Will Britney and Jamie Lynn Put The Past Behind Them?

Fans Think Gypsy Rose Blanchard Is Taking A Page From Britney Spears' Playbook

Although Jamie Lynn didn't attend Britney's 42nd birthday party along her mother and brother, a source told the U.S. Sun that the "Oops!... I Did It Again" singer is open to repairing her relationship with her younger sister after watching her compete on the British reality show.

“Britney was supportive of her sis going into the jungle and maintained interest while Jamie Lynn was in Oz. A lot of water has passed under that bridge — and given it is Christmas, Britney is keen to try and put some of their past issues to bed,” the source said at the time.

“On the few occasions when Jamie Lynn spoke about Britney in Australia, it was all positive. They are sisters at the end of the day, and even though they’ve had their fair share of run-ins, it is time to see if they can finally put the past behind them,” the insider continued. “Britney spent time with her mum in the summer and now she’d like to see if she could do the same with Jamie Lynn. It’s baby steps but it all seems positive.”
