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.)

Oh sure it's a back-end deal you can do that position too. There are many ways to get pregnant. TGhat's just one of them...

She is not the first 16 year old to get pregnant. She could take the easy way out and just have an abortion but she is doing the mature thing and taking responsibility for her actions. You need to remember that they are human beings just like you. If you don't like them then why take the time to read and comment about them?

There's nothing wrong with making money on this. The magazine does, so why shouldn't they compensate the people they are writing the stories about. Besides that Mom is hot, you can have those two girls I would like to have a little fling with Mom.Does anyone have any pooty shots of that Mom?

I think this is disgusting. If Nickelodeon does not immediately pull her show and get out of the contract they have with her they need to be boycotted by all. I don't have children, yet, but if I did they WOULD NOT watch her show! Clearly the Spears' family has some issues mentally, morally, and emotionally. These are not role models for our kids!

I think one million is too much! This is ridiculous! I think that Nickelodeon should cancel her show. She is not a positive role model for kids.

You see if Jamie Lynn had any brains at all, she would cash in on her sisters celebrity and model or something decent and stay on the up and up - but there's a genetic dysfunction in that family, so her fate is pretty much sealed. She could of started her career doing cheerleader pics or something... it's just so sad!

I FINALLY GIVE UP ON THE SPEARS FAMILY. NOT BECAUSE OF THE PREGNANCY BUT RATHER BECAUSE BRITNEY'S MOTHER HAS "NO CLASS". SHE DID NOT ANNOUNCE HER DAUGHTERS PREGNANCY UNTIL SHE HAD MONEY IN HER POCKET. HOW LOW CAN A PERSON GET..........HOW CAN A PERSON CRITISIZE BRITNEY WITH A MOTHER LIKE THAT...IN FACT, I FEEL SORRY FOR THE TWO GIRLS.

The Enquirer pegged it in late July. That means an April (or earlier) birth. Can't believe anything the Spears family say. They are chronic liars. Everything they do in their lives is manipulated to make money. No wonder they are all crazy. I suggest we all agree to only discuss Jamie on every Britney post. Let's see what Brit does.

"oh please" are YOU for real??? The gene pool lottery..are you riding the short bus. This family has a half brain cell between them all and they certainly don't know jack about birth control. This is a disgrace and for those of you who say "it happens everyday, who care"..well it happens everyday because nobody rises up and says "I care how disgusting and wrong this is"..it is rape and condoned rape at worst. After all that Britney has been through that has been self-inflicted could no one keep a closer eye on the young girl.

Saying they have half a brain cell is being generous, too!

I just hope the money gets put in a trust fund for the kid--we all know every penny JL ever made will be spent by the time the kid is born. Her pregnancy emancipates her and now her money is hers to spend as irresponsibly as her stupid sister. "Maternity Tatoos Y'all."
