What a good sister! Britney Spears is having trouble dealing with online criticism and her little sis, Jamie Lynn Spears, has the best advice on how to help her out.

“Jamie Lynn told Britney that sometimes the healthiest thing is to step back and take a break,” a source exclusively told Life & Style. “Britney is so super sensitive and vulnerable and reading all the comments people leave on her page can be really damaging to her. Jamie Lynn is one of the very few people who can speak candidly to Britney and be honest with her.”

Britney, 38, has had a whirlwind of a year, so she needs all the support she can get. “She truly lives in a bubble because the only people she sees are Sam [Asghari], her bodyguards/staff and her boys. She doesn’t have people giving her feedback on how she looks. So when she reads these comments, it’s like a slap in the face,” the insider added.

Like her sister, Brit’s beau is equally overprotective of her. The 25-year-old took to Instagram to defend his lady from online trolls. It all started when the blonde beauty encouraged the haters to keep the negativity away. “Happy holidays friends!!!! I love sharing with you all … but it’s been hard to keep wanting to share because people say the meanest things!!!” Britney captioned an IG post she shared on December 15. “If you don’t like a post … just keep it to yourself and unfollow that person!!! There’s no reason to ever go out of your way to make mean comments and bully people 😢😢😢 Stay happy and nice this holiday season y’all and God Bless!!!!!”

Sam replied in the comments, “It’s so easy to cyber attack and hide behind their phones and write mean comments, but when they run into you in real life all of the sudden they act like they have been such a huge fan and want a picture #haterplease,” Hopefully, Brit is able to pay no mind to the negative attention!
