The Toxic star and 16-year-old Jamie Lynn were going for dinner at a Beverly Hills sushi restaurant, when an unknown woman – who lives near the star’s Malibu home – yelled at Britney: “Nobody wants you in this neighbourhood Britney, move, you are making this neighbourhood very unsafe.”

Paparazzi following Britney leapt to her defence, telling the woman to “f**k off”, while a furious Jamie Lynn hit back at the brunette, shouting: “Well, move the f**k out then!”

The woman then tried to raise her hands to Jamie Lynn and a worried Britney pleaded with the photographers to protect them.

Jamie Lynn told a video cameraman: “Don’t let her come near me. Don’t let her touch me anymore.”

Britney – who is constantly followed by the paparazzi everywhere she goes – was reunited with Jamie Lynn and her estranged mother Lynne at the weekend.

The 25-year-old star – who recently lost custody of her two young sons – had not spoken to her mother for months, but the pair have decided to put their difference behind them.
