Jamie Lynn Spears went to the trouble of touring nationally to promote her new book…because she’s not in it for the money…according to sources linked to her.
Our sources say Britney‘s little sister was approached to go on a reading tour, but she was adamant it wasn’t for her.
It’s a change from the way most celebrities do business…they typically travel the country promoting their books, encouraging people to shop and hook up at bookstores.
Sources say Jamie Lynn didn’t write her book, ‘Things I Should Have Said,’ to do murder. Instead, they say she wrote it to address her past, heal from it, and move on.
We’re told “some” of the proceeds will go to a number of charities. They won’t say which charities because Jamie Lynn tried to donate profits from the book to charity last October, but the charity rejected his gesture because of all the backlash. So our sources say Jamie Lynn doesn’t want to name the charities this time around, to avoid a similar outcome.
That said, she will still pocket a portion of the profits, but the sources insist that is not the motivating factor.
As you know, some excerpts are already ripped by Britney… with Jamie Lynn’s older sister on several occasions to attack on social networks.
Britney is shocked by both Jamie Lynn’s ‘Nightline’ interview and a passage in the book where JLS claims Britney locked them both in a room with a knife.
We’re told Jamie Lynn isn’t shocked by Britney’s reaction, as she knows her sister better than anyone and was prepared for such reactions from Britney and others.
Our sources say Jamie Lynn thinks this is her story to tell…and that it’s important to address what she’s been through so she can move on.
While Jamie Lynn has done a few media interviews about the book, we’re told she doesn’t think it’s necessary to go any further with a tour… and just prefers to spend her time with her kids. .
