Jamie Lynn Spears (pic) is speaking about her estrangement from big sister Britney on the heels of the pop star’s memoir release last month.

The Zoey 101 alum, 32, was asked about the Stronger singer, 42, on this weekend’s episode of the UK reality show, I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here.

“Anything my sister did, I always thought was the best,” said the younger Spears. “When it came to my sister ... if anyone said anything I was ready to go. I was like, ‘Don’t talk about my sister, she’s the best'.”

When asked about the pair’s current dynamic, she simply said, “I love my sister.”

The remarks come after Britney’s explosive memoir, The Woman In Me, hit shelves in late October and featured several stories about the complications and dysfunctions of the Spears family. Britney’s 13-year-long conservatorship, which ended two years ago and had her under the oppressive thumb of dad Jamie, fueled many issues with Jamie Lynn.

In the book, Britney accuses her little sister of having hung her out to dry when the former reached out for help. Britney felt that Jamie Lynn’s own memoir, 2022’s Things I Should Have Said: Family, Fame, And Figuring It Out, was “capitalising” on the singer’s struggles as they played out in the media.

But even with all of the family drama, it seems neither of the Spears women has completely ruled out an eventual reconciliation.

Britney in her memoir noted that Jamie Lynn “will always be my sister, and I love her and her beautiful family.”

The pop princess added that she’s “working to feel more compassion than anger” both toward Jamie Lynn and others who “have wronged” her. - New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
