“Psssssss also great news… I'm thinking of releasing a book next year but I'm having issues coming up with a title so maybe my fans could help !!!!

“Option #1 … ‘S**t, I really don't know’ Option #2…’I really care what people think,’” the Toxic hitmaker teased.

Britney’s followers were delighted with her cheeky post, and took to the comments to heap praise on her for calling out Jamie Lynn.

“Lmaooo I’m loving this shade,” one wrote, as another added: “The things my sister shouldn’t have said.”

“She came for Jamie Lynn lmfaoooooooooooooo,” read one, as a fourth fan chimed in: “Queen of shading your sister.”

This isn’t the first time Britney has publicly criticised her sister, and in July, the pop star said she was hurt when “my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes”, an apparent reference to Jamie Lynn’s bizarre tribute performance at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards.

She also took to Instagram to share her thoughts in another lengthy post, and said she had felt betrayed by her loved ones during the controversial conservatorship, which was helmed by father Jamie Spears.

“There's nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support,” Britney fired.

Her fans speculated she was directing her frustration at sister Jamie Lynn, as she added: “How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE…did you put your hand out when I was drowning???? Again…NO.”

Jamie Lynn’s book will focus on “sharing my truth the proper way”, and the actress said she was inspired to write a memoir after her daughter Maddie’s accident in 2017.

“I owe it to myself, my younger self, and to my daughters to be an example that you should never edit yourself or your truth to please anyone else,” she stated.
