Britney Spears hits back at sister Jamie-Lynn—after she claims the singer put her in danger
The sisters have been using social media to argue with each other publicly
Britney Spears has hit back at her sister, Jamie-Lynn, after she made claims about her during a US chat show interview.
Jamie-Lynn faced criticism last year following Britney's allegations of family abuse, has now claimed that her sister 'scared her' when she locked them in a room with a knife.
However, Britney, who late last year, was freed from a 13-year conservatorship, is claiming her account of events never happened, calling her sister out on social media.

Promoting her memoir, Jamie-Lynn Spears, who grew up in the spotlight with Britney, appeared on the ABC chat show a couple of days ago and spoke about how her sister's behavior was 'erratic', while she also mentioned a scary incident, which involved her sister years ago.
The incident, according to Jamie-Lynn, involved Britney locking both her and her sister in a room, while she held a knife. An angry Britney responded with a statement on Twitter denying it ever happened.
She said, "Jamie Lynn… congrats babe! You’ve stooped to a whole new level of LOW … I’ve never been around you ever with a knife or would I ever even think to do such !!! The only knife I ever saw you with at home was cutting the biggest pieces of squash I ever saw in my life and it was way too big for me to cut.’

Trying to end the social media war Jamie-Lynn went on to respond, “I hate to burst my sister’s bubble, but my book is not about her. I can’t help that I was born a Spears too, and that some of my experiences involve my sister. I’ve worked hard since before I was even a teenager, and I’ve built my career in spite of just being someone’s little sister.”
Her memoir, entitled Things I Should Have Said, will be released next month. However, the title of the book was originally I Must Confess—but fans complained it was too similar to a line from Britney’s Baby One More Time debut single.
This isn't the first time the sisters have been at war - last year Jamie Lynn Spears was criticized for failing to help her older sister after Britney's testimony to end her conservatorship.
