She also stated how she wanted to remain in her sister's life as her sister and "an aunt to those boys" rather than someone who needed to provide advice on how she should lead her life.

"I don't care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has so many times before."

She even referenced the #FreeBritney trend, that took off years ago and regained momentum following her sister's confession. "But I can assure you I’ve supported my sister long before there was a hashtag, and I'll support her long after. Note that."

The Zoey 101 actress mentioned how proud she was of her sister for using her voice and requesting new counsel, which she says she'd suggested many years ago in person.

Jamie talked about how her bond with her sister remained that of "sisters" and she only wanted her happiness

Britney's statement shocked the world, since it was the first time people had heard her speaking so candidly about the negative effects of her conservatorship.

Pleading the judge to end her conservatorship, she'd said: "I want changes, and I want changes going forward. I deserve changes."

"I just want my life back. And it's been 13 years. And it's enough. It's been a long time since I've owned my money."
