Lawyer's for the Nickelodeon star, Jamie Lynn Spears, the little sister of the shameless Britney Spears who I secretly want to befriend and shake some sense into, sent this statement to National Enquirer magazine a few months before Jamie Lynn announced her pregnancy in a December issue of OK! Magazine:
“Ms. Spears is a devout Christian with a spotless reputation, who lives in accordance with the highest moral and ethical standards in accordance with her faith.
There is no rumor concerning Ms. Spears’ (non-existent) pregnancy, except perhaps for the baseless rumor just now being created by the National Enquirer.
Ms. Spears is not pregnant. It is pathetic for the National Enquirer to attempt to create a wholly baseless rumor 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.” Source
Now, how could this have been handled differently? It is very possible that the lawyers were not informed that Jamie Lynn was actually pregnant, so how else could they possibly have handled the situation?
Also, what do you think about the decision to postpone mama Spears’ book on parenting? I know... I wanted to laugh, too.
And, do you think Nickelodeon’s rumored plan to do a teen pregnancy special is a good idea?
Let’s hear it!
