Entertainment Tonight reports that Spears concluded the post with, “I wish you would take a lie detector test so all these masses of people see you’re lying through your teeth about me… You are scum, Jamie Lynn.”

Jamie Lynn Spears gave an interview about her sister

Since Britney’s conservatorship ended, tensions have mounted between Britney and Jamie Lynn. Days before Things I Should Have Said was released, Jamie Lynn appeared on ABC News to discuss the memoir.

During the interview on ABC News, Jamie Lynn described a fight between her and Britney from the beginning of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“She cursed at me, so I just walked out of the room,” Jamie Lynn said on ABC News. “I was like, ‘We’re just all family under one roof. I’m not trying to argue.’ And when I tried to remove myself from the situation, that’s when I guess she just got really angry.”

Jamie Lynn continued, “And my oldest daughter tried to mediate the situation. I hated that. Like, that’s not what you’re supposed to do, you’re 12.”
