Raised in Louisiana, Britney and Jamie Lynn were close when they were growing up, despite their nine year age gap.
However relations between the Spears sisters turned sour when Britney was placed under a conservatorship by her father Jamie Spears in 2008.
Britney claimed that her sister did not help her during this time and chose instead to side with her father as he controlled her assets.

Britney discussed the dissolution of their friendship in her memoir The Woman in Me, which was released earlier this year.
The pop icon said: "As I was fighting the conservatorship and receiving a lot of press attention, she was writing a book capitalising on it. She rushed out salacious stories about me, many of them hurtful and outrageous. I was really let down.
"Shouldn’t sisters be able to confess their fears or vulnerabilities to each other without that later being used as evidence of instability?"
