Britney Spears refuses to attend Jamie Lynn’s wedding

Britney SpearsTroubled Britney Spears is refusing to attend her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears’ wedding - as payback for the way she announced her shock teen pregnancy last year, it has been claimed.

Jamie Lynn - along with her mom, Lynne - announced the pregnancy late last year, in US magazine Star, in a deal widely reported to have been worth at least $1m.

Jamie Lynn, 16, is reportedly planning to marry her longterm beau Casey Aldridge before her baby is born in June.

Sources say Jamie Lynn asked Britney to be the maid of honor at her ceremony - but the Toxic star shot her down, telling her “hell would freeze over” before she would attend the wedding.

“When Jamie Lynn asked her, Britney laughed sarcastically down the phone. She told her hell would freeze over before she’d stand as her maid of honor then hung up on her,” said a source close to the Spears family.

Britney was furious that she found out about her sister’s pregnancy via the press - and was devastated that she was amongst the last to know.

Adds the source: “Britney had it out with her sister at the time, she’s been simmering with resentment ever since.

“She believes that Jamie Lynn has broken the bond the two have always shared - and is using Britney’s fame to make money.

“Britney told a pal: ‘I’m devastated. Jamie Lynn’s stabbed me in the back. I’ll never trust her again. She’ll regret doing this to me.’

“Now [by not attending Jamie’s wedding] she has found the perfect way to hit back.”

Zoey 101 star Jamie is said to be devastated by her older sister’s behavior - and had hoped the troubled singer had forgiven her, but, according to sources, it’ll take a long time for Britney to get over the way her younger sister had treated her.

“All she wants to do is live off my fame,” Britney reportedly confided to a close pal. “She just wants her famous sister at her wedding to show off to her friends. She doesn’t care about me.”

Jamie Lynn has been left in tears over her sister’s decision not to attend her big day, but friends are hoping Britney will change her mind.

Meanwhile, a court ruled earlier this week that Britney’s dad, Jamie Spears, can pay himself $2,500 a month from the singer’s bank accounts.

Jamie, who has been handling the Toxic singer’s affairs since a court ruled he should be a co-conservator, will be able to pay himself the money every month.

A judge has also agreed that Britney should pay for a car ‘of an appropriate size’ and has given the go-head for her dad to lease a vehicle.

Documents released by the court also reveal that the conservatorship - Jamie and attorney Andrew Wallet - to pay a $5,000 retainer to one of Britney’s doctors Stephen Marmer MD and Britney’s court appointed attorney his fee of $58,800.

The papers read: “The temporary conservators have the power to lease one vehicle of an appropriate size.

“Mr Spears is to receive compensation of $2,500 per week on accounting beginning 3/3/08 without prejudice.

“Mr Ingham to receive compensation of $58,800 on account, without prejudice.

“It is so ordered.”
