Britney Spears expresses dismay on Twitter over Jamie Lynn's latest interview: 'She never had to work for anything'
American pop sensation Britney Spears recently addressed her sister Jamie Lynn Spears-Watson's tell-all interview with Good Morning America, and she was not happy.
On Jan. 14, Spears posted a screenshot of her lengthy message on Twitter, first detailing how her security guard refused to fetch her pain medication as she suffered through a 40-degree Celsius fever and a splitting headache the night before.
The singer then mentioned in the tweet about receiving word on Spears-Watson guesting on the American morning news show to promote her new memoir Things I Should Have Said, where her interview delved into their relationship as siblings.
Spears went on to say there were two things "that did bother me" about the interview. First was how Spears-Watson was never around for most of the past 15 years, and so had little reason to label her behavior as “out of control.”
She wrote: "My sister said was that my behavior 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?"
In addition, the Oops!... I Did It Again singer touched on her sister’s confusion over Spears being hurt by the younger Spears’ Radio Disney Music Awards performance in 2017. The 40-year-old performer insinuated that her younger sister has had her successes handed to her over the years.
“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 !!!”
Spears added that she was "always the bigger person" even though her family "got to DO IT and PLAY ME" as she "sat there and took it."

Spears also expressed that she "was never given back what [she] wants” and that her family made her out to be “the crazy one," ending the screen capped message saying her lesson from it all was not to trust people.
The former Zoey 101 star has recently responded on Instagram how Spears’ posts on social media do not reflect their private conversations and texts.
“It's become exhausting when conversations, and texts we have in private do not match what you post on social media. I know you’re going through a lot and I never want to diminish that, but I also can’t diminish myself.”
Spears-Watson continued to say her book, to be released on Jan. 18, is not about her sister as she has put in work for her own career “in spite of just being someone’s little sister.”
The younger Spears closes her Instagram post with, ”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.”
Spears has yet to publicly comment on her sister’s latest statement.
