Britney’s reaction

Britney Spears also took to Instagram to express her thoughts on the breakup, stating, “Six years is a long time to be with someone so, I’m a little shocked but … I’m not here to explain why because it’s honestly nobody’s business !!!” She went on to thank her friends for their support during this challenging time, emphasizing her need to move forward.

In the midst of her newfound single status, Britney Spears has been keeping busy with various personal projects. She’s been working on new music and is set to release her memoir, “The Woman in Me,” on October 24. These creative endeavors demonstrate her resilience and determination to chart her own path.

However, recent headlines have brought attention to Britney’s sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, who was announced as a contestant on season 32 of “Dancing With the Stars.” Britney, it seems, is not entirely pleased with this career move. An insider explained, “Jamie Lynn’s DWTS announcement didn’t sit well with Britney. She feels like given what she’s going through, it’s not the right time.” Britney is concerned that her sister may be capitalizing on her high-profile divorce and upcoming memoir release.

The insider also revealed that Britney “doesn’t feel she’s being protected by her family at the moment.” This highlights the ongoing strain in Britney’s relationship with her family, which dates back to her conservatorship in 2008. During her legal battle for freedom, she accused her parents and sister of not supporting her, leading to the termination of the conservatorship in November 2021.
