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.)

To Reyes and Damn!

We were NOT all having sex at 16, and this is not about condemning someone who did. It is about this STUPID, but RICH aand FAMOUS "family" pimping out an unborn baby for cash money money. These "people" make me sick, as this would indeed, in any NORMAL world, be seen as statutory rape (even WITH the minors consent, it is STILL, BY LAW, SR), and NOT condoned by the families AS WELL AS THE MEDIA by PAYING them for their story! The Spears family is DISGUSTING, the whole lot of them...

I think it's crazy that we are so focused on what the Spears girls are doing and we have are men and women fighting in a war. Lets talk about things that matter. Who cares what gas station Britney is at, the girl obvisouly needs help and if the media leaves her alone maybe she will realize this. Why don't you talk about the families who are without their loved ones this holiday because they are fighting for our freedom. I really wish people would leave Britney alone, the girls obvisouly has issues and she needs to deal with it herself. I would be crazy if I always had camera's in my face as well. Lets talk about something that really matters for once.

What is the big deal? if this were any other 16 year old it would be because they would not be able to provide for this baby. Obviously she can provide for her child very well, so besides the fact that she is 16 there is no problem here. Good luck to her!

~ THIS SITUATION MAKES ME SAD ~ IS THERE NO FAMILY DIGNITY ANYMORE? ~ BY PLASTERING THIS YOUNG GIRL'S FACE AND SITUATION ON A CELEBRITY MAGAZINE IS JUST DEPLORABLE! ~ SHAME ON THE THE MOTHER FOR PIMPING OUT HER DAUGHTER AND FUTURE GRANDCHILD? ~ OUR NATION IS BECOMING NUMB TO MORALS AND ETHICS BECAUSE OF THESE TYPES OF SITUATIONS . . . IT'S BECOMING THE NORM TO BE UNMARRIED AND PREGNANT AND THE CHILDREN GROW UP MISSING DEEP ROOTED FAMILY VALUES. ~ I'M NOT A PRUDE, I WOULD JUST LOVE TO HAVE SEEN THIS FAMILY QUIETLY HANDLE THIS WITH GRACE AND LEAVE IT OUT OF THE RAG MAGS . . . THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A P.R. AGENT WHO COULD HAVE MADE A SIMPLE STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF THE FAMILY AND LET IT GO AT THAT. ~ NO WONDER BRITTNEY IS SUCH A WRECK, LOOK AT HER EARLY CHILDHOOD ROLE MODEL MOTHER! ~

Lynne Spears needs serious psychotherapy!!!! Mother and daughter have actually ruined the life of a young man who has not been in the eyes of the public until now by broadcasting this to the world through Ok! Magazine. Lynn Spears has proven with this latest family crisis she has no common sense and questionable personal values when it comes to the rearing of children.

To everyone reading these blogs about the Spears girls, teach your children to be their own role models!

Yucks!    

Is everything about money with Lynne Spears? Next she"ll try and write a book about Sean Preston and Jaden James called "The Diaper Diaries:A Tell All!". She needs to sit her ass down somewhere and quit trying to live out her dreams of fame through her daughters! She is the female version of Joe Jackson!

How funny....to say that Jamie Lynn is not an international star. HELL, whoever said she was ANY KIND of STAR?????? A minor celebrity riding on her big sisters coattails is more like it. Now she'll have something to play house with. Another life her mother and father can screw up royally.

Yeah...can't be bothered right? Didn't think so..losers!
