Jamie Lynn Spears broke down in tears on “Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test” as she mused on being Britney Spears’ little sister.
“Growing up, my sister became famous, worldwide famous, when I was very young,” the “Zoey 101” alum said during the Fox reality show’s premiere Wednesday.
“I’m so proud of her, love her to death, but I don’t know. Sometimes I feel like I don’t really have anything for myself,” she continued.
Jamie Lynn elaborated in a confessional that while she is “extremely proud” of Britney’s success, she yearns to have her “own identity” and “be seen as [her] own person” rather than living in the pop superstar’s shadow.
“I struggle with self-esteem all the time,” she admitted.
The Spears sisters have had a turbulent relationship in recent years, with Britney, 41, claiming Jamie Lynn, 31, failed to help her break free from the conservatorship that their father, Jamie Spears, put the “Toxic” singer under in February 2008.
