American pop star Britney Spears issued a cease and desist letter to her sister, actor Jamie Lynn Spears, on Wednesday (January 19) over comments made during the promotion of her book.
According to various media reports, she accused her sister of making “derogatory” statements about her during the promotion of her memoir, “Things I Should Have Said.”
“Although Britney has not read and does not intend to read your book, she and millions of her fans were shocked to see how you have exploited her for monetary gain, she will not tolerate it, nor should she,” variety.com reports quoting the letter issued by Britney’s lawyer.
In the book, as well as on a number of recent interviews, Jamie Lynn Spears has been talking about her life as the sister of a major pop star and told episodes and anecdotes about her older sister’s life.
Britney has recently won a legal battle with her father to terminate his 13 year-long conservatorship.
The conservatorship was set up and overseen by the singer’s father after she had a public breakdown and underwent treatment for undisclosed mental health issues.
