Britney and Jamie Lynn’s strained relationship became public last year as the “Toxic” singer sought to break free from her tutelage. In Britney’s legal fight, the pop star called out her family members both in court and on social media for failing to help her free herself from the 13-year-old court order. Specifically, Britney accused her and Jamie Lynn’s father, James P. Spears, of “abuse of conservation”. She also claimed that her family had profited from her fortune.
Britney kicked off 2022 by purging many of her Instagram followers, including her famous sister.
