Lynn Spears posted a video on Instagram addressing her sister's conservatorship, saying: “Since the day I was born, I’ve only loved, adored and supported my sister.

"I mean this is my freaking big sister, before any of this bulls---.

"I don’t care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has done so many times before. Because I have nothing to gain or lose either way.”

Jamie Lynn Spears added: "Not that I owe the public anything, because my sister knows I love and support her... I’m not my family. I’m my own person. And I’m speaking for myself."
