaign promoting her book Things I Should Have Said.
Rosengart added that he "will not tolerate" Jamie Lynn trying to use this publicity to promote his book.
The letter states, "You of all people know the abuse and wrongdoing Britney had to endure during the conservatorship, after initially growing up with a ‘ruinous’ alcoholic father. In fact, your own book reportedly states that your father ‘spent most of my life in that cycle of ruinous behavior. His bouts of drinking caused me periods of torment and sorrow".
"As I have previously stated, having endured a 13-year conservatorship that stripped her of civil rights and fundamental liberties, Britney will no longer be bullied by her father or anyone else. Britney was the family’s breadwinner and she also otherwise supported you. Publicly airing false or fantastical grievances is wrong, especially when designed to sell books. It is also potentially unlawful and defamatory".
The letter concludes by saying, “You recently reportedly stated that the book was ‘not about her.’ She takes you at your word and we, therefore, demand that you cease and desist from referencing Britney derogatorily during your promotional campaign. If you fail to do so or defame her, Britney will be forced to consider and take all appropriate legal action".
Jamie Lynn has yet to comment on this.
