Jamie Lynn Spears took to social media on Sunday to share rare photos of her 13-year-old daughter, Maddie, dressed up for her first school dance.
“HOCO 2021,” the “Sweet Magnolias” actress, 30, wrote alongside photos of her eldest child wearing a bright green dress while posing with friends, family and her date for the night — even though she strategically shielded Maddie’s face in the pics.
“don’t worry, I also can’t believe my baby’s growing up and going to her first dance and doing all the things that make time zoom by and stand still at the same time,” added Spears.
The “Zoey 101” alum welcomed Maddie at the age of 17 in 2008 with now-ex Casey Aldridge. Spears is also mom to Ivey, 3, with husband Jamie Watson.
Spears’ celebratory weekend was disrupted Monday when she was faced with more blowback from her forthcoming memoir, “Things I Should Have Said,” set to hit stores in January 2022.
“We heard you. We’re taking action,” the nonprofit organization said in a statement on Instagram. “We are deeply sorry to anyone we offended. We are declining the donation from Jamie Lynn Spears’ upcoming book.”
While a reason wasn’t provided, fans have surmised that mounting criticism from Britney Spears’ passionate fanbase played a part in This Is My Brave’s decision to dissociate from Jamie Lynn.
A portion of #FreeBritney supporters believe the younger Spears has not adequately advocated for the dissolution of Britney’s conservatorship. The restrictive legal arrangement that controls Britney’s personal, medical and financial affairs was established in 2008 by the pop superstar’s estranged father, Jamie Spears.
“Maybe I didn’t support her the way the public would like me to with a hashtag on a public platform, but I can assure you that I’ve supported my sister — long before there was a hashtag — and I’ll support her long after,” Jamie Lynn said on Instagram in June after receiving flak for staying silent on the matter.
While addressing the court that month, Britney claimed her family didn’t do a “goddamn thing” to help liberate her from the grueling conditions of her conservatorship. The “Toxic” singer alleged that she was forced into a mental health facility, forced to take lithium and forced to have an IUD contraceptive inserted, all against her will.
Britney also said that she wanted to “sue” her family and see her father, Jamie, 69, charged with “conservatorship abuse.”
The Grammy winner and her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, successfully had her dad suspended from the conservatorship on Sept. 29. A hearing to address its termination altogether is scheduled for Nov. 12.
