Britney Spears and sister Jamie Lynn's public blame game, plus more celebrity family feuds

Wonderwall Logo By Jessica Wedemeyer of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 26: Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at some of Hollywood's most notorious family feuds, starting with the most recent squabble between the Spears sisters. Things kicked off back in 2017 when Jamie Lynn Spears performed some of Britney Spears' biggest hits during the Radio Disney Music Awards that April. In July 2021, Britney revealed she was not happy about that performance, as she was not allowed to perform remixes of her own songs at the time yet Jamie Lynn was. Rumblings of a rift continued -- with plenty of fan ire -- as it became clear Britney's conservatorship was not in her best interest. Many questioned Jamie Lynn's apparent decision to stand idly by. There were also questions about whether or not she benefited directly from the conservatorship by serving as a trustee. The feud came to a head when Jamie Lynn released her memoir, "Things I Should Have Said," in January 2022, prompting Britney to unfollow her little sister on Instagram. Britney also spoke out against a claim in the book alleging she once terrified Jamie Lynn by locking them in a room together while wielding a knife. "Please stop with these crazy lies for the Hollywood books," Britney said before accusing her sister of being a "scum person." A few days later, she walked back her anger, noting that she loves her sister "unconditionally." Jamie Lynn then addressed their relationship in a two-part interview on the "Call Her Daddy" podcast. Britney wasn't thrilled with the first portion, taking to Instagram to bite back at Jamie Lynn's claims about her breakup with Justin Timberlake and other family issues and writing a lengthy post in which she said she should have "slapped" Jamie Lynn and their mother, Lynne Spears, across their "f****** faces." (She also issued a cease-and-desist letter, which her lawyer shared with multiple media outlets, demanding Jamie Lynn stop speaking publicly about her.) Throughout the episodes, Jamie Lynn seemed to harbor no ill will toward her sister. In fact, she actually cleared her name regarding some of the allegations that have surrounded her for years pertaining to her role in Britney's conservatorship. The second part of the "Call Her Daddy" interview saw Jamie Lynn sharing text messages and proof that she attempted to help her sister get out of the conservatorship more than a year ago. Jamie Lynn also shared concerns that Britney's former lawyer had not been acting in her best interest.Now keep reading for more of the biggest Hollywood family feuds...
