Britney Spears claims Lynn Spears is worse than her mom in Crossroads
Britney shared a clip from her film Crossroads on Instagram. Britney’s on-screen mother was unsupportive of her journey to stardom in Los Angeles. But according to Britney, her actual mom Lynne Spears was even worse.

Britney wrote in the caption, “Scene in a movie I did a ways back !!! When I realized my whole journey to find my mom … and she doesn’t want to see me !!! I know … PRETTY F***ING SAD !!! I mean ??? … Psss I mean it’s actually less worse than what my mom did to me in real life so…”

Crossroads turns 20 this year
Crossroads came out in 2002, which means 2022 is the 20th anniversary of the movie’s release.
Britney Spears starred as Lucy, a Georgia teen determined to make it in Hollywood. Lucy goes on a road trip with her childhood friends and gets resistance from her on-screen mother, played by Kim Catrall. Shonda Rhimes wrote the screenplay, which was Britney’s first major film.
Director Tamra Davis said Britney was a big fan of Sex and the City. She explained, “That was her favorite show. That’s why we went with her. Kim is who we wanted and we’re so excited that she would do this. She was a Britney fan, so we had a fantastic time. That was a dream scenario.”
Davis continued, “[Spears] hired Shonda to write the script and she worked really closely with her. It was incredibly exciting. Shonda was just this incredibly intelligent force to be reckoned with.”
Davis conveyed a desire to get the cast together again and potentially create a sequel.
