Britney Spears has hit out at sister Jamie Lynn Spears after she appeared on Good Morning America to discuss their relationship and her new book.
Jamie Lynn, 30, had appeared on Good Morning America to discuss her memoir, Things I Should Have Said, in which she discussed her recent rift with Britney, 40.
In the interview, Jamie Lynn claimed that she had tried to help Britney during her conservatorship and had ‘only ever done right by her’ during that time.
Britney took to Twitter to address the TV appearance, sharing a lengthy post telling fans that she watched it while feeling unwell with a fever.
She told her followers: ‘The 2 things that did bother me that my sister said was that my behaviour was out of control. She was never around me much 15 years ago at that time… so why are they even talking about that unless she wants to sell a book at my expense ??? REALLY???’
Britney had also previously claimed she was blocked from performing remixes of her own songs while Jamie Lynn was allowed to take them on, another issue addressed in the interview.
Explaining her upset about this, Britney added: ‘I know it may sound like a silly thing to most people but I wrote a lot of my songs and my sister was the baby. She never had to work for anything. Everything was always given to her!!!!
‘If you were me, you might understand asking for 13 years for remixes to go into a small venue show and on tours!!!!
’13 years later they assign me as the MOTHER OF ALL… heart of gold … Britney sitting there seeing a 15 minute performance of everything I have ever wanted… But see, I always was the bigger person.
‘They all got to DO IT and PLAY ME and I always sat there and took it,’ adding: ‘So yes, they did ruin my dreams.’
Britney alleges that when she confronted Jamie Lynn about it, her younger sister responded: ‘Well, it wasn’t my idea.’
She added: ‘Hope your book does well, Jamie Lynn!!!! I won’t be doing Instagram for awhile. The media, this business has always been extremely hateful to me.
‘I’ve given enough… MORE than enough. I was never given back ever what I want … They say in the Bible “ask and you shall receive” …. Uhhhhh not in my life.’
Following Britney’s post, Jamie Lynn refuted her claims in a statement on Instagram, writing: ‘Last thing I want to be doing is this, but here we are.
‘It’s hard to see these posts, as I know the world also feels. I just wish her well. Brit, I am always here, you know behind the scenes I have always been here.’

She claimed that their exchanges in private ‘don’t match’ what Britney posts on social media but didn’t want to ‘diminish’ her experience all the same.
Jamie Lynn continued: ‘Quite frankly, the things being said are absolutely not the truth, and I have to clarify that, because now it’s getting harder for me to rationalise to my oldest daughter why our family continues to get death threats, as a result of their aunt’s vague and accusatory posts, especially when we know she could tell the truth, and put an end to all of it in one second if she wanted to.’

She added that she wanted to ‘set the record straight’ to ‘protect mine and my family’s well being,’ adding that her book is ‘not about’ Britney specifically.
Jamie Lynn concluded: ‘No matter what comes, I will always love my big sister, and be here for her. It’s time to put an end to the unhealthy chaos that has controlled my life for so long.’
