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.)

Kalista, RIGHT ON!! That is my biggest objection, that Jamie is acting like this is so wonderful, and what a HORRID HORRID message that is to send to teens. Jamie will have money from selling her putrid story with her mother, but how many teens will think how romantic this all sounds when they can't even take care of themselves. These people, the Spears family, have pimped Jamie and her baby for money, and in the process, they have presented themselves as some kind of role models that should be applauded. I find this even more appalling than Jamie's pregnancy. There are diseases out there that HAVE NO CURE, has Mrs. Spears even addressed this? Of course not, she is just trying to present that family from hell as some kind of all-American family that should be put up on a pedastal. SHAME ON THE SPEARS FAMILY for not dealing with this in a quiet, classy manner. But of course, they wouldn't be making any money off the baby that way.

I agree with concerned mom. I just went on Viacom site to ask that they fire Jaime Lynn. She is not a good role model for young girls. I know the network is interested in profits, however, this is sending the wrong message. And now she will be getting 1 million for baby pictures? I mean really. It is rewarding bad, irresponsible behavior. This has got to stop!!!

45. 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...

Well said, Stephanie. By all acoounts, Lynn Spears is no better than a pimp. Worse even, because it's her own daughters she is pimping out. And now her unborn grandchild? And please, people, just because this white trash family is from Louisiana, don't lump all the good people of that state in the same basket as the Spears family. They would be white trash regardless of where they come from. And, no, I am not from Louisiana.

Let me tell you what--all this outrage? Such hypocrites you all are. My son is 21 --I look at his and many others Myspace pages. The things the girls say, and the pics they pose for, well it's not a problem if it's YOUR daughter, right? How many of you check on your kid's online activities? How many of you feel such outrage about that? Few, would be my guess.

Someone please give me a phone number of nickelodeon, I want that show pulled. What a shame that they are both an example of poor parenting...Their mother should be ashamed of herself for doing such an awful job with her children...Where are the parent's of these out of control girls? These types of role models is not what society needs.

If Jamie Lynn had done a different kind of "back end deal", she wouldn't be pregnant now.

Way to go, sweetie! Proving that you can do something even younger than big sis -- Melting down your career at the age of 16! Well done.

Abortion IS an alternative. Legal, too!

You people who are saying for her to try to miscarry or abort are the children that most likely should never have been born. How dare you pass judgement on her or anyone. It is her body and her decision. Thank God she is not asking any of ya'll for your opinions.

Get a life!

Children are perfect and precious. It is adults that are all effed up! God bless the child and the mother's that give up everything for them!
