Jamie Lynn Spears to rumors she stays in Britney’s FL condo: I stay at the Ritz

In our story yesterday about the way Britney Spears’s team controlled her spending, many of you mentioned her sister Jamie Lynn’s recent social media posts. Jamie Lynn had deleted several photos from a condo where she stays in in Destin, Florida, a property worth one million paid for by a trust owned by Britney. Jamie Lynn has spoken about the property in interviews, leading many people in the Free Britney movement to call her out for claiming to not have taken any money from Britney. Seemingly in response to that, Jamie Lynn has posted photos of her family vacation at the Ritz Carlton. She first included a caption with the slideshow defending herself and saying she stays at the Ritz, but she’s since replaced that caption with a more generic one about her vacation. It’s all very shady. I’m going to quote US here because they have Jamie Lynn’s original caption. The slideshow is below.

“I don’t own a condo, and I can assure you that no one has ever bought me a place at the beach, because I prefer my beach vacations’s [sic] at the Ritz anyway🌊,” [Jamie Lynn Spears], 30, captioned a series of Instagram pics on Monday, July 26, disabling comments on the post. “Simple FACTS. Y’all need to stop reachin’🤍🤍.”

Jamie Lynn documented her stay at the swanky hotel with husband Jamie Watson, including a personalized note from the staff and gift baskets in their room. “Thankful to get this time with my family in between our busy work and practice schedules with the kids lol,” she wrote.

[Jamie Lynn] shares 3-year-old daughter Ivey with Watson, 39, whom she wed in 2014. She is also the mother of 13-year-old daughter Maddie with ex-fiancé Casey Aldridge. In her post, Jamie Lynn blurred out her children’s faces.

Earlier this month, The Sun reported that [Britney], 39, allegedly bought a vacation home frequented by Jamie Lynn and her family in Destin, Florida, which has an estimated worth of more than $1 million. [Jamie Lynn] has mentioned the condo several times in the past, telling CMT News in 2016 that she felt “pretty blessed” to have the beachside property as a place to work on her music and relax.

“I host everyone at our condo. … It can sleep about 10 people,” she said at the time. “We all have breakfast together, I plan a big dinner, and we have a space at the beach. And when we write, there’s no pressure and no timeline, so the songs just kind of fall out. It’s hard to call that work.”

[From US Magazine]

Jamie Lynn should have just kept her mouth shut and kept her family photos to herself. The more she posts, the more she seems like one of the people Britney referred to when she said her support system hurt her deeply. Also Jamie Lynn’s husband, also named Jamie, was spied looking at Britney’s Instagram in this photo Jamie Lynn posted, that’s below. You can read more about that here. It’s the post in between the two of Britney’s boobs. Did they set this up? I bet they did. She’s a piece of work. You would think she could pick up the junk in the background before taking photos for Instagram.


Britney’s new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, has filed a motion to request that her father be removed as conservator. They’re asking that an accountant named Jason Rubin take over as the estate conservator. The court documents state that Britney’s net worth is “shockingly low” and accuse her father, Jamie, of “dissipating” her fortune while personally profiting from it. You can learn more about that here.

  1. I just can't says:

    This girl tries so hard to be so extra yet somehow falls short every single time.

  2. C-Shell says:

    Jeez, she’s just trashy. I hate that all these grifters have sucked Britney dry all these years.

  3. Libellule says:

    Even if Britney’s estate doesn’t pay for the condo, they probably paid for the Ritz. I mean are Jamie Lynn and her husband rich enough on their own to pay for that? It doesn’t seem likely but maybe I am missing something

    • Agirlandherdog says:

      I don’t think you’re missing anything. She really didn’t think this one through.

    • Snazzy says:

      Here’s hoping Britney can cut them all off soon

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I believe Brit bought the condo long before the conservatorship was put in place – apparently she used to go there all the time but hasn’t in the past 13 years. Seems like the family stopped her from going and took it to use for themselves.

  4. D says:

    How would she have the money for a suite at the Ritz Carlton?

    • Haylie says:

      Exactly. Those Zoey 101 checks don’t stretch that far and she definitely doesn’t have Nick Cannon’s hustle.

      Britney is probably paying for that Ritz suite, whether she knows it or not.

      • lucy2 says:

        I think she’s on a Netflix show, but I’d still be willing to bet Britney’s paying.

      • osito says:

        @lucy2 — She is, but it was a pretty minor role, so I don’t see those checks covering very much. It was my impression that she was pretty big as a child star so I can’t pretend to know her bank account, but it would make sense to me if her income was *more than* supplemented by Brit’s exploitation.

    • Jayna says:

      She’s probably being comped for it by the hotel for posting about it on her Instagram page, or a reduced price.

