Britney Spears has done a shocking about-face ... praising a family member, no less her sister.
Britney marked her 41st birthday with a message to Jamie Lynn ... "It’s my b-day but you’re my heart so I’m thinking about you … congratulations on being so brave, inspiring, and showing guts and glory in your show 🎉 !!! You ain’t alone … if anybody knows what that feels like … I get it 🤧🤧🤧 My baby sister !!! I love you !!!"
This is a 180 from Britney's tirade against her 31-year-old sibling, whom she called "scum" after J.L. released her memoir.
Whatever's changed ... well, maybe it's true -- time heals all.
BTW, it's worth noting -- while Brit seems to be sulking in their rocky past, Jamie Lynn is on to bigger and better things in her own life. After dropping her memoir earlier this year, she's now one of the contestants on FOX's new reality competition show, 'Special Forces: World's Toughest Test.' She's one of 16 celebs pushing themselves to the limit in military exercises.
JL is certainly a key figure this season, so it'll be interesting to see how she holds up -- and if any talk of Britney is mentioned. The new series hits airwaves on Jan. 4.
