Jamie Lynn Spears set up $1 million deal with tabloid
Jamie Lynn Spears confirmed her pregnancy to OK! Magazine while being interviewed with her mother and is receiving no compensation – yet. The magazine has agreed to pay $1 million for a photo shoot when the baby is born which will be sooner than people think. Supposedly Jamie Lynn is more than 12 weeks pregnant. But why choose OK! and not another tabloid? Apparently it has to do with Britney having a breakdown months ago during a photo shoot with the magazine, according to TMZ:
Britney’s mom, Lynne, read the article (who didn’t?!) and called OK! personally to thank them “for handling it so well.” She stayed in touch with OK!, and called them this week when she learned that news of Jamie’s pregnancy was about to break. Her only requirement? Keep Britney out of it. This is about Jamie Lynn. “She trusted them to do it in a way that would be sympathetic to her daughter,” our source says.
It sounds like Lynne Spears is getting her head out of her ass and doing some smart parenting by keeping Britney out of this debacle. Of course, I won’t be fully impressed until Lynne builds a giant armored dome around the house so Britney can’t get near the baby. Just make sure it masks the smell of fried chicken. I once read in a newspaper that Britney chewed through a bank vault after finding out a guard inside had KFC for lunch. And by newspaper I may or may not mean this napkin I scribbled on with a pen.
