On Thursday night, Britney Spears wrote a lengthy Twitter post in which she reacted to what her sister Jamie Lynn Spears had said in her interview with ABC News' Juju Chang. On Friday, Jamie Lynn responded to what her sister wrote by saying that Britney's "accusatory posts" are causing her family to receive death threats.

In her post, Britney wrote, "The 2 things that did bother me [in the interview was] that my sister said was how my behavior was out of control. She was never around me much 15 years ago at that time .... so why are they even talking about that unless she wants to sell a book at my expense??? REALLY???"

Britney said she was also bothered by Jamie Lynn's discussion of how Britney was upset that she'd performed remixes of her songs on an awards show.

Britney wrote, "I know it may sound like a silly thing to most people but I wrote a lot of my songs and my sister was the baby. She never had to work for anything." She added, "Everything was always given to her."

Britney concluded by saying, "Hope your book does well, Jamie Lynn!!!...my family ruined by dreams 100 billion percent and try to make me look like the crazy one...my family loves to pull me down and hurt me always so I am disgusted with them."

On Friday, Jamie Lynn responded in a lengthy Instagram post, writing, "Brit...you know behind the scenes I have always been here. It's become exhausting when conversations, and texts we have in private don't match what you post on social media."

She continued, "The things being said are absolutely not the truth and I have to clarify that, because now it's getting harder for me to rationalize to my oldest daughter why our family continues to get death threats, as a result of their aunt's vague and accusatory posts, especially when we know she could tell the truth and put an end to all of it in one second if she wanted to."

Jamie Lynn also clarified that her book is "not about [Britney]," adding, "I can't help that I was born a Spears too and that some of my experiences involve my sister." She also said that contrary to what Britney claimed, she had worked hard to build her own career.

"I don't want drama, but I'm speaking my truth to heal my traumas," she concluded, adding, "I will always love my big sister and be here for her. It's time to put an end to the unhealthy chaos that has controlled my life for so long."

How far would you go to see a free Doja Cat concert?  One fan's scheme to get into a free show by the singer over the weekend in Indianapolis, IN ended up with his arrest.

The Indianapolis Star reports that just before 5pm on Saturday, concertgoers lined up for first-come, first-served entry into Monument Circle, where the show -- part of AT&T's Playoff Playlist Live concert series -- was being held.  But when one fan attempted to jump the line by claiming he had a bomb, he was taken into custody.

“A fan wanted to advance in line so he exercised very poor judgment and told those around him in line he had a bomb in his backpack," Deputy Chief Joshua Barker told the paper. "Someone did the right thing and alerted IMPD. The backpack was clean.” 

In a Twitter message, police later revealed that the man had "unrelated outstanding warrants and was promptly arrested for those."

The show, which also included AJR, was part of the festivities surrounding the College Football Playoff national championship on Monday.
