Talk is heating up that Casey Aldridge isn't the father of Jamie Lynn Spears' baby like the young actress has publicly confirmed before.
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.
"Conveniently, Casey falls under the bar by just 26 days," the publication wrote. "The man many suspect is the father, however, would face charges and probably prison time if he were to come forward and admit he had sex with her."
Star Magazine, moreover, also quoted "two separate Spears family insiders" who believe the father is someone who works on Jamie Lynn's kids' show as saying, "Jamie Lynn has been working on Zoey since she was 13. In Hollywood, little girls grow up fast, and she is no exception. With everything that has gone on in her family, she needed someone to look up to. But the man she found seems to have completely taken advantage of her."
That's not all, another family source went on adding "Some of us have doubts as to the legitimacy of the claim that Casey is the father. Before the news of the pregnancy, how often did you see them together? Jamie Lynn has dated Casey on and off over the past two years. But it was not steady. In fact, she was looking to date Kevin Federline's brother about a year ago. Jamie Lynn went through a time of partying, and Casey was just a part of that."
