Washington (ANI): Jamie Lynn Spears, the 17-year-old who gave birth to daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge three months ago, is not pregnant, a pal has said. The 'National Enquirer' reported that Jamie was expecting again and had her friends begging her to abort. However, a very close Spears family friend sacked the alleged reports claiming them to be untrue.
"I was with Lynne [Spears] all day today and she thinks it's totally ridiculous," Fox News quoted the source as telling Tarts. "I can tell you that the pregnancy rumour is just that - a rumour. There is no truth to it at all," the source added.
The teen actress' rep has further denied the speculation. However, the news of Jamie Lynn expecting her first child was broken by the Enquirer, which was later threatened with legal consequences by her lawyer. In a letter to the publication, her attorney had claimed: "Ms. Spears is not pregnant.
"It is pathetic for the National Enquirer to attempt to create a wholly baseless 'rumour' that Ms. Spears is pregnant, so it can run a malicious story and false story which would be emotionally devastating to a morally upright 16-year-old girl."
The teen mum had later confirmed to 'OK!' magazine that she would soon be a mother. Interestingly, her elder sister Britney also delivered her two boys Sean Preston and Jayden James almost exactly one year apart. However, Jamie Lynn's legal team is yet to issue a statement on the matter.
