Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn shares a quote about people who cannot accept evidence that works against their ‘core beliefs’

Britney Spears‘ sister Jamie Lynn Spears took to Instagram on Sunday evening to share a poignant quote about cognitive dissonance. 

The actress, 31, who’s been in an ongoing feud with her pop star sister, 40, posted a Frantz Fanon quote on her Stories about people who cannot accept evidence that works against their ‘core beliefs.’ 

‘Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with solid evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted,’ the quote began.

‘It would create a feeling that is very uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.’ 

Cognitive dissonance is defined as a ‘psychological conflict resulting from incongruous beliefs and attitudes held simultaneously’ by Merriam-Webster dictionary. 

Jamie did not specify whether the quote was meant for anyone in particular.

Jamie has a fraught relationship with older sister Britney, who has accused her of telling ‘crazy lies’ in a recent memoir.

It comes after Britney has been airing grievances against her family in the past months, and most recently called Jamie out for reportedly seeing their father during Covid lockdowns and building a house in Louisiana. 

In one now-deleted post, the pop icon shared a photo of her sister with their father Jamie, 70, as proof that she had defied Covid-19 lockdowns, though the picture appears to have been snapped back in 2019.

She also complained about her life being blasted while Jamie was able to retain her privacy: ‘How come not one person knows my sister is building a huge home in Louisiana??? How come their livers aren’t exposed??? Mine has been exposed in press with the documentaries as a joke!!!’  

The photos included in her deleted post show Jamie Lynn walking through a parking garage with their father, along with a mirror selfie that Jamie Lynn took.

However, the photo from the garage has been dated to 2019, prior to any lockdowns Britney might have experienced, and the selfie was allegedly taken in Britney’s guest room while Jamie Lynn stayed with her on her 2019 trip, sources told TMZ.

The sources claimed that Jamie Lynn was visiting Los Angeles to have meeting with streaming services as she tried to get back to work following the birth of her second daughter Ivey in 2018.

The sources added that Jamie Lynn hoped Britney would exclude her from future posts, and they claimed that the singer lied about her sister in hopes of tarnishing her reputation.

They also claimed that Jamie Lynn and her husband had used their own money to build their Louisiana home.
