Britney Spears is taking aim at someone close to her —likely a family member — for their "righteous approach" to her conservatorship battle, claiming this person wasn't there for her when she needed it most.
Unmistakably, fans are convinced that Britney's sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, is the intended target of the message.
"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 … there's nothing worse than that !!!!" Britney unleashed on Instagram.
Pulling no punches, she continued, "How dare the people you love the most say anything at all … did they even put a hand out to even lift me up at the TIME !!!??? How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE … did you put your hand out when I was drowning ???? Again … NO …"
"If you're reading this and you know who you are … and you actually have the nerve to say anything about my situation just to save face for yourself publicly!!!," she continued. "If you're gonna post something …. Please stop with the righteous approach when you're so far from righteous it's not even funny."
Britney even included several middle finger emojis.
The words were attached to a message that read, "Never forget who ignored you when you needed them and who helped you before you even had to ask."
After the unquestionably direct message was posted, Britney's fans immediately zeroed in on Jamie Lynn.
"*cough*** Jamie Lynn *cough****," one person commented. Another said, "JAMIE LYNN IS SHAKING." A similar comment said, "JAMIE LYNN IS SINKING." Some of Britney's 31 million followers used snake emojis next to Jamie Lynn's name.
There is some belief that the message was directed at Britney's sister and mother, Lynne Spears — both of whom have publicly thrown support behind Britney recently.
"I've made a very conscious choice in my life to only participate in her life as her sister, as an aunt to her boys," Jamie Lynn said after Britney's bombshell testimony in court last month.
While addressing the court, Britney ripped her "whole family" for profiting off her via the conservatorship. As expected, the FreeBritney battalion came for the "Toxic" singer's family.
"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 you that I've supported my sister — long before there was a hashtag — and I'll support her long after," Jamie Lynn contended.
Lynne recently argued that Britney should be able to hire her own lawyer in her quest to end her 13-year conservatorship.
