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"kalista: abortion only "messes with your head" because sanctimonious busybodies like you have worked hard these last 30 years to condemn it. I think having a kid at 16 "messes with your head" a great deal more. You don't like abortiion? Cool I respect your decision--I'd never force you to have one. Why do people with your beliefs feel they have to force people with my beliefs to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term? Personally I believe you shouldnt have had that lobotomy, but who am I to judge. Stay out of my personal medical decisions and i'll stay out of yours.

# 107 If you read the whole thing you will see that I also said that decidng to have an abortion is a very hard decision that is not for everyone. I said that adoption was also a good idea. I also spoke about using two forms of birth control instead of one. I get it you're pro life so as soon as you saw me metion abortion you stopped reading but if you go back and finsh you'll see I also support keeping the baby and giving it to a loving stable couple. I like to give people ALL the options. Even the ones that aren't pleasant. I belive peole should always be well informed.

Since when did it become legal to rape a 16 year old girl impregnate her and everybody seem like there nothing wrong with it. Seems also like his parents dont give a crap that he raped her. Shes underage and cannot consent to sex!

if only Lynn Spears had given more time & attention to her kids..
Sounds like she spent more time chatting w/ OK Magazine! The kid is
16.. Didn't she LIVE w/ mama spears? She has the kid's $$.. It's not
like she has to work 3 jobs to put food on the table & keep a roof
over their heads. Seems like she had the time to keep tabs on her
daughter.
POP CULTURE MOM INDEED- A PHOTO SHOOT IS WHAT SHE & HER DAUGHTER REALLY NEED TO FOCUS ON NOW!!! feel sorry for the baby!

Sounds to me as if Grandma could care less about her children and grandchildren and only wants more $$$ for herself. She is still the legal guardian of Jamie Lynn, correct? So, Jamie Lynn and her baby probably won't see much the million, as Momma has access to all of it and will continue to do so until Jamie turns 18. Hmmmm something to ponder.

I had an abortion at 15, because I knew I did not want a kid (1984). No emotional scars~ I never even think about it. It was actually the best decision I could have ever made, and I'm glad I didn't F-up my life by having a kid at 15.
BTW~ my birth control failed. I was probably doing it wrong.

Abortion does not scar everyone for life~ only those who chose to wallow in it are bothered by it.

Jamie Lynn says it is a shock to both of them??? WTF????? Does she not know how babies are conceived? She apprears to be as dumb as her older sister. And WHY would OK pay 1 mil for a photo shoot of a nobody? Just another trailer trash slut in the Spears family!

Thank you, river rat. And thank you also for your statement about the state of Louisiana. There are good and bad people everywhere. It is just unfortunate that this brainless kid had to make a statement to the media about raising the kid "normal in Louisiana"...that is like asking for it, considering how she and her sister turned out.

Sad and pathetic, the entire Spears lot.

I got pregnant at 15 because my parents kept their porn in the garage, and I found it when I was about 14. By the time I started my period, I was ready to "become a woman". Thanks Mom & Dad~ great job!

The abortion I had doesn't bother me one bit~ no "emotional scars". What the hell are "emotional scars", anyways? Like I'm supposed to be upset with myself for doing the best thing I could have done for myself? What ever.
