Jamie Lynn's Back-End Deal

12/19/2007 1:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Jamie Lynn Spears was not paid for this week's magazine interview ... yet. We're told the money will change hands down the road -- when the baby is born.
Lynne and Jamie Lynn
Just how did the deal go down? Rewind. Sources close to Britney's family tell TMZ it all started when Britney melted down on an OK! Magazine photo shoot. 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.

We're told Jamie and mom did not want money, but OK! has agreed to pay $1 million to the younger Spears for a photo shoot when the child is born. Why so little when others have commanded several million? We're told it's because Jamie Lynn is not an international star and it's not worth it to the mag to pay big bucks for something they can't sell overseas.

Another interesting note: We hear Jamie is further along than the 12 weeks she says in the mag's article. Expect a spring baby.

(BTW: It appears that the OK! servers have crashed because of the site traffic.)

miswanted pregnancy or not - it is still not right to kill a baby. children are as innocent as they come - if you dont want to have a child - adoption. just because you are afraid of what people might say about you while you're pregnant doesn't mean that baby deserves to die. jamie lynn is making a good decision and isn't coping out like people who get abortions. it's a easy fix that takes away all responsibility for your actions. for those of you who feel like baby killing is okay, check out

To each his own, and no, I don't have children, nor do I want any. Nor do I think about the birthady of a non existent person who never was. You have very strong beliefs in one direction, and I, like millions of others, have strong beliefs in another direction. I refuse to resort to name calling, unlike you.

I hate to hear people pull the whole " abortion makes you unable to have kids later, or you'll have so many emotional scars" I agree with Petite. I'm a grown woman 48 i have three great kids and a loving husband. I had an abortion when I was 17. No emotional scars, I had kids later on, I got to finish high school, go on to college all the way up to grad school where I met my husband. It was the best thing I could've done for myself. If I had kept it I was going to have to drop out of school to get a job maybe even two jobs and move into some apartment with the baby's father, and I'd probably still be working some dead end job to this day. I have friend poor thing is now trying to enroll in some vocational training and become a CNA, her husband/high school boyfriend is so unsupportive it's sad but they stay together because honestly neither of them can make it on their own and afford to care for their five kids. I respect people who have objects and I'd never force my life choices down your throat, please give me and others the same respect. I have no emotional scars and a happy family. I know I made the best decision for me.

Why do you tell me to "get some help"? What makes you think I'm in need of help? I'm a perfectly adjusted adult, comfortable life, homeowner, dog owner, boat owner, ...I could go on and on. At least half the people on this blog feel exactly the same way I do~ Pro Choice. A 15 yr old should NOT have a baby, even if it's given away. THAT would be a far worse "scar" than not letting a bunch of cells grow into a person.

I eat meat and wear leather, too. OH GOD! THE HORROR!

What a travesty. This little slut whore goes and gets pregnant and now is getting paid a million bucks for it. She doesn't deserve that kid, and it would be the one time I would enjoy seeing someone suffer a miscarriage. How pathetic.

Wow, I am always surprised to find the level of maturity so low in comment sections. I shouldn’t be anymore but I am. First of all, if they have been dating exclusively and he’s the only guy she’s been bumping uglies with, then she’s not really a slut is she? I believe most people refer to that as a “committed monogamous relationship”. Secondly, I am pretty sure that she does not live in anything remotely close to a trailer. I know I know, you can take the trash out of the trailer…blah blah……but seriously, there are girls out there younger than JL that have no money, no job, no family support etc. and they make it work. I am sure she and her baby will be fine.

16, yeah sure that is young, but according to statistics, 500, 000 girls between 15-17 get preggo every year. So there are 499,999 other girls that are probably a lot worse off than Jamie-Lynn Spears. And nobody is lining up to pay them $1 million for pics of there newborn babies…….Teenagers have done it behind their parents backs, probably since the beginning of time. Her parents aren't to blame, Taboos around sex are. The more you make something dirty and forbidden, the more people want to do it. And teenagers aren't exactly known for impulse control. It makes no difference who her sister is, or where her parents were, the fact is, when horny teens want to get it on, they do. As for the age difference, three years, who gives a rat's ass? If the guy was 30, yeah okay, go ewwwww and start talking statutory rape, but the guy is barely out of highschool. Law or no law, if horny teenagers think they're in love, sometimes babies happen.

I don't usually judge people but, I think it's obsurd that these Spears' girls have no one telling them that there is more out there in life then having sex and children, especially @ 16 years old! And her mother is going to write a book on parenting?? Take a look at your sister, Jamie Lynn having a baby is not just "having a baby" you whole life is going to change and paying a nanny to take care of your child will never compare to the joy of raising a child on your own with someone you love. I don't care how rich and famous you are, at 16 you are NOT ready to have a baby and be a mother. You may not realize it now but you will!

You did the right thing for you and those criticizing your (wise) decision should close their mouths, unplug their ear canals, and open their eyes for a wide-range of options or choices (all of which are called God)!

My friend in the early 60s made the same spiritually "evolved" choice and, as a result, the quality of her life, her future husband and children, has been wonderful! As you have observed for your own life, there are far too many suffering children in this world due to the fact the mothers were ill-prepared to handle the tremendous responsibility and commitment of parenting.

Hats off to you, "Petite"!

i guess everyone signing this petition and posting how she's a slut is perfect? all innocent virgins until they were married? gimmie a break people... how many teenagers are having sex before they're married?????? it's called an accident for a reason... whether she could of been more careful or not is a different story, but what happened happened and instead of running out adn getting an abortion she is putting her whole life and career on hold to raise the child... she's 16! how many people here had to make a decision like that???? probably not many of you yet you think you have the right to sit here and judge someone else... she's a child. she made a mistake. because she was having sex does not make her a slut!!!!! i though by this time we were past the notion of women being labeled sluts for things like having sex or getting pregnant unmarried??? she's a young girl, clearly lacking parental guidance, who made a mistake, and is now taking responsiblity for it... yea, fire her. teach her a great lesson. i guess you people never made mistakes? if you don't want your kids to use her as a role model give them something else... hollywood stars shouldn't be your kids role models anyway. her mother should of not let her 16 year old daughter live with her older boyfriend.. she was just waiting for this type of accident to happen. she's how old? she knows a lot better then a 16 year old girl probably in love for the first time.

I don't get why this girl wasn't on birth control if her mother knew she was sleeping with her boyfriend?? Nothing on earth is more fertile than two 16 year olds. They are designed to reproduce. In colonial America, many very young brides walked down the aisle pregnant. As long as they got married, no one cared. The major purpose of our existence is to reproduce. And nothing reproduces better than a teenager. It is sad for this young woman to have to be a mom in a society that thinks that 16 is still a "baby". Mother Nature was the boss here. At least she is willing to have the baby. That's life. It ain't always pretty, y'all.

by the way, this girl made her own CHOICE, but to all the people out there yelling at other people for suggesting she have an abortion, what's wrong with that????? it was her choice. not yours. and no one elses. abortion is not murdering a child... look up the details before you twist things into your religious view that suits your needs. sometimes killing a cluster of cells (a flys brain has more cells then said cluster in the beginning of pregnancy) is the better option! and every person should make that choice between them and a DOCTOR and their family. no one else forcing their religious views on them. abortion is not an "easy fix" ... no one runs to the abortion clinic for fun, it's a serious decision and that can often be the best decision.

and kalista- do you know that she wasn't using a condom or on the pill???? heard of "accidents"??? some might consider a young child having a child herself, especially depending on her situation to be a lot more damaging to her and the child then having the abortion. people deserve to consider ALL alternatives. whether other people NOT INVOLVED like them or not!
