While it is unknown when she actually unfollowed her sibling on the social media site, the entertainment news outlet reports that it was done so ‘recently’.
As of Monday 3 January, Jamie Lynn still follows Britney – her profile showing on the younger sister’s ‘following’ list of 600 accounts.
Britney, who was liberated from her 13-year conservatorship back in November, has previously hit out at Jamie Lynn during her legal battle for freedom.
Criticising her younger sister for performing her songs at a public event in 2017, the 40-year-old wrote on Instagram last July: “I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes!!!!!. My so-called support system hurt me deeply!!!!”
On another occasion, Britney shared a photo of a woman ‘saving her divine feminine sister’, saying: “I suggest if you have a friend that’s been in a house that feels really small for four months … no car … no phone … no door for privacy and they have to work around 10 hours a day 7 days a week and give tons of blood weekly with never a day off… I strongly suggest you go pick up your friend and get them the hell outta there!!!!!”
The post, shared last October, continued: “If you’re like my family who says things like ‘sorry, you’re in a conservatorship’ … probably thinking you’re different so they can f**k with you!!!!
“Thankfully I found an amazing attorney Mathew Rosengart who has helped change my life!!!!”
In February last year, Jamie Lynn shared a social media post of her own, saying she loves her sister 'very much'.
It followed speculation that she had attended a 'Free Britney' rally, but she clarified that someone had 'represented themselves' as her at the event.
She said: "A few media outlets ran a false story about me attending a virtual rally yesterday.
"In fact, someone represented themselves as me without my knowledge.
"I love my sister very much, but I was not aware of a rally, nor was I in attendance for a virtual rally."
In July, Jamie Lynn also asked people to stop sending 'death threats' to her family, pleading in an Instagram Story: "Hi, I respect that everyone has the right to express themselves, but can we please stop with the death threats, especially the death threats to children. – JLS."
She later posted another message in support of Britney, writing: "I felt like until my sister could speak for herself and say what she felt she needed to say publicly, it wasn’t my place and it wasn’t the right thing to do.
"But now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel I need to say. I think it’s extremely clear that since the day I was born that I’ve only loved adored and supported my sister."
She continued: "This is my freakin’ big sister before any of this bulls**t. I don’t care if she wants to run away to the rainforest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has so many times before.
"I have nothing to gain or lose either way. This situation does not affect me either way because I am only her sister who is only concerned about her happiness. I’ve made a very conscious choice in my life to only participate in her life as her sister."
Jamie Lynn added: "Maybe I didn’t support her the way the public would like me to with a hashtag on a public platform. But I can assure I have supported my sister long before there was a hashtag, and I’ll support her long after."
