Jamie Lynn Spears is taking her time to share her life with fans in her next memoir Things I should have said.
The “Zoey 101” alumni wants to use the book to tell her “the truth the right way”, including getting pregnant at 16 from her daughter Maddie.
In an excerpt shared with People, Spears recalled the aftermath of the revelation of her pregnancy and the “anger” of her father, Jamie Spears.
“The entire Spears team was already involved in my sister’s PR difficulties and everyone around me just wanted to make this ‘problem’ go away,” he wrote. “My family and leaders pulled me out of school until they figured out what to do next. They took away my smartphone, fearing the news would come out, and insisted that no one share any information with anyone, especially the press. My father and I stopped talking and the tension was terrible. “
The young star then spent most of the time in her room.
“One person after another – and there were many – came into my room trying to convince me that having a baby at this point in my life was a bad idea,” Spears recalled.
According to her, there was only one person on her “team to show any support for my desire to keep my baby”.
“The next option was for me to go to Mercy Ministries, a home for single mothers in Tennessee, where I could eventually give my baby up for adoption. Dad and I had a fight, throwing words and insults. He grabbed me by the shoulders and held on tight in hopes of yielding to his will. I got in his face and yelled, ‘NO! I will not go.’ I couldn’t face any of them. I ran away from them, panting with rage, “she continued.
She later claimed she wasn’t even allowed to tell her sister, Britney Spears.
“They went so far as to hide my pregnancy from my sister, saying, ‘It’s too risky to tell Britney about the baby.’ I needed her more than ever and she was unable to help me in my most vulnerable moment, “he said.” Britney’s condition was escalating into something more troubling. They were worried that her instability at the time made her unreliable. . I followed what my team told me to do because I was a minor and didn’t want to cause any more problems. Britney learned about the pregnancy when the article was published. To this day, the pain of not being able to tell. to my sister it remains “.
“I was banned and practically hidden. The misery and loneliness persisted “.
