Move aside BRITNEY, cousin coming through. Yes, it seems that yet another of the TOXIC singer's family are hoping to try their luck as a pop star with cousin ALLI SIMS planning to release an album.

According to reports, the 23-year-old from Louisiana is hoping launch her own music career after getting fed-up with BRITNEY's erratic behaviour.

Sims has spent the past six months as her cousin's assistant and has witnessed first hand BRITNEY's unceremonious downfall - with incidents ranging from shaving her head to ruining designer clothes and allegedly threatening to 'kill' member of the paparazzi.

But ALLI insists that she is not destined to become a pop starlet like her famous family member but instead will have a go at an altogether different style of music.

She told US magazine People: "I don't dance, I'm not pop. I have a more bluesy voice, more NORAH JONES-ish. I don't want to appeal to just my age group and younger."

She added that BRITNEY had been impressed with her vocals, saying: "She heard my songs on the laptop and was like, 'I love this song! This is you singing?'"