  5. Hannah says:

    So tacky

  6. MarineTheMachine says:

    What a great support system… Showing off your Ritz vacation while you sister admits the abuse and oppression she’s been dealing with. Anyway, receipts from her Florida condo appreciation are all over so no one is asking for clarification 🧐 No empathy from or for that one.

  7. Jais says:

    So she’s staying at the ritz but she could’ve stayed at the destin condo that Britney’s money paid for? The one she usually stays at but for some reason isn’t now? This is gross.

  8. Merricat says:

    I hope all the people who’ve taken advantage of Britney are cut off without another dime.

  9. milliemollie says:

    They’re both named Jamie?!

    She’s also getting her life financed by Britney. Nothing she says or posts will convince me otherwise.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Same here. What a bunch of effing parasites. Does anyone know where Britney’s mum is in all this?

      • Sid says:

        Living in the huge multi-million dollar estate that Britney built for her in Louisiana. And I imagine Britney’s money is paying the upkeep and expenses of said estate since Lynne Spears doesn’t work.

    • HeyJude says:

      Oh, it’s worse than that! Her and Britney’s dad’s name is Jamie too, in addition to the husband being named Jamie. All 3 Jamies seem to like to bilk and turn a blind eye to Britney.

      It’s so gross I feel like I need to shower after just typing it out.

  10. greenmonster says:

    Showing off your happy family vacation after everything that came to light… that is messed up. One could even assume JL wants to hurt her sister. Keep the family (vacation) photos to yourself – some of them aren’t even that good to begin with. Going through her Instagram, JL comes across like a 30 yo teenager… I wonder if she secretly hates Britney: she always lived in her shadow, she only has had some sort of career because of Britney, people are only interested in her because of Britney. But instead of going into therapy and dealing with the short comings of her awful parents, she directs her anger towards her sister.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Jealousy is a hella drug and she has it in spade – always has. She and her husband def have their hand in the cookie jar as no way either of them earn the kinda money to give them the lifestyle they have been living for years.

      JL’s blatant disregard and disdain for her sister is apparent every time she opens her mouth or posts sh|t on SM. She is not happy that Britney might be free from Daddy’s control as there WILL be a forensic audit of the estate when Jamie is forced out and he will be – Brit’s new lawyer has a reputation and he is going after Jamie all guns blazing. Its tell that his lawyers have yet to reply to the filing of media reports – they know Daddy is on the way out.

      • Golly Gee says:

        Jason Rubin, the accountant they want to take over the conservatorship, is highly sought after for his forensic accounting skills. Britney‘s lawyer argued to the judge that if Britney was capable of choosing her own lawyer, she should also be considered capable of choosing a new conservator. Let the games begin.

      • Sid says:

        It is sad because I remember the way Britney used to dote on this girl. I recall one time years ago, maybe during the “Oops I Did It Again” era, Britney hired a tutor so that Jamie Lynne could spend some weeks with her on tour. She said that she wanted Jamie Lynn with her because she felt like she was missing out on spending time with her and watching her grow up. And now this is how things end up.

      • Meg says:

        Yes i remember jamie Lynn releasing her first single on country radio she performed live somewhere and got a luke warm response from the crowd and the pissed off look on her face! I think she grew up at britneys shows and just took for granted this is how careers go, not that britney was abnormally popular right out the gate with her first single. I wonder if jamie Lynn thinks shes entitled to this

      • whatWHAT? says:

        “I wonder if jamie Lynn thinks shes entitled to this”

        yup, just like the younger Lohan and Cyrus sisters.

      • The Recluse says:

        I was wondering how JL and her husband could afford a suite at the Ritz if he isn’t the one with money and she doesn’t have near as much as her older sister. Parasites basically.

  11. Lizzie says:

    Is there a Ritz Carlton in Destin? I think that is a vacation in Sarasota or Naples.

    • Joanna says:

      No I live in the area. Not Destin but Fort Walton Beach. No Ritz Carlton in the area

      • waitwhat says:

        I was gonna say…that room does not look like a Ritz-Carlton room. But I love the placement of the silver Ritz-Carlton bag to PROVE it’s a Ritz. She probably bought a fridge magnet there.

  12. dina says:

    Ugh. She is the worst

  13. Haylie says:

    Britney’s whole family – vultures!

  14. Joanna says:

    Um I live outside Destin FL and there’s no Ritz Carlton here. Anyone know the name of Britney’s condo complex? Lots of people have 2nd homes so the real estate market is real tight. It’s hard for locals to buy a home. Between nearby bases and people buying condos for rentals, it’s next to impossible to buy a place here unless you can afford at lease mid 200k.

    • Mandy says:

      It’s downtown near Jade East. It’s not a complex, only two buildings. They each have two condos per floor. And they are non rental buildings. My grandparents used to live there.

  15. Mich says:

    I don’t know much about Jamie Lynn but, from what she has been posting over the last month or so, she seems extremely unpleasant.

