Jamie Lynn Spears appeared to respond to the conspiracy that her sister, Britney Spears, is being held in a mental health facility against her will.

The younger Spears sibling posted a defence on Twitter, alongside an old video of herself defending her sister from paparazzi and hecklers.

“10 years ago, who was there?? I have been here long before anyone else and I’ll be here long after,” she wrote. “I love my sister with everything I have. So anyone or anything that speaks to the contrary can GTFOH with all the comments about what you don’t understand.”

“Don’t come for me or the ones I love anymore,” she continued in a follow-up tweet. “You can move the ‘blank’ outta here with all that, just like this other lady who was running her mouth [in the video].”

Britney was a target for tabloid fodder and paparazzi hounds in the late 2000s – and has recently been the subject of scrutiny once again after shechecked herself into a mental health facility on April 3.

As INSIDER’s Ellen Cranley previously reported, the conspiracy known as#FreeBritney gained traction after a “special emergency” episode of the podcast Britney’s Gram from last week.

The #FreeBritney conspiracy theory says Britney Spears is being held against her will, and her mum appears to support it

The Spears-centric podcast aired a voicemail from an anonymous former member of Spears’ legal team who said she was being held against her will in a facility since early January.

Despite multiple reports citing sources who say it was a positive decision made by the 37-year-old singer, fans aren’t so sure what to believe.

Britney was seen out and about on Easter Sunday with her boyfriend, Sam Asghari. As TMZ reported, she seemed to be taking a day-long break away from the facility, where she’s still residing “voluntarily.”

Representatives for Britney didn’t respond to INSIDER’s request for comment on the conspiracy theory.
