Britney Spears isn’t the only one who was facing a rather toxic environment in her home while growing up. Jamie Lynn Spears also had a rather rocky relationship when she was young and living with her parents.
The former Zoey 101 star has written a book about what life was like with her family and there are apparently a few blockbuster pieces of information in her writing.
Jamie Lynn Spears’ Pregnancy Drama
When she did become pregnant, she was nursing a rather clean cut reputation as one of the biggest stars on the Disney Channel. Her character in Zoey 101 was considered among the most popular on television when talking about younger viewers.
However, the channel believed it could not have a series where one of its stars was a teen mom. The show was unceremoniously canceled and Jamie Lynn Spears became known among some who used to be her fans as a kind of Jezebel. It appears her parents took the same kind of view of their pregnant daughter.
According to a report stemming from the book, the star’s parents tried everything they could to get her to give up the baby. It appears the best-case scenario would be adoption, though they also reportedly pushed abortion.
For Jamie Lynn Spears, her inner circle had one message. They feared having a baby would ruin her career.
“You are just too young,” she reportedly wrote in the book. “You don’t know what you’re doing. There are pills you can take. We can help you take care of this problem … I know a doctor.'”
Teens In Trouble
Jamie Lynn Spears was 16 years old when she first revealed that she and her boyfriend Casey Aldridge were expecting a baby.
Eventually, the couple would get engaged and move in together after daughter Maddie was born in June of 2008.
In her book, while she says that there were several options discussed, the now 30-year-old singer and actor said that abortion and adoption were both pushed hard on her.
This is far from the first time that the performer has talked about that period of time in her life. In her 2014 song “Shotgun Wedding” she sang about a teen girl who was involved in a young romance when she suddenly became pregnant. The song also talks about a hastily planned wedding for those young lovers.
However, while those sorts of details have been made public before, talk of abortion especially is something that hasn’t been talked about by Jamie Lynn Spears or any other member of her family until the book.
