The 29-year-old actress gave a rare interview with the magazine where she talked about the Zoey 101 reboot, growing up in the spotlight, and her teen pregnancy. At no point did Jamie Lynn get asked about the conservatorship battle involving her famous sister Britney.
Clearly, there was an agreement beforehand not to get into any of the court issues currently going on with Britney.
Britney and Jamie’s mother, Lynne Spears, told Nylon, “Jamie Lynn’s childhood was like none other. She came into this world unexpectedly, yet so adored by all the moment she arrived.”
Jamie spoke about fans’ misconception that her Nickelodeon show “Zoey 101” was canceled due to her pregnancy with her first kid. She said the show had wrapped six months before she found out she was pregnant.
She said everyone seems to believe the network axed the show after finding out.
Jamie Lynn says that never happened. She admits they debated on whether they should air the remainder of the episodes but says the show was not canceled.
She spoke about her insecurities while filming the hit show. She told the magazine, “Just in the simple things of being in wardrobe every day, and for the first time not feeling great in my outfit or thinking that girl’s prettier than me. It was all those insecurities that were very much just like every other girl has, but I just happened to be on TV. I got very insecure about a lot of things, especially in young Hollywood, and that was the time where it was very heavy with the paparazzi.”
She spoke about getting pregnant at 16-years-old while with her first love Casey Alridge. The two split in 2010 but they share a daughter named Maddie together.
Jamie said, “You have your first love, or what you call love in high school. You think it’s forever, and then, oh my gosh, I’m pregnant. I am mortified to have to tell my parents this and my family this. I do not care what TMZ thinks about it.”
She added, “That was all I was thinking about: ‘These are the people I love that I have to tell, and also, I’m pregnant. There’s a human being growing inside of me, and I’m so young, I’m almost a baby myself.’ I didn’t really care about any of that nonsense, but when we did announce that I was pregnant, I did hideaway for a little bit during that time and I didn’t have a phone. But of course, the paparazzi still found me. It’s not like I was in LA walking down the middle of the most popular boulevard; I was in the middle of nowhere Mississippi.”
The word conservatorship does not appear in the article. Jamie only spoke about Britney giving her advice on recording the Zoey 101 theme song but didn’t speak about her sister’s current situation.
As The Blast previously reported, Britney recently scored a huge victory in the conservatorship battle. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge granted a motion allowing Britney to hire outside counsel to represent her in the case.
Britney’s father Jamie Spears had objected to the request and called into question Britney’s mental state.
