Jamie Lynn Spears is currently promoting her memoir 'Things I Should Have Said'. She appeared on Good Morning America to discuss the book, as well as reflect on her life and relationship with her family.
Jamie Lynn told GMA that she "was happy" when the conservatorship ended and described events from her perspective.
"When it was put into place I was 17 years old," she said. "I was about to have a baby, so I didn't understand what was happening.
"Nor was I focused on that. I was focused on the fact that I was a 17-year-old about to have a baby. I understand just as little about it then as I do now."
The actress and singer said that she "took no steps to be a part of [the conservatorship]."
She said that "there was no like me overseeing funds or something like that and if there was, that was a misunderstanding."
She also spoke about trying to give Britney resources and support: "I've always been my sister's biggest supporter.
"So when she needed help, I set up ways to do so. Went out of my way to make sure that she had the contacts she needed to possibly go ahead and end this conservatorship and just end this all for our family.
"If it's going to cause this much discord, why continue it?... Everyone has a voice, and it should be heard. So if she wanted to talk to other people, I set that up."
Jamie Lynn Spears also noted that when she spoke to her Britney's previous legal team, "it did not end well in my favour."
She also said that while she tried to help Britney, it was up to her big sister to "walk through the door."
Jamie Lynn says she "adored" her sister, that "she felt like everything to me."
She broke into tears when asked about the rift that has developed between them.
"That love is still there, 100%", she says. "I love my sister. I've only ever loved and supported her and done what's right by her, and she knows that.
"So I don't know why we're in this position right now."
