“He’s barbaric. Who gets to do that to someone? She was just manipulated and used. And he wants to say he protected her?” Leigh Ann said. “No. He caged her! He caged her.”
She continued, “He swooped in at the perfect moment, when she was at her most vulnerable, to take control. I don’t think he was the hero. I think that he manipulated the situation, and that he has benefited from this situation for [over] a decade.”
Leigh Ann also talked about why the other members of the Spears family didn’t step in to stop what was happening.
“I don’t know what anyone could’ve done,” she said. “I do know this: I know that if Lynne [Britney’s mom] could’ve done anything, she would’ve.”
Said Leigh Ann of her niece, “She wants away from Jamie, she wants to be free, she wants to get married, she wants to have kids. I don’t know if [Jamie] can be prosecuted for anything, but he needs to be held accountable.”
