BRITNEY Spears' sister Jamie Lynn has accused EV giant Tesla of killing her cats.
The I'm A Celeb Star pointed the finger at Elon Musk in a now-deleted Instagram video, where she said her felines kept being hit by cars.
The 32-year-old claimed her beloved pets were being killed by Teslas because they couldn't hear the quiet motors coming.
She wrote on social media: “We have now lost — I don’t want to tell you how many cats — because they don’t hear the Tesla crank and unfortunate things happen and it’s really devastating and tragic for everyone involved.
“Elon Musk, let’s figure this out. You owe me a couple cats.”
This week it was announced Jamie Lynn will appear in the jungle alongside professional boxer Tony, Nigel Farage and Nick Pickard.

It's not unusual for Tesla to be a talking point.
One owner said he loves his Model 3 but says driving his EV causes a very unexpected problem.
Co-founder of PerfectRec Wally Nowinksi, 38, paid £47,600 ($58,790) for the flash electric motor in July 2020, wanting to be able to drive car long distances.
He was living in San Francisco, California, at the time and the ability to get out of the city became more pressing as the Covid-19 pandemic hit and he wanted to get to Michigan to visit his parents.
