Britney Spears is making headlines again, but this time instead of taking shots at her family, she is paying tribute to one of them.

On December 2, which is also the popstar’s birthday, she posted a tribute to her estranged sister Jamie Lynn Spears. The posts include two snaps of the younger Spears sister. One pic has Jamie posing for the camera in a kitchen and the other has her holding up a guitar.


“It’s my b-day but you’re my heart so I’m thinking about you,” Spears wrote as a caption. She adds “Congratulations on being so brave, inspiring, and showing guts and glory in your show!!! You ain’t alone … if anybody knows what that feels like … I get it. My baby sister!!! I love you!!!”

The “show” reference is most likely to the new series Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test, which will feature Jamie as well as other Spears family members.

Spears and her sister have been at odds for the better part of a year now. Jamie’s memoir, released in January, did have one less fan in her older sibling. On social media, Spears responded to the book’s release, saying, “Please please stop with these crazy lies for the Hollywood books!!!”

The tribute post to Jamie sparked confusion, concern and anger from many fans. Many supporters now believe that the Instagram post was not composed by Spears. Hashtags calling to “freebritney” could be seen all over Twitter as concerns grew about her well-being. One fan post accused her estranged sister of hacking into Britney’s account. “I can’t explain it but somehow Jamie Lynn hacked Britney Spears Instagram and posted that herself, OFFICER!!”