    That recent filing to oust Dad Spears is 127 pages long! Rosengart isn’t playing. With each new statement, article, and filing, we get a clearer picture of just how much control that jackass exercised over every bit of her life. It is so disturbing that the court allowed this to go on for so long and in such a deeply inhumane way.

  16. tempest prognosticator says:

    These people are disturbing. The whole damn family.

  17. lunchcoma says:

    Yikes. I had been giving her the benefit of the doubt because she grew up in the same toxic family as Britney, but everything about this screams that she’s one of the many people leeching off Britney while paying no attention to her misery.

    What’s up with that bathtub pic, anyway? It’s super tacky, and I have no clue why anyone would share it on social media.

    • greenmonster says:

      Or the one with her husband on the phone? It just looks messy and tacky. No smile, no happiness… why would anyone post these pictures?

      • lunchcoma says:

        Yes! That one too! What are these pictures supposed to be OF? They don’t show off how swanky the hotel room is, no one’s actually doing anything worth documenting, there’s not a kid or a pet being cute, and it’s not even like that second one does a good job of showing off Jamie Lynn in her bikini.

    • tealily says:

      Same. I’ve always had a soft spot for Jamie Lynn (remember when she broke up a fight at the Pita Pit?), and her life as a child star could have messed anyone up, but this is not a good look.

    • Meghan says:

      That’s what I was thinking! And she doesn’t look happy in any of the pictures.

      And my house is a hot mess but if I’m taking a pic of me or my kid, I clean up in the area I’m taking the pic. I might not notice it until after I take the first pic but yeah, clean up your clothes hanging on the lampshade ma’am.

    • Chaine says:

      Right? The RBF, the gross straddled legs, the yellow bath water, what a tacky post. And shy are so many people in this family named Jamie? Is it a Louisiana thing?

      I hope Britney kicks all of these parasites out of her properties and sues them.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        And their brother’s middle name is James.

      • Cee says:

        Lynne became pregnant with Jamie Lynn reportedly after Jamie had a vasectomy done. He demanded a paternity test. Once the test proved it was his child, they named the baby Jamie Lynn to symbolize it came from both of them.
        And thus is how this narcissistic a-hole was named.

      • lunchcoma says:

        Yikes, Cee, I knew that the Spears family was a mess since way back when, but that’s even messier than I would have guessed. That seems like the kind of story you don’t tell anyone about your family, let alone the entire world.

      • Golly Gee says:

        “ why are so many people in this family name Jamie?“
        Hi, I’m Larry. This is my brother Darryl and my other brother Darryl.

  18. BlueWater says:

    I have been saying that Britney Spears’ net worth seems shockingly low, $60M while her peers are reaching billionaire status? Makes no sense.

    • Sid says:

      Yes. With all the touring she did and insane amount of endorsement deals at her professional peak, plus the Vegas residencies that number looks off. Some people have tried to say that it’s because Lutfi and others were stealing from her during that 2006-2007 phase and that she was spending recklessly, but that doesn’t quite sound right looking at the amount of money that would have been involved. I say her family has been draining as much of her money as the others did.

  19. Digital Unicorn says:

    Someone is covering her ass as she is freaking out over the recent filings from Brit’s new lawyer – its obvious from those docs that Daddy (and the rest of the family) has been helping themselves to the estate which given ALL her deals, Vegas residency should be worth triple what it is. It’s also interesting that the bulk of the estate is in assets – Daddy has had 13 years to hide the money/evidence of his leeching and it will take a LOOOOONG time to unravel exactly where the money has gone. I think Brit is about to discover that she owns a lot of houses etc.. The house JL lives in is massive – wonder who paid for it 🙂

    The Spears family are trying to bury the bodies – their con is up and Brit will come for them.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Her career, such as it is, is also on the line – if it comes out she was actively involved in the conservatorship (and she was involved at one point) then she can kiss goodbye to her career. There is already an online petition calling for her to be sacked from that Netflix show.

    • Golly Gee says:

      When Britney‘s lawyer spoke before the judge, he talked about the likelihood of Jamie being investigated for malfeasance in the future. He noted that as a conservator, Jamie taking a cut ($ 2.1 million or $2.5 million ) off of Britney‘s Las Vegas stint was a conflict of interest and unethical— at the very least. I’m sure that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Rosengart is gunning for Jamie.

      • The Other Katherine says:

        I can’t even express how happy that makes me, that someone is finally trying to hold that abusive leech to account.

    • WithTheAmerican says:

      100%. These people are so gross I cannot even. No one should be excusing JL, she’s not a child, she has two children of her own.

      She is an ungrateful user of her sister, unscathed by all of the endless pressure put on Britney, out here cluelessly posting her callous greed. F her.

