    Amid criticism that Britney's family is financially taking advantage of the pop star, Jamie Lynn confirmed that she is the only one not taking money from Britney.

    Jamie Lynn set the record straight by sharing a screenshot of a Daily Mail headline that stated she "is the ONLY family member not on singer's payroll."

    " leave my broke-ass alone," Jamie wrote alongside the screenshot.

    Jamie Lynn's post comes several days after a New Yorker exposé alleged that Britney's father, Jamie, mother, Lynne, and brother, Bryan, have all received money from the singer.

    "Jamie, Lynne, and Spears’s brother, Bryan, have all spent years on Spears’s payroll, and, as friends who spoke with her at the time recalled, she was increasingly resentful of their efforts to influence her,” journalists Ronan Farrow and Jia Tolentino wrote

    This isn't the first time Jamie Lynn has shut down rumors that she received financial assistance from her sister either. Back in 2019, Jamie Lynn wrote that she had "never been paid a dime" from her sister.

    "I have NEVER been paid a dime from my sister, that is HER hard earned money, and I am NOT entitled to a cent of it. I would not spend money I did not earn," Jamie Lynn wrote in a now deleted Instagram comment. 

    Jamie Lynn also recently spoke out about Britney's conservatorship for the first time, saying she felt it "wasn't her place to speak" until Britney did.

    "I think it’s extremely clear that since the day I was born that I’ve only loved, adored, and supported my sister. This is my freakin’ big sister before any of this bullshit...I have nothing to gain or lose either way. This situation does not affect me either way, because I am only her sister, who is only concerned about her happiness," Jamie said.

    While Britney hasn't specifically spoken out about Jamie Lynn by name, I can only hope that Jamie Lynn has been there for Britney and the sisters are on good terms.
