Britney Spears Has Harsh New Words For Jamie Lynn Over Her Newly Released Book

Ever since former "Zoey 101" star Jamie Lynn Spears spent a substantial chunk of her January hour-long interview on "Good Morning America" discussing the conservatorship of her older sister, pop icon Britney Spears, it seems the relationship between the two has continued to fracture. Though Jamie Lynn agreed to appear on "GMA" to promote her newly published memoir, "Things I Should Have Said," it was almost inevitable the conversation would end up on the subject of Britney, as her 13-year conservatorship, overseen by their father Jamie had only ended months prior

After the segment aired in mid-January, Jamie Lynn's on-air assertions about her older sibling — which included claims that Jamie Lynn had been working behind the curtain to end the conservatorship — were enough to cause Britney to boycott watching the exclusive at the time. Now, nearly two weeks after Jamie Lynn's "GMA" appearance, Britney published a new post to Instagram in reaction to another interview — one that might be the social media equivalent of singing her sister a rendition of "If You Seek Amy."

Britney Spears pulled no punches in her Instagram post about Jamie Lynn

In her January 28 Instagram post, Britney Spears appeared to take aim at her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, for the timing of not only her new memoir's publicity tour, but the fact that the memoir itself was released only two months after her 13-year conservatorship ended. As Page Six noted in their coverage, Britney's caption, which accompanied a clip of the hosts of the daytime talk show "The Real" blasting the book, purportedly referenced an earlier Insta post by Jamie Lynn, in which she called herself a "national best-selling author." 

"National best seller????" wrote Britney, seemingly alluding to Jamie Lynn's new self-designation. "The timing of your book was unbelievable Jamie Lynn ... especially knowing the whole world had no clue what was really done to me." Britney then lashed out against her sister for telling others that she "didn't know" about the conditions of her conservatorship, a claim which Britney had testified against previously in open court, according to BuzzFeed. (According to Britney, restrictions imposed upon her ranged from tight reins on her social life and little to no control of her finances, to being forced to take medication she was not comfortable taking.) 

It remains to be seen whether Jamie Lynn will publicly respond to Britney's call out, but as far as one can tell, it doesn't seem that the rift between these siblings will be on the mend anytime soon.
