Britney Spears tells Jamie Lynn she's hit a 'new low' as she denies knife claims

By Zoe Delaney

Britney Spears has publicly spoke out regarding Jamie Lynn Spears' latest accusations - pleading with her little sister to stop the "crazy lies".

Taking to Twitter for the second time in 24 hours, Britney, 40 addressed her sibling's recent claims that she once "locked them in a room with a knife" on the social media site on Friday night.

The Grammy award-winning singer denied the revelations made during Jamie Lynn's Nightline interview to promote her memoir - telling her younger sister she had stooped "to a whole new level of low" in her defensive Twitter post.

"Jamie Lynn ... congrats babe," the mum-of-two began her notes app statement with on Friday evening.

"You've stooped to a whole new level of low... I've never been around you ever with a knife or would I ever think to do such!

"The only knife I ever saw you with at home was cutting the biggest piece of squash I ever saw in my life and it was way too big for me to cut."

Britney - who is mentioned 197 times in Jamie Lynn's 240 page memoir - then directly asks her little sister to refrain from discussing her as she promotes her new book.

"So please, please stop with these crazy lies for the Hollywood books. Now and only now I do know only a scum person would make up such things about someone," the mum-of-two continued in her scathing Twitter post.

"I'm actually very confused about you making that up because it's honestly not like you at all! Around the kids? Jamie Lynn, seriously? Come on!"

The recently engaged star concluded with: "Congrats on introducing your older sister the concept of getting low... lower... lowest because you win on that one, babe!"

Britney's latest Twitter statement comes less than 24 hours after the newly-freed pop icon slammed her family for 'ruining her dreams ' - in particular her book-promoting sister.

"My sister said was that my behaviour was out of control," the Gimmie More singer wrote within Thursday's lengthy social media post.

"She was never around me much 15 years ago at that time… so why are then even talking about that unless she wants to sell a book at my expense ??? REALLY ???"

Jamie Lynn - who is best known for her role on Zoey 101 back in 2005 - has been accused of cashing in on her sister's fame with her tell-all memoir, Things I Should Have Said.

The youngest child of Lynn and Jamie Spears has denied her book is about her famous big sister - explaining that "some of [her] experiences" over the years happen to feature Britney.

Last year, Jamie Lynn, 30, faced a backlash, as her memoir's original title was slammed for being a blatant reference to one of sister Britney's biggest hits.

Titled I Must Confess: Family, Fame, and Figuring it Out, American bookseller Barnes & Noble listed the then-unreleased book on their website back in July 2020 - claiming the mum-of-two's intimate memoir would "reveal the details behind Jamie Lynn’s highest and lowest moments."

The pre-order listing was inundated with reviews from Britney fans accusing Jamie Lynn of 'cashing in' on her sister's 1998 debut hit single, ...Baby One More Time.

The memoir is now scheduled for release on 18 January 2022 and is titled, Things I Should Have Said.
