Jamie Lynn Spears is suing Progressive Insurance.

The legal documents obtained by The Blast state that the couple suffered a loss to their personal property due to a peril covered under their insurance policy.

The celebrity couple alleged that the Atlantic superstorm caused enough damage to their home that they were forced to submit an estimate to fix the damages.

However, they claimed that Progressive Insurance has been refusing to pay for the damages. The court filing stated, "Progressive either negligently or intentionally failed to fairly and promptly adjust the damages suffered by the (couple), thus breaching the terms of the insurance policy and its obligations."

The couple seeks to recover the full value of the loss, all other contract benefits, compensatory benefits, and any other available relief.

Spears and Watson live in Hammond, Louisiana, an area that was significantly impacted by Hurricane Ida.

In 2021, local news reports described the damage in the community, with fallen trees and heavy debris causing significant damage to Southeastern Louisiana University.

Residents at the time also shared their experiences of the storm, with one describing it as "unbelievable" and "very scary."

“The storm was unbelievable, the wind and the rain. I’ve never seen so much wind and rain, it was just blowing so much. Water was from our neighbors’ door all the way up to our door. It was just very scary,” one resident said back in 2021.
