Casey Aldridge Isn't Jamie Lynn Spears' Baby's Daddy


December 27, 2007 05:00:38 GMT


The latest twist in Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy is that she's lying about her baby's daddy. Star Magazine insisted in its latest issue, on newsstands now, that the father of the actress' baby is not boyfriend Casey Aldridge and that her friends and family think it is an older man at her children's TV show "Zoey 101" who impregnated her.

Since an older man could be charged with statutory rape if revealed to be the father of an under-aged girl's baby, Casey thus "is being paid off to be the family's fall guy" because in Jamie Lynn's home state of Louisiana he would escape charges because a 16-years-old can legally have sex with someone less than two years older than her.
