It looks like one of the most controversial elements from Britney Spears' tell-all memoir is starting to be her doll collection.

In her memoir, “The Woman In Me,” the "Oops!... I Did It Again" singer reflected on the “peace” she felt when she decided that she “never wanted to see” her father Jamie Spears, 71, her mother Lynne Spears, 68, her brother Bryan Spears, 46, or her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, 32, ever again.

The decision came when she visited her family during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in Louisiana. Britney had stored several of her belongings at her mother's house when she was admitted to a mental health facility in 2019; however, she noticed that several items, including her beloved Madame Alexander doll collection, which she received as a child, had been “thrown away.”

She noted that several years’ “worth of [her] writing” and “binders” of poetry had been discarded as well, but Lynne took to Instagram on November 9 to insist that she still had all of Britney's old items.

"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. They are special to me too because of the years we spent collecting them," Lynne wrote in the caption. "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!"

A few days later, on Saturday, November 11, Britney finally addressed her mother's comments in an Instagram post that seemed more focused on the time that she met Taylor Swift. At the end of her lengthy caption, Britney tells her mother that it is "really weird" that she attempted to hide her dolls from her and told her that she doesn't want them anymore.

"Ps mom I love you so so much, but there were 3 dolls in the cabinets when I went home 2 years ago … kinda really weird you would take them out and then put them back in … so messed up," Britney wrote. "Nope, I don't want them. Keep it all. I honestly don't care anymore … honestly though."

Lynne Spears Denies That She Has Been Selling Britney's Clothing

In her brief statement, Britney didn't address rumors that her mother had been selling Britney's old costumes and clothing, including her 2011 Femme Fatale white satin jacket. “I would never sell my daughter's things. Get your facts straight @dailymail,” she wrote in the caption amid accusations that she was selling her daughter’s outfits online and at local consignment stores in Louisiana.

A source told the Daily Mail on Thursday that Lynne started selling Britney’s clothing in 2019 at Connie's Jewelry and Gifts in Kentwood, Louisiana, which is owned by the family of Britney’s childhood friend, Cortney Brabham. One insider claimed that Lynne has “easily made thousands of dollars in profit” and that Britney Spears has “no clue” that her mother is selling her items.

One Source Claimed Britney Spears Would Be 'Fuming' If She Knew Her Mother Sold Her Clothes

“When Britney would come home early in her career, she would unload her clothes at her mom's house in Kentwood. This also included things she wore on tours and her personal clothes,” an insider claimed. “She has no clue and would be fuming if she did.”

The source went on to say, “Britney had hundreds of pairs of jeans at one time. She would come back home to Kentwood and just unload all of this stuff with her mom. Lynne held onto everything,” adding that she sold some of Britney’s clothes because she “needed the money to buy Christmas presents for her grandchildren.”