  20. jbyrdku says:


  21. Mina_Esq says:

    Jamie Lynn is trash. I would also describe Brit’s net worth as “shockingly low”, considering that she has been a pop superstar since age 16. The LV residency alone would have netted her her current net worth of $60 million. Where is all the money from years of selling out stadiums and endorsement deals? Her living expenses are less than half a million per year. My gosh, I can’t wait for all of these blood suckers to be taken down.

  22. mellie says:

    The more she posts, the worse she comes across……stfu.

  23. MC2 says:

    All of this is odd but taking a pic of your hubby scrolling through your sister’s ig of her topless pics is GROSS! Maybe they were trying to get in a dig about Britney’s post, but it ended up being a self burn in a very, very uncomfortable way. This is legit sickening. When she’s free, I hope she stays far away from her sister’s husband….

  24. Ashton says:

    I think she’s loving this newfound attention and she is going to do everything she can to profit off of it. She’s also made it obvious she doesn’t give a crap about what her sister is going through. These people are so fake. They can’t even write a genuine or sincere response to anything. I pray everyone involved is cut off forever from Britney’s money. These leeches have been living off Britney for over a decade. You think they cared about her well-being??? No! All they cared about was the money they were getting.

  25. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Props to whoever told her soaking in Gatorade is good for skin.

  26. HaHa says:

    Hanging clothes off the lampshade at the Ritz. Proof money doesn’t buy class. So trashy.

    • Meg says:


    • damejudi says:

      ITA. How difficult is it not to trash a hotel room-not because you’re acting like a rock star, but because you’re a slob. Use the closets, use the dressers.


  27. BnlurNforever says:

    I think the conservatorship was initially good for Britney because she was obviously in a bad place and needed a lot of help and perhaps her father was well meaning in the beginning, but something changed. Greed is a terrible thing and it changes people and I think being in control of all that money, not to mention having so much control over someone’s life changed the father into something wrong and here we are. I feel so sick whenever I think of all this because how many people is this happening to? People not wealthy enough to be noticed, elderly, disabled. Truly, I hope all will be revealed and those who are guilty are punished.

    • Mich says:

      Given that shortly after the conservatorship began, he started calling her a ‘fat’ ‘whore ‘bad mother’ and screaming that he ‘was Britney Spears now’, I not sure his heart was ever in the right place.

  28. detritus says:

    Jamie looks like one of those rude ‘after meth’ photos.

    Not because of her skin or anything, it’s the facial expression?

    • SofiasSideEye says:

      I think it is the facial expression. Jamie is out here giving us zombie realness.

  29. Mimi says:

    Ugh I can’t wait for Britney to cut all these losers off

  30. Green Desert says:

    Oh man, kudos to Kaiser or whoever chose the closeup of that header photo. Yikes. 😀 Also, this woman is a mother to a teenage daughter. Ugh.

    I have assumed Britney includes her sister when she talks about her horrible family. She often calls out her dad because he’s the worst, but she never says “my family is terrible except for my sister” or whatever.

    There will be books written, shows/movies made about the Spears family (or based on them) and what they did to Britney, and how they benefitted. They saw an opportunity when she was struggling 13 years ago and instead of getting her real help, they took advantage like the grifters they are. I think it’s clear by now that regardless of whether Britney ever even needed a conservatorship, it’s long just been a way to abuse her. She seems like a sweet person but also very naive, and they also took advantage of that naivete. Gah, this whole thing is disgusting. I hope she is able to cut these leeches off as soon as possible.

  31. Cait says:

    Nope ! Nickelodeon didn’t pay Ritz money unless the Spears invested very well. Whatever it is it’s on Brittany’s dime.

  32. Lunasf17 says:

    Lol. 20 bucks says she got backlash for being at the condo and her manager told got the Ritz to comp a free room in exchange for her doing free Instagram publicity.

  33. J ferber says:

    Jamie Lynn, 30, looks exactly like Priscilla Presley looks right now.

  34. lena horne says:

    Im not a Brittany fan but, This is disgusting of her family to exploit her this way.
    I hope she gets what she wants. She has been around forever,and at this point in her life, she deserves some happiness. I hope if she gets rid of the conservancy, that she still will feel safe and will probably have to do some type of therapy for not having any freedom for 13 years.

  35. Justwastingtime says:

    Her net worth really seemed strange to me. Vegas residencies are hugely lucrative and they have her on a budget.. big red flags.

  36. Parker says:

    Why does her bath water look like Mountain Dew?

  37. HeyJude says:

    Nothing says “I’m so not a money-grubbing clout chaser” like responding to people that you only do your beach vacations at The Ritz.

  38. Malina says:

    I bet Jamie the husband was just looking at them boob pics and then Jamie Lynn comes over and he suddenly pretends to be all engrossed in the pic between xD

  39. Coffeeisgood says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Britney’s estate was becoming low on cash. Sounds like the whole family was being pay rolled. Poor Brit. Gonna be really happy for her once this is all over.
