Lynne Spears, mother of pop superstar Britney Spears, responded to claims she made about her family in her new memoir.
On Thursday, Lynne Spears, 68, took to her Instagram page to dispute her daughter’s claims made in her best-selling memoir “The Woman in Me.” Britney Spears claimed her parents got rid of many of her “prized possessions” stored at her mother’s home while she was in treatment for mental health in 2019, according to People.
The items included “her most beloved childhood toys,” including Madame Alexander dolls and “years’ worth of her writing and original poetry,” per the outlet.
“[Britney Spears] I’m not sure who told you I got rid of your dolls and journals but I would never do that! That would be cruel because I know how much they mean to you,” Lynne Spears wrote in the caption of various photos showing the alleged items.

She added, “They are special to me too because of the years we spent collecting them. Of course I still have your things, and I am happy to send them to you if you’d like me to.”
“Please let me know and know how much I love you!” Lynne Spears concluded.
According to People, in her memoir, Britney Spears, 41, emphasized how “important” the roughly 15 Madame Alexander dolls were to her as her family “didn’t have any money” growing up. The dolls are modeled after “fictional characters or historical figures — like Scarlet O’Hara or Queen Elizabeth,” and characters from “Little Women.”
She also alleged her family forced her into the medical facility where she received treatment and found the specified items missing once she returned home.
“When I saw the empty shelves, I felt an overwhelming sadness,” she wrote. “And my family had thrown them in the trash, just like they’d thrown me away.”
