Over the past couple weeks since Jamie Lynn Spears revealed she’s pregnant at age 16, she’s been the subject of much gossip, but this story if true has the potential to propel her to Britney levels. According to Star Magazine via Showbiz Spy, Casey Aldridge may not be the father of the baby after all.
Friends have said they were no longer dating, and “two separate Spears family insiders” believe the real father is an executive on her TV show Zoey 101. The reason behind claiming Casey is the father, they say, is that the actual father would be charged with statutory rape, something that was (foolishly) discussed as a possibility for Casey before we found out he was just slightly less than two years older than she is.
“Casey is being paid off to be the family’s fall guy while the real father remains unidentified,” says Star magazine.
“In Hollywood, little girls grow up fast, and she is no exception,” one of the sources said. “With everything that has gone on in her family, she needed someone to look up to… But the man she found seems to have completely taken advantage of her.”
Another source added, “Some of us have doubts as to the legitimacy of the claim that Casey is the father… Before the news of the pregnancy, how often did you see them together?”
