Now that Jamie Lynn Spears has broken things off with her baby daddy Casey Aldridge, she wants her baby Maddie all to herself. Insiders say the two are now embroiled in a nasty custody battle over the 20 month-old.
We first heard these rumors all the way back in 2008, but it seems Brit's younger sister is finally taking control. Jamie Lynn is now dating 28-year old wealthy businessman James Watson. And now Casey is reportedly trying to take his ex to court to make a little money off the split.
“Casey’s mom was overheard saying that if he wants financial stability, then he should fight for custody so Jamie Lynn would have to pay him child support,” a source told the National Enquirer. His family told him he could be another Kevin Federline and rake in the cash by being a stay-at-home dad!”
But Spears apparently would rather pay her ex off than have him be in their lives. “No way would she ever give in,” said the insider. “Jamie Lynn might even be willing to pay Casey just to keep him out of her and Maddie’s lives."
Insiders on Casey's side insist he cares about his daughter. They say, “We know he does truly love Maddie, and he’s not big on the idea of a nasty court case. But money is a driving force, and he’s weak when it comes to his mom and what she tells him to do. He’s really torn.”
It sounds like Jamie-Lynn will just have to pay up for Casey to go away quietly. And unfortunately it will probably be more than she had hoped! This is what happens when you get pregnant at such an early age!
