Wain knifed Kieran, 18, in the heart outside their Coventry home in June.
A jury at the city’s crown court convicted her of murder.
A witness told them Wain had warned she would “stab anyone that came near” before the killing.
Passing sentence, judge Andrew Lockhart QC told her: “It’s a chilling insight into what was in your mind.”
In a statement issued by police, Mr Brown’s family described him as “a kind, loving son, grandson and great-grandson”.

“His life was cut short by the cruel actions of Ellie Wain in a fit of temper because things weren’t going her way,” they said.
“We won’t see Kieran grow into a man, he won’t get married or have children.
“There is no sentence that will bring Kieran back. Our family are living a life sentence of our own – a huge hole has been left where Kieran should be.”
