Jamie Lynn Spears calls Britney and Justin Timberlake her 'parents' and says 'divorce is hard'

Britney Spears' little sister Jamie Lynn has made a rare comment about the Baby One More Time singer's relationship with Justin Timberlake

Britney Spears' little sister has made a joke about her old relationship with Justin Timberlake.

Jamie Lynn, 29, joked that the former couple were her "parents" and that they'd been through a difficult "divorce".

Her big sister dated Justin for three years and they were pop's golden couple before they split up in 2002.

One of the most memorable moments of their relationship was when they attended the 2001 American Music Awards together in matching blue denim outfits.

Britney, now 39, was dressed in a strapless denim gown and carried a matching denim handbag, while Justin, also 39, wore a full denim suit with a cowboy hat in the same material.

Nylon magazine shared a picture of the couple wearing the kooky outfits to Instagram celebrate the iconic moment's 20th anniversary this week.

They wrote: "This superb outfit coordination took place 20 years ago this month.

"And I promise it doesn't make me feel old knowing that."
