Britney Spears' sister Jamie Lynn Spears has turned off her comments on her Instagram posts following her sister's emotional statement.
Jamie Lynn, 30, came under fire after her sister Britney, 39, said her "whole family did nothing" as she spoke out in her conservatorship court hearing earlier this week.
In an emotional statement in her conservatorship hearing Toxic singer Britney discussed the restrictions she had been put under.
As she discussed being put on lithium against her will – which made her feel "drunk" – and how she had six different nurses visit her home she said: "Not only did my family not do a god damn thing, my dad was all for it."
She later added: "I would honestly like to sue my family to be totally honest with you".
Following her emotional testimony, Britney's younger sister Jamie Lynn and her mother Lynne Spears turned off their comments on their Instagram pages.
And, according to Vulture, Britney's mother's attorney, who was at the court hearing, said: "Today is the day while the world watches while we listen to to Ms. Spears … that we put in place a plan. That is her mother’s request. That we not leave the court without having a plan."
Meanwhile, Britney's father Jamie Spears, who has acted as a conservator for Britney since 2008, issued a statement which read: "He is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain.
"Mr Spears loves his daughter very much."
Britney's sister Jamie previously discussed her sister Britney's mental health on Instagram last year, following reports of Kanye West's public breakdown.
She re-shared a post which read: "If you deal with mental illness, then you know how important it is to respect the situation with privacy for the person, and the family trying to protect their loved ones, no matter how it may appear to the public and as the public we must learn to do the same.
"I pray this doesn't bring shame to anyone dealing with mental illness, you are not alone and you are loved. Sending all my love and prayers to all of you."

One Instagram user commented in response: "How about your sisters OBVIOUS mental illness? Why don't you speak on that?"
Jamie then hit back as she said: "You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters
"She is a strong, bada*s, unstoppable woman, and that’s the only thing that is OBVIOUS."
