Jamie Lynn opened up about her relationship with her sister on I’m A Celeb, announcing they have healed their rift
Biological sisters Britney and Jamie Lynn’s relationship appears to have changed drastically over the years.
Britney and Jamie Lynn, who were both child stars, made many public appearances together when they were younger, attending awards shows and other events, and appeared to have a strong bond.
However, they developed a sour relationship as Britney once called out her sister for singing remixes to her songs at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards in an Instagram post. The post read: “I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes !!!!!”
Britney also hit out at her younger sibling for writing a tell-all book about growing up with the singer while she was in court fighting for her freedom.
In November 2023, Jamie Lynn revealed how she feels about her superstar sibling on the ITV show, I’m a Celebrity. She revealed the pair are back on good terms.
First Dates’ Fred Sirieix wanted to learn more about his co-star’s upbringing and quizzed her as she lounged in her hammock.
He asked: “So where do you live?”
Jamie Lynn replied: “I live in the country. We have like 180 acres.”
Diving straight in with the question everyone wanted, Fred replied: “Wow, like a ranch? Your sister is obviously a superstar, you’re a superstar, why? How come the both of you, what made it?”
Jamie Lynn replied: “I think every family fights and has their stuff but I talked to her before I came here and we love each other.”
Fred clarified his question saying: “But the both of you became so famous and so big…”
Jamie Lynn said: “Oh, I always say this. My mumma, not in a cocky way at all, my mum literally believed we were the best in the world. I think we grew up, all we ever did was sing and dance, that was our whole household, that’s how we were.
“We auditioned for a show called ‘All That’ and that’s when I was on ‘All That’ for three years before I did Zoey . It was very successful. After I finished Zoey, I had my love of my life, what I thought, I decided to keep the baby. I was 16. The whole world was like, ‘You’re a s**t, you’re horrible your life is over…’”
Fred asked: “Oh really? You felt it?”
Jamie Lynn said: “Oh yeah. Because I got pregnant young and I was on a kids’ show.”
Fred asked: “Your parents were good with you?”
Jamie Lynn said: “Yeah, they had a lot going on. I just think they were sad I was in that situation but also it’s your baby having a baby. I had to go hide away for a long time because they were relentless.”
Jamie Lynn and older sister Britney have had a strained relationship in recent years.
In 2018 Jamie Lynn became a partial trustee of Britney’s estate meaning she had a degree of control over the singer’s assets.
